Short term (today - Monday)
Upper low spinning in SE gulf this morning to move further
into the central gulf through Sunday. Deep tropical moisture
advecting over the area pulled into the gulf low today then
dry pocket in mid-upper levels to move over the area Monday.

Weak tropical wave at the surface along the SE fl coast this
morning to move over the fl peninsula today during max
heating to collide with gulf seabreeze for numerous
thunderstorms in SW fl building into the suncoast late this
afternoon with mainly scattered convection from the bay
area into the nature coast with around normal warm and humid
conditions. Monday, expect hot temps with muggy humidly and
mainly isolated late afternoon storms as temps soar into
the mid+ 90s and heat index 105-108.

Mid term long term (Monday night-Saturday)
Some mid upper level ridging will be across the region into midweek
then global models bring a wave westward into florida which gets
picked up by a trough moving across the eastern u.S. Late in the
week. This pattern will bring an area of drier air across the region
Monday night and early Tuesday followed by an increase in deep
moisture for the rest of the week. Therefore, other than some low
rain chances, less than 30 percent, north of about the interstate 4
corridor Tuesday, the rain chances look to be pretty high through
much of the period with 40 percent north to 70 percent south
Wednesday, then 60 to 70 percent everywhere for Thursday through
Saturday. Convection will occur mainly during the afternoon and
evening hours, but as we head toward the end of the week a more
south to southwest flow will setup so morning convection will become
possible near the coast.

Daytime high temperatures will remain near normal to slightly above
normal through Wednesday, then near to slightly below normal for the
rest of the week thanks to more clouds and higher rain chances.

Overnight lows will remain near to slightly above normal through the
period.

Aviation
Increased moisture today will bring better chances of
afternoon thunderstorms will keep vcts in all sites from
16z-18z through 00z-02z expect brief MVFR LCL ifr conditions
in stronger storms.

Marine
Weak high pressure in place and a weak tropical wave will
move over the E gulf today with scattered to numerous
afternoon thunderstorms possible. High pressure then remains
north of the waters through midweek as a couple of troughs
move across fl and out over the gulf. The ridge begins to
settles south toward the end of the week. Winds to remain
mainly light and slight seas except in or near
thunderstorms.

Fire weather
Warm and humid summertime conditions continue with daily rain
chances through early next week.

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.
