Discussion
Today... A dry front will sweep southeast from south fl early this
morning and through the bahamas this afternoon. In its wake deep
layer drying and northwest flow will keep skies sunny with cool
afternoon high temperatures in the lower 60s NRN sections to the mid
60s central and south.

Tonight... Surface high pressure will drift east toward south florida
overnight as another frontal boundary moves toward the southeast.

Proximity to the surface high across southern sections should allow
lows to drop into the upper 30s inland from the coast and across
okeechobee county. Across NRN sections... Westerly low level flow off
the gulf to 20-25 knots at 925 mbs will moderate temps some with
lows mainly in the lower 40s and in the mid 40s in urban areas and
near the larger inland lakes.

Thu-sun... Models show a more zonal flow aloft into Thursday, with a
s W trough axis moving through the midwest and into the southeast
Friday. This will initiate a slow southward progressing weak cool
front across the region late Friday and into the weekend. High
pressure behind this boundary will shift northeast toward the mid-
atlantic coast and offshore into the atlantic on Sunday.

Low level moisture increases out ahead of this boundary into late
week in the westerly flow. However any mentionable rain chances look
to hold off until Friday when sufficient low level moisture and
enhanced support for lift from jet north of the area may be able to
generate a few showers through the afternoon. Still, rain chances
remain low with pops ranging from 20-30 percent over mainly central
and northern portions of the region. Dry conditions then expected
through the weekend as front shifts south and stalls near lake
okeechobee region early Sunday.

Temperatures will warm to more seasonable values into late week,
with highs reaching the low to mid 70s, and lows in the 50s. A
slight and brief cool down then expected mainly for northern
portions of central florida Saturday behind the front, with highs in
the mid to upper 60s. As onshore flow strengthens with high pressure
building off the eastern seaboard, temperatures again warm into the
mid to upper 70s for highs on Sunday.

Mon-wed... Models begin to diverge in their solutions into early next
week regarding the passage of the next cool front to move through
the area. The ECMWF shows a stronger and faster progressing trough
through the central and eastern u.S. That weakens ridge across the
caribbean region and pushes front and showers associated with this
boundary through florida during the Monday Monday night timeframe.

However, the GFS delays this frontal passage until late week,
keeping greater moisture and rain chances north of the area mon-tue.

Due to these model differences and lower confidence in the forecast
this far out will only mention a slight chance for showers in the
forecast for Monday. Highs will remain above normal Monday in the
upper 70s to low 80s and then some slight cooling back to more
normal values expected once frontal boundary is able to move through
the region.

Aviation
Skies will be mainly clear withVFR and dry flying weather today.

Short range guidance indicates some marine stratocu from the gulf
may make it to klee vcnty after 06z.

Marine
Today... Nw winds to 15-20 knots near shore and 20 knots offshore
early this morning will decrease to 10-13 knots offshore into the
afternoon hours. Will continue advisory for the offshore waters into
late morning and headlines scec near shore.

Tonight... Westerly winds to around 15 knots NRN waters and 10 knots
south will allow seas to gradually subside to 2-3 ft near shore and
around 4 ft offshore.

Thu-sun... An offshore flow with wind speeds up to 10-15 knots, and
seas ranging from 1-3 feet will generally persist into late week. A
weak cold front is then forecast to move through the region Friday
night into Saturday, switching winds briefly out of the north and
building seas to 4-5 feet offshore. High pressure building offshore
north of the area will then allow winds to quickly veer onshore into
Sunday, with speeds forecast to remain less than 15 knots and seas
around 2-3 feet.

Fire weather
Today... Min rhs will drop to 25-30 percent across the interior this
afternoon with NW winds lowering to 5-10 mph through the afternoon.

Decreasing winds through the day and low erc values are expected so
no headlines will be needed. Thu fri... Southwest flow from the gulf
will moisten low levels some with min rhs around 50 percent.

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.
