Discussion
Tonight... An elongated area of high pressure, with centers northwest
of the great lakes and over north central gulf of mexico will be
moving east tonight, stretching towards the fl peninsula. At the
mid and upper levels, a ridge will also be moving eastward from
the central plains. Clear skies will continue tonight for east
central fl, with winds starting from the northwest at 5 to 10 mph
and will shift from the north late tonight while dropping to
around 5 mph. Temperatures will drop to the mid to upper 40s for
most of east central fl except for the orlando metro area and
coast, where they will only drop to near 50.

Sat... The high pressure, centered over kentucky and indiana on
sat morning, will stretch south towards south fl and the bahamas
by the end of the day. Weather conditions will be similar to
Friday, with clear skies and winds from the north to east.

Temperatures will start in the cool side and rise to the upper 70s
across the interior and treasure coast while topping at the mid
70s for the space coast northward. No precipitation expected.

Sunday Monday... Surface ridge moves off the southeast coast and
into the western atlantic with low level flow continuing to veer.

Ridge elongates with western extent to nose of ridge bisecting
central florida by Monday. Atmosphere moistens especially over
southern half of area with onshore flow but since it starts with
such a dry environment, period will remain precipitation free with
only an increase in mainly diurnal clouds on Monday. Expect
temperatures near seasonal norms, highs in upper 70s to low 80s on
Monday with cooler than normal lows returning to normal values
mainly in upper 50s to around 60.

Tuesday-Thursday... Broad upper trough over the eastern half of the
conus will support a weak short wave rotating through base of
trough through the mid miss valley and then offshore the
carolinas. Mid level wave supports some degree of surface
development offshore the carolina coast or south of there and
well offshore fl. Regardless some amount of moisture will back
into ecfl especially the coastal counties Tuesday Wednesday and
perhaps less so on Thursday. Lack of consistency between models as
well as run to run, so will make only very minimal changes to
previous forecast and to better align with surrounding wfos.

Temperatures through period a bit cooler than normal Wed Thu due
to cloud cover and showers.

Aviation
Vfr conditions continuing tonight into Saturday with clear skies
and winds shifting from the northwest tonight to northeast sat
morning and east by the end of the day.

Marine
Tonight-sat... Gentle to moderate breezes tonight from the northwest
will become northeast by Sat morning and drop to light and gentle in
the afternoon. Northeast swells that have been affecting our local
waters will continue to subside, improving our seas conditions for
the weekend. Seas 3 to 5 feet tonight and Sat morning will subside
to 3 to 4 feet by Sat afternoon.

Sunday Monday... Nose of western atlantic ridge will result in
southeast flow over southern waters to southwest over the north.

As surface wave gets organized east of area west flow can be
expected Tuesday becoming north and then northeast and increasing
as ridge builds in behind wave Wednesday. P-grad tightens
significantly by mid week and small craft adv will likely be
needed.

Fire weather
Sat (previous modified)... Similar weather conditions to today
Friday are forecast for sat, with a very dry airmass over the fl
peninsula. MAX temps reaching mid upper 70s, combined with
dewpoints in the 40s will cause rh values to plummet inland, with
min rh reaching 25-30 percent across far interior (mainly lake
county) and 30-35 percent west of a line from lake george to
sanford, orlando and st. Cloud. Winds however will be light ne,
5-10 mph.

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.
