high pressure, centered to the north, is forecast to maintain
quiet weather conditions through the beginning of the week, under
an easterly flow. The high then is progged to slide to the
southeast, setting up almost directly over south florida. This
should turn the wind more southeasterly to south for the middle
and latter half of the week. There is also a 500mb ridge centered
just to the south of the florida peninsula. This will allow for
warmer temperatures across the CWA for the entire forecast period.

It also keeps the forecast dry through the end of the week.

Marine...

an easterly flow will continue over the coastal waters generally at
10 to 15 kts through the middle of the week, some some periods of
weaker wind. The high will build over the region for the middle of
the week, turning the wind to the southeast Wednesday, and then
more southerly for the latter half of the week. Seas are forecast
to be 3 feet or less.

The wind of 10 to 15 kts should keep a moderate, risk of rip
currents in the forecast through the beginning of the week for
the atlantic beaches.

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.
