Discussion
Current-overnight... 915mhz CAPE wind profilers showing deep easterly
flow from the surface through at least 8.0kft. The average for 20 kt
winds run from just off the surface thru around 4.0kft. High
pressure was located over the western atlc with ridge axis north of
florida. Easterly winds will gradually decrease this evening and
overnight but remain more elevated along the immediate space and
treasure coasts. Few sprinkles or brief shower noted on radar across
southern st. Lucie cty and volusia cty. Additional light precip over
the coastal waters. This all should diminish late in the night with
coastal locales most susceptible to a nuisance sprinkle. Rainfall

interior.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
