Update
Today-tonight... Stubborn mid upper level trough over the eastern
gulf of mexico combined with rather strong atlantic high pressure
ridge is continuing to generate a deep layer of southerly winds.

Water vapor imagery clearly shows a moisture plume from the
caribbean into florida. We started out with widespread showers
across the area early this morning, but the models shift the heavier
rain west of the area this afternoon. Extensive cloud cover will
inhibit surface heating, but some regeneration of convection is
likely this afternoon due to the very moist air mass in place. The
hrrr shows this activity mainly affecting the interior. The clouds
and showers will limit high temperatures today to the upper 70s to
around 80 degrees. Haven't made much change to the previous
forecast for today. Won't change tonight's forecast yet, but high
moisture, breezy onshore flow and still favorable conditions aloft
should allow for regeneration of showers along the treasure space
coast with pops in the likely range.

Aviation Widespread light-moderate rain with MVFR ceilings will
only slowly shift inland through this afternoon, but overcast skies
will persist across the entire area with local MVFR occurring. The
chance for downpours with ifr will mainly be at the interior
terminals this afternoon. There is a chance for downpours tonight
again along the coast, especially kmlb-ksua.

Marine
Today tonight... Even though the bulk of showers was occurring over
the mainland, conditions for small craft operation are poor due to
breezy southeast winds on the east side of an inverted trough that
was shifting slowly inland. Marine observations and surface
analysis show about 15 knot winds nearshore and 15-20 knots offshore
with seas up to 6 feet. Will continue with exercise caution
statements offshore, and add the southern nearshore zone.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

Short term aviation... Lascody
impact wx... Spratt

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.
