Marine Weather and Tides
Glencoe, 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.

For the 24 06z TAF issuance.

Aviation
Stratus has been developing near the coast and offshore during the
evening hours. Stratus will continue to develop inland as the
night progresses, with terminals seeing MVFR conditions by
sunrise. Clouds will begin to lift by mid-morning with mainlyVFR
ceilings expected after 24 15z. Winds will also begin to increase
after 24 15z with gusts to around 20 knots.

model guidance remains in generally good agreement on the
evolution of the upper level pattern and associated surface
weather over the next week. Therefore, any changes made to the
previous forecast package were relatively minor.

Another warm and muggy day is expected on Sunday with high
temperatures in the low to mid 90s across the area. With dewpoint
temperatures to remain in the 70s, maximum heat index values of
100-105 degrees can be expected. While these values fall below
heat advisory criteria of 108, those who are particularly
sensitive to the heat should take precautions to avoid heat
illness. Similar to today, there will be the possibility of an
isolated shower or two in the afternoon, but with minimal coverage
expected, kept pops generally "silent", or less than 15 percent.

Little change in the pattern is expected through next week as
ridging aloft remains the dominant upper level feature. Afternoon
highs will continue to be in the lower to middle 90s with corresponding
heat indices between 100 and 105. Heat precautions should be
continued through next week to avoid heat illness. Lows are
expected to remain warm the low to mid 70s inland and mid to upper
70s along the coast. Daily convective coverage should remain
minimal, with 20%-30% pops each afternoon beginning Monday, as
daytime heating allows for convection to develop along the sea
breeze and other mesoscale boundaries that provide forcing for
ascent.

Marine...

high pressure ridging across the northern gulf of mexico will
maintain a light to moderate onshore flow through at least mid-
week with seas ranging from around 2-4 ft nearshore and 3-5 ft
offshore the next few days. The pressure gradient associated with
this area is expected to begin weakening on Tuesday which will
result in decreasing winds and seas during the second half of the
week. Generally fair weather will continue with low rain chances
returning by the latter part of the week.

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.
