Update
Today... No significant change needed to the previous forecast.

Morning soundings show a dry air mass with deep westerly flow.

Surface westerly winds are not strong, around 10 knots, so a late
day sea breeze may move just onto the mainland. Still, MAX temps
will reach near 85 areawide, except for lower 80s along some
beaches. Patchy low level clouds early this morning will mix out due
to the dry air mass and forecast soundings suggest fewer daytime
heating cumulus than yesterday. Some afternoon cirrus is indicated
but overall the sky will be mostly sunny once again.

Aviation Brief MVFR ceilings occurred early this morning at a
few terminals, but deep dry air will result inVFR areawide before
noon. Coastal terminals may experience a sea breeze late this
afternoon. A few patches of ground fog may develop again early
Friday morning, especially kvrb-kfpr.

Marine
Today tonight... Good boating conditions today with westerly flow
around 10 knots, except backing to southerly near the coast during
peak heating. A slight diurnal increase in southwest west winds to
10-15 knots is indicated this evening, then diminishing overnight.

Seas will be 2-3 feet near shore and 3-4 feet offshore.

Mlb watches warnings advisories

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
