Discussion
High pressure centered over northern fl this morning will
lift out to the NE today as a low pressure system moves east
through the east central us. Weak ridging will remain in
place across the local area as this system passes by to the
north, then the next cold front will push into the area
Saturday night bringing rain chances, and clear out Sunday.

Highs are on track to reach into the upper 60s to mid 70s
this afternoon, with a general warming trend starting and
going through Saturday night ahead of the front. No updates
planned.

Aviation
Vfr conditions are expected to prevail for the next 24 hours
with light northeast winds becoming northwest at 6 to 10
knots near the coast this afternoon.

Marine
A generally light NE flow will be in place through tonight,
then winds start to slowly veer to the E SE into the weekend
as the next front approaches. This will move through the
area Saturday night Sunday, with winds and seas increasing
as winds turn to the NW and n. Winds and seas subside Monday
as high pressure builds in and winds turn to the ne. Current
forecast is on track and have little change for the update.

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.
