DISCUSSION.

. Patchy Fog Possible Late Tonight into Saturday Morning .

Tonight-Saturday . Dry conditions continue through this evening as a weak cold front sags south across north-central FL. Light showers are likely to move in over areas north of I-4 after midnight, as rain chances increase to 20-30 percent late tonight. Overnight lows drop into the upper 50s to around 60 degrees.

Conditions are favorable for patchy fog to develop tonight across east-central Florida, with the highest chances across the interior and especially in Lake County. Motorists should be prepared for the possibility of quick reductions in visibility to below 1 mile.

By sunrise Saturday the front will be located roughly from the Nature Coast east to Volusia/Flagler counties. Expect rain chances around 30 percent for Saturday morning into the early afternoon, mostly for areas from Brevard and Osceola counties northward. Should remain mostly dry south of Vero Beach.

High res models show light stratiform rain overspreading the area tomorrow into the evening. Any accumulations will be minimal given the light nature of the rain. Cloudy skies for much of the day will keep temps cool as afternoon highs reach the upper 60s north of I-4, and low 70s south to Melbourne. Clearer skies along the Treasure Coast early in the day will allow temps to warm into the mid/upper 70s.

edited prev disc .

By Sunday, surface high pressure that was over the Appalachians drifts offshore of the Carolinas, wrapping the band of moisture from the front on the periphery which will keep a mention of showers initially over the Atlantic waters. With the center of the high east of the local area, onshore winds will veer southeast by late Sunday afternoon, which wl allow for showers to migrate inland, esp across the Space Coast and points inland to the I-4 corridor later in the day.

Temperature range will be limited by cloud cover Sunday to the mid to upper 70s. Low temperatures in the upper 50s to lower 60s.

Next Week . Similar to the weekend forecast, next week will be defined by zonal flow aloft, and a few approaching cold fronts which will yet again wash out prior to reaching the local area. The first arrives late Monday into Tuesday across northeast FL, sagging as it weakens to east central FL on Wednesday. Only signal from this passage will be a brief return of northerly winds midweek prior to the approach of another cold front. As of now, the front in the latter end of the week does appear to be more robust than the previous two, which may offer a better chance for showers Thursday and Friday.

Without the assistance of cooler air, and southwest flow early in the week, highs will quickly climb to the low to mid 80s Monday through Wednesday, with slightly lower values Thursday behind the front. Lows will also persist above normal, in the lower 60s.

AVIATION.

As a weak cold front sags south into central Florida tonight expecting low stratus to develop across the area with patchy fog in some spots. A TEMPO group has been added at KLEE where confidence is higher for fog development, though other inland terminals could experience fog in the early morning hours. The lowest CIGs are forecast from KISM- KDAB northward where IFR/LIFR conditions are possible after 22/08Z-09Z. The low clouds reach KMLB and areas south after sunrise, and are expected to linger for much of the day on Saturday.

MARINE.

Tonight-Saturday . Generally favorable boating conditions through tonight with WSW/W winds at 10-15 knots ahead of an approaching weak cold front. Winds will veer NW and then quickly snap around to N/NE by Saturday afternoon/evening behind the front as high pressure builds into the western Atlantic. While winds should remain around 10-15 knots, a brief increase in winds up to 15-20 knots is possible well offshore Saturday evening. Seas 2-3 feet.

Sunday . East winds become southeast Sunday night while remaining within headline criteria. Seas 4-6 ft will continue over the open waters through Sunday night.

Next Week . With the high drifting further from the area and the approach of another cold front, winds will continue to veer south to southwest Monday and Tuesday, around 13-20 knots. This will maintain seas of at least 4-5 ft through midweek, with winds and seas diminishing late Tuesday and Wednesday behind another weak frontal passage.

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.
