Marine Weather and Tides
Ormond-by-the-Sea, 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.

AMZ400 Synopsis For Altamaha Sound Ga To Flagler Beach Fl Out To 60 Nm- 821 Am Edt Thu May 24 2018
Synopsis.. The axis of atlantic ridging will extend across our local waters today and will then shift eastward on Friday as broad low pressure moves into the southern gulf of mexico. This low is expected to move northward towards the central gulf coast this weekend resulting in increasing southeasterly winds and building seas. Numerous showers and Thunderstorms are expected during the weekend and early next week.

Update Partly cloudy skies expected through the afternoon, with
enough heating to push temperatures up to current forecast highs
in the 85-90 range inland... Mid 80s coast. With moist unstable
environment in place, expecting scattered showers t-storms along
sea breezes... With greatest precip coverage interior SE ga across
central fl peninsula where sea breezes converge late. Light winds
up through 700mb on morning soundings suggest very slow storm
motion, thus potential for locally heavy rainfall that could
produce minor flooding.

Weak low over central ga may aid in greater coverage in late
afternoon across our south-central ga counties.

Aviation GenerallyVFR conditions expected... Except lower
conditions vicinity of scattered to numerous afternoon tsra.

Best chance of tsra well inland... Have tempo group for this at
kvqq and kgnv... With just vcts at other TAF sites for now.

Marine Not much change in forecast as SE winds at 10-15 knots with
seas 2-4 ft will continue through Friday around the periphery of
the WRN atlc ridge. Then as low pressure pushes north through the
eastern gomex over the weekend expect the SE winds to increase to
at least 20 knots with small craft advisory flags, and eventual
speeds wave heights will depend on the strength of the low
pressure system in gomex. Early next week winds become south then
southwest as low pressure passes to the NW of the waters.

Rip currents: with southeast winds at the coast, will continue a
moderate risk of rip currents in the surf zone.

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. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
