Discussion
Current-overnight... Conditions are quieting down after a busy
afternoon and early evening across the treasure coast and adjacent
coastal waters. Much drier air filtering down the peninsula this
evening behind a weak surface trough, located near lake okeechobee.

Dewpoints have fallen into the 50s behind this feature and remain
around 70f ahead of it. Westerly winds tonight generally 5-10 mph.

Overnight lows cooler and will range from the u50s to l60s. Will be
able to take out all pops over land with the evening zones update.

Wed-wed night... Previous... Post frontal ridge will bring a very
dry stable airmass into fl peninsula with pwat values fcst to drop
to arnd 0.75", h100-h70 mean rh values falling 35-45pct, avg
dewpoint depressions increasing to 25-30c thru the h85-h50 lyr, and
a 10-15c subsidence inversion dominating the h95-h70 lyr. Origin of
the airmass was the central SRN plains, so post-frontal cooling will
be minimal with near full Sun and light wrly flow. MAX temps in the
l m80s, within a deg or two of climo avg.

Aviation Drier post-trough conditions. Expect any shower activity
to remain south of the treasure coast. Westerly winds tonight 5-10
kts continuing into Wed but slightly stronger with some afternoon
gusts. MainlyVFR.

Marine Overnight-wed... Marginal to poor boating conditions as
seas build to 4-6 ft offshore with westerly winds increasing up to
15-20 kts before decreasing again just ahead of daybreak. Seas 3-5
ft near shore. Showers and isolated storms on the decrease this
evening and overnight south of ft. Pierce.

Wed-wed night... Previous modified... Gentle to moderate post-frontal
w wnw breeze thru midday, diminishing to a light to gentle breeze by
mid aftn as a storm system lifts up the ERN seaboard. Seas subsiding
to 2-3ft nearshore and 4-5ft offshore by early afternoon, then 2-4ft
areawide by evening.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

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.
