Update
Mid upper-level ridging remains over the state this morning with a
band of drier air clearly noted on water vapor imagery. This drier
air is lingering right over the central part of the peninsula and is
forecast to persist through much of the day. At the surface, the
subtropical ridge axis is stretched across the north-central
peninsula, with a light southeast low-level flow in place across the
forecast area. These winds will turn onshore in the afternoon as the
sea breeze circulation gets going, but the dry air will keep rain
chances low for most areas. The exception is over the southwest
florida region, where the air is not as dry. The overall forecast is
on track with just a few minor tweaks made this morning.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected outside of any thunderstorm activity
this afternoon. Best chances are for klal as well as kpgd, kfmy, and
krsw. Chances are too low to mention for the other sites. Light and
variable winds this morning will become more southwest to west along
the coast this afternoon with the sea breeze.

Marine
High pressure will remain over the region for the next several days.

Winds and seas will be briefly higher in or near thunderstorms, but
otherwise no headlines are expected.

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.
