Northeast wind surge behind frontal boundary will produce
hazardous boating conditions through Friday...

High rip current threat and high surf at the atlantic beaches
today...

Breezy to windy conditions developing...

Discussion
Latest sfc analysis shows the cold front pushing into the treasure
coast/lake-o region as of mid mrng, driven by a very strong high
pres ridge building off the mid atlc coast. Very tight pgrad in the
wake of the front will generates a brisk easterly flow acrs central
fl today... LCL wind profilers showing a solid 20-25kt easterly flow
thru the h100-h85 lyr. Sfc obs showing sustained winds arnd 15mph as
of mid/late mrng... Should only increase thru the aftn as sfc heating
destabilizes the h100-h85 lyr.

Shras/tsras, some quite strong, have been largely confined to the
relatively warm atlc waters, though a few managed to work their way
onshore volusia/brevard counties. Storms have been largely driven by
a LCL knuckle in the h85-h30 vort field, as well as very cold mid
lvl temps (h50 readings on the order of -16c). Expect precip to work
its way inland south of the i-4 corridor as diurnal sfc heating
destabilize the h100-h85 lyr... Mid lvl lapse rates btwn 6.5-7.0c/km
will require tsras in the fcst.

Lake wind advisory set to go into effect at midday. Along the coast,
the brisk onshore flow will generate rough/high surf by early
aftn... Rip current threat will be high. Mrng fcst package looks
good.

Marine
Rapidly deteriorating conditions behind a cold front pushing acrs
the treasure coast/lake-o region. Seas at buoy 41116 increased from
4ft to 7ft btwn daybreak and mid mrng, while CAPE tower network was
measuring sfc wind gusts arnd g25kts. Rap analysis showing sustained
sfc winds btwn 20-25kts extending clear up to the nc outer banks,
concurrent with a very tight sfc pgrad btwn CAPE canaveral and cape
hatteras. Ene winds btwn 20-25kts will build into the treasure coast
waters as the front pushes into south fl. Seas building to 6-8ft
nearshore and 8-11 offshore by lat aftn. SCA remains in place for
all coastal waters.

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.
