Update
Mid upper level impulse is moving northwest across eastern gulf
of mexico this morning with associated area of clouds and some
light showers sprinkles. This impulse will continue to move
northwest and eventually out of our forecast area this afternoon.

In the meantime have updated grids zone forecast to include more
clouds and a slight chance of showers sprinkles over coastal
waters and to land areas close to the coast from around tampa bay
southward this morning. Once this moves by expect to see another
partly to mostly sunny and warm day with breezy southeast winds
keeping the sea breeze pinned along the coast north of tampa bay
and likely not developing at all further south. Temperatures will
warm into the 80s, possibly 90 in a few locations with a couple of
more record highs possible.

Aviation
SomeVFR ceilings and a few light showers sprinkles will be
possible early this morning then southeast winds will increase
to 10 to 15 knots with some gusts to 25 knots late this morning
and afternoon.

Marine
High pressure will continue to ridge west from the atlantic ocean
with southeast winds at around 15 knots or less across the waters.

Sea breeze will struggle to develop the next couple of afternoons
with the only real chance being along the nature coast. Present
marine forecast looks ok with no major changes planned for late
morning forecast.

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.
