Discussion
Today and tonight... The start of the work week will be under
mostly cloudy skies that will linger this morning and will lift up
through the afternoon. This is due to the passage of a cold front
across east central fl late last night and early this morning.

Pwat values will drop below half an inch today with no rain
chances for east central fl through tonight. Winds will increase
a few miles through the day over land, ranging 10 to 15 mph, from
the west to northwest. MAX temperatures today will be 10 to 15
degrees cooler than yesterday, ranging from 60 across the northern
areas north of i-4 to near 70 along the treasure coast. To our
north, the low that pushed the cold front over the fl peninsula last
night, will stretch towards the northeast and another area of low
pressure will start to develop off the coast of the carolinas
tonight. At the same time, an area of high pressure moving east
will reach the northwest gulf of mexico and will increase the
pressure gradient across the eastern gulf and the florida
peninsula. For the second night post front, advection of cooler
and drier air will allow for minimal temperatures to be 10 to 15
degrees cooler than this morning, with lows dropping to near 40
across the northern counties and the interior areas and mid 40s
along the space and treasure coast.

Tue-thu... Advection of cooler air south into the region will
continue Tue as NW flow around approaching high pressure area will
bring clearing conditions with some higher clouds. A few showers
will be possible over the atlantic waters east of the area associated
with departing low pressure. Slow moving high pressure is expected
to be centered over N fl sga by Wed afternoon. This will bring a
period of fair weather at midweek with a warming trend beginning
wed after cool morning lows in the m-u 30s well inland and l-m40s
at the coast.

Med range guid suggests the development of a weak coastal trough
early Thu with feature responsible for some lower cloudiness and
perhaps a coastal shower early Thu and into the aftn. Moisture is
showing a marked increase areawide during Thu as an upstream
disturbance begins to approach the region coupled with more
robust sly component winds. Pops have been capped at sct coverage
by late Thu as next system approaches the area.

Extended... Notable pattern chg advertised late in the week over
the east by GFS and euro guidance as a strong shortwave moving
across the great plains pinches off as a closed low over the lower
ms valley and quickly transits toward the SE states during fri
into Fri night. Storms will be carried for the local area during
at least two periods Fri fri night with an appreciable warm
sector and strong wind fields accompanying approach of the potent
feature. Forecasts are likely to adjust to timing of system as the
mid to late week approaches. Post frontal cooling will occur
behind departing feature early next week.

Aviation
Low clouds this morning will linger after a few hour after
sunrise, producing MVFR CIGS for most of the terminals. These are
expected to lift after mid-morning, returningVFR conditions for
the rest of the afternoon and evening. Winds will be west to
northwest at around 10 knots and increasing 10 to 15 knots later
this morning.

Marine
Today-tonight... Winds and seas across the east central atlantic
waters will start this morning high (near 20 knots) and will
relax a few knots this afternoon. However, as the pressure
gradient increases tonight (thanks to a high pressure to our west
and low to our northeast), winds and seas will increase later
tonight to above advisory criteria. We decided to keep the small
craft advisory in effect for the offshore waters today as winds
are expected to only drop below threshold a few knots and for a
few hours. With the increase expected tonight, the nearshore
waters will possibly be added to the advisory.

Tue-thu... Continued headlines for winds and seas during Tue will
be associated with departing low pressure over the WRN atlc and
robust n-nw winds. High pressure approaching the region into wed
will allow for winds and seas to diminish at midweek briefly before
onset of next approaching system over the lwr ms valley by fri.

Extended... Increasing winds Fri and persisting with passage of low
pressure front late Fri or early Sat will bring locally strong
wind gusts associated with storms, then headlines for post
frontal winds seas for a portion of the upcoming weekend.

Fire weather
No critical values of relative humidities are expected for east
central fl in 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.
