Discussion
Hi pres remains in firm control of the LCL wx pattern. The ridge is
centered about midway btwn bermuda puerto rico and extends well into
the gomex, resulting in continued deep srly flow and a highly
suppressed airmass over central fl. Morning raobs measured pwats
around 1.00" and a sharp subsidence inversion in the h85-h70 lyr.

Mid lvl is bone dry with h70-h50 dewpoint depressions arnd 40c. The
h100-h70 lyr has just enough moisture (arnd 70pct mean rh) to wring
out a few shras over the atlc, but the S SE flow is preventing these
from moving onshore.

Mostly sunny skies and srly flow will allow MAX temps to warm into
the m u80s... 10-15f abv avg. Both east west coast sea breezes should
form by midday and push well inland thru the day. This may
concentrate what little moisture there is to generate isold late
aftn shra inland, but these will have little impact as the mid lvl
subsidence inversion will cap the LCL airmass blo 10kft. Updates to
extend slgt chc of aftn shras into NW osceola N brevard, no other
changes necessary.

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.
