Marine Weather and Tides
Tampa, 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.

Update
Similar to last night at this time deep tropical moisture
(pw's close to 2 inches) continues to stream into the
forecast area on a deep layered southeast to southerly wind
flow between high pressure over the atlantic and a trough
of low pressure over the east central gulf of mexico. The
afternoon convection is now on the wane with loss of daytime
heating with just some lingering showers and storms noted on
88d returns along the coast from pinellas county north to
cedar key, with mainly cloudy skies but dry conditions being
observed elsewhere.

As for the rest of tonight am expecting mainly rain free
conditions once the ongoing convection ends, however with
abundant moisture in place and a divergent flow aloft some
additional shower development will be possible at any time
overnight, so will maintain pops in the 20 to 30 percent
range. Mild and muggy conditions will continue with overnight
lows falling to around 70. The ongoing forecast has a good
handle on things with no evening update required at this
time.

On Tuesday abundant moisture will keep rain chances high
across the region with more scattered to numerous showers
and isolated storms expected along with the threat of some
locally heavy rainfall in some locations.

Aviation
MVFR ifr CIGS vsbys from shra tsra will continue to impact
ktpa, kpie, and ksrq terminals until 03z. After 03z mainly
vfr is expected at all area terminals overnight into early
Tuesday morning with CIGS in the 035-050 kft range. After
15z additional MVFR ifr CIGS and vsbys will begin to impact
the terminals again as scattered to numerous shra and isolated
tsra redevelop over the region. East to southeast winds at
6 to 8 knots will prevail with higher gusts possible in the
vicinity of tsra.

Marine
Southeast to south winds in the 10 to 15 knot range near
shore and around 15 knots offshore with seas of 2 to 3 feet
will continue over the gulf waters the remainder of tonight
with deep layered moisture supporting scattered showers and
isolated storms. The current forecast is on track with no
changes expected in the next update around 9 pm.

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.
