Discussion
Persistent upper ridging and broad surface high pressure remains in
control over florida for the next several days with no rain in
sight. No real change can be seen in the next week until next
Saturday when the ridge flattens out and shifts slightly to the
south. As we have seen the past several days, temperatures will
quickly heat up with highs expected in the low to mid 90's each day
and only slightly cooler near the coast where a minimal sea breeze
will push in.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected through the period. Winds remain less
than 10 knots with no other aviation impacts expected.

Marine
High pressure to the north will keep a predominant easterly wind
flow in place through the next several days. We will continue to see
easterly surge for the next couple of nights, but Saturday night
should be the last night that speeds reach exercise caution levels,
then winds lighten up some for Sunday and into next week. No other
marine impacts expected.

Fire weather
Hot and dry conditions along with high dispersions can be expected
for the next several days. Minimum relative humidity values will
bottom out between 35 and 45 percent each afternoon with no red flag
conditions anticipated. No significant fog is expected.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
