Discussion
A cold front pushing through the fl big bend NRN peninsula this evng
is doing so with little fanfare and no precip. Evng raobs show
sparse moisture acrs the state with pwat values running btwn 0.75"-
1.00" ahead of the frontal boundary and arnd 1.00" acrs it. Much of
this moisture, however, is in the form a mixed mid upr lvl cloud
deck as the ktae kjax soundings revealed.

Rap40 analysis shows the mean flow acrs the frontal boundary backs
from W NW thru h100-h70 to W SW thru h85-h50. This will ensure a
slow but steady FROPA overnight with some increase in clouds along
and north of the i-4 corridor... South of i-4, skies will be mostly
clear. Sfc dewpoints in the 50s areawide will keep overnight temps
a few deg abv avg, particularly along and north of i-4 where
increasing cloud cover will reduce radiational cooling.

Aftn fcst package looks good, no updates necessary this evng.

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.
