discussion...

as the tropical wave continues to lift off to the north and
west, a nice pocket of dry mid level air will move over the
southern half of the area today and limit rain chances
across the area. Current forecast is on track with highs
expected in the upper 80s to lower 90s. No updates planned.

Aviation...

light east winds this morning with a later afternoon sea
breeze expected at coastal locations. Winds then turning
back to the E NE in the late evening and overnight. Lower
than average rain chances for today, so no vcty mention, and
sct-bkn cloud coverage this afternoon.

Marine...

winds and seas are slightly elevated through tonight though
no headlines are expected with it as the area is between the
weak tropical wave moving off to the NW and high pressure
from the atlantic. Current forecast is on track with this
and have no major changes for the update.

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.
