Update
A streamer of showers have developed this evening over the
atlantic waters of palm beach county extending into the southern
palm beach county, as there is a convergence of northeast to east winds
over this area. These showers should slowly dissipate through
rest of the evening hours, as the winds become more easterly over
this area after midnight. Therefore, a slight chance of showers
have been added to the palm beach atlantic waters and the southern
metro areas of palm beach county for this evening.

Rest of the forecast looks good at this time and no other chances
are planned.

High risk of rip currents east coast beaches through Friday evening
Mostly dry conditions through the weekend
Discussion...

high pressure will slowly drift southward from central florida
into south florida through early this weekend, as a cold front
drifts southward from north florida into central florida.

The front will then slowly wash out over the south central
florida late this weekend as the high remains over south florida.

This weather pattern will keep an easterly wind flow ongoing over
south florida through the weekend along with mostly dry weather
conditions across the region. There could be a few showers over
the east coast metro areas through the weekend, but the coverage
will be few and far between to mention in the eastern zones.

Extended forecast...

another high pressure will build into the southeastern united
states early to middle next week. This will allow for the wind
flow to become more northeasterly and increase to breezy
conditions leading to more coverage in showers over the eastern
areas of south florida. Therefore, isolated pops will be added to
the eastern areas of south florida for early next week with
scattered conditions over the atlantic waters. Rest of south
florida should remain mostly dry early next week.

Marine...

the winds will easterly through the weekend with speeds decreasing
from breezy conditions tonight to less than 10 knots this weekend.

There will also be a northeast swell of 2 to 4 feet working into
the atlantic waters Friday night to Saturday. This will allow for
the atlantic seas to build from around 2 to 4 feet tonight to 3 to
5 feet Friday night into Saturday, before slowly falling back to 2
to 4 feet on Sunday as the northeast swells decrease. The gulf
seas will remain at 2 feet or less through the weekend.

The winds will then swing to a northeast direction and increase to
breezy to windy conditions early next week. This should allow for
the atlantic seas to build to advisory levels early next week,
and up to 5 feet in the gulf waters.

Beach forecast...

the high risk of rip currents will be extended through Friday
evening for the east coast beaches of south florida, due to the
resistant on the breezy easterly wind flow and the low tides
during the day hours.

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.
