Strong to even severe storms possible late Wednesday into
Wednesday night...

Discussion
A trough of low pressure located over the central united states
will move east this week and be over the eastern united states by
late this week. The trough will also strengthen while moving east
this week pushing a stationary front over the southeastern united
states southward into the florida peninsula.

Today and tonight...

the winds will be southerly today over south florida allowing the
focus of shower and thunderstorm activity to be over the lake
okeechobee and northeast portions of south florida this
afternoon. The west coast metro areas should remain dry today,
while rest of south florida could see a few showers this
afternoon.

The showers and thunderstorms should end this evening over south
florida due to the lost of daytime heating. However, due to the
southerly wind flow over south florida, the metro areas could
still see a few showers through the overnight hours. Therefore, a
slight chance of pops will remain in place this evening over all
of south florida and continuing over the metro areas through the
overnight hours.

Wednesday through Thursday...

the wind flow will become southwesterly on Wednesday and Wednesday
night ahead of the cold front bringing in deep tropical moisture
to the area. This will allow for showers and thunderstorms to
develop over south florida Wednesday afternoon through Thursday
with the best coverage Wednesday night into Thursday morning.

The latest short range models continue to show a mid to upper
level jet of 100 to 130 knots moving around the base of the
trough Wednesday night through central florida along with a low
level jet of 50 knots. This will allow for a possible squall line
to develop on Wednesday over northern florida and move southward
into south florida Wednesday night into Thursday morning. At this
time it looks like winds and hail will be the primary threats to
south florida, but a tornado cannot be rule out over south
florida. SPC continues to show a slight risk of severe weather
over the northern areas of south florida with a marginal risk of
severe weather over the southern areas of south florida for
for mainly Wednesday night.

The pwat values will also be increasing from 1.4 inches Wednesday
morning to 1.9 inches by Thursday morning which is close to the
maximum for this time of year. This will allow for some heavy
rainfall to occur over the area. However, the grounds are dry
to very dry over south florida, and the western areas of south
florida is also in a severe to extreme drought conditions.

Therefore, there should be no flooding issued for south florida
from the heavy rainfall potential.

Extended forecast...

the through of low pressure will continue to move east into the
western atlantic waters this weekend. This will allow for high
pressure to build into south florida this weekend into early next
week, and allow for both sea breezes to develop and push inland.

Therefore, a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms are
possible each afternoon this weekend into early next week over the
interior areas of south florida with mostly dry conditions over
the metro areas.

Marine
The winds will be southerly today into tonight around 10 to 15
knots before swinging to a southwest direction for Wednesday into
Wednesday night. The speeds will also increase to around 20 knots
for Wednesday and Wednesday night. The winds will then remain
southwesterly on Thursday, as the speeds decrease through the day.

The seas should remain below 6 feet through Thursday for the
atlantic and gulf waters, but could build to 7 feet late
Wednesday night in the offshore gulf waters, due to the increased
wind speeds.

Aviation
The winds will be southerly today around 10 knots this morning
before increasing to around 15 knots this afternoon with gusts up
to 25 knots. The weather should remain dry over most of the taf
sites today, except for kpbi, kfxe, and kfll TAF sites where a few
showers could affect the TAF sites this afternoon. The ceiling and
vis should remain in theVFR conditions today.

Beach forecast
The threat of rip currents will be low today over both beaches of
south florida. The threat of rip currents will continue to be low
for the east coast beaches through end of the week, but the gulf
coast beaches could increase on Wednesday and Thursday due to the
southwest breezy conditions.

Fire weather
The relative humidity will remain well above the critical values
over south florida for rest of the week, due to the deep moisture
working into the area from the south. However, the dispersion
index will be getting above 75 for Wednesday and Thursday due to
the increase wind speeds over south florida.

Climate
The east coast metro areas could see near record highs for
Wednesday, due to the breezy southwest wind flow. Here are the
record highs and forecast highs for the east coast areas for
Wednesday.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
