Update
Latest rap analysis shows surface high pressure from the western
atlantic extending west across the north-central peninsula and
into the eastern gulf with a light east-southeast wind flow across
the forecast area. Morning RAOB data shows drier air over the
region with a pw of 1.76 inches which is down over a quarter of an
inch from yesterday at this time. This drier air will likely
delay the onset of convection during the afternoon and will keep
overall coverage lower than previous days, but am still expecting
scattered showers storms to develop during the afternoon with the
best coverage focusing along and east of the i-75 corridor late in
the afternoon where the east west coast sea breeze merger will
likely occur. A weak steering flow via RAOB data will support slow
moving storms with some locally heavy rainfall likely. With the
ground remaining quite saturated from the recent heavy rains some
localized flooding of low lying and poor drainage areas will be
possible along with some additional rises on area rivers. In
addition will need to monitor the ongoing areal flooding across
levy and citrus counties as well as local flooding along the
little withlacoochee river in southwestern sumter county and east
central hernando county where flood warnings remain in effect
until 530 and 9 pm respectively. Current forecast is on track with
no morning update required at this time.

Aviation
Will maintain vcts at all of the terminals between 20-01z for
some late afternoon scattered shra tsra development, otherwise
vfr will prevail. Light east winds this morning will become west
northwest at 6 to 8 knots at the coastal sites after 19z as the
sea breeze develops, with light east to southeast winds expected
after 01z tonight.

Marine
East to southeast winds around 10 knots with seas of 2 feet or
less will continue across the gulf waters the remainder of today
with an onshore sea breeze component developing along the coast
during the afternoon. Ongoing forecast is on track with no changes
expected in the mid morning update around 10 am.

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.
