Marine Weather and Tides
Bear Creek, FL

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.

130 am edt Sat jul 21 2018

Aviation
A few showers are moving east off the gulf and into
southwest florida near kpgd kfmy krsw, and could cause brief
flight category disruptions through around 09z. After 09z,
these gulf showers are likely to be farther north, and could
impact tampa bay area terminals through after sunrise.

Scattered thunderstorms will then be possible across the
area from the mid morning through afternoon and early
evening, then will diminish overnight.

Prev discussion issued 802 pm edt Fri jul 20 2018
for the evening update...

a few showers persist this evening but will gradually
dissipate by midnight. A trough of low pressure surface and
aloft over north florida will gradually sink south across
the florida peninsula tonight and Saturday. Deep southwest
flow persists over the region, and the atmosphere will
become increasingly unstable over the northern central
coastal waters late tonight with numerous showers and a few
thunderstorms developing ahead of the surface trough.

Shower thunderstorm activity will advect onshore late
tonight early Saturday morning with locally heavy rain
possible. Still some uncertainty where the band of the most
concentrated shower thunderstorm activity will
develop... But will likely be near or just north of the tampa
bay area. The heavy rain may cause localized flooding of
streets and low lying areas... Especially if training cells
develop in the deep southwest flow. Will increase pops late
tonight over west central florida and portions of the
nature... With highest pops near the coast. Highest qpf
totals will also likely occur near the coast. The area of
showers and thunderstorms will gradually push to the south
through the day on Saturday as the trough sinks south across
the region.

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.
