Discussion
Thru tonight... East coast sea breeze marching steadily inland
enhanced by thunderstorm outflow near the coast. Boundary
collisions will produce scattered storms through sunset over the
interior counties, including lake and metro orlando. Showers and
storms should linger past sunset ESP west of orlando with all
activity ending by midnight.

Previous discussion...

thu-fri... High pressure at the surface extends down the eastern
seaboard into Thursday, with low level flow becoming onshore and
strengthening to around 10-15 knots through Friday. Pw values across
the area will average around 1.6-1.8 inches, with models indicating
some areas of drier air moving through into late Thursday night into
early Friday. This moisture would be sufficient for scattered shower
and storm development each afternoon. However, with temps aloft
remaining rather warm on Thursday, will keep pops below normal
around 20-30 percent across much of the area. Models then indicate
an upper low breaking off from trough over the atlantic and pushing
westward across the southern fl peninsula Friday. This will lead to
cooler temps aloft and a more unstable airmass, increasing rain
chances, especially for southern portions of east central florida.

Pops for Friday will range from 30 percent from the orlando area
northward to 40-50 percent farther south.

Lower shower storm coverage and weaker onshore flow Thursday will
allow highs to again reach into the mid 90s over the interior, while
along the coast MAX temps will reach the upper 80s to around 90
degrees. Then, increasing onshore winds and convection cloud cover
associated with passing upper level low will lead to highs in the
upper 80s most areas Friday, except low 90s over the far interior.

Sat-tue... Low aloft shifts west of florida Saturday, with a deep
e SE flow continuing across the area through the weekend into early
next week as ridge extends north of the region. This pattern will
favor isolated to scattered showers moving onshore along the coast
overnight into the morning hours. Then showers and storms developing
along the coast into the late morning and early afternoon and
increasing in coverage across the interior through the remainder of
the day. Moisture remains sufficient for chance pops (30-50 percent)
across much of the area each day through the period. Highs will
continue to reach the upper 80s to low 90s, with lows in the low to
mid 70s.

Aviation
MainlyVFR. East coast sea breeze will push inland, initiating early
afternoon convection for kmlb ktix and reaching inland terminals by
20 21z. Maintaining vcts thru sunset for isolated coverage west of
kmco.

Marine
*note to users: NOAA buoy 41010 has stopped transmitting wave data.

Ndbc is aware of the outage and will identify the problem and
schedule maintenance.

Tonight... Winds will veer southerly as the sea breeze circulation
diminishes this evening then a light offshore (w sw) flow will
develop toward morning. Seas 2 ft nearshore and 3 ft offshore.

Thu-sun (modified)... Winds become onshore as high pressure builds
south along the eastern seaboard. Winds speeds will increase up
to 10-15 knots, especially Friday and Saturday. A combination of
wind driven waves and swells will build wave heights to 4 feet thu
into Fri offshore and 5 feet this weekend.

Climate Record highs for today, Wednesday september 19th...

sanford has tied their record high of 96f this afternoon.

Daytona beach came within 1 degree of their record high before the
sea breeze pushed through.

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.
