1040 pm est Mon jan 22 2018

Discussion
Large scale ascent will support a large area of rain to spread east
from the gulf of mexico well ahead of a cold front. Highest rain
chances will be orlando CAPE northward overnight. The prospect for
thunder is low - focused on the gulf coast - but have maintained it
in the forecast with the highest pops across the north.

Isolated scattered showers will push east across southern counties
in an environment of top-down moistening. Mild low temps in the mid
60s expected.

Tuesday... (modified) warm S SW flow will continue over much of
central fl during the morning as the cold front slowly works its way
into central fl during the afternoon. Despite mcldy skies, the
strong warm air advection will push MAX temps into the m u70s... Near
80f south of CAPE canaveral and the orlando metroplex. The low lvl
instability will combine with pwat values btwn 1.50"-1.75" areawide
to produce isold thunder focused from southern brevard southward in
the aftn.

Aviation
Vfr CIGS should prevail most of the night as moistening from the top-
down occurs and isold-sct shra push E NE across the terminals.

Coverage of showers will be higher across the northern terminals and
MVFR CIGS will be possible toward morning there. On tue... Sct-nmrs
shra should be ongoing with s-sw sfc flow 5-10 knots. The best
chance for thunder should be mlb-sua during the afternoon where
enough sfc heating may occur ahead of actual frontal boundary.

Marine
No significant changes to current coastal waters forecast.

Tonight... High pres ridge centered just SW of bermuda will drift
seaward in advance of a cold front currently pushing acrs the lwr ms
valley. Storm system over the central CONUS will crank the frontal
boundary into the ERN gomex NE fl by daybreak tue, then into the
volusia waters by sunset, then into the fl straits Tue night.

Sfc bndry lyr winds will gradually veer from a gentle to moderate
e SE breeze this evng, to due south by daybreak tue. Seas 3-4ft.

Shras likely slgt chc tsras over the volusia waters, chc of shras
south of brevard-volusia line.

Tue... Winds diminishing to a light to gentle breeze with the
approach of the frontal boundary, holding S SW ahead of it, veering
to W NW behind it. Seas 3-4ft, except 2-3ft over the nearshore
treasure coast. Shras likely slgt chc tsras thru midday, diminishing
to a chc slgt chc of shras behind the fropa.

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.
