DISCUSSION. Just updated the WCN to remove Citrus, Sumter, Hernando, Pasco, and Pinellas counties. The line of storms has pushed south through those areas at this time. Rest of the forecast continues on track and will continue to update and clear counties through the morning as the line continues to push south through the area.

AVIATION. Have tempos in through the morning as the line moves through the area. Winds will turn to the NW behind it at generally 10-12kts through the rest of the afternoon. Winds drop off and turn more to the NNW after sunset. Winds then become light and shift to the NE after midnight as skies become clear.

MARINE. Winds will be shifting to the NW behind the front today, and then turn to the NE overnight. Winds continue to turn to the E and SE Sunday and Monday, then another front approaches the area Tuesday and moves through Tuesday night/Wednesday. Winds will increase to near SCA levels with this front. Current forecast is on track with all of this and adjustments will be to clear out rain chances for the northern and central waters later this morning.

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.
