Discussion
Heat index readings between 104 and 106 today...

sfc analysis shows low level ridge axis remains across south fl with
a weak high pressure center over the eastern gulf of mexico. This is
producing more of a NW flow this morning, albeit light. And this
weaker flow will limit how quickly gulf convection can push east
across the peninsula but the west coast sea breeze will dominate
once again. Meanwhile, because of the lighter offshore flow, the
east coast sea breeze will be able to develop earlier than yesterday
and penetrate a little farther inland. Collisions will occur later
in the day which will produce scattered lightning storms focused on
the east side of the peninsula so the 40 to 50 percent pops look
good. Mid level ridge providing suppression and warm temps aloft.

Morning CAPE sounding found +10c at 700 mb and -5.5c at 500 mb. This
will support above normal temps in the mid 90s across much of ec fl,
except low 90s at the coast. With dewpoints in the mid to upper 70s,
heat index values will be 104 to 106 with briefly higher values up
to 108 possible.

Aviation Light w-nw flow this morning, continuing into the
afternoon over the interior, except becoming onshore (east) along
the coast behind the sea breeze. Scattered showers storms in the
afternoon with deep moisture across the area. Highest coverage late
in day early evening surrounding additional larger - sea
breeze mesoscale boundary interactions.

Marine
Favorable boating conditions. Low level ridge axis remains across
south fl this morning while sfc analysis shows a weak secondary high
center over the eastern gulf producing a light NW flow over the
area. This offshore flow is weaker than yesterday so expect earlier
formation of the sea breeze near the coast. Scattered storms may
affect the intracoastal waters, ESP volusia and brevard, as well as
the larger inland lakes during the mid to late aftn. Seas 1-2 ft
near shore and up to 3 ft well offshore.

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.
