Discussion
Strong southerly flow out ahead of the band of showers and
embedded thunderstorms has transported abundant moisture northward
overnight with dew points now in the mid to upper 60s across the
region. We've seen gusts to around 40 knots near the coast in the
southerly synoptic flow and wouldn't take much for the convection
to tap the 50 to 60 knot winds a few thousand feet off the surface
so an isolated severe wind gusts is possible in some of the
stronger storms early this morning. Could also see a quick spinup
leading to an isolated waterspout tornado early this morning as
the band moves through. Cold front will exit the region by early
afternoon taking most of the convection with it as west to
northwest flow ushers in our next shot of cool dry air for Friday
and Saturday.

Over the weekend and into early next week broad mid upper level
troughing will remain across the eastern two-thirds of the conus
with a series of shortwaves moving through it. Saturday night
into Monday shortwave energy will be moving across the gulf of
mexico and into florida, but the timing, location, and strength of
the wave continues to vary highly between the models which leads
to a continued rather low confidence in the forecast during this
timeframe. Latest indications are that the best chance of
rain showers will be across south florida, but a slight shift in
location or strength of the shortwave could bring a much higher
rain chances to the entire region. For now have gone with a blend
of the guidance and indicated slight chance to chance pops from
around the interstate 4 corridor southward Saturday night and
Sunday and then chance pops across pretty much the entire region
for Sunday night and Monday. By Tuesday the shortwave should be
off to the east of the area with weak surface high pressure
building in bringing a return to fair dry weather before the next
shortwave and associated cold front approaches from the northwest
during midweek bringing another chance of showers.

Aviation
MVFR local ifr conditions are expected this morning as a
band of showers and embedded thunderstorms moves across the
region this morning.VFR conditions should return from
northwest to southeast this afternoon and prevail through
tonight. Gusty southerly winds ahead of the convection will
diminish and shift to west northwest as the cold front
sweeps across the region today.

Marine
South to southwest winds in the 20 to 25 knot range with gusts to
gale force will shift to northwest and diminish later this morning
as the cold front crossed the waters. In the wake of the front
high pressure will build in north of the waters during Friday and
Saturday with winds and seas subsiding. An area of low pressure
may bring another round of showers into the central and southern
gulf waters during Sunday and Monday.

Fire weather
Drier air will move into the region in the wake of the cold front
and support a few hours of humidity values below 35 percent over
interior locations both Friday and Saturday afternoon. However,
low erc values and lighter winds will preclude red flag
conditions.

Fog potential... No significant fog is expected during the next
few days.

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.
