Update
Mid upper level shortwave trough across SRN ms al will slide
eastward across north fl late tonight. Extensive mid and upper level
cloudiness will continue to stream across east central fl ahead of
the approaching mid level wave. Some non precip returns continue
across the SRN counties with some sprinkles approaching the west
coast. Will continue current forecast with slight chance for
sprinkles across the central NRN zones through the night and then
will introduce a low shower chance across far NRN lake and far nrn
volusia. Both the 18z GFS nam indicating some light QPF as deepening
mid level moisture and mid level vorticity provide sufficient
environment for some late night shower development, but still looks
to be on the light side. Lows will remain mild with the considerable
cloud cover ranging from the lower 50s north to mid 50s central and
south but warmer along the martin county coast, in the upper 50s.

Aviation
Mid level cloudiness will remain generally above 10 kft with mainly
vfr conds outside of low probability for fog development across the
interior late tonight and early Sunday. A few late night light
showers may track north of a klee-kdab line with the approach of the
short wave trough tracking across N fl.

Marine
Tonight... Ne E winds generally 10 knots or less with seas 2-4 ft.

Current forecast for the overnight on track.

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.
