Update
The weather is sunny, warm and muggy already on this Wednesday
morning as surface observations and morning visible
satellite imagery show clear skies across west central and

area which will allow for a west coast sea breeze to form up
later this afternoon. Very similiar to yesterday, showers
and storms will develop along the sea breeze boundary this
afternoon with the highest pops (30-60%) expected from the
i-75 corridor eastward. Daytime highs will be well above
average with highs in the low to mid 90's region wide with
heat indices reaching 100-105 degrees. No changes needed to
the forecast at this time.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
