Marine Weather and Tides
Laguna Beach, 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.

1001 pm edt Wed jun 20 2018

Near term [through tonight]
Strong convection triggered by boundary conditions across the
eastern big bend is slowly diminishing with the setting sun.

Once this activity ends, only isolated showers are expected
through the remainder of the overnight hours.

Prev discussion [911 pm edt]
Short term [Thursday through Friday night]
The ridge over the southeast will begin to give way as a shortwave
and accompanying cold front pass through. The combination of the
seabreeze and the frontal system will allow for more widespread
showers and thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday. High temperatures
will be in the low-mid 90s, cooling slightly on Friday, and lows
will hover around the mid-70s.

Long term [Saturday through Wednesday]
Deep layer ridging will build back over the region as the northern
stream shortwave lifts northeast. Showers and thunderstorms are
expected each afternoon, with highs climbing into the middle 90s
and lows in the lower 70s.

Aviation
[through 00z Friday] scattered convection will continue to diminish
this evening.VFR conditions are expected to prevail with light
winds.

Marine
Ahead of an approaching cold front, winds will be elevated to
15-20 knots, with seas ranging 2-4 feet. Winds and seas will
decrease following the passage of the front.

Fire weather
No hazardous fire weather conditions are expected over the next few
days.

Hydrology
Widespread rain amounts over the next week are not forecast to be
high enough to cause any flooding concerns.

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.
