Update
Deeper moisture across the area today (1.73 inches of
precipitable water on the ktbw 00z sounding) allowed for
scattered to numerous thunderstorms to develop over the
interior and work west towards the coast through the late
afternoon hours. A few stray thunderstorms are gradually
dissipating and shifting west from the coast, mainly from
the tampa bay south, with some stratiform showers lingering
farther to the east over the interior. These remaining
showers and storms are forecast to clear out over the next
couple of hours, with rain free conditions expected over the
land areas overnight.

The forecast looks on track for deep moisture to bring
another round of thunderstorms on Saturday, initiating over
the interior during the early afternoon, and building west
towards the coast through the rest of the afternoon and
early evening under easterly flow. No major changes needed
for the evening update.

Aviation
Scattered thunderstorms are continuing to dissipate, but
could still cause brief flight category reductions over the
next couple of hours.VFR conditions will take hold after
around 02-03z. Another round of thunderstorms is expected to
develop over the interior during early afternoon on Saturday,
and will shift west towards the coast during the mid
afternoon to early evening hours.

Marine
High pressure centered north of florida and the eastern
gulf of mexico will gradually lift north through the
weekend, with light easterly winds continuing. Nocturnal
surges will bring wind speeds up to around 15 knots each
night, with seas of no more than 3 feet. Light winds will
continue into the first half of next week as maria moves
north of the bahamas, staying well away from florida.

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.
