Line of showers over the atlantic will continue to push away from
the coast this morning. However, an isolated shower may impact
the east coast TAF sites through mid-morning.VFR is expected to
prevail but brief sub-vfr CIGS are possible with any showers that
make their way over the terminal. Prevailing n-ne winds will allow
for a drying trend and clearing skies through the period.

mfl's 21 00z sounding shows a much drier atmosphere relative to
the past few days across the region. Here are the pw values from
the past 48 hours -
19 00z sounding : 1.61 inches - above 90th percentile
19 12z sounding : 1.81 inches - above 90th percentile and tied the MAX moving average
20 00z sounding : 1.63 inches - above 90th percentile
20 12z sounding : 1.33 inches - above 75th percentile
21 00z sounding : 1.15 inches - just above average
within the past 36 hours (from 19 12z to 21 00z), a 0.66 inch
difference in pw values can be seen. Model derived pw values are
forecast to drop even more, especially as the next cold front
passes. This means that the widespread rain showers plaguing the
region for the past two days should finally come to an end by
later tonight.

For today, a cold front will trek across the region before passing
offshore later this afternoon. The higher pops look to stay across the
east coast metro and atlantic waters before clearing up over land by
the late afternoon to early evening hours. Isolated rain showers are
still possible across the atlantic until early Friday morning. High
pressure will swiftly move in across the region into Friday,
keeping conditions drier and cooler for the remainder of the
week.

The coolest nights are forecast for tonight into Friday morning and
Friday night into Saturday morning. Lows for tonight will be in
the low to mid 50s over most of south florida except for the
southeastern areas where it will be in the mid to upper 50s and
west of lake okeechobee where it will be in the upper 40s. In
concerns to wind chills, apparent temps will be in the mid to
upper 40s across the lake region, upper 40s to low 50s across the
central interior and palm beach county, and low to mid 50s across
both coasts. Lows for Friday night will range from the upper 40s
to lower 50s over the interior and west coast metro areas to lower
to mid 50s over the east coast metro areas, except mid to upper
40s west of lake okeechobee. Wind chills Friday night look to be
in the low to mid 40s across the lake region, mid to upper 40s
across the central interior, upper 40s to lower 50s across palm
beach county and the west coast, to low to mid 50s across the east
coast.

Over the course of the weekend, the aforementioned high pressure
will slowly slide eastward into the western atlantic allowing for
a more easterly wind flow regime. Both GFS and ECMWF have a weak
shortwave trough venturing across south florida Sunday morning,
but a dry air mass, stable model derived lapse rates, and
essentially negligible low-level convergence will work together
to keep conditions mostly dry.

Early next week, low pressure should develop over the tn river valley
and eventually eject off the carolina coast. This will allow for
a cold front associated with the low to move southeast into
northern florida and potentially into south florida. This in turn
will allow for more of a southwest wind flow over south florida
bringing back some low level moisture leading to a slight chance
of showers mainly across the east coast metro areas.

Marine...

ne winds of 10-15 kt will slowly back from the N today before
backing from the NW overnight as a cold front passes through the
region. Consequently, winds over all atlantic waters will pick up
to 20-25 kt overnight tonight and winds over the gulf will pick
up to 15-20 kt. These breezy winds look to stay around until late
Friday morning, though cautionary winds will continue across the
atlantic until Friday afternoon. The winds will then swing to an
easterly direction this weekend while decreasing to less than 10
knots. Breezy conditions look to return Sunday.

The northern atlantic waters will remain in the 5 to 7 ft range,
with occasional 8 ft seas, today into Friday morning before
slowly decreasing to 4 to 6 ft by Friday evening into Saturday
morning. The atlantic waters will then decrease to 4 feet or less
this weekend. The gulf waters of south florida will remain at 3
feet or less late this week into this weekend.

Therefore, the current SCA in effect for the northern atlantic
waters has been extended through 10 am Friday morning and a new sca
has been issued for all atlantic waters from midnight tonight
through 10 am Friday morning. Scec will prevail for the gulf
waters this evening into Friday morning.

The tide levels along the atlantic beaches are running about 1 ft
over the predicted astronomical tides. Naples is running about
half a foot over the predicted astronomical tides due to the
super full moon. These tide levels will lead to some minor ponding
along the typical vulnerable areas along the east coastlines and
portions of the west coastlines during high tides through tonight.

focus for convection should remain over the atlantic waters within
the vicinity of some east coast terminals. Convection should begin
to trend down by mid-morning withVFR generally expected through
the period. Some brief bouts of sub-vfr possible with convection.

Drying trend expected today with cloud cover diminishing clearing
by the end of the period.

Beach forecast...

a moderate risk for rip currents will prevail across all atlantic
beaches today due to a NE swell with an increasing threat along
the gulf beaches as winds back from a more N NW direction. Over
the weekend, the threat of rip currents will be increasing along
the atlantic beaches and decreasing along the gulf beaches as the
winds shift from the E again.

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.
