Synopsis: This morning I am deriving the predictions from a number of sources. Those of you following the weather on SSB will notice that I am not using the TPC forecast of 5:30 this morning but instead I am taking guidance from their forecast of 11:30 pm last night which I feel is much more representative.

There is a trough over the NW Bahamas which will be dissipating today while a ridge begins to build to our S. There is a stationary low over the SE US which will weaken by Wednesday. The ridge will slowly drift N’ward to pass over us late Tuesday or Wednesday. The ridge should stabilize our weather during mid to late week.

Today and tonight, it is likely that the mess over N’ern FL will send us a few scattered showers and t-storms. Winds today should be S to SW at 10 to 15 knots with 3 to 5 foot seas outside. The morning should be only partly cloudy but deteriorating as the day progresses. This will not stop the temperature from reaching 89 degs. with a low tonight of 81 degs. The barometer is 1018.0 mb. or 30.06 in. and steady to falling slightly. The tide will be high at 11:14 and 2.9 feet above datum, low at 5:22, 0.5 feet above datum and high again at 11:25 tonight.

Tomorrow and Wednesday, we should have light S’ly winds with 2 to 4 foot seas. The winds could vary a bit towards the SE as the ridge should be almost directly over us.

On Thursday and Friday, expect light E to SE winds with seas only 2 to 4 feet.

The FL coastal waters forecast from Jupiter Inlet to Ocean Reef out 60 nm. predicts the winds to be S to SW at 5 to 10 knots with seas 2 feet or less through Tuesday night. On Wednesday the winds should remain 5 to 10 knots with seas less than 2 feet but from the S to SE. Thursday and Friday should bring E winds at 10 knots and seas 1 to 3 feet. Scattered showers and t-storms, particularly in the afternoon and evening, should be expected each day.

That beautiful Atlantic is still purring like a kitten with not much but clear skies between here and Africa.
