These winds will place portions of the local atlantic within the shadow of the north bahamas, resulting in rough, short period wind waves and poor boating conditions. Small craft operators will need to exercise caution.
Gulf stream hazards..East to southeast winds 15 to 20 knots with seas 5 to 6 feet and dominant periods less than 7 seconds. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Monday february 19th. 41 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 29 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 24 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 16 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 9 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Discussion
Rap40 analysis shows a strong high pres ridge over the W atlc deep
south dominating the LCL wx pattern. Anticyclonic flow around the
base of the ridge generating a brisk E SE flow acrs central fl, as
confirmed by the LCL wind profilers. Upstream moisture is lacking
with h100-h70 mean rh values AOB 60pct, while mid lvl capping
remains quite strong with h85-h70 lapse rates arnd 5.5c km over the
i-4 corridor decreasing to arnd 2.0c km SE of lake-o. Mid upr lvl
analysis reveals h85-h30 omega vorticity and h30-h20 divergence
fields that are largely flat with little moisture... H85-h50 dewpoint
depressions arnd 20c... H70-h50 btwn 20-25c.

Mild wx pattern will continue this aftn with warm temps and
negligible precip chances. A few sprinkles psbl from brief, low-
topped coastal shras, but no measurable precip expected. MAX temps
in the l80s along the coast, m80s interior.

Marine
Poor boating conditions as a high pres ridge extending from bermuda
into the deep south maintains a moderate to fresh E SE breeze over
the LCL atlc waters. LCL data buoy c-man network indicating
sustained winds arnd 15kts with ocnl gusts near 20kts. While not
strict criteria for a small craft advisory, short wave pds AOB 6sec
areawide are certainly generating rough conditions, especially south
of sebastian inlet with the brisk SE flow placing the treasure coast
waters in the shadow of grand bahama island. Will hoist a short term
sca for the gulf stream waters from brevard county south, cautionary
statements elsewhere.

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.
