Marine Weather and Tides
Venice, LA

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.

Sounding discussion
The most noticeable changes since the 00z sounding has been a
wind shift below 700mb from a weak northeast component to a weak
southerly component. This weak southerly flow has also moistened
the lower atmosphere as indicated by precipitable water values a
good 0.25 inches higher than yesterday evening, and a lowering of
both the LCL and lfc. Otherwise, the atmosphere is little changed
in the upper levels. A ridge around 500mb is evident by the
backing wind profile aloft, and lapse remain moderately unstable
at around 6.5c km. Given the combination of ample moisture and
ample instability, another day of scattered showers and
thunderstorms is expected. 32

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
