discussion...

today through Saturday...

a gradual warming trend is expected to continue through Saturday
with winds veering around to the southeast as surface high
pressure over the SE CONUS slides off to the east. Low
temperatures will start out in the low to mid 40s across inland
sw florida to the upper 50s across the east coast metro area
this morning before warming into the 70s this afternoon. By
Saturday, high temperatures will climb into the upper 70s to low
80s across the area with Saturday night lows in the 60s.

Sunday through Wednesday...

a cold front will push through the region on Sunday morning,
bringing the next good chance for showers and thunderstorms and
ushering in another shot of cool air. Both the GFS and ECMWF are
in fairly good agreement with the arrival of the front, with the
ecmwf only about 6 hours behind the gfs. Both models have been
trending earlier than previous runs, and therefore temperatures
for Sunday and especially Sunday night have been lowered a touch
to reflect that trend. Low temperatures on Sunday night are now
forecast in the low 40s across inland SW florida to the low 50s
along the immediate east coast. Monday will be the coolest day
with highs in the low 60s near lake okeechobee to near 70 across
the southern tip of the peninsula. A gradual warming trend will
once again set in through around midweek when the next cold front
approaches the area. Model timing differences are much more
noticeable (> a day) for the arrival of the second front, so we'll
just have to keep tabs on it until it gets closer in time.

Marine...

generally light NE winds will gradually become SE over the next
couple of days before becoming S and strengthening on Saturday
ahead of the next cold front. Slightly elevated seas will be
possible in the gulf stream today. Otherwise, low seas are
expected until Saturday night into Sunday as the front pushes
through the area. Breezy NW winds are expected in the wake of the
front on Sunday.

Beach forecast...

a high risk of rip currents is forecast for palm beach and broward
county beaches today due to lingering swell. A moderate risk of
rip currents is forecast for miami-dade county.

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.
