DISCUSSION.

. Warm and Mostly Dry on Thanksgiving Day . . Strong Cold Front Forecast to Sweep Through on Monday .

Today-Tonight . High pressure over the Northeast will be ushered eastward into the Atlantic today, as a mid-upper level low crosses through the interior Midwest and into the Ohio Valley. Locally, remaining mostly dry, with forecast soundings maintaining the stout subsidence inversion above 850mb. A few isolated sprinkles will be possible along the coast from Brevard northward through sunrise this morning, then chances (~15%) shift offshore through late morning, as marine stratocu continues to stream onshore. SE winds today on the periphery of the aforementioned high pressure. The pressure gradient will be weaker than previous days, with speeds around 10-15mph along the coast and 10mph or less inland. A warming trend will begin today, with highs increasing into the low 80s. Overall, temperatures around 5 degrees above average this afternoon. Overnight lows in the low to mid 60s.

Rough surf and a Moderate risk of rip currents is expected at area beaches again today. Large waves can knock you down and make you more susceptible to being caught in a rip current. Always swim near a lifeguard.

Thu-Fri . Low level ridge axis will extend SW across the FL peninsula resulting in warm temperatures, low rain chances and lighter winds. There may be enough onshore flow to bring a few light showers across the coast on Thanksgiving mainly south of Sebastian Inlet. Highs will reach the low 80s along the coast both days with mid 80s over the interior. Record highs look to be a bit out of reach except at LEE where max temps should approach the records of 85F and 84F, respectively. Mild low temps will continue with lower 60s interior and mid to upper 60s coast.

Sat-Sun . A weak front is forecast to settle south and stall across central FL on Sat which will bring an increase in cloudiness esp across the north half of the FA but rain chances look too low to mention. On Sun, convergence along the front will increase as low pressure develops over the lower MS valley. This should produce isolated to scattered showers across the north on Sunday as the boundary retreats back northward as a warm front.

Model guidance has come into better agreement showing a cut-off upper low over the SW US pushing eastward this weekend then phasing with the northern stream over the eastern US, resulting in a large cut-off upper low over the TN/OH valleys early next week. In the low levels, a sfc low will develop along the central/western Gulf coast Sunday and lift quickly NE toward the eastern Great Lakes while deepening rapidly. A strong cold front is forecast to push across the area on Monday preceded by a band of showers/storms. Wind fields suggest a threat for strong to isolated severe storms as the convection pushes rapidly across the area. There are some timing differences with the ECMWF now being slightly faster (after midnight Sunday) and the slower GFS on Monday. Have increased PoPs and added thunder to northern sections late Sunday night but maintain highest PoPs for Monday at 50 percent.

Both models show strong cold advection behind the front Monday night and Tuesday. The ECMWF may be too cold as air parcel trajectories will be off the Gulf of Mexico which should allow some airmass modification. Nonetheless, much cooler air will overspread the area with low temps Tue in the 50s, except 40s north of Orlando.

AVIATION. VFR conditions prevailing through the TAF period. SE winds today, as high pressure over the Northeast pushes into the Atlantic. Winds around 10kts or less across the interior and up to 12kts along the coast. A few isolated sprinkles will be possible along the coast before sunrise this morning from KTIX-KDAB; however, confidence is too low to include in the TAF. Otherwise, expected to remain dry, with SCT050 stratocu streaming onshore. Winds becoming light after sunset.

MARINE. Today-Tonight . Southeast winds today, as high pressure over the Northeast ventures eastward into the Atlantic ahead of a low pressure system pushing into the Ohio Valley. The pressure gradient will be relaxed compared to the last several days, with winds around 15kts. Seas 4-6ft nearshore, while the offshore zones will carry 6- 7ft seas through mid morning. Then, seas are expected to diminish into the afternoon. The Small Craft Advisory has been extended for the Atlantic waters past 20nm until 10AM this morning, as buoy observations indicate seas remaining up to 7ft as of 4AM. Small craft should exercise caution in the nearshore waters. Isolated sprinkles possible this morning over the Atlantic, as marine stratocu continues to push onshore.

Thu-Sun . High pressure ridge axis will extend from the western Atlc SW across north FL Thu-Fri resulting in lighter east to southeast wind flow of 5-10 knots, except around 10 knots over the southern waters. A weak front will drop south and stall across central FL and the adjacent Atlc on Sat before retreating back northward as a warm front on Sunday. A period of north winds is expected Sat behind the front but speeds will be no more than 10 knots. On Sun, winds will veer out of the SE and increase 10-15 knots. Seas 3-4 feet nearshore and 5 ft offshore Thu, dropping below 5 feet Fri with 2-4 ft Sat-Sun.

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.
