Marine Weather and Tides
Elberta, AL

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 Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
12z issuance... MostlyVFR conditions through 25.12z. Could see a
short period of MVFR CIGS and visibilties in and around isolated
thunderstorms this afternoon and early this evening. Winds will
be mostly southwest at 3 to 5 knots early today increasing to 5 to
10 knots later this morning through early this evening diminishing
to 3 to 5 knots later this evening and overnight. 32 ee

Prev discussion issued 458 am cdt Sun jun 24 2018
near term now through Sunday night ... A broad mid to upper
ridge of high pressure will continue to stretch from the western
atlantic to the north central gulf states and lower ms river
valley and further west through tonight, leading to continued
subsidense in the mid to upper levels of the boundary layer
through tonight. Near the surface high pressure will also continue
to reflect from the western atlantic to the north central gulf
states through tonight leading to more Sun than clouds through
early this evening along with limited coverage of showers and
thunderstorms across the much of the forecast area through
tonight. As mentioned earlier a better surge of low level moisture
generally from the south and southwest is noted with some of the
hi res model data and satellite loops which will lead to the
slightly higher dewpoint temps resulting in higher heat indices
for most areas in the forecast area in the near term. The higher
values will be generally along and south of highway 84 later this
morning through early this evening ranging from 105 to 110 degrees
leading to the issuance of a heat advisory in these areas
beginning around mid morning today continuing through late
afternoon. Any convection that does form today will be short lived
most likely forming ahead and along an advancing seabreeze
boundary moving northward over the forecast area from late this
morning through early this evening. Brief periods of heavy rain
and frequent cloud to ground lightning will accompany most of the
thunderstorms today with gusty straight line winds also possible
with some of the stronger thunderstorms during the mid to late
afternoon hours. With antecedent conditions improving around the
area along with the limited moisture and better subsidence in the
boundary layer we are not really expecting any nuisance or flash
flooding through tonight. Highs today will climb to the middle 90s
for most inland areas and the lower 90s near the immediate coast.

Lows tonight will range from the middle 70s for most inland areas
and the upper 70s to near 80 along the immediate coast. 32 ee
short term Monday through Tuesday night ... A deep layer ridge
of high pressure will remain positioned across the central gulf
coast region Monday into Tuesday. Hot temperatures and high
humidity will continue to impact our forecast area both days, with
potential for continued afternoon heat indices between 105-110
degrees. The heat advisory may need to be extended through early
next week. A moist deep layer airmass with precipitable water
values between 1.8" and 2" will remain in place across our region
underneath the mid level ridge, and we expect the development of
isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms across our region
both afternoons. 21
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... An elongated mid level
ridge of high pressure will continue to extend across much of the
southern u.S. (and across the central gulf coast region) on
Wednesday. Medium range models are then generally in agreement
with building the ridge across the mississippi and tennessee
valleys Thursday and eventually across the tennessee and ohio
valley regions Friday into Saturday. Our forecast area will
generally remain on the southern fringe of the upper level ridge
axis late this week, and the influence of this feature will
continue to promote hot and humid conditions through the end of
the week. Isolated to scattered showers and thunderstorms will
develop Wednesday and Thursday, with the best coverage probably
focused along the seabreeze. Guidance still indicates potential
for a weak upper level low or inverted trough to approach our
eastern zones this weekend. An associated increase in moisture
could bring a little better convective coverage to our region late
in the extended period and will be something to monitor. 21
marine... High pressure will continue over the northern gulf through
mid week. A light to moderate onshore flow mostly during the mid to
late afternoon hours will continue through midweek. A slight chance
for showers and thunderstorms will also continue each day through
the forecast period. 32 ee

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.
