Discussion
The upper ridge and reflective surface high pressure continue to
extend westward over southern florida and into the gulf of mexico.

This will keep a southwest flow over the region through early
Friday. At that time, the upper ridge and surface high begins to
lift north with a surface high center parking over the eastern gulf
of mexico by Saturday morning. This will allow for decreasing winds
on Friday and into the weekend. Drier air moves in with high
pressure allowing for pw values to drop from 1.71 inches that we saw
on this mornings sounding down to around 1.2 - 1.5 inches through
the weekend. Minimal rain chances can be expected starting today and
continuing through Sunday. With decreasing clouds and rain chances,
temperatures will be on the rise with daytime highs reaching the low
to mid 90s each day with some upper 90s possible over the interior.

The ridge slips north of the area by Monday and Tuesday allowing for
an increase in moisture with pw values creeping back up to 1.5 - 2.0
inches. With increasing moisture, rain storm chances will be on the
rise as well with daily sea breezes. With the east coast sea breeze
being dominant, the highest coverage of rain will be over the east
coast and interior counties during the afternoon hours beginning
Monday and continuing through next week.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected through the period with no chance of any
significant weather at any of the terminals. Winds will remain out
of the southwest between 6-12 knots through the day, then decreasing
to 4-8 knots overnight. No other aviation impacts expected.

Marine
High pressure ridging south of florida will keep a southwest wind
flow around 10-15 knots over the coastal waters through the end of
the week. High pressure settles in over the eastern gulf by late
Friday with decreasing winds and seas as well as minimal rain storm
chances for the weekend through the middle of next week. No other
marine impacts expected.

Fire weather
High pressure south of florida ridges west producing a southwest
wind flow and minimal rain chances across the florida peninsula for
the next few days. No fire weather hazards expected for the next
several days as relative humidity values remain above critical
levels.

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.
