Update
Temperatures will remain above normal this week...

today... Stout deep layer high pressure centered offshore the
eastern seaboard is producing a low-mid level east to southeast wind
flow. This will provide a little moisture recovery, though the main
moistening is shown across the southern peninsula. Some onshore
moving showers were occurring there in the freshening onshore flow.

The hrrr model indicates the showers will stay just to our south,
though would expect a little more cloudiness to occur there.

Otherwise, skies will be mostly-partly sunny. High temps will be a
few degrees lower than recent days due to the increased marine
influence; but still above normal in lower-mid 80s inland and around
80 along the coast. Little change to previous forecast except to
mention breezy winds on the treasure coast.

Aviation
MostlyVFR. Breezy east southeast winds to around 20 knots indicated
mainly kvrb-ksua through this afternoon. There wasn't much fog in
the north this morning, and with little change or even a slight
increase in low level winds tonight, don't think klee-ksfb will
be impacted by lifr as depicted by MOS guidance.

Marine
Today-tonight... Quite strong high pressure over the atlantic with an
axis extending into the southeast u.S. Is producing a freshening
east-southeast low level wind flow. Speeds look a few knots higher
than currently forecast in the central waters as buoy 41009 has had
a pretty steady 14 knot flow the last several hours with 4-5 second
wave periods.

Exercise caution statement offshore in the south may need to be
extended to the coast as metars were showing breezy winds 15-20
knots. No headlines needed yet elsewhere, but overall conditions
for small craft operation are worsening due to gradually increasing
wind waves.

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.
