Synopsis.. High pressure over the gulf of mexico and across florida will remain in control through the end of the week with a northeast to northerly wind flow continuing with an onshore sea breeze component developing along the coast each afternoon. Wind and seas will increase some during the upcoming weekend as the pressure gradient tightens as hurricane maria moves across the southwestern waters of the atlantic with cautionary conditions a good bet.

update...

once again much of the area remained dry today. This can be
attributed to the very dry air above 700 mb. No evening update
needed as any lingering showers will end shortly and the
current forecast accounts for this well. Clear to partly
cloudy skies expected overnight. Lows temperatures will
range from the upper 60s north, and lower to mid 70s central
and south.

Marine...

high pressure will maintain tranquil boating conditions over
the gulf waters tonight through Thursday night with north
to northeast winds around 10 knots with sea around 2 feet
with winds becoming northwest along the coast each afternoon
as the sea breeze component develops.

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.
