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.

834 pm edt Tue jun 19 2018
Most of the convection this afternoon and evening was confined to the
tampa bay region, with just a few small cells left across our
northern counties, but these will continue to diminish as we lose
heating. For the rest of tonight, the subtropical ridge axis will get
pushed southward a bit, setting up and more onshore flow across the
nature coast. This will allow for a few showers and storms to develop
out over the gulf, possibly making it onshore in a few spots. Dry
conditions can be expected elsewhere until the west coast sea breeze
gets going later in the day. The ongoing forecast has everything
handled quite nicely, so no updates are needed for this evening.
Vfr conditions are expected to prevail through most of the forecast
period. Light and variable winds overnight will shift onshore late
Wednesday morning into the afternoon hours with the sea breeze. This
will lead to isolated showers and thunderstorms starting around
midday and then shifting inland.|
High pressure will remain across the waters through the next several
days, with onshore winds continuing each day. No headlines are
expected, though winds and seas could be briefly higher in any shower
or thunderstorm activity.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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.
