Update
Diurnal sea breeze driven shower and thunderstorm coverage
was very low to non-existent across central and northern
portions of the forecast area during the afternoon due to
some very dry mid level air over the region, with the best
convective coverage noted across southwest florida where
better moisture existed. Early this evening 88d returns
shows some newly developed convection over northeast
hillsborough and northern polk counties associated with the
sea breeze and outflow boundary interactions, but this
convection should wane quickly within the next hour with
rain free conditions under partly cloudy skies expected for
the rest of the night. Will update the zones shortly to
remove evening rain wording, otherwise no other changes are
required at this time. On Sunday an increase in moisture
will lead to better coverage of showers and storms along the
sea breeze and outflow boundaries during the afternoon and
early evening hours.

Aviation
Vfr is expected at all terminals the rest of tonight through
18z on Sunday. After 18z brief MVFR ifr CIGS vsbys may
impact the terminals as shra tsra redevelop over the region.

Outside of the convectionVFR will prevail. Southwest to
west winds in the 5 to 7 knot range early tonight will
become light and variable after 02z tonight with winds
becoming southwest to west at 7 to 10 knots at the coastal
sites after 18z on Sunday as the sea breeze redevelops with
gusts up to 30 knots possible in the vicinity of tsra.

Marine
The onshore sea breeze component along the coast will
collapse in the next hour or so with loss of daytime
heating with a light southeast to southerly wind flow around
10 knots with slight seas expected the rest of the night
into Sunday as high pressure remains in control with a weak
pressure pattern again supporting an onshore sea breeze
component redeveloping along the coast Sunday afternoon.

Wind and seas will be higher near any thunderstorms,
otherwise no headlines are expected. Current forecast is on
track with no changes expected in the next update around 9
pm.

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.
