Discussion
Currently... Some satellite indicated cloud lines, containing briefly
enhanced strato CU near 3-4k ft will move ashore this morning. Some
light sprinkles may occur at a few coastal sites with no measurable
pcpn. Expect early sea breeze formation and movement inland during
the afternoon. The current forecast remains valid.

Prev disc...

today-tonight... Strong high pressure over the southeast u.S. And
northern fl overnight kept weather conditions dry with a few clouds
making it to the coastal communities. At the surface, high pressure
centered along the mid-atlantic coast will move away from the coast
with its ridge reaching northern fl and northeast gulf today. As
this is happening and in combination with the diurnal heating, a
brief increase in the pressure gradient over the peninsula will
increase winds in the afternoon through early evening. This will be
more notable across the treasure coast and its eastern coastal
waters. Pwat values will be around one inch and a quarter today but
with very dry mid and upper levels, chances for rain will be close
to none. Temperatures will rise to the mid 80s along the coast while
the counties away from the coast will see temps rising to the lower
to mid 90s. As the peninsula cools down in the evening, winds over
land are expected to decrease, while remaining gentle to moderate
across the waters. Another dry and mostly clear night is forecast
with temps dropping to only the upper 60s to around 70.

A small swell will approach the coastal waters of east central fl
today and with the onshore winds, a moderate risk for rip currents
is expected. Check with your local beach patrol for more information
about ocean hazards, and always swim within sight of a lifeguard.

Never swim alone.

Aviation Vfr conditions will prevail today with increasing
easterly winds in the afternoon with gusts to 20-25 knots. These
should slowly decrease in the evening.

Marine
Today-tonight... High pressure will build from the northeast and
stretch over southeast us and northern fl today and tonight.

Pressure gradient will tighten today, which will allow for winds to
increase in the afternoon through the evening, mainly for the waters
south of sebastian to jupiter island. Operators of small craft
should then exercise caution through this evening, as winds range 15-
20 kts and seas increase to 5 feet. Winds will decrease overnight
but seas will remain at 4-5 feet.

Fire weather Dry and warm conditions will continue for east
central fl today and through at least next week as no rain chances
are forecast. Heavier fuel moisture continues to decrease but
minimum relative humidities are forecast to remain in general above
35 percent. The 20 feet winds will be around 15 mph this afternoon
for the treasure coast counties and decreasing in the evening.

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.
