Marine Weather and Tides
Bonita Springs, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Update
Surface ridge axis has begun to shift south with a southwest to
west flow setting up from about tampa bay northward early this
morning. The rather tight moisture gradient remains across the
region with deep moisture over the northeast gulf interacting with
the land breeze from overnight which has led to scattered showers
and thunderstorms along the nature coast. This convection will
continue to develop propagate south and east through the day as
the west coast sea breeze moves inland and the moisture slowly
increases. Have tweaked early morning grids to adjust rain
chances, otherwise remainder of forecast looks ok at this time.

Aviation
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop and
move propagate south and east causing MVFR local ifr conditions at
the TAF sites today. This convection will first affect the tampa
bay TAF sites from around mid-morning into early afternoon, then
the rest of the TAF sites this afternoon and early evening. Mainly
vfr conditions are expected outside of the convection into early
tonight. Late tonight after 09z some more MVFR ceilings will be
possible at tpa, pie, and srq as the southwest to west flow brings
moisture in from the gulf.

Marine
The ridge of high pressure across the area will sink south today
and hold across the florida straits for the next few days setting
up southwest to west flow into the weekend. Daily thunderstorms
will cause locally hazardous boating conditions each day,
otherwise tranquil marine conditions will continue.

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.
