927 am est Thu nov 23 2017
It's starting out to be a cloudy and wet thanksgiving across west
central and southwest florida. The warm front extends across
northern florida with the main low just off the nature coast.
Several storms in the vicinity of the low center and along the cold
front farther south are moving northeast toward the west coast of
florida. Some water spouts have been showing up on radar this
morning over the coastal waters and we will continue to keep a close
eye on these storms as they approach land. High resolution model
guidance shows the showers and storms continuing to push northeast
through early this evening. With all the cloudiness and rain, temps
will be well below average today. Current forecast looks good for
now so not update needed at this time.
Scattered showers will continue to drift northeast through the
morning, with increasing chances of MVFR ceilings and visibilities,
or perhaps some occasional ifr. Rain and thunderstorms chances will
increase through the rest of the day and into Thursday night, with
MVFR ceilings possible at just about any time.
An area of low pressure in the eastern gulf will stretch northeast
through the florida peninsula today and tonight, with scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms. The low will also cause winds to
increase to cautionary levels over the gulf waters, mainly from
around the tampa bay north. Wind speeds will gradually subside
through the day on Friday, as high pressure builds in from the north
and rain chances clear out. High pressure will hold north of the
area through the weekend and into early next week, with winds and
seas expected to remain below headline criteria.

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.
