Update
The pressure gradient will weaken slightly tonight as high
pressure builds to the northeast. Let the wind advisory expire,
and winds should remain below 20mph along the coast this evening
and then diminish further overnight. A few light showers/sprinkles
continue over the marine waters. Do not expect any accumulation
for the land areas overnight. Smoke may reduce visibilities
overnight in portions of nassau, baker, columbia, duval, and
charlton counties overnight due to a large wildfire. Overnight
lows will be in the low to mid 50s across the interior and the
upper 50s to lower 60s for the coastal areas.

Aviation
GenerallyVFR conditions are forecast through the period for the
northeast florida TAF sites. MVFR CIGS will prevail into the
overnight hours at kssi. Northeasterly flow will become more
easterly as high pressure shifts off to the northeast. The
pressure gradient will also begin to relax some, and lighter winds
around 5 knots are expected overnight. Easterly winds will
increase to 10-15 knots on Friday. Ceilings will range from 3-5
kft for the florida TAF sites, and 1.5-4kft at kssi through the
period.

Marine
Easterly flow will fall below 20 knots overnight as the pressure
gradient begins to weaken. Seas will remain 6-10 feet offshore
and 5-7 feet nearshore overnight and small craft advisories remain
in effect.

High surf advisory remains in effect for portions of the northeast
florida coast until 5 am.

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.
