AVIATION. Mostly VFR conditions should hold through mid morning, when scattered thunderstorms are expected to begin to develop again and continue increasing in coverage and shifting inland through the afternoon. Periods of reduced flight categories will be possible as storms move overhead. Thunderstorms are expected to clear out during the late afternoon and early evening as storms dissipate and shift inland.

UPDATE . Our weather pattern seems like a broken record . Low level ridge axis is stretched across south florida with a surface low to our north is providing us with moderate to strong west-southwest winds in the lowest 5,000 feet. Moisture is abundant with PWATs hovering around 2.00 inches. Similar to last night, spotty convection will continue to form inland for the next couple of hours before slowly dissipating as daytime heating wanes. However, numerous showers and an embedded thunderstorms or two are currently over our northern Gulf waters. These will continue to propagate eastward across the waters and into the Nature Coast through much of the evening, and perhaps lingering through the overnight hours . Only update to the most recent forecast was to make adjustments to the PoPs in the very short term, better reflecting the enhanced convective area across the northern areas.

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.
