Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

No major changes needed to be made to the previous forecast.
Increased pops over the gulf waters to reflect current radar
trends. There still will be a slight chance of showers during the
overnight hours across the atlantic waters as well as the east
coast metro areas. More showers and thunderstorms will develop
late Monday morning along the east coast and then begin to push
towards the interior and west coast sections during the afternoon
and early evening hours. Some thunderstorms could become strong
across the interior on Monday afternoon containing heavy rainfall
and gusty winds.

scattered shra tsra over the lake okeechobee and gulf coast
regions forecast to gradually dissipate through 02 utc.VFR with
winds nearly calm overnight. On Monday, expecting atlantic sea
breezes to generate scattered shra vicinity of the east coast
terminals midday. A few tsra also possible, so vcts may need to be
included in later forecasts. Gulf breeze also expected to
generate convection Monday afternoon and vcts mentioned at kapf.
MVFR brief ifr and gusty winds possible with any tsra.

most of the shower and thunderstorm activity that has developed
this afternoon will begin to diminish as the evening progresses. A
low level trough will continue to approach the region tonight.
This could allow for a slight chance of showers during the
overnight hours especially across the east coast metro areas. Low
temperatures tonight will remain in the lower 70s across the
northwestern interior sections to the upper 70s across the east
coast metro areas.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will develop once again on
Monday as deeper moisture moves across south florida right along a
low level trough that will move through the region. These showers
and thunderstorms will most likely develop across the east coast|
areas early in the day, then they will shift more towards the
interior and west coast areas in the afternoon. A few strong
thunderstorms cannot be ruled out especially across interior
sections during the afternoon hours. These storms could contain
heavy rainfall and gusty winds.
Some drier air could start to filter into the area on Tuesday
especially across northern areas. The GFS is starting to come more
in line with the ECMWF which is showing a little bit less dry air
getting into the area, especially farther to the south. Therefore,
the forecast will continue to show a higher chance of showers and
thunderstorms to the south, with a lower chance across northern
areas. Thunderstorm coverage is not expected to be as high during
this time frame due to warmer and drier air aloft. High pressure
will begin to shift off to the east and south into the atlantic
throughout Wednesday and into the end of the week. This will allow
for a gradual increase in moisture across the region as the
upcoming weekend approaches. With the increase in moisture, the
chances of showers and thunderstorms are expected to return to a
more typical june pattern. Temperatures are also expected to be
near june normals with highs in the upper 80s to lower 90s with
typically high humidity levels.
winds will begin to increase out of the east southeast at 10 to 15
knots Monday night into Tuesday across the atlantic waters. After
that time frame, there will be light winds and seas across the
atlantic and gulf waters throughout the rest of the week. The
best chances of showers and thunderstorms will be during the day
on Monday and then the chances will be lower on Tuesday. Winds and
seas could be higher in and around any shower or thunderstorm.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
