Update
Morning water vapor satellite imagery is showing
comparatively dry conditions over the central and southern
portions of the florida peninsula under a mid level ridge
centered just east of the region, while much higher moisture
is visible over the panhandle associated with thunderstorms
along a weak front. This front is not forecast to be able to
displace the ridge across the florida peninsula, and
generally rain free conditions are expected once again this
afternoon. The main forecast concern will be warm
temperatures, with highs expected to top out in the mid 90s
inland and around 90 near the coast.

The forecast looks on track overall, and no major changes
are needed for the evening update.

Aviation
A few lingering patches of fog will burn off by around 13z.

Vfr conditions will then hold through the rest of the day
under rain free conditions and northerly to westerly winds.

Marine
Surface high pressure will continue to ridge from the
atlantic into the eastern gulf of mexico through the next
few days, with light and rather variable winds turning
onshore each afternoon with the sea breeze. Winds and seas
will remain below headline criteria.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
