Discussion
Current-overnight... Should continue to see a diminishing trend for
showers from kmlb south through the night with greatest chances
continuing along the treasure coast. The 00z kxmr sounding has come
in with a pwat of 1.07 inches which represents a drying trend,
especially northward. Surface high pressure along the eastern
seaboard will drift into the western atlc overnight with a gradual
lessening of the pressure gradient as winds continue to slowly
decrease. Wind speeds will remain strongest along the east coast
with directional component across ecfl ranging from ene to ne.

Winds above the surface will also remain a bit elevated continuing
to keep the airmass mixed enough to keep overnight lows generally in
the 60s. Cooler locations across the interior may realize u50s.

A high surf advisory remains in effect until 5am Fri morning for
large breaking waves and possible minor erosion along the coast.

Fri... Surface high pressure continues to drift further into the
western atlc with easterly winds and pgrad tight enough to keep near
breezy/breezy winds in the forecast. Generally considerable
cloudiness with the deeper onshore flow/marine influence and a few
low-topped showers over the coastal waters occasionally moving onto
the coast and further inland. Will keep pops at 20 percent or less
across the coverage warning area. Highs will average in the 70s to
around 80 degrees (interior).

Aviation Few showers mainly kmlb southward overnight. There will
be periods of fl035-045, especially kmlb southward. Gusty erly winds
on fri. Only a small threat for a few light showers/sprinkles on fri.

Marine Overnight-fri... High pressure along the eastern seaboard
and north fl will slowly drift into the western atlc over the next
24hrs. Hazardous small craft boating conditions (winds/seas)
continue for all marine legs through the period. Gusty ene/e winds
20-25 kts. Seas building 7-9ft nearshore and 8-11ft offshore,
subsiding to 6-8ft nearshore and 8-10ft offshore by late Fri aftn.

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.
