Discussion
Widspread rain across central south florida today tonight...

current... Current wpc surface analysis shows a large high pressure
ridge domination the central and eastern CONUS early this morning.

The main frontal boundary remains stalled over the straits while a
second, weaker reinforcing cool front is draped across the florida
panhandle. Local 88d mosaic shows northern edge of the widespread
light rain currently lies from about kissimmee to titusville, with
sprinkles to the north current temps are in the upper 50s and lower
60s, under a steady cool north wind. Some rather low dew points
(l-m40s continue across northern lake volusia counties, rising to
55-60f from osceola and brevard counties southward.

Today-tonight... Mid level short wave trough over the central gomex
will slide east across florida today, preceded by its attendant
mid upper dynamic lift. Widespread rain wil continue, and increase
in intensity a bit as last vestiges of dry air in the lower levels
saturate. Global and mesoscale model focus for heavier rainfall
remains across the lake okeechobee treasure coast region, where the
consensus model QPF across those 4 counties (ir slc okee martin)
through 12z Wednesday is 1.5" - 2.5". Guidance consensus has also
increased pops rainfall totals over the central cwa, consequently
gridded numbers have been raised there as well. This will yield
categorical (80-100 pct) from saint cloud and titusville southward,
50-70 pct to the north. With areal average rainfall amounts ranging
from around 0.10" over the far north, to 0.25-0.50" around the i-4
corridor, and 0.50" to around 1.0" across osceola brevard counties.

Obviously, clouds will blunt the diurnal temp rise (l-m60s maxes for
most areas) and u60s may be a stretch for many locations. Rain will
rain will gradually erode diminish as the upper trough moves east of
the state, while multilayered clouds linger through sunrise. A cool
north breeze will accompany mins in the 50s and l60s.

Wednesday... A broad mid level trough will pull eastward and offshore
from the fl east coast in the morning with mid level flow becoming
westerly in the afternoon. At the surface, the pressure gradient
will remain tight enough for breezy conditions along the east coast
beaches and fairly deep moisture in the h9-h7 layer supporting
onshore moving showers. Pops will range from 30-50 percent along the
coast to 20-30 percent across the interior. Highs will reach the
lower to mid 70s, except cooler along the volusia county beaches.

Thursday... A reinforcing shot of dry north to northwest flow is
expected Thu as another shortwave trough moves toward the mid
atlantic. There will not be much moisture to work with as
northwesterly low level flow allows for drying in the 850-700 mb
layer, with very dry air in the mid and upper levels. Some cool air
advection will keep afternoon highs in the lower to mid 70s under
mostly sunny skies by afternoon.

Fri-sun... A deep longwave trough near the eastern seaboard Friday
will lift and transition offshore through the weekend. Surface high
pressure near the ms valley on Friday will drift east toward the oh
valley Sat and off the carolina coast Sunday. North to northwest low
level and a dry airmass will bring mostly clear conditions Friday
with highs again in the lower to mid 70s. Low level winds will veer
to onshore Sat and become southeast Sunday. Cool morning lows are
expected each morning with a dry airmass in place. Lows will range
from 45-50 across portions of the interior to the 50s along the
coast warming to the lower 60s coast by Sunday night.

Mon-tue... A short wave across the southeast states Monday wil help
deepen the longwave trough along the southeast atlantic coast into
Tuesday. Prefrontal moisture ahead of this feature will bring rain
chances in the 20-30 percent range Monday and 30-40 percent range
tue. Temps will remain warm in the warm sector in the upper 70s to
lower 80s both days with lows in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Aviation ism-mco-tix looks like the dividing line between
prevailing MVFR. Generally ovc015-030 3-5sm rabr to the south, and
bkn-ovc035-050 AOA 6sm --ra to the north. Some occasional ifr vsbys
and CIGS near 2sm rabr ovc008 could occur along the vrb-sua corridor.

Conditions gradually improving w-e from 06z onward.

Marine Today-tonight... No changes to winds sea forecast of winds
seas increasing a bit more to 20-25kt and 7-10ft peak well offshore
for this event. This will easily support the current SCA thru 12z.

Wed... Ne winds to 15-20 knots NRN waters to 15 knots across the srn
waters are expected. This will keep seas elevated and require
continuation of the small craft advisory into the evening hours.

Seas 5-6 ft near the coast to 6-8 ft offshore.

Thu... Nnw NW winds expected to 12-15 knots as a reinforcing frontal
trough moves through the waters. Seas will be slow to subside across
the offshore waters ranging from the 4-6 ft near shore to 6-7 ft
across of the offshore gulf stream waters.

Fri-sat... Cool air advection continues Friday with northwest winds
to 10-15 knots and poor boating conditions offshore. Winds will
gradually veer to onshore into Saturday and diminish to 10 knots or
less allowing for more favorable boating conditions for sat.

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.
