Update
High risk of rip currents at east central florida beaches...

low level moisture levels have gradually increased over the past 24
hours with precipitable water values at CAPE canaveral afs rising to
1.78 inches this morning from around 1.6 inches yesterday morning.

Water vapor imagery and rap upper level height analysis depicts an
upper level low across apalachee bay and the northeast gulf of
mexico with a 50-55 knot jet at 250 mbs across central fl. GFS progs
also indicate increasing upper level divergence across the SRN half
of the forecast area this afternoon. The upper divergence paired
with daytime heating, the inland moving east coast sea breeze and
sufficient moisture below 700 mbs should allow for scattered showers
and a slight chance for an afternoon lightning storm generally south
of a lake kissimmee to vero beach line. Morning forecast update will
add some low thunder chances this afternoon across SRN sections.

Highs will be warm reaching the 91-94 degrees for the interior
around 90 along the east coast. Long period northeast swells from
maria will contribute to a high risk of rip currents at east central
fl beaches today.

Aviation
Scattered shra isold tsra coverage should develop and move gradually
inland along the east coast sea breeze boundary from kvrb-ksua from
mid day into the afternoon hours. This convection should be mainly
west of SRN cstl cstl terminals by 20-21z time frame.VFR conds
expected for NRN terminals north of kmco-ktix into tonight.

Marine
Ne swells holding around 7 ft at buoy 41009 and 6 ft at buoy 41114
this morning. Will continue SCA for seas all marine zones. Swells
will gradually lessen tonight into Wed with improving boating conds
wed afternoon into Thu expected as swells continue to subside.

cocoa, above lake harney near geneva, near sanford, near deland and
at astor.

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.
