Discussion
The squall line is currently in place from NW sumter county
sw through pinellas county, and continuing SW through the
rest of the central coastal waters. The line continues to
slow in its progression through the area, but there
continues to be strong winds aloft and high helicity and
shear, so will allow the severe thunderstorm watch in place
continue through 10pm tonight. Have also adjusted the pops
for the overnight period and will update for that. Rest of
forecast is on track.

Aviation
Squall line is moving into the northern TAF sites currently.

Will continue to spread southward through the evening hours
and gradually clear north to south as well toward morning.

Have MVFR ceilings continuing through the later morning
hours, then finally lifting in the afternoon. Winds veer to
the west behind the line.

Marine
The squall line will continue to move through the coastal
waters through the overnight hours, with lingering showers
remaining behind it. SCA will continue across the area
through 4am, with another SCA likely needed for seas only
there after as significant swells from the west gulf move
into the waters. Winds turn to the west through tomorrow,
then the N NW for Sunday and Monday. Will keep current watch
and advisories for now. Current forecast is on track.

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.
