Update
Tonight... Sea breeze boundaries were colliding near the lake/orange
county border, but we are not expecting any convection to develop
due to loss of daytime heating. Higher dew points were spreading
inland though, which will make for even more mild low temperatures.

Readings will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s areawide, with a few
mid 70s right along the barrier islands. Skies will become mostly
clear and winds will diminish, so there is a slight potential for
light fog to mix with smoke from smoldering brush fires and produce
low visibility locally. This is too isolated to carry in the
forecast, but will mention in the hazardous weather outlook.

Fri... Broad trough aloft will cover most of the country but heights
will rise over southeast sections, particularly florida. Low level
ridge will continue to extend from the atlantic across the peninsula
and provide a south/southeast gradient wind. The models show around
1.25 inches precipitable water early Fri then bring in some drying
from the east during the afternoon. Don't expect any showers on the
inland moving sea breeze boundary with this scenario.

The main story will continue to be well above normal high temps. The
models show a little more southeast wind component and quicker
inland movement of the sea breeze, but expect that interior sections
will still heat up into the mid 90s before slight relief comes from
the sea breeze.

Aviation
Some patchy MVFR visibility is possible early Saturday morning but
not confident enough to put into the tafs. Otherwise,VFR. Gusty
conditions a little over 20 knots will occur again for coastal sites
fri afternoon, especially kmlb to ksua.

Marine
Tonight-fri... Axis of high pressure ridge will extend from the
atlantic across the peninsula. This will continue a gradient wind
from the southeast/south. Speeds look mostly 10-15 knots with some
short fetch acceleration to around 20 knots along the coast fri
afternoon. Seas continuing 3-4 feet.

Mlb watches/warnings/advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

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.
