GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 348 Pm Edt Mon Mar 25 2019
Synopsis..High pressure will remain across the waters through tonight with winds light west to northwest winds and slight seas. A cold front will move south through the waters during Tuesday and Tuesday night shifting winds to northwest to north with speeds increasing to exercise caution, possibly small craft advisory criteria. Breezy northeasterly winds will persist for Wednesday and Thursday as the pressure gradient tightens between developing surface low pressure off the florida east coast and strong surface high pressure along the eastern seaboard. Lighter northeast to east winds and lower seas should return to the waters on Friday as the surface high weakens and shifts east into the atlantic ocean.

Update
Another warm day across the region today with high pressure in place
ahead of an approaching cold front. There is a better chance tonight
for patchy fog in some spots around the area, but this is covered in
the forecast. No update needed tonight.

Aviation
MainlyVFR conditions are expected through the forecast period. There
has been some indication that there could be some lower clouds
overnight for the northern terminals, but confidence remains low and
will leave out of this TAF issuance. Light and variable winds become
northwest for Tuesday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
