Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Synopsis..A cool front will weaken as it pushes across south florida and the northwest bahamas into this afternoon. High pressure will build across the southeast united states behind the front, forcing local onshore winds to freshen out of the north and northeast and bring hazardous boating conditions for the latter half of the week.
Gulf stream hazards..North winds up to 15 knots will produce seas up to 5 ft today. Seas will build to 7 feet in the gulf stream tonight. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Sunday january 21st. 40 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 32 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 26 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 18 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 12 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Today... A frontal boundary will move through south fl and the nw
bahamas today with northerly surface winds this morning becoming nne
in the afternoon. A drier low level airmass will move gradually
southward into central sections this afternoon and toward the
treasure coast later tonight. Lingering low level moisture will
affect mainly far southern sections today with some mid and high
level cloudiness approaching NRN areas in the late afternoon. High
temperatures will be cooler in the mid 60s along the volusia coast
to near 70 in orlando and the lower 70s for the SRN interior.
Tonight... As surface high pressure builds toward al and ga, the
pressure gradient will tighten with northerly winds expected. Winds
will become breezy along the beaches as winds increase across the
atlantic waters through the night. Lows will be cooler in the 40s
across the NRN interior volusia and inland brevard counties. It will
be milder along the treasure coast and martin county with lows in
Thu-fri... A cool start to the morning on Thu with very early morning
wind chills in the u30s north of i-4. Fairly strong high pressure
over the deep south will move to along the eastern seaboard thu
evening, then just offshore and into the western atlc by late
fri Fri evening. Initial north winds will veer to easterly by early
fri thru Fri night. The pressure gradient remains fairly tight and
we will see breezy gusty conditions on both Thu fri. Mainly dry
conditions, though we may see some light precip (schc) along the
treasure coast on Fri due to the deep onshore flow. Pwat values
generally under one inch during this time with deepest moisture over
the southern portion of our cwa. Mainly zonal flow aloft with
increasing heights at 500 mb over the region into early Sat morning.
Highs mainly in the 60s on Fri with near 60 degrees l60s along the
volusia coast and u60s 70 degrees over martin county. Highs continue
to climb into the u60s l70s areawide on fri. Overnight lows for fri
morning in the u40s north of i-4 and 50s southward, except around 60
degrees southeast martin county. Overnight lows for Sat morning
generally in the 50s areawide, except l60s southeast st. Lucie coast
and coastal martin county.
Sat-sun... Surface high pressure ridging continues north of the area
on Sat with a gradual shift further eastward into the western atlc
over the weekend. This as weak low pressure develops over the
northern gomex Sat night and begins to move eastward. This feature
should move across the fl panhandle Sun afternoon, then up the
southeast u.S. Coast Sun night. The 00z GFS remains faster than the
00z ecmwf. Eventually this low with the help of some subtle
shortwave energy aloft will drag a cold front across ecfl; late sun
afternoon evening if the GFS has its way or Sun overnight early mon
if the ECMWF is the winner. While timing and low front location
remain of low confidence at this time, it appears that a period of
likely pops will be associated with this system. Isolated lightning
storms may also develop and for right now have matched up with
neighboring offices and added a small lightning threat north of i-4
sun afternoon early evening. The window for heaviest precip lies
from late aftn Sun into Sun night. Expect this window to tighten as
model clarity presents itself closer to this weekend.
The winds begin to veer a bit more to ese on Sat sat night, then
more southerly into Sun with the approach of this next low pressure
system. Temperatures mainly in the 70s areawide on sat, perhaps only
around 70 for the volusia coast, and 70s areawide again on sun,
perhaps around 80 degrees south of orlando depending on timing of
the low pressure, clouds, and precip. Lows Sat overnight Sun morning
in the l60s, except u50s north of i-4 and potential m60s for the
immediate space treasure coasts. Overnight lows Sun night mon
morning in the 50s, except l60s along the south brevard treasure
Mon-tue... Early portion of this period to be affected obviously in
timing of the aforementioned front. Depending also on how fast the
moisture scours out have left a schc for showers along north of i-4
with low end chance (near 30pct) across our south. General drying at
least by Mon evening thru Tue is expected as high pressure builds
into the area. The pressure gradient looks to remain rather tight
into early next week so we may see some breezy gusty conditions on
either of these days.
Some cooler temperatures to start the new week with 60s on mon,
except perhaps l70s for okeechobee and the treasure coast. Tue's|
highs a couple few degrees cooler than mon. Lows in the 40s mon
overnight Tue morning for much of the interior, except l-m 50s
closer towards the space treasure coasts. Lows for overnight Tue wed
morning generally in the 50s, but areas north of i-4 may still
MainlyVFR weather expected the next 24 hrs. Sct-bkn lower clouds
cigs in the 030-040 range are expected to develop in the kfpr-ksua
corridor into the afternoon. Otherwise a drier low level airmass
should limit cumulus development from kism-ktix northward through
23z. Sct-bkn jet stream cirrus expected across terminals for tonight.
Today... Northerly winds are expected to near 15 knots with seas up
to 5 ft offshore behind the frontal boundary moving southeast of the
Tonight... With surface high pressure building into the southeast and
a tightening pressure gradient will see northerly winds increase to
15-20 knots into late evening and around 20 knots from midnight
onward. This will builds seas to around 7 ft in the gulf stream late
tonight. Will start advisory at 11 pm for all the waters with winds
expected to increase to around 20 knots overnight.
Thu-thu night... High pressure over the deep south moves to along the
eastern seaboard Thu night. The pressure gradient will remain fairly
tight, such that, initial nne winds around 20 kts and gusty continue
overnight while veering to ene by daybreak Fri morning. Six foot
seas over the open atlc will build to 7-8 ft gulf stream and 5-7 ft
near shore. Small craft advisory areawide for the hazardous small
craft boating conditions.
Fri-sat... The high pressure pushes off of the mid atlc coast and
into the western atlc late Fri afternoon Fri evening with mainly
e ese winds. Conditions expected to remain poor to hazardous for
small craft. Winds will decrease to 15-20 kts over the gulf stream
and 10-15 kts elsewhere. However, seas will remain elevated into the
weekend, in upwards of 6-9 ft at times over the gulf stream and 5-7
ft near shore, perhaps 4-6 ft near shore volusia coast. Expect sca's
to be extended into this weekend for much of the area. Light precip
chances will exist over the period with deep onshore flow.
The next low pressure front to affect the area will cross the waters
late Sun into early Mon with a period of likely precip, and perhaps
isolated lightning. Confidence is low on timing due to model
inconsistency which should become more clear closer towards the
Today... Northerly winds inland will allow a drier airmass to move
down the peninsula with min rhs to 32-35 percent west of a lake
george to kissimme line. Critically long rh durations are not
expected. Winds will be 10 mph or less across the interior and
around 10 mph near the immediate coast.
Thu-fri... Developing onshore flow (ne on Thu and E on fri) will
elevate rhs with stronger surface and transport winds leading to
good to very good dispersion values during the daytime hours.

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.
