135 am edt Thu aug 17 2017

Aviation Se flow slightly stronger today, allowing east coast
seabreeze to get going 1-2 hours earlier than past few days. This
should also keep bulk of afternoon shra tsra well inland of east
coast sites. Gulf breeze gets going from wsw at kapf after 18z,
with tsra expected to be inland as well. Can't rule out one or two
in vcnty with early seabreeze development, or evening boundaries
pushing back towards coast, but threat to low to mention in any
taf site at this point.

Prev discussion... Issued 337 pm edt Wed aug 16 2017
discussion... Active weather with a fairly stagnant pattern for
south florida for the next several days at least. A bermuda high
is forecast to keep an easterly to southeasterly flow across the
region. With the flow on the weak side over the peninsula, the sea
breezes should be able to develop each day in the late morning to
early afternoon. This will act as a trigger for typical diurnal
showers and thunderstorms.

Over the weekend, an area of tropical moisture may arrive, helping
to increase the chances of showers and storms across the region,
particularly on Sunday. Southeast florida should still see most
of the activity be pushed off to the interior and along the gulf
coast. Beyond Sunday, models are indicating there could be a few
small waves of additional moisture, helping to keep an enhanced
chance of showers and storms into the middle of next week.

Marine... A weak east to southeast wind will keep seas running at
1 to 2 feet into the weekend. By Sunday, into the beginning of
next week, the wind is forecast to increase , allowing seas to
build to around 4 feet. Otherwise, typical showers and
thunderstorms continue to be in the forecast through the beginning
of next week.

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.
