Update
No significant changes to current forecast. Sfc obs this evening
show drier air filtering down from north fl with dewpoints falling
into the mid 30s at lee. But the slight onshore wind component
(n ne) will keep marine modified airmass in place elsewhere esp
along the coast. Beginning to see light rain develop across the
area with heavier steadier rain expected across southern sections
(treasure coast) overnight where isentropic lift will be strongest.

Min temps will be near seasonal across the north in the mid to upper
50s but remain milder along the treasure coast in the low to mid
60s. Temps in brevard could get a few degrees cooler than forecast
if the boundary layer winds can lose the slight onshore wind
component and become more N nw.

Tonight-Tuesday (modified)... Overcast skies as an h85-h50 vort max
over the central gomex works its way east under the influence of
strong deep W SW flow abv h85... Riding along a stationary front
stalled over the fl straits NRN bahamas. Meanwhile, the south half
of the fl peninsula remains under the influence of the ascending
right rear quad of 100-120kt jet streak with an area of strong h30-
h20 divergence upstream.

Cloudy wet cool weather pattern to continue with a sharp precip
gradient dvlpg acrs central fl. Interaction between ridging over the
deep south mid atlc and the frontal trof to the south will tighten
the low mid lvl pres grad acrs central fl, resulting in a brisk ne
flow thru the h100-h85 lyr. Breezy conds expected along the coast.

Moisture will expand north as the gomex disturbance approaches...

mainly aft midnight. Pops rise significantly south of orlando cape
canaveral, particularly over the treasure coast lake-o region where
will be 80-100pct thru tue... Tapering to 20pct north of i-4 tonight
and 40pct on tue. N NE flow blow h70 backing to W SW abv h70 is
characteristic of a classic isentropic stratiform rain event, though
heaviest precip not anticipated until aft daybreak tue. MAX temps
will be pretty uniform in the mid to upper 60s.

Aviation
PrevailingVFR CIGS with MVFR CIGS developing over southern
terminals (vrb-sua) overnight into Tue with widespread ra.

Will keep mcoVFR but just barely with CIGS lowering to around
035agl then lowering to 025-030agl around 00z. North winds 5-10
knots interior but remaining 15 knots and gusty along the coast
tonight. Breezy NE winds 15-20 knots and gusty along the coast tue
spreading inland during the day.

Marine
A stationary front is located over the fl straits and northern
bahamas with a moderate N NE flow over the local atlc waters. N ne
winds hovering around 20 knots at NOAA buoy 009 with seas of 5 ft.

Seas likely 6-7 ft in the gulf stream and these will build to 8 ft
by morning ESP south of the cape. A small craft advisory continues
for all the waters.

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.
