On Sunday, a return to scattered coverage is expected across the entire area and there is a potential for offshore moving storms in the afternoon, mainly north of sebastian inlet.
Gulf stream hazards..None. The approximate location of the west wall of the gulf stream based on the real time ocean forecast system as of Friday august 17th. 40 nautical miles east of ponce inlet. 28 nautical miles east of port canaveral. 23 nautical miles east of sebastian inlet. 15 nautical miles east of fort pierce inlet. 8 nautical miles east of saint lucie inlet.

Latest rap40 analysis showing the axis of the bermuda ridge draped
over central fl, resulting in a southerly breeze AOB 10kts from the
sfc thru 10kft. GOES pwat product showing a pocket of very dry air
drifting north acrs central fl, with core values arnd 1.00". Mrng
raobs map this dry air quite well... Pwat values btwn 1.25"-1.50" at
kxmr ktbw, increasing to 1.75"-2.00" at kjax kmfl. Rap40 analysis
picking up on the dry air as well, h100-h70 mean rh values btwn 50-
60pct north of CAPE canaveral lake-k, increasing to 70-80pct over
the treasure coast lake-o region.

Thermodynamic instability is modestly steep... H70 temps btwn 9-10c
and h50 temps arnd -7c are yielding lapse rates btwn 6.0-6.5c km
thru the layer. Dynamic support is quite weak, however, as h85-h30
omega and h30-h20 divergence values are negligible. There is a
pocket of enhanced h85-h50 vorticity over polk osceola counties
associated with a weak ripple in the mid lvl wind fields, but this
feature is planted firmly in the center of the dry air, so any pva
that may result will be starved of moisture.

The east coast sea breeze has formed from the CAPE southward... Isold
shras dvlpg along its boundary over the treasure coast. Given the
moisture profile, diurnal precip will be largely confined to areas
south of CAPE canaveral and lake-k. To the north, dry air will
smother any large scale pops. A few shras tsras psbl late this aftn
along and north of i-4, but will require the east west coast sea
breeze merger to spark them. Dry air and limited cloud cover will
allow MAX temps over the interior from osceola co. Northward to warm
into the m90s. Early formation of the east coast sea breeze will
keep coastal MAX temps in the l90s... Okeechobee co. In the l90s as
well as the prevailing srly flow will place them in the lake shadow.

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.
