Threat of rip currents east coast beaches this week...

Hazardous marine conditions in the atlantic due to northerly
swell from hurricane humberto...

Discussion
Hurricane humberto over the western atlantic waters is forecast
by NHC to move easterly through the middle of this week allowing
for the winds over south florida to be northwest tonight into
Tuesday before swinging more northeast by Wednesday. This will
also bring in some drier air to south florida from the north
reducing the coverage of showers and thunderstorms over the region
to 20 to 30 percent, with the best coverage over the eastern
areas on Tuesday shifting to more southwest region by Wednesday.

Humberto is forecast by NHC to move more quickly to the east late
this week into the northern atlantic waters as high pressure
builds over the gulf of mexico. This will allow for the pressure
gradient to tighten over south florida bringing a breezy to windy
northeast flow. This will allow for some showers to quickly move
westward across south florida from the atlantic waters late this
week, but the coverage will be in the 20 to 30 percent range.

Extended forecast
The long range models are still showing a low level trough moving
west-northwest from the bahamas late this week across south
florida next weekend. The trough will bring in deeper tropical
moisture to south florida leading to scattered to numerous showers
and thunderstorms for this weekend over south florida.

Marine
The winds will be northerly tonight into Tuesday before going
more northeasterly for the middle to end of this week. The speeds
will be less than 15 knots tonight through Tuesday before
increasing to breezy to even possibility of windy conditions by
late mid to end of this week.

A northeast swell from humberto will be increasing this week and
will get to 6 to 8 feet in the palm beach waters and 2 to 4 feet
in rest of the atlantic waters by the second half of this week.

If the forecast continues as is with the swells, then a high surf
advisory may be needed for the beaches of palm beach county for
the middle to later this week.

The building northeast swells and the increasing north northeast
winds through the week will allow for the seas to build from 5 to
7 feet tonight to 7 to 9 feet by mid to late week, except for the
atlantic waters of palm beach county where the seas should get
into the 9 to 12 feet. The gulf waters should seas of 2 feet or
less tonight into Tuesday before increasing to 2 to 4 feet for the
mid to end of the week. Therefore, the SCA conditions have been
extended through Friday for the atlantic waters.

Beach forecast
The high risk of rip currents will continue through at least
Friday for the beaches of palm beach county. Rest of the atlantic
beaches of south florida will also be on an increase from
moderate conditions tonight and should go to high conditions on
Tuesday and remain high through rest of the week.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
