Discussion
Mid level troughing over the central u.S. Moves eastward over the
next 48 hours. The base of the trough moves over florida by Thursday
morning. The upper low and associated troughing moves over the
northeast u.S. As ridging builds in the area from the west through
the weekend. On the surface, the front has drifted south while high
pressure builds in over the east coast and ridges southwest over
florida and into the gulf of mexico. This will bring in decreasing
rain chances and pleasant weather for the remainder of the week and
into the weekend. High temps will be in the low to mid 70's with
overnight lows in the mid to upper 50's.

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.
