935 am edt Sun mar 26 2017
For the morning update
A weak u/l trough will push across the region today, with
strong ridging surface and aloft developing in its wake
tonight and Monday. The trough has weakened the mid level
subsidence inversion and has slightly increased deep layer
moisture with pcpw climbing to just over an inch on the tbw
12z sounding. Daytime heating will increase low/mid level
instability and may be sufficient for weak CAPE to develop
with a few showers possible mainly over the interior this
afternoon. If forcing is strong enough along the west coast
sea breeze boundary, a rumble of thunder isn't out of the
question late this afternoon... However will leave mention
out of current zone forecast as probability is low.
Cloud cover quite variable across the forecast area this
morning with mostly cloudy skies along the coast from tampa
to fort myers extending over the southern interior... While
mostly clear skies were being observed across much of the
nature coast. Skies will become partly cloudy across all of
west central and southwest florida by this afternoon with a
slight chance of showers. Continued warm with high
temperatures generally 80 to 85 degrees.
Gulf waters... None.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
