Discussion
Today and tonight... A weak sfc trough over the gulf stream and fl
straits, is helping to produce isolated showers. Isold sct showers
associated with the feature will affect the coast and to some
degree inland locations. Spotty measurable rain is mainly expected
along the coastal zones into the afternoon. Breezy afternoon
conditions ascd with high pressure building swd over the mid atlc
toward the state will keep temperatures in check with partly
cloudy skies and highs in the l-m80s.

A mentionable rain chc continues ESP along the coast tonight with
loss of onshore strength of winds during tonight. Expect lows
tonight in the l-m70s.

Fri-sat... Surface high pressure remains entrenched over the eastern
conus, keeping onshore flow stout. Available moisture remains
confined to the low-levels as a building ridge aloft leads to
subsidence and drying through the remainder of the column. Guidance
indicates higher pwats across central and southern areas, enough to
warrant chance pops (30-40%) for brevard county and the treasure
coast with slight chance for showers elsewhere. Given the limited
moisture depth and strong maritime influence, expect showers to
remain low-topped and quick-moving. Beach conditions will remain
hazardous for swimmers with strong rip currents and rough surf
expected.

Sun-wed... Mean-layer ridging shifts into the atlantic as a series of
shortwaves carve out a large scale trough over the central and
eastern conus. At the same time, a surface low is forecast to
develop near louisiana and move northeast, dragging a surface front
across the deep south and eventually through the area either late
Tuesday (gfs) or Wednesday (ecmwf). Low-level winds will veer more
southerly into early next week, leading to an increase in available
moisture and instability that will portend higher pops and a renewed
chance for isolated thunderstorms. Temps look to climb several
degrees above normal before more pleasant conditions follow behind
the front.

Aviation
MainlyVFR conds wl be expected with locally reduced cig and vsby
conditions in heavier showers bringing MVFR cig vsby with sfc wnd
g25-30kt, ESP along the coastal routes this morning into
afternoon. Outside of showers primarilyVFR conds wl exist with
cigs and cloud bases abv fl035.

Marine
Today and tonight... Winds and a combination of fully arisen seas
will keep the present advisory in place areawide into late week.

Winds at least 15 to 20 kt and sig wave heights of 7 to 9 ft today
will show slight reduction, especially over the treasure coast
waters and outside of the gulf stream within 15 to 20 miles of the
coast. Rough surf will be present along with a rip current threat.

Thu-mon... Persistent period of stout onshore flow continues through
the weekend, leading to hazardous conditions for small craft
operation. Winds 15-20 knots nearshore and around 20 knots offshore
with seas 5-7 feet common, occasionally up to 8 feet offshore.

Conditions remain poor into early next week as low-level flow veers
to the southeast.Basin.

Hydrology
The middle and upper saint johns river basin remains in flood with
levels expected to remain steady and, or experience only a slow
decrease over the next several days due to recent rains near the

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.
