Update
Early evening IR satellite imagery is showing much of the
cloudiness breaking out after a largely overcast day across
the area. Breezy north winds and clearing skies will allow
cooler and drier air to continue to spread into the area
overnight, with lows on track to bottom out in the mid 30s
to mid 40s over the nature coast, and the mid 40s to low
50s farther south. With wind speeds holding around 5-10 mph
overnight, wind chills are expected to reach into the low to
mid 30s over the nature coast.

Overall, the forecast looks on track. The wind speeds were
bumped up over the gulf waters overnight, but no other
changes are planned for the evening update.

Aviation
Periods of MVFR ceilings will continue through around 02z,
but clouds will generally break up and lift out overnight.

Generally clear skies will take over by Friday morning,
under breezy north winds.

Marine
Breezy winds will continue overnight as high pressure builds
in from the northwest. The small craft advisory for the gulf
waters will be allowed to expire at 9 pm est, but small
craft exercise caution headlines will remain through at
least the overnight period as sustained winds hold just shy
of 20 knots. Northeast winds will continue to subside Friday
through the weekend as high pressure settles in north of the
waters.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
