Short term (today-Monday)
A strong u l ridge over the gulf of mexico will build over the
florida peninsula today and tonight, and will slide just east of
florida on Monday. Strong large scale subsidence will persist over
west central and southwest florida through Monday.

Otherwise zonal u l flow will extend across the southern tier of the
u.S. Remaining just north of the forecast area with a strong cut-off
low over the northern great lakes rotating over southeast canada on
Monday. An associated frontal boundary will sink slowly south today
and stall over the southeast u.S. On Monday as it becomes parallel
to the upper level flow.

At the surface, a large area of high pressure over the central
atlantic will extend over the florida peninsula with the ridge axis
south of the forecast area. This will create onshore boundary layer
flow with the west coast sea breeze pushing inland during the early
afternoon hours. This will cause daytime temperatures near the
coast to be significantly cooler than inland areas... With mid to
upper 80s at the coast, and mid 90s inland each day.

Long term (Monday night-Saturday)
On Monday high pressure on the surface and aloft, that was keeping
the peninsula dry, shifts eastward over the atlantic as a band
of moisture associated with a broad upper trough and a weak cold
front approaches the florida panhandle. By Tuesday afternoon
some moisture returns to the state and is enough to squeeze
out some interior showers during the evening after a hot
afternoon in the mid 90s. By Wednesday afternoon sufficient
moisture has returned to have scattered thunderstorms around
the peninsula and this pattern continues into Saturday with
seasonal temperatures.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail for the next 24 hours under mostly clear
skies.

Marine
Winds will remain less than 15 knots with seas less than 4 feet
through the period. Main hazard will be an increasing chance of
late afternoon evening thunderstorms mid to late week. The stronger
storms will be capable of producing strong gusty winds, locally
rough seas, and frequent cloud to water lightning.

Fire weather
No fire weather hazards are expected. Minimum relative humidity
values will drop below 35 percent for a few hours over the interior
peninsula this afternoon, however winds and durations are expected
to remain below 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.
