823 pm edt Mon may 29 2017
A few showers and storms over south florida late this afternoon
have continued to develop north along outflow sea breeze
boundaries into our area early this evening. This convection
will wind down by midnight with mostly clear to partly cloudy
skies expected for the remainder of the night. Winds will become
light and could see patchy ground fog could form in the typical
fog prone areas toward morning, but nothing widespread expected.
For Tuesday the transition to a wetter pattern will continue as
deeper moisture spreads north into the area. This combined with
daytime heating and the sea breezes will lead to isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms during the afternoon with the
best chances over the interior and south counties. Have already
tweaked the grids and updated the zones to add isolated pops to
the interior and south for this evening, otherwise remainder of
forecast look ok at this time.
Majority of the convection should remain east of the southern
terminals this evening, but did add vcts for a few hours to fmy
and rsw. Could see some brief MVFR conditions at lal and pgd
toward morning, otherwise mainlyVFR conditions are expected
overnight into Tuesday morning. Some MVFR ceilings could develop
with daytime heating during mid to late Tuesday morning,|
especially at the southern terminals of pgd, fmy, and rsw. Then
after 18z some MVFR local ifr conditions in convection could
impact lal, pgd, fmy, and rsw, but have only gone with vcts at
The rather light winds will persist with a shift to onshore and
increase to around 10 knots near the coast Tuesday afternoon. A
more east to southeast flow with a shift to onshore with the sea
breeze each afternoon will setup during midweek, and convection
could begin to move offshore impacting the waters during the
evening and overnight hours.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
