Discussion
Current-tonight... An approaching cold front was near ocala at this
hour, and will continue to track slowly south into the i-4 corridor
late in the night. The feature is expected to become near stationary
by sunrise Wed morning. Winds will become light to calm as the
pressure gradient relaxes. Locations north of the slowing front can
expect light nw-nne flow to develop toward Wednesday morning.

If some clearing can be achieved northern areas could see some
patchy fog development late or at least some low stratus clouds.

Conditions tonight will remain muggy with overnight low temperatures
in the u60s to l70s.

Wed-wed night...

the aforementioned cold front will become near (quasi) stationary
across the central fl peninsula in the vcnty of the i-4 corridor.

S SE light winds expected south of the boundary and NE E winds
forecast north of it. There may be some patchy fog around near north
of the boundary early in the morning if we have some clearing;
otherwise there may be some gloomy low stratus clouds around in the
rather muggy environment. Either way there will not be much cooler
air initially with this system as afternoon highs soar into the 80s
generally areawide. Any thicker lasting cloud cover or precip could
bring temps down a bit, especially northward. Suffice to say,
potential record highs may be within reach southward, once again.

Heat indices, again, could soar above 90f.

Increasing low level convergence and moisture pooling within the
frontal trough (pwats 2 inches i-4 corridor) will increase rain
chances in the afternoon and overnight... Daytime pops 50-60 percent
along and north of i-4, 30-40 pops, south east of the kissimmee
river... Increasing to 60-70pct areawide overnight. Best chance for
local heavy rain and thunder will be i-4 corridor and north.

Aviation
Cold front approaches NE fl tonight, with winds becoming light and
variable and sufficient moisture ahead of the boundary. Patchy fog
development with low ceilings possible in these conditions over the
northern interior (lee sfb mco ism) and expanding to kdab. Tomorrow,
bkn skies with increasing rain chances and boundary continues the
southward progress.

Marine
Cold front forecast to enter the move into our northern to central
marine segments overnight and into early Wed morning where it is
still expected to become near stationary. Winds will remain AOB 10
kts. Wind component to vary from se-ssw south of the front and will
transition to nerly behind it. Seas subside to 2-4 ft near shore and
4-5 ft offshore; except 3-4 ft offshore south of ft. Pierce
(offshore).

Coverage of showers is expected to be scattered with lightning
storms isolated and offshore.

Wed-wed night... The previously mentioned frontal boundary should lie
across the volusia coastal waters early in the morning where it is
expected to stall or become quasi-stationary. South of this boundary
winds should be sse ssw, while north of it winds will become ene.

The pressure gradient will remain weak with wind speeds generally
aob 10 kts. Winds shifting back to S SE overnight and increasing to
10-15kts as the front briefly retreats westward. Seas 3-4ft
nearshore and 4-5ft offshore. Thru the day and late evng, building
to 3-5ft nearshore and 4-6ft offshore overnight... Up to 7ft in the
gulf stream. Sct nmrs shras and a slgt chc of tsras.

Mlb watches warnings advisories
Fl... None.

Am... None.

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.
