Florida is not the first place you think of when it comes to rain, showers, thunder, lightning and stormy weather. In fact most people think of it as a fair weather destination for their vacation.
We all know that Florida State is known as the Sunshine State. What is perhaps lesser known by many and that is the very name 'florida' comes from the Spanish for place of flowers or flowery and later this became the name for the Easter day, now traditionally celebrated on 2nd April, when it was first discovered by the Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León way back at the beginning of the 16th Century.
Anyway, enough of history - back to today.
The local weather forecast for today was - mostly cloudy, with a steady temperature around 89 - South wind around 5 mph - Chance of precipitation is 60%. New rainfall amounts of less than a tenth of an inch, except higher amounts possible in thunderstorms.
