259 am edt Sun aug 18 2019

Discussion
Moist and unstable conditions continue early this morning with e
gulf convection moving ashore coastal areas through daybreak.

Broad upper ridge expected to continue from the W atlantic through
the gulf region to over tx with a general weakness in the ridge from
the NE gulf into the deep south today through mid week.

Western atlantic surface high pressure ridge axis now over S fl to
slowly lift nward today as deep south frontal boundary washes out.

Deep SW flow continues over N fl for another day of numerous showers
and thunderstorms with highest rain chances over the N nature coast
as areal flooding persists across levy and northwest citrus
counties, and additional rain will make it difficult for flood
waters to recede so will continue flood watch for those areas today.

Central and SW fl zones begin transistion to se-s low level flow
precip regimes today, mainly along diurnal seabreeze and outflow
boundaries.

As surface ridge axis weakens and holds over the c fl peninsula
through late week, precip will develop primarily on afternoon into
evening boundary interactions. By the end of the week into next
weekend series of northern stream upper troughs further suppress
upper ridging over the region with summertime temps and rain
chances continuing.

Aviation
Early morning coastal storms moving ashore to impact flight
conditions thru 12z then low level winds more southerly today
with late morning early afternoon sea breeze developing with sct
shra with embedded tsra possible especially from ksrq northward
with brief periods of MVFR ifr conditions possible through this
afternoon, so will hold vcts.

Marine
Western atlantic high pressure ridge weakens and the axis lifts over
the central gulf waters today and holds in place through mid week
with fairly light winds and seas. Continue to expect summertime
showers and thunderstorms to bring locally higher winds and seas.

Fire weather
Abundant moisture with high summertime humidity and rain chances
continue.

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.
