Update
Sfc analysis shows near normal position of the high pressure ridge
over north central fl area. Deep 1000-500 mb flow remains southwest
(jax sounding showing 240 deg at 9 knots) with moisture levels near
or below normal and the driest air noted in GOES imagery over
central fl with min value of about 1.1 inches there, but 1.9 inches
in southeast ga.

At this time, only scattered mid to high levels clouds which are
thin enough in most areas for good heating today with scattered to
broken CU forming by late morning. Highs today forecast in the lower
to mid 90s, perhaps a little warmer than yesterday given latest
sounding temps. With the drier air from central fl lifting slowly
northward, convection chances are diminished from prior days and
will keep inherited 20-30 percent chances for northeast fl, though
southeast ga will have higher pops around 30-50 percent given pwats
there closer to normal at 1.7 to 2 inches. There is also some weak
shortwave energy pushing through SRN ga later in the day helping to
provide some synoptic lift there. West coast and east coast sea
breeze should be active today with the east coast sea breeze delayed
until around 17z-18z given southwest flow. An isolated strong to
severe pulse storm remains possible today with frequent to excessive
lightning, and given dry air aloft enhances the potential for
downburst winds up to 40-60 mph. For the update, have tweaked max
temps up a deg or so and adjusted pops toward latest guidance and
trends.

Aviation
Vfr conditions prevail. Light southwest flow near 5-10 kt expected
today with wind shift to southeast for coastal tafs with the east
coast sea breeze. Light winds will become southwest again at all
tafs by late evening and overnight. Overall, a low chance of showers
or t-storms at the terminals for today so vicinity wording starting
around 18z-19z looks good at this time.

Marine
Southwest winds near 5-15 kt will shift to the south and southeast
this afternoon near 10-15 kt. Seas mostly around 2-3 ft with wind
waves about 4 seconds and weak east swells at about 8 seconds. Looks
like coastal waters, except inland waterways, will remain nearly
rain-free today.

Rip currents: moderate risk today NE fl coast and lower risk for low
risk for SE ga today. Surf conditions show 1-2 ft per latest obs and
guidance.

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.
