Update
A wet weather pattern will continue for the next few days..

Current... Center of the large high pressure ridge to our north
currently sits offshore the mid atlantic states. Local RAOB drwp
data show that stout easterly flow remains in place across ecfl,
averaging about 20-23kt in the lowest 1km, veering decreasing to
se 15-20kt in the 1-2km layer, and S 10-15kt @2-3km. Radar visible
satellite imagery show widespread clouds with scattered to locally
numerous showers along and south of an orlando-melbourne line, with
a few embedded thunderstorms now beginning to pop over the treasure
coast counties. Not surprising, given that this morning's kxmr raob
shows a temperature profile similar to Saturday but without the weak
cap that had been in place.

Looking aloft, multichannel watervapor and RUC analysis data show a
negative tilt mid-upper level trough moving into the mid mississippi
valley. Mid level flow remains rather flat and weakly divergent for
the time being, with stronger divergence approaching from the N w.

Remainder of today... Forecast trend of cloudy skies with higher
precip chances looking good, per both the global and higher-res
models. About the only nudge I can think of is to increase pops by
about 10 percent across the southern CWA to 70 given current radar
trends. Otherwise, numerous showers and a few storms with maxes in
the u70s to l80s away from the coast.

Aviation Numerous shra isolated TS continue along the kvrb-ksua
corridor, with this activity poised to spread north and inland
during the day. Expect ifr vsbys near 1sm in +shra TS with cigs
vv005 to ovc015 in the most intense precip cores. Convective wind
gusts of 30-40kt possible, mainly along the coast, as kvrb reached
27kt a little before 12z in a brief +shra.

Marine No changes needed to the current SCA in place areawide.

Latest buoy data continues to show a solid 20-22kt of easterly flow
with 5-7ft seas near the coast and around 8ft well offshore. Bhs
continues for rough, choppy surf at the beaches.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... Small craft advisory until 11 pm edt this evening for flagler
beach to volusia-brevard county line 0-20 nm-sebastian
inlet to jupiter inlet 0-20 nm-volusia-brevard county line
to sebastian inlet 0-20 nm.

Small craft advisory until 11 am edt Monday for flagler beach to
volusia-brevard county line 20-60 nm-sebastian inlet to
jupiter inlet 20-60 nm-volusia-brevard county line to
sebastian inlet 20-60 nm.

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.
