Update
High pressure ridge axis has settled a little farther south over the
past 24h, and now lies across central fl and the adjacent atlantic.

3.9um IR imagery shows a few scraps of diurnal stratocu lingering
over the far SE cwa, but these will be dissipating soon. Thin but
expansive swath of ci cs is streaming across the SE CONUS and poised
to spill SE over the top of the ridge and into fl starting around
midnight and continuing into Tuesday. Grids zfp already account for
these clouds. Lows tonight in the u60s-l70s under calm winds.

As has been the case the past several nights, earlier (7pm) update
to remove high rip current risk will suffice for the overnight pd.

Aviation Vfr. Skc to bkn250.

Marine Local buoy data shows swells continue to slowly subside,
and are now running 3ft near shore and 4ft well away from the coast.

Inherited forecast has this well in hand... No changes needed.

Prev discussion issued 314 pm edt Mon oct 14 2019
Tuesday-Wednesday (modified previous discussion)... Ridge
responsible for fair conditions to start the week will move
seaward as low level winds veer slightly south. Despite some
increase in moisture the airmass will remain to stable to support
a mentionable rain chance. It will be seasonably warm with highs
in the mid to upper 80s and lows in the upper 60s to low 70s. A
developing surface low north of the state early Wednesday will
move off the mid-atlantic coast by late Wednesday. The feature
will drag a frontal boundary near north fl late Wednesday night.

Increasing instability associated with this upstream feature will
bring a chance of showers, especially across northern zones by
Wednesday afternoon, with a storm or two possible by late
afternoon. Upper level forcing dosen't appear to suggest any
widespread rainfall, with isolated convection around lake
okeechobee and the treasure coast.

Thursday-Sunday (modified previous discussion)... The surface
boundary is shown settling across the central or southern
peninsula late in the week with moisture convergence and perhaps
some forcing from above with potential for isolated storms
Thursday and Friday as a mid level disturbance or two moves across
the region. Will keep scattered rain chances in the forecast
through the period of the weekend, with uncertainty on any favored
area for measurable daily rains due to placement of surface
features. Considerable cloud cover should keep temp range near to
slightly below normal.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail.

Sfc winds: thru 15 00z... E NE 6-9kts. Btwn 15 00z-15 03z... Bcmg vrbl
aob 3kts. Btwn 15 13z-15 16z... Bcmg E SE 7-10kts.

Marine
Rest of today-tonight... Good boating conditions, light east winds
5-10 knots with seas 3-4 feet.

Tuesday-Wednesday... Onshore winds 10 knots or less on Tuesday will
veer to the south and increase to 10-15 knots on Wednesday,
especially north of the cape, as a weak front approaches the
area. Seas average 3-4 feet with slightly higher seas offshore.

Scattered shower and perhaps a few lightning storms will be
possible Wednesday afternoon as the front arrives.

Thursday-Friday... Weak front moving near the marine area mid to
late week will keep favorable conditions with no headlines for
wind or seas expected. Seas 2-3 feet by Wednesday night, lasting
through Friday. Winds 10 knot or less expected. Rain chances
increase with afternoon showers possible.

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.
