Update
High pressure ridges over southern florida, while a frontal boundary
extends across northern florida. Morning observations are showing a
drastic temperature and dew point difference between southern ga and
tampa bay. Latest obs are reporting temps in the low to mid 70's
around tampa bay, while farther north temps are in the upper 50's.

Models show this front dissipating and slowly drifting south over
the next 24 hours. Rain chances will be on the low side today with
near average temperatures in the mid 80's. The big weather story
over the next 48 hours will be with an area of low pressure over the
southwest gulf of mexico. The NHC holds chances of tropical cyclone
formation at 80 percent over the next 48 hours. This will likely
begin to impact our weather over west central and southwest florida

the present time.

Vfr conditions expected through the period. Winds will remain light
this morning, then slightly increasing to 5-8 knots with an onshore

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.
