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.

Summer rainy season takes a break today and tomorrow...

Update
High pressure and drier air nosing in from the western atlantic
combined with building heights aloft will lead to abnormally low
coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms over the eastern
half of the peninsula today. Latest rap analysis overlaid with
high-resolution GOES satellite imagery shows the western edge of
the drier low-level air about 100-150 miles east of our
coastline. Before that advects in this afternoon, isolated showers
over the atlantic have a chance of producing a brief period of
rain along the coast south of the cape. Otherwise, any chance for
rain will shift toward the interior as the atlantic sea breeze
develops and moves quickly inland with the prevailing onshore
flow.

With that said, will carry small chances for brief showers this
morning south of the CAPE before shifting isolated coverage (and a
small chance for thunder) to the interior from early to mid
afternoon. Expect showers to shift west of the forecast area
before sunset leaving most areas dry this evening.

Aviation
Vfr given prevailing onshore flow and drier air moving in off the
atlantic. Coverage of afternoon showers and thunderstorms will be
below normal today, with any prospect for a brief shra along the
coast this morning (south of kmlb) transitioning to inland areas
from early to mid afternoon. Given precip chances stand at 20% or
less today, opted not to include vcsh (let alone vcts) in the
latest TAF package.

Marine
Today and tonight... Slight increase in onshore flow today as high
pressure noses in from the western atlantic. Northeast to east
winds 5-10 knots transitioning to east 10-13 knots this afternoon
as the sea breeze develops and quickly pushes inland. Seas 1-2
feet this morning, up to 3 feet offshore later today and tonight.

Hydrology
Heavy rainfall last week has caused a slow and steady rise of the
saint johns river. The river remains at action stage above lake
harney near geneva and is forecast to continue a slow rise through
midweek while remaining below flood stage.

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.
