first and foremost, temperatures... Cooler temps are already across
the region early this morning with low 50s across the lake
region, mid 50s across the interior, and upper 50s to low 60s
across the west and east coasts. These temps will continue to drop
through early this morning, with lows forecast to drop in the
upper 40s to the west of lake okeechobee, low 50s across the
central interior, low to mid 50s across the west coast, and mid
50s across the east coast metro. Wind chill wise, apparent temps
will be in the mid to upper 40s across the lake region, upper 40s
to low 50s across the central interior and palm beach county, and
low to mid 50s across both coasts.

Lows for tonight into Saturday morning look to range from the upper
40s to lower 50s over the interior and west coast metro areas to
lower to mid 50s over the east coast metro areas, except mid to
upper 40s west of lake okeechobee. Wind chills tonight look to be in
the low to mid 40s across the lake region, mid to upper 40s across
the central interior, upper 40s to lower 50s across palm beach
county and the west coast, to low to mid 50s across the east coast.

For today through pretty much the end of the weekend, relatively
zonal flow aloft will prevail. At the surface, high pressure will
dominate the weather pattern, though it will gradually slide into
the western atlantic Saturday into Sunday. Additionally, the
atmosphere will remain very dry with pwats under 1 inch areawide
until around early Monday morning. Skies mostly clear to clear
with no rainfall or fog expected to close out the remainder of
the week.

For the beginning of next week into midweek, a longwave trough with
an associated cold front swings into the gulf Monday with expected
fropa Tuesday into Wednesday. Not too much expected temperature wise
with this front - perhaps a 5 degree drop in temps at most. With
winds back from the east, pops return to the region, especially at
times surrounding the impending front. Otherwise, mostly dry
conditions should prevail. After Wednesday, high pressure builds
back in.

Marine...

generally N to NW winds will continue today into early
Saturday morning. In the gulf, 15-25 kt winds will prevail through
this morning before waning down to 10-15 kt by late morning to early
afternoon. For the atlantic, 20-25 kt winds will prevail through mid
to late morning before diminishing to 10-20 kt by the afternoon.

The northern atlantic waters will remain in the 4 to 6 ft range
early this morning before slowly decreasing down into the 3 to 5
ft range by this afternoon evening. The atlantic waters will then
decrease to 4 feet or less this weekend. The gulf waters of south
florida will remain at 3 feet or less late this week into this
weekend.

Therefore, the current SCA in effect for all atlantic waters has
been extended through 11 am this morning. Likewise, the current sca
in effect for the outer gulf waters will remain in effect through 8
am this morning. Once the scas expire, scec will prevail for both
the gulf and atlantic waters throughout this afternoon.

On Saturday, winds will shift from a more NE E direction while
remaining under 12 kt across all waters. Saturday night into
Sunday, winds look to increase once again as surface high pressure
slides eastward.

A coastal flood statement is in effect for coastal collier county
and the east coast through late tonight for tide levels around
0.5 to 1 foot above normal during high tides. This is largely due
to the combination the super moon and spring equinox. Impacts
should be fairly minimal but could include minor ponding of water
on streets, parking lots, piers, and docks in the most vulnerable
locations along the coast and intracoastal waterways.

beach forecast...

a moderate risk for rip currents will prevail across all atlantic
beaches today due to a NE swell with an increasing threat along
the gulf beaches as winds back from a more N NW direction. Over
the weekend, the threat of rip currents will be increasing along
the atlantic beaches and decreasing along the gulf beaches as the
winds shift from the E again.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
