discussion...

broad upper ridging continues to dominate the weather over florida.

This ridge extends from the bahamas westward over florida and into
the gulf of mexico keeping a warm and moist southwest wind flow over
the area. This pattern continues through next Tuesday when the
pattern becomes more zonal over the u.S. On the surface, high
pressure east of the bahamas ridges west over florida and into the
gulf of mexico. This will keep mostly rain-free and unseasonably
warm temperatures over the area through the weekend and into next
week. The next chance of rain will be on Sunday and Monday as a weak
front moves through the area. Temperatures will continue to be well
above normal with mid to upper 80's expected through the weekend. A
slight cool down expected to start next week but still some 4-6
degrees above normal.

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.
