GMZ800 Synopsis For The Coastal Waters From Bonita Beach To Suwannee River- 1001 Am Edt Fri Jul 28 2017
Synopsis..Surface high pressure will remain across south florida today. The high will move south to the florida straits during the weekend as a cold front sinks south toward north florida. As the front sinks south an uptick in westerly winds will occur across the central and northern gulf waters as the pressure gradient tightens some. During early next week the front will wash out across the north central gulf waters as surface high pressure begins to rebuild in over the southern peninsula. Increasing deep layered moisture and the presence of the frontal boundary will support increasing chances for showers and Thunderstorms over the waters late in the weekend and continuing into early next week. Wind and seas will be higher in the vicinity of Thunderstorms, otherwise no headlines are anticipated.

Update
Just some minor tweaks to rainfall chances needed this
morning. A few showers and thunderstorms are moving in
along the nature coast from the gulf, and a small area of
showers and storms have developed along the southwest coast
of lee county. These showers over the nature coast will
likely continue to move inland and be east of our area by
this afternoon. The showers over lee county will only drift
very slowly northward as they are sitting under the deep-
layered ridge. These will eventually be pushed slowly inland
with increasing coverage this afternoon as the sea breeze
develops and pushes east.

Precipitable waters on 12z soundings are still running
below normal for late july, with tae coming in at 1.46 and
tbw and mfl at 1.67 and 1.68 respectively. This should delay
the increase in coverage until mid-afternoon, with most
activity occurring along and east of the sea breeze boundary
as it pushes steadily inland. Highest coverage this
afternoon should be in highlands county where where the west
coast sea breeze may interact with a weak lake breeze from
lake okeechobee.

Aviation
Vfr next 24 hours. Brief tsra possible for fmy and rsw as
sea breeze pushes east. Lal may also see a few storms this
afternoon.

Marine
Generally light southwest flow expected today as surface
ridge axis sinks south of the waters. Winds and seas will be
higher near isolated storms today, and there will be some
enhancement to the winds near the coast as the sea breeze
circulation strengthens around mid-day.

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.
