Discussion
Main forecast concern tonight will continue to be fog development
late in the overnight hours through early morning Sunday. Mos
guidance continues to show best potential for dense fog stratus
moving into lake county, and eastward through the i-4 corridor
and toward the volusia coast. Earlier runs of the local WRF and
hrrr also agreed quite well on this scenario. However, the most
recent runs of both models have now backed off on fog development
quite significantly, keeping any areas of dense fog west and north
of lake and volusia counties.

With favorable setup of light winds and mostly clear skies in
place, will keep areas of fog mentioned in the forecast for
northern areas, with patchy fog farther south. However, the recent
trends in the models do leave room for a little more uncertainty
in amount of fog coverage for late tonight. Regardless, localized
visibilities of a quarter of a mile or less will at least be
possible. Favorable radiational cooling conditions should again
allow temperatures to fall into the upper 50s to low 60s over
much of the area overnight.

Aviation Vfr conditions expected to persist through 06z, then
fog stratus development overnight will reduce cig vis as low as
ifr lifr through early Sunday morning. Best potential for these
conditions will be across northern TAF sites, with more tempo
reductions to ifr MVFR from patchy ground fog from kmlb-ksua. Fog
and stratus will burn off into the morning, withVFR conditions
then expected to prevail through the afternoon.

Marine There is a potential for dense fog to push off the
volusia county coast again early Sun morning. Otherwise, boating
conditions will remain favorable tonight through tomorrow with
winds 10 knots or less and seas 2-3 feet. A slight increase in
onshore flow to 10-12 knots is indicated Sun afternoon.

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.
