Discussion
The sea breeze circulation that developed this afternoon has already
diminished and a synoptic S SW flow will develop overnight as ridge
pulls away from the area. Skies will be (or become) mostly clear
with little chance for fog as SW flow above the boundary layer
increases. Actually, the best chance for some light fog may be along
the treasure coast closer to the retreating ridge axis. Temperatures
should be a bit milder than previous nights with the coolest temps
in the upper 50s found over the south interior (okeechobee south
osceola interior st lucie).

Sunday... (modified) a fast moving cold front will reach the
northernmost CWA around noon-1pm, with what will likely be a narrow
and weakening band of showers along and immediately behind it.

Boundary is progged to lie roughly from sebastian inlet to basinger
by 7 pm. Best shower chances (30-40 pops) will be across the north-
central CWA during mid day. Maxes will range from near 75f across
the north to the lower 80s south of orlando.

Aviation
MainlyVFR. Increasing SW flow at 925mb should limit fog development
so only have MVFR vsbys at lee around sunrise. W SW flow Sunday
morning ahead of cold front then a northerly wind shift behind the
front will likely reach lee-dab-sfb 18z-20z, then shortly thereafter
at mco tix by 21z and mlb vrb by 23-24z. A band of shra should
accompany the front.

Marine
No significant changes to current coastal waters forecast.

Tonight-Sunday (previous)... Light southerly flow will become sw-wsw
late tonight, with the FROPA and attendant northerly wind shift
reaching the northern and central marine legs during the afternoon.

Wave model guidance continues to run a bit high compared to buoy
obs, especially the nwps. Used a slight reduction of the wnawave
which yielded seas around 3ft through early Sunday morning,
increasing to 3-4ft in the afternoon.

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.
