Discussion
Today... High pressure will nose in across the area from the gulf of
mexico as strong low pressure along the NE u.S. Coast pulls away.

Very dry airmass will produce clear skies with west to northwest
winds around 10 mph. After a cool morning, temps will warm quickly
through the 60s this morning, reaching the mid 70s this afternoon.

The primary hazard today will be moderate, long period swells
producing a high risk of rip currents at the beaches. The threat
will be greatest during the afternoon and early evening, a few hours
either side of low tide.

Tonight... Below normal temps expected again with clear skies and
light winds. Mins should reach the upper 40s and lower 50s most
areas with some mid 40s in normally colder locations such as
okeechobee and interior treasure coast counties.

Sat-mon... Mostly-zonal flow aloft over the weekend becomes weakly
cyclonic Mon as trough approaches eastern seaboard and begins to
deepen. Very dry conditions remain in place Sat even with onshore
flow associated with surface high located near the carolina coast.

Winds veering to east Sun will increase onshore fetch and begin
slow moisture recovery. Expect precip-free wx to continue through
the period, although precipitable water values will rise from an
average of a half inch sat, to 0.75 inch sun, to near 1 inch mon
as low level flow acquires SE component south of ridge axis
extending from mid atlantic to north central fl peninsula. Temps
rise a few degrees each day, with maxs trending from a little
below climo Sat to near normal Sun then slightly above normal mon.

Sun Mon morning mins generally in mid upper 50s, except 60-65
along the coast south of the cape.

Tue-thu... Shortwave trough crosses CWA tue, reaching atlantic by
early wed. Associated surface front will move across region tue,
bringing small shower chances (20-30 percent), followed by a strong
ne wind surge developing across CWA from N to S overnight tue
into wed. It will become breezy windy along the coast with
scattered coastal showers moving onshore overnight and extending
far inland wed. Showers should remain mostly confined to coastal
areas Wed night, with isolated showers areawide Thu as moisture
and winds begin to lessen. Temps drop back a few degrees tue
toward climo again, then pronounced post-frontal cooling wed,
especially north and central CWA with 24-hour change near 10
degrees, ranging to about 5 degrees cooler south. Warming trend
quickly commences thu, but still below climo. Mins generally in
the 50s, except near 60 along the coast south of the cape.

Aviation Vfr skc with wind speeds less than 15 knots.

Marine
Today... Small craft advisory conditions occurring over the offshore
waters gulf stream early this morning with NW winds around 20 knots,
around 15 knots closer to the coast. Winds will decrease this
morning as deep low pressure off the new england coast continues to
pull away and high pressure ridge builds east from the gulf of
mexico over the area, relaxing the pressure gradient. Although winds
speeds will decrease to 10-15 knots, seas will be slow to subside
below 7 feet in the gulf stream so will maintain an advisory for
seas there thru 4 pm.

Tonight... After a lull early this evening, reinforcing high pressure
will build over the area and produce northwest to north winds around
15 knots which will keep choppy 4-5 foot seas over much of the local
atlc waters.

Sat-sun... Ne winds near 10 kt Sat veers E 10-15 kt overnight and
sun as high pressure center moves from inland carolinas to
offshore. Seas 3-4 ft nearshore and up to 5 feet offshore.

Mon-tue night... Ridge axis extends west from the central atlantic
high, across the local waters Mon then drops south as a cold
front approaches the northernmost waters early tue. Ahead of the
front, winds veer S SW and weaken 5-10 kt. Front clears the area
by late in the day tue, with strong NE wind surge quickly
developing across northern waters by sunset tue, then expanding
southward to at least the central waters (and perhaps southern
waters) overnight. Seas 2-3 ft prior to wind surge, then seas
likely building rapidly Tue night, especially across the northern
waters, reaching 6-8 ft (or more) nearshore and 7-9 feet (or more)
offshore by daybreak wed. Scattered showers expanding southward
tue and Tue night.

Fire weather
Today... A dry W NW flow will produce min rh values around 25 percent
from orlando northward and around 30 percent to the south. Winds
will be less than 15 knots so do not anticipate red flag conditions
but increasingly dry soils will produce a fire sensitive day.

Sat... Very dry airmass will continue one additional day. 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.

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.
