AMZ500 Synopsis For Flagler Beach To Jupiter Inlet Out To 60 Nm- 1000 Pm Est Fri Feb 23 2018
Synopsis..A strong high pressure ridge centered over the western atlantic will generate a gentle to moderate onshore breeze over the local waters into the weekend. This persistent flow will produce a moderate easterly swell that will enhance the local sea heights. Small craft operators will need to exercise caution offshore.
Gulf stream hazards..Southeast winds up to 15 knots with seas up to 6 feet. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Thursday february 22nd 39 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 29 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 23 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 15 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 9 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Update
Strong atlantic dlm ridge remains in firm control of local weather
pattern, producing temperatures more typical of late spring rather
than late winter as a mild to warm E to ese flow pattern persists
overnight. Modest low level moisture trapped beneath a mountain of
warm dry mid level air pressing down in the subsidence cap in the
h85-h75 layer, will produce a small threat for coastal showers,
especially over martin county near a persistent "streamer" coming
off of grand bahamas island. Nudged pops there up by 10 percent.

Otherwise, minor tweaks to forecast clouds temps. Any mist or fog
over the far interior should be shallow, as a better chance will
remain over the climo-preferred areas to our north and west.

Aviation Vfr. Small tempo group for shallow MVFR mist (mifg br)
over the north and interior aerodromes (dab lee ism sfb mco) from
around 09z through 13z. Will probably need and amd here shortly to
throw in vcsh and some MVFR CIGS at ksua given approaching showers.

Marine No changes. Long fetch E to SE flow up to 15kt around the
back side of the atlantic ridge producing an unusually long period
(16-17sec) swell train, which is greatly enhancing the rip current
threat at area beaches. It is also helping to contribute to combined
seas of 3-4ft near shore and 5-6ft well offshore. Based on latest
readings at 41009, some 6ft seas likely remain out there well beyond
20nm, especially south of CAPE canaveral, therefore will keep the
cautionary statement up overnight.

Elevated rip current risk through the weekend...

Saturday... Low level winds from the southeast around the high
pressure ridge offshore will bring some enhanced low to mid level
moisture nnw across east central florida from the morning across the
south to NRN sections by afternoon. Pwats are forecast to increase
to around 1.3 inches which should be sufficient for isolated showers
to develop with daytime heating. Highs will be similar to Friday in
the lower 80s along the coast to the mid 80s for the interior.

Sat night-sun night... Surface high pressure over the western atlc
with associated ridge axis across the central peninsula. Generally a
se S flow with a bit of veering to the SW overnight sun. Upper ridge
across the area remains rather flat as energy to the north
traversing the eastern CONUS keeps it from amplifying. With that
said, the ridge remains strong enough to keep fronts north of ecfl,
though there will be a quasi-stationary boundary across the deep
south gulf coast. Precipitation chances continue around 20pct or
less with any shower activity on the light side. Temperatures remain
above climo.

Previous... Next week... A slow moving frontal boundary looks to sink
into N fl on Monday. Continued migration of flow pattern to zonal
aloft will occur early in the week with limited effects on local
area ascd with weakening front north of the immediate area. Moisture
looks marginal at best to produce notable rain chcs and no more than
isold chcs are anticipated with the setup with lack of forcing
mechanism. Temps wl remain at to above normal to close out the
month. Broad ridging is shown trying to re-establish over the state
from mid to late week with continued rather dry and warm conditions
to begin the month of march.

Aviation
MainlyVFR thru early evening with isold -shra north of kmco. Light
winds after midnight may allow for patchy fog development for inland
terminals and kdab, with ifr vsbys likely for klee. Expect fog to
linger shortly after sunrise.

Marine
Tonight... Se winds will continue to around 10 knots across the
volusia near shore waters and up to 15 knots across the SRN offshore
waters. Combined seas will average 3-5 ft nearshore and 5-6 ft
offshore with the wave guidance having some difficulty picking up on
the moderate ene long period swells with periods of 15-17 seconds
this afternoon. Will continue scec headlines offshore.

Saturday... Winds will continue SE at 10-15 knots into Saturday with a
continuing ene swell train allowing for combined seas to 3-4 ft
nearshore and up to 5 ft offshore.

Sat night-sun night... Surface ridge axis across the area with SE s
winds veering a bit more ssw Sun overnight. Speeds generally 8-14
kts over the open atlc. Shower chances remain slight. Seas generally
3-4 ft near shore and 4-5 ft offshore.

Previous... Next week... Weakness created by surface boundary over n
fl will bring lighter winds to the local marine area early in the
week with veering to S to SW component on Monday. A modest wind
shift to n-ne on Tue will veer direct onshore into midweek.

Headlines are not anticipated at least the first half of the week.

Climate Melbourne should break their record warm low again
today, february 23rd, with a few additional coastal sites having a
chance for record warm lows on Saturday, february 24th.

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.
