Marine Weather and Tides
Belle Fontaine, 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.

455 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018

Near term now through Friday night An upper trof moves slowly
across the eastern states during the period, while an associated
surface low well to the north brings a trailing cold front into the
interior gulf coast states this morning, where it will linger
through tonight. An east-west oriented surface ridge remains in
place over the central northern gulf during the period an promotes a
light southwesterly flow over the forecast area. A series of
shortwaves moving through the base of the upper trof is expected
to lead to convective development along the frontal boundary later
this morning (in addition to current convection over interior
alabama), with the convection then progressing southeastward.

While the bulk of this convection will affect areas north of the
forecast area, do expect scattered showers and storms to advance
into the northern portion of the forecast area this afternoon,
roughly along and north of highway 84. Prior to this and also into
the afternoon hours, will have slight chance pops over much of
the area due to daytime heating and a potential sea breeze.

Isolated showers and storms will be possible this evening well
inland, but otherwise dry conditions follow overnight. Shear
values will not be particularly high, with 0-1 km helicity values
of 100 m2 s2, but MLCAPE values will be up to 2000-2500 with dcape
values up to roughly 1000. Expect some strong storms, with
possible isolated severe storm development, generally along and
north of highway 84 where the best coverage is anticipated. Will
otherwise continue with a moderate risk of rip currents through
tonight, and heat indices this afternoon will range from 100 to
105. 29

Short term Saturday through Sunday night Westerly flow aloft
will lift northward into northern portions of ms al ga Saturday in
the wake of the departing upper level trough. Upper level ridging
will meanwhile rebuild over the northern gulf of mexico and
central gulf coast region Saturday and Saturday night. Short range
model guidance is in good agreement in showing a rather dry deep
layer airmass and increased subsidence across our forecast area
underneath the building ridge axis Saturday, so will leave a dry
forecast intact over most of the region. The exception may be over
far northern and northeastern portions of the forecast area, where
residual moisture on the southern extent of the westerly flow
could result in isolated showers or thunderstorms Saturday. Will
keep a 20% pop in place mainly northeast of a camden, al to
luverne, al line. The upper level ridge of high pressure is
expected to remain oriented across much of the deep south and
southeastern u.S. Sunday, or essentially right across our cwa.

Despite the presence of this feature, moisture convergence along
the seabreeze may result in isolated convection across central and
southern portions of the forecast area Sunday afternoon. The
seasonably hot and humid conditions otherwise persist through the
weekend, with afternoon highs ranging from around 90 near the
coast to the lower to mid 90s inland. Maximum afternoon heat
indices generally range from 100-105 Saturday, and potentially a
little higher between 102-107 on Sunday. 21

Long term Monday through Thursday The upper level ridge of
high pressure will remain centered over the region Monday, but
gradually retrogrades westward toward the mississippi valley
Tuesday. The upper ridge axis becomes dominant over the four
corners region and adjacent plains states Wednesday, then builds
eastward toward the mississippi valley again by Thursday. Subtle
waves in the mid level flow may periodically round the eastern
extent of the ridge axis toward our region next week. Precipitable
water values also gradually trend upward across our forecast area
next week, so expect convection to become more scattered in nature
each afternoon, especially Tuesday through Thursday. Little daily
change in temperatures is expected, so hot and humid conditions
will continue each day through the extended period. 21

Marine A moderate southwesterly flow gradually diminishes through
Tuesday as a ridge of high pressure persists over the northern gulf.

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.
