Marine Weather and Tides
Englewood, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

248 pm edt Sun may 20 2018

Short term (tonight-Monday)
Numerous showers with a few embedded thunderstorms continue across
the state this afternoon. Extensive cloud cover and rain have held
temperatures in the lower to mid 70s all day, and really do not
expect this to change through the rest of the afternoon. The overall
synoptic pattern does not change much tonight into Monday, with
southerly flow aloft allowing deep tropical moisture to continue to
stream over the region. This will allow for showers and a few
thunderstorms at just about any time. Rain chances will lower a bit
for tonight as we lose the little daytime heating we have had, but
not expecting a dry overnight period. Temperatures tomorrow
afternoon will likely be held down again, similar to today.

Long term (Monday night-Sunday)
Monday night into Tuesday the mid upper level disturbance will
continue to drift north into the southeast u.S. Keeping deep
moisture across the region and therefore scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms in the forecast for Monday and Tuesday.

During Wednesday and Thursday it looks like a more typical summer-
like pattern will setup as high pressure builds west from the
atlantic ocean with an east to southeast flow across the area.

Plenty of moisture will still be around and this combined with
daytime heating and the sea breezes will lead to scattered mainly
afternoon and evening convection.

Late in the week models continue to indicate a weak area of low
pressure developing in the western caribbean sea yucatan peninsula.

There continues to be a wide range of scenarios with the GFS now
weaker and slower moving the system north northeast across south
florida Saturday night and then north to off the carolinas Sunday
while the ECMWF drifts the system north northwest into the central
gulf of mexico and then stalls it along the north central gulf coast
next weekend. Either way it looks like we'll see deep moisture
return with more scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms for
Friday and Saturday and slightly lower rain chances for Sunday.

Temperatures will generally run pretty close to normal through the
period.

Aviation
Mainly ifr or MVFR conditions persist at area terminals this
afternoon, with intermittentVFR. Numerous showers and a few
thunderstorms can be expected at just about any time through this
afternoon, with MVFR ifr CIGS and or vsbys continuing. Rain chances
will be lower for the overnight period, but will go back up for
Monday.

Marine
A southeast wind flow will remain in place for the next several days,
with no headlines expected. Showers and thunderstorms each day will
bring the possibility of briefly higher winds and waves.

Fire weather
Abundant low-level moisture and elevated rain chances through the
next couple of days will preclude any fire weather concerns through
the next several days. No significant fog is expected.

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.
