Update
Pretty quiet evening across the area with only a few light showers
being observed on radar. Shower activity will diminish over the next
few hours before a mostly clear overnight is expected. It will remain
warm and muggy however with lows in the 70s. Similar weather expected
again for Friday with above normal temperatures and isolated shower
chances from tampa bay north. No changes made for the evening update.

Aviation
Vfr expected through the period. Winds will become light out of the
east to northeast tonight into Friday morning, then the sea breeze
will turn winds onshore at the coastal sites in the afternoon.

Similar to the past couple of mornings, we could see some patchy fog
at the normally fog-prone terminals, but nothing that should linger
for an extended period.

Marine
East to northeast winds will persist through the end of the week, with
a weak sea breeze forming near the coast each afternoon. Winds will
generally remain less than 15 knots except for tonight, when they will
increase to near cautionary levels. For the weekend, winds will shift
from south to southwest Saturday to northeast on Sunday as a cool
front moves across the waters. Wind speeds will remain less than 15

easterly flow will then return early next week.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
