Discussion
Today and tonight... A developing low along the carolina coast has
brought a late season shot of pleasantly cool air into the area
until midweek. Despite morning lows in the u50s to l60s
temperatures will rebound under sunny skies into the l-m80s.

Westerly winds around 10 mph will be light enough for a coastal
wind disruption as an east coast breeze tries to develop past mid
afternoon and make some progress past inland past i-95 by dusk.

Tonight, another cool night with the lowest temps of the week as
clear skies and light to calm winds allow temps to fall into the
m50s to near 60 degrees.

Wednesday-Friday... A generally warm and dry period with high
pressure ridge over the region and limited moisture. Front
approaching from the north weakens with a ridge aloft building in
during the late week. Temperatures will be on a slow warming trend
into late week as this occurs. Gradient will be light enough for
east coast sea breeze to form each afternoon and hold maxes near
the coast a little lower versus interior. High temps will climb
from highs in the mid/upper 80s inland low/mid 80s coast on
Wednesday to the low/mid 90s inland and mid/upper 80s coast by
Friday. Mins also follow suit in the warming from the low/mid 60s
wed night with many locations remaining in the lower 70s by
Friday night.

Weekend... Above normal temperatures will continue over the weekend.

Local area will be in southeast flow around the atlantic ridge. The
25/00z run of the GFS is again indicating an area of enhanced
moisture moving across the peninsula during Saturday in the
southeasterly flow. Given the moisture increase and temps climbing
into the lower 90s have included a slight chance for late afternoon
showers/storms over the far interior sections. Drier air works back
in for Sunday so kept forecast dry. High temps both days range from
mid 80s immediate coast to lower 90s well inland. Low temps also
above normal in upper 60s/lower 70s.

Early next week... Frontal system approaching will increase moisture
and bring at least a low prospect for showers/storms into the area.

Latest run of GFS is bringing the system into the area daytime
Monday with lingering moisture band across the central peninsula on
tues, which is faster and farther south than the ecmwf. For now, am
indicating lower pops than guidance with a slight shower/storm
chance in mon-tue time frame. These values can be refined pending
consensus of later model runs.

Aviation
Sct-bkn lower clouds with bases nr fl030-040ft will migrate swd
fm osceola and brevard co's swd through daybreak.VFR conditions
with no obstruction to sky or vsby can be expected by daybreak and
over the next 24h as a much dryer airmass builds over the region.

Marine Today and tonight... Westerly winds ascd with departing
gale along the mid-atlc seaboard will require continuation of the
caution statement beyond 20nm into the afternoon. A light onshore
breeze will be possible at the immediate coast past mid-afternoon.

Winds and seas wl diminish into tonight with reduced gradient
flow.

Wed-sat... Persistent atlantic ridge axis in the vicinity of the
central florida peninsula will keep local waters in south/southeast
flow at or below 15 knots through Friday... Then 15 kt offshore on
sat. Atlantic sea breeze circulation forming each afternoon will
provide a little local enhancement near the coast. Seas mainly 2-3
ft near shore and up to 4 ft offshore through fri... Building to 3-4
feet near shore waters and up to 5 feet offshore sat.

Fire weather
Ambient dry conditions will be aggravated by a bout of low rh as
rh values fall into the m30s for 2 to 3 hours this afternoon.

Overall environmental conditions when considering wind and fuel
moisture do not require issuance of warnings, however a fire
weather sensitive day is advertised especially for the low rh
from noon through 6 pm.

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.
