Update
East central florida is currently in a deep onshore flow with an
inverted trough over the bahamas and the atlantic ridge axis to
the north. This morning's goes-16 total precipitable water shows a
fairly dry airmass by august florida standards with 1.6-1.7"
across much of the area. The only exception is south of melbourne
and over the adjacent coastal waters where pwats are coming in
around 1.8-1.9". The pressure gradient is also tighter across this
same area making the onshore flow stronger. Believe the higher
moisture and stronger onshore flow will produce a better chance of
showers over the atlantic making it onshore so will bump up
chances slightly to 30% from melbourne southward with this
morning's update. Will continue slight storm chances this
afternoon across the interior as well, but most areas expected to
stay dry.

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected through the TAF period. Drier airmass will
result in low coverage of showers and storms this afternoon.

Currently only mentionable precip in tafs will be for fpr sua
through this morning for onshore-moving showers. Otherwise,
coverage looks too low to include. Any precip expected to have
shifted west of lee by the early evening hours with only a low
shower chance vrb-sua overnight tonight.

Marine
Today-tonight (previous)... Favorable boating conds continue as the
bermuda ridge axis anchored along the fl ga border generates a
light to gentle E SE breeze acrs the LCL atlc. Seas AOB 2ft. Isold

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.
