Discussion
A cooler and drier air mass has moved into south florida behind a
cold front that passed through the area last night. As the sun
sets this evening and the heating of the day stops, low
temperatures will fall into the lower 40s across the northwestern
interior sections to the lower 50s across the east coast metro
areas. More in the way of sunshine is expected across south
florida on Tuesday. A reinforcing cold front will move through
during the day, however, it will have no moisture to work with so
it will move through the region dry. This will also keep the high
temperatures across south florida on the cool side as they will
struggle to rebound and they will remain in the 60s throughout
the area. Another cold night is expected on Tuesday night as low
temperatures will drop into the upper 30s across the northwestern
interior sections to the 50s across the east coast metro areas.

Wind chill values could drop into the mid to upper 30s across
portions of glades and hendry counties on Tuesday night.

By Wednesday an area of high pressure will begin to build back
into the region which will allow for a zonal flow returning aloft.

As this area of high pressure slides eastward into the atlantic,
it will bring a return of easterly flow to south florida. This
return of easterly flow will allow for an increase in lower level
moisture as well as moderating temperatures through the end of the
week. By the end of the week the next frontal boundary should be
moving through the southeastern portion of the country and towards
south florida. Both of the GFS and the ECMWF continue to show good
agreement on timing and position with the parent low over the
south central portion of the country on Friday, but they still
differ in timing and location after that. The GFS continues to
show a faster frontal passage through south florida then the
ecmwf. This gap in timing leads to low forecast confidence beyond
Friday and could create some variability in the weekend forecast
as the week continues. The strong to severe storm potential with
this next low pressure system late in the period is too far in
time to discern right now, but the forecast evolution should be
monitored through the week in case a threat emerges.

Marine
Persistent northwesterly winds will continue tonight and through
tomorrow and they will increase in speed as well. A small craft
advisory will go into effect later tonight and will last through
the day on Tuesday for the atlantic waters due to increasing wind
speeds and building seas. Winds and seas will slowly start to
improve across the atlantic waters towards the middle portion of
the week.

Aviation
The winds will remain west northwest through tonight as the speeds
will be 10 to 15 knots this afternoon decreasing to 5 to 10 knots
tonight. The ceiling and vis will remain inVFR conditions along
with dry weather at all of the TAF sites.

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.
