Short range models continue to indicate an inverted trough
developing near the east coast into late afternoon and evening with
low level ese flow backing into to the NE toward sunset. At the
mid upper levels westerly flow will increase mid and high cloudiness
from the gulf into late afternoon and evening. Scattered showers
will continue to move onshore across volusia county into this
afternoon with isolated showers possible generally north of a vero
beach to leesburg line. Highs will reach the lower 80s from leesburg
to daytona beach and in the mid 80s from orlando and titusville
southward across SRN portions of east central florida. A moderate
risk for rip currents continues today at east central fl beaches.

small rain chances, focused mainly between tix-dab. Light e-se flow
10 knots or less along the coast with a NE flow developing at dab
this aftn. A light N NW flow will overspread all terminals tonight.

Marine No significant changes expected with late morning
update. Ese winds to 10-15 knots decreasing into late afternoon as
inverted coastal trough develops. Previous... Today tonight... A weak
coastal trough is developing from the CAPE northward this morning
and this will weaken the pressure gradient across the local atlc

coastal trough. Seas 5 feet early this morning offshore will subside
to 4 feet by afternoon and 3 feet nearshore. The north to northeast
wind should spread southward down the coast tonight with speeds 5-10
knots, except 10-12 knots across the far northern waters.

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.
