Synopsis..High pressure will continue to build across the eastern gulf of mexico through the weekend with generally east to southeasterly winds that turn onshore each afternoon with the sea breeze. Nocturnal surges could bring winds up to cautionary levels during the late night and early morning hours. An approaching cold front will cause a longer period of cautionary or possibly low end advisory level winds Saturday night through Sunday. Winds will then relax during the early part of the week as the front washes out across the area.

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.
