Synopsis..A high pressure ridge will remain north of the waters through mid week. This will result in a prevailing onshore breeze which freshens a bit early in the week. The onshore flow will bring a few periods of scattered showers and storms over the atlantic waters through the middle of the week. The ridge will shift back to the south late in the week, which will produce a south to southwest wind flow and promote offshore moving storms in the afternoon.
Gulf stream hazards..None. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Sunday august 20th. 42 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 30 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 26 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 16 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 10 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Discussion
Current-today... 915 mhz CAPE wind profilers show deep onshore flow
across the area as high pressure ridging remains north of ecfl. A
few lingering showers ahead of the much drier approaching air (from
the south) will lift from near kmlb northward with any afternoon
thunder potential generally north of i-4 this afternoon as pop
chances stay well below climo today. 10z kxmr sounding shows a pwat
of 1.79 inches while kmfl kkey both respectively at 1.37 1.30
inches, which shows the drier air yet to infiltrate into the region
from the south. Expect improving sky conditions from the south to
the north through the afternoon. Highs generally in the u80s to l90s
areawide.

Tonight... Previous... Deep layer high pressure ridge to our north
will provide deep easterly flow. Drier air over the area will
preclude pops except in the south where moisture will start to
return as the next inverted trough approaches. With the amount of
drier air preceding this feature, won't go above MOS pops as the
models charged moisture back into the area a little too quickly with
this last inverted trough. MOS has 20-30% pops along the treasure
coast after midnight, and have followed close to that.

Aviation MainlyVFR conditions. Deep onshore flow with drier air
filtering into the area from the southeast during the day. Few
showers with local MVFR, perhaps an isold rumble of thunder north of
kmlb. Any lingering convective threat moves i-4 northward this
afternoon as coverage of shra tsra remains well below normal as a
whole. Deep layer drying trend continues into the night, but the
approach of another inverted trough with deeper moisture moves into
the treasure coast by sunrise Tue morning with some shower potential.

Marine Today-tonight... The high pressure ridge axis will maintain
an onshore flow across ecfl with speeds around 10 kts except around
15 kts gulf stream south of sebastian inlet. Seas will build 3-4 ft
near shore and 4-5 ft well offshore through the period. Drier deep
layer air moving across the waters today will be replaced once again
by increasing moisture from the south late tonight as an inverted
trough approaches.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
