Marine Weather and Tides
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Near term now through Saturday night Upper level disturbances
will continue to move from west to east over the region in the
base of a large upper trough over the the central and eastern
conus. Meanwhile, a surface ridge from the western atlantic into
the eastern gulf of mexico will shift further east as a weak
surface trough just northwest of the forecast area slips southeast
and settles across the area. High precipitable water values
ranging from 2.0 to 2.25 inches will remain throughout the near
Area radars detecting a cluster of showers with embedded isolated
thunderstorms moving across southeast mississippi and into
southwest alabama. This precipitation is expected to shift slowly
eastward throughout the day today, and expand in coverage
especially this afternoon. Some of the showers and storms will
again capable of producing periods of heavy rainfall, with
additional rainfall amounts up to 3 inches possible, especially
where the more persistent rain bands set up. The additional
rainfall will fall on saturated ground conditions, so any
additional rain may result in flash flooding. As a result, a flash
flood watch remains in effect across much of the area. In addition
to the risk of flash flooding, many area rivers are now in or
will soon go into minor to moderate flood.
Scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will persist overnight
across the entire forecast area. A high rip current risk also
remains in effect along the beaches of alabama and the western
High temperatures today will range from 84 to 89 degrees. Low
temperatures tonight will range from 69 to 74 degrees inland
areas, with mid 70s along the coast. 22
Short term Sunday through Monday night A moist zonal flow
pattern will persist across our forecast area into the day Sunday
as the surface front remains positioned near the coast. The axis
of deep layer moisture will continue to slowly sink southward
across the forecast area along the frontal zone through the day
Sunday, with precipitable water values continuing to average from
around 1.8 inches along and south of the highway 84 to as high as
around 2.2 inches near the immediate coast. Scattered to numerous
showers and thunderstorms will continue to develop over the area
Sunday, with the best coverage expected closer to the coast within
the higher pwat airmass. We will once again need to monitor for
locally heavy rainfall and a continued potential for localized
flooding within the stronger heavier embedded showers and storms
Sunday, particularly near the coast. Short range model guidance is
in general agreement with bringing a considerably drier airmass
southward into central and northern portions of the forecast area
Sunday night, with precipitable water values looking to fall to
0.75" to 1.25" along and north of the highway 84 corridor by early
Monday morning. A zone of deeper moisture still holds close to
the immediate coast. Therefore, we will continue a chance of
showers and storms near the coast, with pops falling to less than
20% farther inland late. Highs on Sunday are forecast to warm into
the mid to upper 80s. Lows Sunday night will be cooler inland
with the arrival of the drier airmass, with readings in the mid to
upper 60s. Lows near the immediate coast and beaches should range
in the lower 70s.
A zonal flow pattern aloft will persist Monday and Monday night as
our forecast area remains on the base of a broad upper level
trough that will encompass much of the eastern conus. A drier
airmass will be in place across most of the forecast area, with|
precipitable water values progged to 1" to 1.25" inland, and 1.25"
to 1.4" near the coast according to the NAM and gfs. The ECMWF is
a little more optimistic with available moisture over southwest al
and into southeast ms, where it is depicting a little more
convective coverage. We will split the difference and forecast
isolated showers and storms over central and southern areas, while
maintaining a low chance of pops over southwestern portions of
the cwa. Convection should decrease with loss of daytime heating
inland, though isolated to scattered showers and storms may
develop near the immediate coast and offshore by Monday night.
Highs Monday should continue to range in the mid to upper 80s,
with lows Monday night cooling into the mid to upper 60s inland
and around 70 to the lower 70s near the immediate coast and
Long term Tuesday through Friday The relatively dry airmass
will hold in place across the forecast area Tuesday, and generally
expect only isolated convective coverage at best over the region
with weak shortwave ridging aloft extending overhead. Deep layer
moisture should surge back northward over the forecast area
Wednesday through Friday as an upper level ridge of high pressure
strengthens over the western atlantic and eastern gulf of mexico.
Precipitable water values improving to 1.75" to 2" Wednesday, and
potentially as high as 2" to 2.25" Thursday and Friday will
support an increasing daily chance of showers and thunderstorms
mid to late in the week, some with locally heavy rainfall
possible. Highs each day should continue to range in the mid to
upper 80s, with morning lows gradually modifying back into the 70s
by late in the week as low level moisture increases over the
Marine Weak high pressure will continue over the eastern and
north central gulf through Sunday then become reinforced by early
next week as drier more stable air moves south over the region,
in the wake of a weakening frontal boundary moving south towards
the coast over the weekend. Showers and thunderstorms are expected
ahead and along the front with the best coverage occurring over
the marine area Sunday into the Monday. 22

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.
