Marine Weather and Tides
Violet, 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.

area forecast discussion
national weather service new orleans la
422 am cdt Thu jun 21 2018

Short term
Plume of moisture will continue to stretch to the NE ahead of a
cold front currently moving through nebraska and oklahoma. The
moisture will get forced to the east into the northwestern
sections of the area later this morning. Activity today will be
moving rather quickly. Temps should remain stable where the dense
cloud cover remains through the day. Ongoing forecast already
shows all thes attributes, so only cosmetic changes have been made
to much of the short term. The ridge to the east will be stubborn
to give way and as the sh TS move into it, they will begin to
weaken and dissipate later today.

Mainly dry for the next several days as that ridge will become
more dominant. The convective temp will fall back a bit today and
this could give rise to some noctunal sh TS near the coast tonight
and possibly the next few nights. But during the coming days, the
heat will begin again.

Aviation
ExpectVFR to MVFR conditions to prevail throughout the TAF period.

Showers and thunderstorms will be possible at every terminal today
and that is reflected in tafs this morning. Vis and CIGS may be
reduced during showers and storms. Expect conditions to improve this
evening. 13 mh

Marine
High pressure remains just off to the east of the coastal waters.

This will keep onshore flow over the area for the remainder of the
week. Expect wind to remain less the 15 knots through the forecast
period. Seas will also stay at 3 feet or less through the remainder
of the week.

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.
