Discussion
Clouds are clearing out and the easterly evening wind surge
is starting to pick up. Winds should subside after midnight,
then increase again from the east in the later morning. No
sea breeze expected tomorrow as the easterly flow increases
enough to keep it from developing. Lows tonight on track to
fall into the mid 60s to mid 70s. No updates planned.

Aviation
Easterly flow andVFR conditions through the period, with
the winds subsiding after midnight, then increasing again
mainly after 15z.

Marine
Easterly evening wind surge is starting to pick up winds.

They will increase to around 15 knots over the coastal
waters tonight. Winds should weaken after around 6z, and
turn to the NE in the afternoon. Evening surges will
continue for the next few nights, with winds increasing to
scec levels for a few hours each night. No headline needed
tonight, but will be likely for periods through the weekend.

No major changes for the update.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
