An area of low pressure will approach the area for the end of the week and move by to the north for the first half of the weekend, with increasing rain chances across the area. Winds will likely be around 15 knots periodically, but no headlines are expected until possibly Saturday, with exercise caution-level winds possible ahead of a front.

Update
Patchy dense fog developed over our southern interior
counties this morning reducing visibilities to near zero
miles. The dense fog is not very widespread and mainly
confined to areas that are normally prone to fog. A special
weather statement is in effect through 9 am for portions of
highlands, desoto, charlotte, and lee counties. Fog should
gradually dissipate over the next hour or two as heating
commences.

The combination of a weak cool front and upper-level energy
will bring lots of clouds and some scattered showers to the
region today. The best rain chances will be from the tampa
bay area northward this morning, then shifting south and
east during the afternoon as the front continues southward.

No significant impacts expected.

Aviation
Lifr to ifr conditions will end at pgd between 13 and 14z.

Vfr conditions are expected everywhere after 14z. A few
showers could bring brief MVFR conditions to TAF sites
today, but overall coverage too low to include at this time.

Marine
North to northwest winds will gradually increase from north
to south today as a weak cold front moves through the
waters. We may see a few hours of winds near 15 knots
resulting in some chop on the waters, but expect winds to
begin to shift more northeasterly overnight at slightly
lower speeds.

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.
