Update
Moderate rip current risk at east central florida beaches...

morning central florida soundings at the CAPE and tampa indicate low
level moisture depth is limited to about 8 kft with a substantial
dry layer from h7-h5 associated with subsidence from the mid level
ridge aloft. Short range models continue to indicate some enhanced
low level moisture rounding the surface ridge with an uptick in
pwats to around 1.3 inland this afternoon from around an inch this
morning. This should allow for isolated shower development initially
along a diffuse east coast sea breeze and then into the interior
this afternoon with low level SE flow. Made some slight grid updates
based on current trends but overall little change to going forecast.

High temperatures should reach the lower 80s coast and mid 80s
interior. A lingering ene ocean swell will produce a moderate risk
for rip currents at east central fl beaches today.

Aviation
Conditions will predominantly beVFR across the area today, with
only brief reductions to MVFR in any isolated showers that develop
along and inland of the east coast sea breeze through the day.

Marine
Current observations at buoy 41009 indicate SE winds around 10 knots
and seas 4-5 ft with seas also 4-5 ft at buoy 41114 the last several
hours. SE winds up to 10-15 knots expected through this afternoon
with isolated showers possible across the waters. Previous... Today-
tonight... Ridge axis north of the waters will gradually shift
southward and across the region into tonight. This will veer
southeast flow to a more southerly direction past sunset, with wind
speeds remaining around 10-15 knots. Longer period swells will
decrease slightly into today, with seas ranging from 3-5 feet.

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.
