Marine Weather and Tides
Panama City, 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.

Near term [through tonight]
Atmosphere dried out quickly this afternoon, with showers and
thunderstorms completely dissipating by sunset. 00z sounding
reflects this drying with precipitable water dropping from 2.18
inches this morning, to 1.39 inches this evening. A shortwave
passing to the north is triggering strong to severe thunderstorms
across eastern mississippi, northern alabama, and central georgia.

However, this activity is expected to wane with the setting sun
and with the departure of the shortwave energy. The remainder of
the nighttime hours should be quiet over the local area, with any
additional showers remaining very isolated.

Prev discussion [731 pm edt]
Short term [Saturday through Sunday night]
In the upper levels a trough will be moving out on Saturday and a
ridge will be building in Saturday night. At the surface
southwesterly flow will be over the region as a low moves from the
midwest to the northeast. The bermuda-azores high remains centered
far from the atlantic coast. Weak high pressure remains over
florida. Daytime pops will be 20 to 30 percent this weekend.

Overnight pops will be less than 20 percent. Skies will be partly
cloudy. Highs will be in the lower 90s. Lows will be in the mid
70s.

Long term [Monday through Friday]
Though high pressure builds into the region late into the weekend, a
backdoor cold front is expected to approach the CWA from the
northeast on Monday. As a result, pops range from 30-50% early next
week. Following the exit of the front, the typical pattern of
diurnal showers will return with seasonal temperatures and slightly
higher pops due to the presence of northwesterly flow. Highs will be
in the mid 90s early in the week, cooling to the low-mid 90s by
Wednesday. Lows will range from the mid-upper 70s.

Aviation
[through 00z Sunday] mainlyVFR conditions are expected to prevail,
but some low ceilings are possible in the early morning hours,
mainly near kvld before becomingVFR at all sites mid morning
Saturday.

Marine
Moderate southwesterly winds will continue through the weekend. Seas
will be 2 to 3 feet through the weekend.

Fire weather
High dispersions are possible this weekend. Patchy fog is possible in
the early morning hours. Otherwise no fire weather concerns.

Hydrology
A wet pattern will return next week. Local rivers are steady or
falling at this time. QPF over the next seven days is 0.75 to 1.75
inches.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
