Ft. Myers Florida - September weather

I am not having much luck finding historical sailing weather for my planned charter.

Thanks.

Hot, humid, windless, with a real good chance of afternoon thunderstorms. Oh, and did I mention hot? Same weather as today, tomorrow, and next week.

But you live in FL, you already know this.

I think the heat is starting to get to me.

See Fort Myers, Florida (FL) Detailed Profile - relocation, real estate, travel, jobs, hospitals, schools, crime, news, sex offenders bottom of the page.

Hot, Rainy (mostly in the mid-afternoons) and little wind--unless of course there a hurricane!

FWIW!

If you call it 'sultry' it feels more exotic!

That is stuff I want but I cannot seem to find the simple stuff. A lot of it is just pages of data, you have to know the bouy # and then it is a page of data. The NOAA site is built for people a lot more search capable than me. Your results page looks great (53 results for historical data out of at least 1,670,000 ) and who could ask for more? My problem is I guess I want too much.
I want something like this,

NOAA Graphical Forecast for Southeast

as a history. You know, instead of moving ahead or back 24hrs, put in a date and see what was. Then step through the days. Easy stuff!!!

I am pretty sure it is out there. I just can't find it.

Average wind speed at

I could not find a pilot chart either.

But since I live 2 hours away I don't really need any info i guess.

I just wanted to know/see historical frontal movements, radar images, and I don't really know what all, for sept. I found rainfall averages for 10yrs - fine (by the way did you know the averages for Sept are around 10-16in and Oct is 2-4in? - and I live here.


LOLOLOLOL

Yea, hot and humid.

It is like the standard summer patterns I know. Hot and humid over half the year - no one sails for half a year??

Sorry, I did not notice it as a link in my rush.

No wonder the "season" starts in Nov.
