Marine Weather and Tides
Erath, 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.

discussion...

little change is seen tonight through Friday as upper level
troughing continues to hold along and east of the area. Daytime
showers and thunderstorms will be on the downswing this evening and
tonight but fire up again on Friday especially across the eastern
area of our county warning area. As we get into the weekend... All
eyes will be on the disturbance over the eastern yucatan which is
expected to move into the southeast gulf late Friday night into
Saturday. NHC continues to monitor this disturbance and believes
this could become a tropical system by late Saturday night. Both
the ECMWF gfs model solutions keep the developing system over the
eastern gulf of mexico mostly through Saturday but then move it a
little north northwest on Sunday. Central and eastern gulf states
will likely see the largest impacts of any developing system.

However... All of the north gulf states will be watching closely
as the system takes shape since tropical systems can be erratic in
the speed and track.

If the system does behaves well, we should begin to see some drier
air working on the west side of the developing system to start next
week. If not... We may stay in a wet weather pattern until the
expected system dissipates and moves away. At this time, and with
current available information... Will go with a drier pattern next
week.

Stay abreast of any tropical weather development by going to

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.
