Update
An upper low over the ms al coastline is producing just
enough instability to produce some low mid cloudiness over
the west coast of florida this morning. Some showers are
showing up well off the coast, but are not expected to
impact any of the west central and southwest florida areas
today. Pw values are already lower than 24 hours ago and is
expected to continue to decrease over the next 24-48 hours.

No changes needed for the morning update.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected at all terminals for the next 24
hours. Drier air moving into the area should keep conditions
rain free. Winds will be light and variable this morning,
then slightly increasing with an onshore flow this
afternoon, but still remaining less than 10 knots.

Marine
Light east to northeast flow will become more northerly as high
pressure lifts northwest of the region. As the gradient
will remain light, the seabreeze will allow winds to shift
onshore near the coast each afternoon. Dry conditions are
expected much of the coming week, with gradually increasing
rain chances by the weekend. No marine hazards are expected
during this time.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
