AMZ500 Synopsis For Flagler Beach To Jupiter Inlet Out To 60 Nm- 404 Am Edt Mon Mar 25 2019
Synopsis..High pressure ridge axis will extend from the southwest atlantic across central florida today. A cold front is forecast to settle across the local atlantic waters Tuesday. Low pressure is forecast to develop along the front just east of the waters Wednesday while at the same time, strong high pressure builds south across the area. These two features will combine to produce near gale conditions and rapidly building seas Wednesday into Thursday.
Gulf stream hazards..None. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Friday march 22nd. 43 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 32 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 29 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 18 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 9 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Discussion
Becoming windy Wednesday with dangerous boating and surf
conditions developing...

today... South to southwest flow around departing high pressure
over the atlc will produce above normal temperatures around 80
coast and mid 80s interior. The airmass will continue to gradually
moisten as indicated by scattered stratocumulus. A few showers
will affect the treasure coast counties where SE flow is a little
stronger. Mesoscale models are trying to produce a few showers
late in the day over ec fl assocd with enhanced moisture
convergence pseudo sea breeze collision. Have drawn a silent 10
pop across northern sections for this as atmos looks too dry to
support higher coverage.

Tonight... A weak cold front will push into north florida
resulting in a light W SW flow. Low temps will be in the upper
50s lower 60s.

Tue... A weak cold front will push southward through the area late
Tuesday into Tuesday evening, with warm and mostly dry conditions
expected out ahead of the front. Highs will reach the low 80s over
much of the region Tuesday, with only a slight chance for showers
mainly toward the coast as the sea breeze develops toward mid to
late afternoon.

Tue night-thu... A sharp S W aloft will move through florida Tuesday
night into Wednesday, inducing a weak low just offshore and along
the cold front. This will create a very tight pressure gradient
across the area between this system and high pressure to the north
into mid week. Deteriorating beach and marine conditions expected as
n NE flow becomes breezy to windy Wednesday. Large breaking waves
will produce dangerous surf and a high risk of life threatening rip
currents, as well as minor to moderate beach erosion during times of
high tide Wednesday through Thursday. A high surf advisory will
likely be needed along the coast each day.

The elevated low level NE flow will increase rain chances north of
the treasure coast into Tuesday night, with likely pops (60-70%)
forecast for areas northeast of a line from orlando to melbourne.

Highest rain chances then expected along the coast into Wednesday up
to 50-60 percent, decreasing to 30 percent or less along the coast
Wednesday night through Thursday as sfc low and mid level S W shift
farther east into the atlantic and away from the area. Coolest temps
expected Wednesday with highs in the mid to upper 60s across volusia
and northern portions of lake and brevard counties, and in the low
to mid 70s farther south. Onshore flow then slightly modifies temps
into Thursday, but highs still in the low to mid 70s over much of
the area.

Fri-sun... Pressure gradient will weaken into late week and through
the weekend as high pressure ridge axis settles southward and across
the region. It will remain mostly dry, with only a slight chance for
onshore moving showers, mainly south of the CAPE at times. With flow
remaining onshore through much of the period, temps will continue to
climb, reaching back into the low 80s across the interior by this
weekend.

Aviation Vfr through 06z 26. Light S SE breeze this morning
will veer SW to W over interior terminals this afternoon and back
e to SE mlb- sua behind a sea breeze. Wind speeds 12kts or less.

After sunset, uniform W SW flow less than 10 knots will develop
all terminals. MVFR CIGS may move in aft 06z at lee dab assocd
with an approaching cold front.

Marine
Today... High pressure ridge axis will be located across central fl
and the adjacent atlc waters. This will produce a southerly flow
across the volusia waters and SE flow brevard and treasure coast
waters. Wind speeds around 10 knots, becoming 10-15 knots across
the northern offshore waters late in the day. Seas 2-3 feet.

Tonight... Winds will veer sw-w as ridge axis pulls east of the
area and weak cold front approaches. Wind speeds around 15 knots
across the northern (volusia) waters and 10 knots across the
southern (treasure coast) waters. Seas building to 4 feet offshore
volusia.

Tue-fri... Nw flow into Tuesday will quickly veer onshore and rapidly
strengthen north of the CAPE Tuesday night behind a weak cold front
pushing south through the waters. Weak low that develops along this
boundary will further increase the pressure gradient into mid week.

N NE winds will increase to 20-25 knots nearshore and up to 25-30
knots offshore into Wednesday, with frequent gusts to gale force
possible, especially offshore. Long NE fetch combined with the
strong N NE flow will produce large waves up to 10-15 feet into
Wednesday.

Boating conditions will remain hazardous into late week as winds and
seas only slowly decrease through the period. NE winds will still
reside up to 20-25 knots Thursday morning, gradually decreasing to
10-15 knots into Friday. Seas up to 9-13 feet Thursday will fall to
7-9 feet on Friday.

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.
