Marine Weather and Tides
North Palm Beach, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

GenerallyVFR with a shift to westerly to southwesterly flow
today. Morning and early afternoon convection around the west
coast spreading inland as the sea breezes advance. Activity will
focus along the east coast terminals today. Sub-vfr conditions
will be possible with convection and short-fused amendments will
likely be necessary. Convection should diminish in the evening
over land and remain mainly offshore overnight.

a mid to upper level ridge of high pressure will remain in place
just to the north of the region on Thursday and it will be
weakening as well. This will allow for the wind flow to become
more west to southwesterly and moisture will be on the increase
as well. Both of the east and west coast sea breezes will develop
by the middle of the morning and progress inland. The chances of
showers and thunderstorms will be higher then what they have been
over the past couple of days as there will be more moisture to
work with. The greatest coverage of showers and thunderstorms will
be over interior areas during the afternoon hours where the sea
breezes collide. The showers and thunderstorms should then migrate
towards the east coast later in the afternoon and early evening
due to the westerly flow. Temperatures will continue to be quite
warm with highs in the low 90s, maybe even the mid 90s for some
spots, and heat index values over 100 for many areas.

As the end of the work week and the weekend approaches, a weak mid
to upper level ridge will remain in place over south florida. West
to southwesterly flow is expected to continue during this time
frame and scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop each
afternoon along the east and west coast sea breezes. Once again,
the greatest coverage of storms will be located over the interior
sections during the afternoon hours. The latest GFS and the ecmwf
continue to show another ridge of high pressure building into the
region from the western atlantic early next week. This will help
to shift the low level winds to the east southeast. Low level
moisture will continue to increase during this time frame as well
which will enhance the chances of showers and thunderstorms.

Temperatures will continue to remain on the warm side Friday and
Saturday, with some mid 90s possible into parts of the southeast
florida metro area and near 90 to lower 90s elsewhere. Heat index
values may approach or even exceed 105f over parts of the area
Friday and Saturday.

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.
