Discussion
Calm winds and mostly clear skies from ridge across the eastern
u.S. Will again lead to favorable radiational cooling conditions
into tonight. Temperatures in the 50s and low 60s early this
evening will fall rapidly into the evening and overnight, with
chilly lows in the mid to upper 40s expected once again over much
of the area. While, hrrr local WRF and MOS guidance not showing
much in the way of fog formation late tonight, weather conditions
certainly would support it. Also, fog development was greater in
coverage than guidance indicated early this morning. Conditions
are a little drier than this morning and there will be some
potential for higher clouds moving in after midnight, mainly north
of orlando. However, feel there is at least a chance for patchy
fog across east central florida late tonight into early Wednesday
morning, so have included it in the forecast. This will again have
to be monitored closely overnight should fog become dense and
increase in coverage through daybreak.

Aviation MainlyVFR. Fog development remains the main forecast
challenge for the tafs over the next 24 hours. Light winds and
mostly clear skies tonight should again support tempo ifr MVFR
conditions in patchy ground fog, mainly between 9-13z. However,
some higher clouds may move into areas near to north of kmco after
midnight limiting fog potential over these sites. Therefore, for
now have limited tempo MVFR visibilities in tafs from ktix
southward.

Marine Light N NE flow over the waters will become E ne
overnight, with speeds around 5 knots or less. Seas will range
from 1-2 feet nearshore to 2-3 feet offshore.

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.
