Synopsis..Southeast winds will shift to the south the rest of tonight ahead of an approaching cold front. Expect areas of showers and isolated Thunderstorms tonight into early Tuesday ahead of this boundary, with the greatest coverage expected from tampa bay northward. Winds will become north to northeast late Tuesday into Wednesday in the wake of the front, with speeds increasing to cautionary levels at times. Some areas of sea fog will be possible over the coastal waters through Tuesday and mariners should be ready for some reduced visibilities. Any lingering sea fog will get scoured out Tuesday afternoon and night as cooler and drier air moves into the region in the wake of the cold front.

Update
Increasing ascent associated with a short wave trough over
the east-central gulf this evening ahead of the cold front
which is now over the central florida panhandle is helping
to set off showers over the forecast area and adjacent gulf
waters early this evening. As this features continues to push
east expect to see an increase in coverage of showers across
the region the remainder of the evening. Cooler mid level
temperatures (-12c at 500mb via 00z RAOB data) will support
adequate low mid level instability which will support the
possibility of a few thunderstorms as well.

During the remainder of the night into Tuesday sufficient
moisture combined with frontogenetic forcing along and
ahead of the cold front should support additional showers
and isolated storms moving in from the gulf as the front
approaches and moves south through the region through the
period. Sufficient low level convergence coupled with
increasing divergence aloft may support some periods of
locally heavy downpours in some locations as well as the
above mentioned features affect the region. Cooler and drier
air in the wake of the front should bring an end to the
rain across the nature coast during Tuesday afternoon, with
the rain gradually ending across central and southern zones
during Tuesday evening as the front moves to the south and
eventually stalls out across the southern peninsula or
florida straits on Wednesday as high pressure builds in from
the north. As mentioned in earlier discussions there will
be the possibility of some sea fog development over the gulf
waters the remainder of tonight, however overall coverage
and direct impacts from it remains a bit uncertain at this
time, so for now will keep mention of it in the coastal
waters forecasts. Ongoing zone forecast is in good shape
with no evening update required at this time.

Aviation
Vfr this evening will deteriorate into the MVFR range with
brief ifr between 02-06z as showers and embedded tsra along
with lowering CIGS vsbys develop over the region ahead of a
cold front, with prevailing MVFR CIGS vsbys and isolated
ifr conditions continuing through the remainder of the taf
forecast period. Southeast to south winds in the 5 to 7 knot
range this evening will become south to southwest at 8 to
10 knots after 15z, then becoming west-northwest at 8 to 10
knots after 21z with the frontal passage. Higher winds gusts
will be possible in the vicinity of tsra.

Marine
South winds in the 10 to 15 knot range over the gulf waters
this evening will become south to southwest later tonight
into early Tuesday morning as the cold front approaches from
the west. Winds will shift into the northwest and north and
then northeast late Tuesday into Wednesday in the wake of
the front, with speeds increasing to cautionary levels at
times. As mentioned above the potential exists for some sea
fog the remainder of the night into Tuesday morning ahead of
the cold front as warm and moist air moves over the cooler
shelf waters, however its overall impacts remain uncertain
at this time, so all mariners should remain on the alert
for the possibility of lower visibilities and possible
advisory issuances later tonight through early Tuesday if
conditions warrant.

Drier and cooler air in the wake of the front should help
to scour out any lingering fog over the coastal waters by
Tuesday evening with improving conditions expected. Ongoing
forecast is on track and no changes are planned for the next
forecast issuance around 9 pm.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.

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.
