Update
00z water vapor and h4 rap analysis show the florida
peninsula continues to reside under unseasonably strong
mid upper level ridging... Resulting in day after day of
near-record to record heat across the region.

The forecast through the weekend does not change much as
this ridge holds firm... And temperatures remain well above
normal. Will see the development of a sea-breeze each
afternoon that will make slow progress inland. A few
isolated and brief showers are not impossible along this
boundary by late afternoon early evening... But with the
degree of dry air aloft, any updrafts will be fighting a
mostly loosing battle above 10kft.

When the synoptic pattern does not change, usually the
forecast does not change a whole lot either, and this is
the case for the next few days. More of the same, and likely
more record highs.

Aviation (24 00z through 25 00z)
Vfr conditions will prevail at west-central and SW florida
taf sites through the evening and much of the overnight.

Coastal TAF sites have flipped to onshore winds with the
passage of the sea-breeze, but will see lighter winds come
back around to the east by later this evening. Patchy and
shallow fog may briefly drop visibility into MVFR categories
around dawn for klal kpgd krsw, but significant aviation
restrictions are not anticipated, and any early morning fog
will lift quickly.VFR conditions under a developing sct-bkn
cumulus field will then prevail for the daylight hours
Saturday. Just a slight chance of a late afternoon shower
along yet another inland propagating sea-breeze.

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.
