Update
Tonight... Very little change as rather strong high pressure ridge
centered west of bermuda is producing a moderate low level easterly
breeze. The GFS shows an area of light precip amounts moving into
the coast after midnight. Satellite is showing a north south
oriented band of clouds just east of the coastal waters, so the
current small coastal pop looks good. Precipitable water remains
around 1 inch and there is still a rather strong low level capping
inversion, so rainfall amounts should be less than a tenth of an
inch.

The onshore flow will keep low temps well above normal and there is
a chance for record warm lows (again) mainly at the coastal sites.

Little change to the previous forecast.

Aviation Some brief MVFR possible along the coast tonight as
clouds and isolated showers move ashore from the atlantic. Most of
the area will have a chance for MVFR tomorrow as slightly higher low
level moisture moves across the central peninsula.

Marine
Tonight-Friday... Overall, easterly flow 10-15 knots is forecast. A
weak inverted trough moving into the coast late tonight might pick
up winds to around 15 knots behind it. In any event, a combination
of short period wind waves and swell will keep seas up to 6 feet in
the gulf stream, so current exercise caution statements look good.

No substantive changes to the previous forecast.

Climate Melbourne will have the only record warm low today, but a
few additional coastal sites should have a chance for records on
Friday.

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.
