Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion
Latest rap40 analysis reveals anticyclonic flow thru the h100-h70
lyr extending from the carolina coast to the NE gomex, generating a
steady E NE breeze acrs central fl. This particular flow regime
tends to produce low diurnal tsra activity over the east central
peninsula, and this one was no different. Late aftn convection along
the i-4 corridor btwn deland and kissimmee did manage to generate
excessive cg ltg and strong wind gusts over W orange NW osceola
counties, but most of the CWA remained dry this aftn. By sunset,
convection had either dissipated or had packed on the west
peninsula.

Upstream low mid lvl moisture is on the low side with h100-h70 mean
rh values blo 70pct north of sebastian inlet, and btwn 70-75pct
south of the inlet. Furthermore, mid lvl omega upr lvl divergence
fields show a neutral or weakly sinking airmass... LCL lapse rates
thru the h70-h50 lyr arnd 5.5c km are marginally unstable at best.

Strength depth of the onshore flow may allow a brief isold low-
topped shra to dvlp over the gulf stream south of sebastian inlet,
that could advect onshore. N of the inlet, airmass is too dry for
any shras to survive outside of the gulf stream long enough to
survive their would be trek over the cool shelf waters. Aftn fcst
package looks fine with slgt chc shras along the immediate treasure
coast from vero beach southward. Remainder of the CWA will be dry.

Light winds and clearing skies will allow overnight temps to cool to
to into the l m70s.

Broad ridge axis extending from off the carolina coast into the deep
south will generate a light to gentle E NE breeze acrs the LCL atlc.

Seas AOB 2ft... Mainly in an E NE background swell. Isold shras in
the gulf stream, mainly S of sebastian inlet.

Hydrology (prev disc)
heavy rainfall near and upstream from lake harney has caused a
slight rise to continue for the st johns river above lake harney
near geneva. The river is expected to remain in action stage this
week, rising very slowly through late week before leveling out.

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.
