Vfr expected with generally northwesterly flow. Some east coast
sites could see winds become north-northeasterly in the afternoon.

Wind will become light on Friday night.

Prev discussion issued 744 pm edt Thu mar 21 2019
update...

the previous forecast appears to be on track. Showers continue to
diminish over the southeastern atlantic waters this evening with
a quiet night in store.

Prev discussion... Issued 336 pm edt Thu mar 21 2019
discussion...

a much drier weather pattern than we've had the last several days
is in store for the upcoming week. The cold front has pushed
through the area, with high pressure and much drier air filtering
in behind it. This morning's sounding only had 0.97 inches of
precipitable water, which is just below average and a stark
contrast to the 1.81 inches we had just two days ago. Even drier
conditions will be possible until winds become easterly again on
Saturday as the surface high pressure pushes eastward. Easterly
flow remains in place with moisture gradually returning to the
area through around Tuesday, when a cold front could push through
the area. If the front makes it through south florida, only a few
showers are expected along with it at this time.

Friday and Friday night will actually be the coolest of the week
as dry and cool air continue to filter southward across the area
today. Highs tomorrow are forecast in the 70s across the whole
area with low temperatures Friday night forecast in the mid to
upper 40s across the lake region to the mid to upper 50s along the
east coast metro areas. A gradual warming trend will then set in
through the forecast period, with a slight setback due to the
weak cold front on Tuesday.

Marine...

generally N to NW winds will continue for the next day or so
before becoming E on Saturday and increasing on Sunday as surface
high pressure slides off to the east. Elevated winds and seas will
continue over the atlantic waters tonight before subsiding on
Friday. A small craft advisory will be in effect for all atlantic
waters tonight.

A coastal flood statement is in effect for coastal collier county
through Friday and the east coast through Friday night for tide
levels around 1 foot above normal during high tides. This is
largely due to the combination the super moon and spring equinox.

Impacts should be fairly minimal but could include minor ponding
of water on streets, parking lots, piers, and docks in the most
vulnerable locations along the coast and intracoastal waterways.

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.
