Update
Cape canaveral and tampa morning soundings still indicate a rather
dry airmass across central fl with extremely dry air in the h7-h5
layer. Morning pwat values ranged from .89 at tampa to 1.13 at the
cape. High pressure will transition eastward off the eastern
seaboard with low level southerly flow today. The east and west
coast sea breezes will develop and move inland with an early evening
sea breeze collision from near lake george to kissimmee. Some of the
high resolution model guidance has some late day showers across the
nrn interior but think it will take the sea breeze collision after 7
pm to get a few showers to potentially develop. High temperatures
will conservatively reach the mid 80s near the east coast and upper
80s for the interior. Expect a few interior locations to reach 90
degrees. Long period east swells will continue a moderate risk for
rip currents at east coast beaches.

Aviation
Vfr. Light/variable winds will become se/s increasing to 6-12 kts
inland/volusia coast and near 15 kts along the immediate
space/treasure coasts. The east coast sea breeze will venture inland
this afternoon/early evening with an evening sea breeze collision
about 10-15 miles west of the kded-ksfb-kmco corridor 23z-01z. Few
shra may develop in this area into the evening hours.

Marine
South winds up to 10-15 knots today becoming SE with the east coast
sea breeze near the coast in the afternoon/early evening. Seas 3-4
ft in an east swell. Southerly winds increase to 15-20 knots
offshore tonight which will likely necessitate scec headlines for
tonight.

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.
