Discussion
High rain chances will continue into early next week...

tonight-Sunday... Feed of deep moisture will continue to stream
westward along the stalled diffuse front, which will begin to lift
into north florida late tomorrow. Convergent warm frontogenetic
upglide will lead to widespread clouds and increasing rain chances
with 40-50 percent overnight and about 70 percent on Sunday, with a
small chance for TS continuing. Overnight mins in the u60s inland
and l70s along the coast. Sunday's maxes in the u70s along the coast
and near 80f inland.

Sunday night-Monday night... Increasing fetch of easterlies will
provide an onshore flow as high pressure transitions seaward off the
u.S. Mid-atlantic seaboard and new england coast. Deepening moisture
will gather around the southern periphery funneling across the
bahamas toward the fl coast. Enhanced wind flow will keep local
conditions on the breezy side sun, particularly along the coast.

Meanwhile, a mid-level cut-off will wobble and roll into the deep
south to assist with a developing sfc low in the same general
vicinity. The response will be to maintain the enhanced wind flow
which will progressively veer se-s into mon. Rain chances will
increase through Monday. MAX temps in the u70s-m80s with overnight
min temps m60s inland around 70 at the coast.

Tuesday-Saturday... Mid-level cut-off fills and gets kicked NE by the
next short wave trough. Together, this will help move along the sfc
low toward the mid-atlantic and drive a cold front south down the
peninsula Tue reaching the straits by Wed morn. Showers and some
storms ahead of the front, but then winds will turn wnw behind the
boundary as drying ensues curbing rain chances. MAX temps will
easily find the l80s in the drier air and increasing Sun angles. Min
temps will generally be in the 60s, cooler inland and north. This
places temps in about the normal range. Late in the week, long range
models suggest another disturbance may have bearing. Will return a
modest mention of showers, but allowing for a measure of uncertainty
relative to timing and extent.

Aviation MainlyVFR conditions with bkn035-045 ceilings will
prevail for the remainder of the afternoon and evening for all
terminals. Showers will also continue throughout this evening,
bringing occasional MVFR bkn025-030 ceilings. Overnight expecting
MVFR ceilings to develop across the interior terminals, kdab and
ktix. Have also included tempo groups at these terminals for a
possible bkn015 ceilings sometime from 22 08z-12z. From kmlb-ksua,
there will likely be borderline MVFR ceiling conditions overnight,
thus have included bkn030 after 22 03z. Expecting gusty conditions
to develop again across most the area after 22 14z with gusts around
20 knots.

Marine Tonight-Sunday... A fresh, long fetch onshore breeze of
20-23kt continues the next 24 hours, veering from east tonight to
ese Sunday. Seas will build as high as 6-7ft range near shore and
9ft well offshore, with a SCA continuing.

Sunday night-Monday night... Poor to hazardous boating conditions
continue as a moderate to fresh SE breeze overnight veers to sse-s
Monday. Increased chances for showers with isolated thunderstorms
through the period. SCA conditions early with 5-7ft near shore and
up to 8ft well offshore Sunday night will slowly ease some Monday
night.

Tuesday-Thursday... Despite an expected frontal passage on Tuesday
decreasing winds become sw-w-wnw as seas eventually relax below
advisory levels. Seas 4-5 ft nearshore subsiding to 3-4ft. Offshore,
seas will be a bit slower to dampen from 6-8ft Tuesday to 4-5ft wed
4ft Thursday.

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.
