Update
Today... Morning soundings show just a bit more moisture in place
compared to yesterday. Pw values some 1 4 inch higher than this time
yesterday. Still values only near of just below 1.5 inch at xmr to
near 1.8 in tbw. Soundings also continue to show relatively warm air
aloft due to ridge still being nearly stacked over region.

Pronounced cap around h7 with temps +11 to 12c over central fl, and
h5 readings -4 to -5c. The affects of the ridge will continue to
supress convection, but increased moisture should increase coverage
compared to yesterday. Ongoing shra activity over coastal waters
support this idea.

Short range guidance, both local arw-wrf and hrrr depict shra first
developing near or just inland of the coast south of the CAPE with
more vigorous storm development over the interior by late afternoon
due to east and west coast sea breeze interaction. Low level ridge
position a bit south of past days should support more focus closer
to the coast north of the CAPE (along i-4 coridor), but
aformentioned models have backed off on coverage compared to
previous runs. Will continue to monitor trends. Weak steering flow
from south to north will support localized heavy rainfall,
especially along breeze collision and secondary boundary
interactions... Again mainly over the interior.

Will keep forecast largely as is with shra TS coverage, and
soundings support temp fcst. Only minor tweaks to winds made for
ongoing trends.

Aviation
Vfr into midday with scattered tsra developing this afternoon
focused on northern terminals (mco sfb dab) where breeze boundary
interactions will be more pronounced late. Will consider tempo
period with 18z update.

Marine
Prev... Today... Atlc ridge axis draped across central fl and
adjacent atlc will produce a southerly flow turning SE near the
coast in a sea breeze this afternoon. A small (2 ft) east swell will
be the primary contribution to wave height in addition to a small
wind chop. Combined seas up to 4 ft well offshore (beyond 20 nm)
volusia and brevard coasts.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

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.
