Marine Weather and Tides
Bardmoor, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
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.

317 pm edt Wed may 23 2018

Short term (tonight-Thursday)
Scattered showers and thunderstorms should continue to
develop over the next few hours, then diminish before
midnight across the area. Skies should clear out overnight
with temperatures falling into the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Scattered storms again expected for Thursday with the
slightly drier air aloft delaying the convection to mainly
the afternoon hours with the highest chances south. Highs
expected to reach into the mid to upper 80s Tuesday
afternoon. Continuing to monitor the potential tropical
system in the NW caribbean and its potential impact across
the local area with heavy rains and possible flooding. Area
rivers that had risen early in the week have all now
subsided below flood stage, but additional rainfall could
cause them to rise above again.

Long term(Thursday night-Wednesday)
The main focus in the long term will be on the trough that
is currently sitting just south of the yucatan peninsula.

Currently NHC is giving this trough a 60 percent chance of
development once it enters the gulf of mexico. Models seem
to be getting into slightly better agreement on where this
system will be heading. Most have landfall somewhere between
eastern louisiana and the panhandle of florida early Sunday
morning. The GFS seems to be one of the outliers, however
the GFS ensemble is more in line with the other models and i
wouldn't be surprised to see the GFS slowly making a jog to
the west in the next couple of days. Strength of the system
is still in question, but no matter what solution you look
at it still means the same thing for us... ..A lot of rain
during the memorial day weekend. However, exact amounts will
vary depending on the track.

A big concern with the extra rain will be flooding concerns
in local low lying areas and along our rivers. The heavy
rain over the past 10 days has made much of the soil
saturated around the area. That means we could see more
runoff and rivers rising a little quicker than what we saw
last week.

Past memorial day weekend most models have the system
stalling somewhere in the southeast. Additional rain will
depend greatly on how strong this system ends up being and
exactly where it decides to sit. Either way we will keep
medium to high pops in the area for the start of next week.

Aviation
Vfr conditions this afternoon, with showers and
thunderstorms developing over the next hour or so. Expecting
a sea breeze to develop at the northern coastal terminals
over the next hour or two as well, otherwise E SE flow
prevails, becoming light overnight.

Marine
High pressure will continue to ridge across the waters
through the end of the week. The trough will then lift
into the gulf for the weekend. Will continue to monitor this
system for possible development and track. At this point in
time, the only expected impacts are the increased shower
and thunderstorm activity across the waters and scec to sca
winds possible.

Fire weather
No concerns.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
