Marine Weather and Tides
Cocoa Beach, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Update
Today... Mid upper level trough over the eastern gulf is nudging
northwest and weakening but moisture plume from cuba to the florida
peninsula is being maintained. Like the last couple days, we're
starting out with extensive clouds showers, which will limit daytime
heating once again. Recent hrrr model runs show large areas of rain
with embedded showers lingering well into the afternoon, especially
over the interior. Breezy low level southeast flow may provide
enough convergence for isolated lightning storms with locally heavy
rainfall. Overall, little change planned to current forecast.

Aviation
Another day with extensive cloudiness and large areas of light rain.

Embedded showers with heavy rain will also occur along with a slight
chance for lightning strikes. We should see a slow transition of
this MVFR activity from the coast to interior sites through late
afternoon. Brief local ifr is also possible. Early morning
stability due to rainfall is inhibiting breezy southeast winds from
kicking in kmlb-ksua. A period of 15-20 knot winds may still occur
there this afternoon.

Marine
Today tonight... Pressure gradient between atlantic ridge and weak
surface trough in the gulf of mexico is supporting 15-20 knot
southeast winds and 6 foot seas offshore. Little change to previous
forecast.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
