Discussion
Storm system centered over the mid atlc has pulled a cold front into
the fl straits NRN bahamas. Brisk W NW flow on the backside of the
h100-h70 frontal trof will tap a dry stable post frontal airmass...

mrng raobs measured pwat values btwn 0.75"-1.00", a sharp h85-h70
subsidence inversion, and avg h85-h50 dewpoint depressions btwn 25-
30c. Rap40 analysis shows sinking mid lvl omega upr lvl divergence
values, and h85-h70 lapse rates decreasing from arnd 5.0c km over
the treasure coast lake-o region to arnd 2.5c km north of the i-4
corridor.

Weak mid lvl shortwave over the panhandle will rotate down the
backside of the frontal trof into central fl. Ahead of the
shortwave, a band of enhanced h100-h70 rh btwn 50-60pct will allow
skies to become partly cloudy this aftn, but the overall airmass is
too dry stable to support precip. Deep wrly flow will preclude the
formation of the east coast sea breeze, while near full Sun thru
early aftn will allow temps to warm into the l m80s.

Aviation Thru 26 12z.

Sfc winds: thru 26 00z... W SW 8-12kts. Btwn 26 00z-26 03z... Bcmg
w NW 3-6kts.

Vsbys wx cigs:VFR all sites.

Marine
Gentle to moderate W NW breeze thru midday, diminishing to a light
to gentle S SW breeze in the aftn as a storm system over the mid
atlc lifts up the eastern seaboard and loosens the LCL pressure
gradient. Seas 2-4ft nearshore and 3-5ft offshore mainly in a 3-4ft
easterly swell.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

Short term aviation... Bragaw
long term impact wx... Lascody

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
