discussion...

a strong upper high east of the bahamas continues to ridge west 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 conditions and unseasonably warm temperatures over
the area through the weekend and into next week. The next chance of
rain will be on Tuesday and Wednesday as a weak front stalls over
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 3-5 degrees above normal.

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.
