Discussion
Overnight... Moisture gradient continues across area with higher
values to the north. Onshore flow supporting few showers moving into
volusia county but most significant activity over jax forecast area.

Short range meso models indicate additional showers may move into
volusia and even northern brevard county overnight as measure of
decoupling begins and frictional convergence is enhanced. Current
forecast depicts this well with only minor changes expected.

Forecast temps on track.

across the treasure coast and up to around 1.90 inches for volusia
county. As such, have kept higher pops (50pct) north of i-4 tapering
down to 20pct or less south of kmco. An isolated lightning threat
will be forecast for the i-4 corridor in the afternoon. Temperatures
remain warm aloft with dynamic support weak as deep layer high
pressure ridging continues over the region.

Aviation MainlyVFR overnight with vicinity showers over dab and
tix with continued onshore flow. MainlyVFR continues Friday with
shower activity mostly over northern locations and along coast.

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.
