929 pm est Fri feb 24 2017

Areas of fog expected to develop overnight...

Update
Primary forecast concern for the overnight period is the evolution
of fog development across the area. Pencil-thin ridging over the
central peninsula is helping to "fill the void" left behind by
this weeks low. Near-surface flow has since decreased markedly,
and this, combined with a substantial amount of near-surface
moisture, will help promote fog development through the
remainder of the night. Indeed, visibility at several sites over
the last hour has been on a downward trend, and expect that to
continue into the morning hours.

Additionally, satellite and observations over the west
coast indicate a bank of low-clouds/stratus moving onshore and
slowly advecting inland. Expect the moisture to aid in the
development of fog to our west that should gradually advect in
toward lake/osceola counties.

Northern and interior sections are favored for the thickest fog
developing late tonight, though locally dense fog is anticipated
across along the space and treasure coasts as well.

Aviation
Expect a downtrend in visibility through the overnight, with MVFR
conditions settling in between 05-07z. Areas of fog anticipated to
develop during the pre-dawn hours, so have advertised tempo
ifr/lifr conditions at most TAF sites during the 09-13z timeframe.

Conditions will slowly improve after sunrise, returning toVFR
not long after 14/15z as fog dissipates.

Marine
Weak high pressure settling across florida and eastern gulf will
weaken northerly winds over the waters to 5-10 knots. Lingering
swells will keep seas up to 7 feet offshore, but local policy is
to not carry an advisory for seas when winds are 5- 10 knots.

Therefore will allow SCA to expire, but will keep small craft
exercise caution headlines for seas in overnight.

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.
