My collection of some of the best hurricane and weather sites around. These have stood the test of time. Beware of weather sites to hurricane information from Florida State University weather dept. In years past, as the storm approached, the access to the public was abruptly cut off about 36 hours before the storm hit! Imagine my surprise! These sites have usually been available throughout the storm period. Again, your experience may vary.
Tide information is here!
(no, not weather, but related... Traffic Cams South Florida)
National Data Buoy Center (south florida) also NDBC WorldWide and of specific interest LONF1 from Long Key, Florida.
Hurricane models at the South Florida Water Management District's tropical storm tracking and prediction unit.
