807 pm edt Sat jul 22 2017

Update
Still have a few lingering showers and a couple of
thunderstorms over the land zones this evening but the
majority of the activity has diminished. As can be expected
with W SW flow, the evening ktbw sounding sampled a very
moist airmass with a pwat value of 1.92 inches. For the
evening update, made some minor adjustments to pops between
now and daybreak Sunday but overall changes were very minor.

Expecting a similar weather setup for Sunday with showers
and thunderstorms developing over the gulf waters overnight
and slowly pushing onshore during the morning hours on
Sunday. Overnight lows will be warm and muggy with mid to
upper 70s forecast, near 80 along the coast.

Aviation
Light and variable winds expected again during the overnight
hours with predominateVFR CIGS expected. Onshore flow
continues into the day Sunday with early morning showers and
storms possible at TAF sites. Vcts introduced in the 12-15z
timeframe and continuing into the afternoon. Winds will
become more westerly during the afternoon hours but should
stay below 10 knots outside of any convective activity.

Marine
High pressure ridge will persist across south florida through
much of the period. The ridge axis will meander a bit north
for early next week, putting some SE flow in across the
southern waters, but otherwise winds will remain mainly from
the SW through the period. This will keep scattered
thunderstorms in the forecast each day mainly in the
overnight through morning hours. Wind speeds and seas will
remain light through the period except in the vicinity of
the scattered storms.

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.
