754 pm edt Fri apr 28 2017

Continued warm & dry...

Update
Surface high pressure over the western atlantic, with its western
flank building toward ga/sc, will maintain stout onshore/southeast
flow overnight. Another warm and humid night as dewpoints remain
a few degrees either side of 70f, with the warmest temps expected
along the barrier islands thanks to maritime flow.

Afternoon forecast package presents things well, so will make
minimal changes. Main forecast points for the overnight remain 1)
well above normal temperatures for late april 2) possibility of
dense smoke/mist combination near smoldering wildfires and 3)
continued dry conditions with mid/upper level ridging keeping the
local environment quite suppressed despite modest low-level
available moisture.

Early update this evening to remove today's rip current headline
now that we are past sunset.

Aviation
Elevated e/se flow will slacken overnight. Cannot not rule out
some patchy low stratus around for an hour or two early sat
morning, especially inland terminals. Otherwise,VFR Saturday
with breezy ese-se winds once again during the day.

Marine
Tonight... East-west oriented high pressure ridging moving north
of ecfl. SE winds 10-15 kts near shore and 16- 19 kts over the
gulf stream south of sebastian inlet where small craft should
exercise caution. Seas continue mainly 3-4 ft, but could approach
5 ft toward daybreak away from the coast where winds are stronger.

Sat... High pressure remains north of the local coastal waters. Serly
winds around 15 kts near shore and 17-18 kts offshore with marginal
conds in terms of cautionary statements for small craft. Seas 3-4 ft
very near shore and building to 4-5 ft over the open atlc.

Fire weather
This weekend... Deep SE flow continues areawide and should push
sufficient atlc humidity across east central fl to keep min rh
values abv critical levels. Even so, the local fire danger will
remain high as a fresh transport breeze and aftn temps in the l-m90s
generate very good to excellent dispersion. The dry ground/vegetation
combined with the hot and breezy conditions, and increasing sun
angle will continue to add to the severe/near critical fire
sensitivity.

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.
