Discussion
Mid level S W aloft is pushing through florida, with tightening
pressure gradient across the region between low pressure over the
mid-atlantic coast and high pressure building in from the west.

This will lead to a strengthening low level flow off the surface
with winds veering to the N nw, ushering in even drier cooler air
into central florida. Skies will remain clear with temperatures
becoming somewhat chilly overnight, with lows ranging from the mid
to upper 40s over much of the area, except low 50s around the
orlando metro area and along portions of the coast, south of the
cape.

Aviation Vfr next 24 hours. Gusty westerly winds will fall to
around 5-8 knots late this evening and overnight.

Marine A significant surge in W NW winds expected across the
waters tonight, with wind speeds increasing to 15-20 knots
nearshore and up to 20-25 knots briefly offshore. Seas already
around 7-8 feet over the gulf stream will build up to 9 feet
offshore with this wind surge. SCA remains in effect offshore and
nearshore, south of sebastian inlet. Farther north, small craft
should exercise caution nearshore.

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.
