Marine Weather and Tides
Ponce de Leon, 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 today]
East to west oriented deep layer ridging will remain over the region
today. Time-height cross sections show some subsidence drying in the
mid upper levels so widespread deep convection isn't expected. The
mean 1000-700mb flow will be very light, possibly from the northeast
by mid to late afternoon. Thus, look for scattered convection to
develop along the sea breeze and migrate toward the coastal areas
much like we saw on Sunday. Trimmed pops back to 30% for all but the
far eastern big bend (40%) with this regime. The deep layer ridging
and below climo pops means above seasonal temperatures. Highs will
be in the mid to upper 90s with heat indices around 105 degrees.

Short term [tonight through Wednesday]
The mostly dry weather regime we've experienced over most of the
past week will give way to a wetter pattern as an east west ridge
axis across the region will keep moist southerly flow in place
across the region. Deeper moisture across the region will yield more
widespread coverage of showers and thunderstorms each day through
the end of the period, with the highest coverage likely during
the latter portion of the week. Despite the increase in
thunderstorm coverage, temperatures will remain several degrees
above average, with highs in the mid to upper 90s and lows in the
mid to upper 70s.

Long term [Wednesday night through Monday]
A wet and active pattern will continue through the long term period
with the overall synoptic pattern remaining fairly stagnant. Showers
and thunderstorms will be scattered each afternoon, with pops
currently ranging from 40 to 60% each day. Warm temperatures will
persist through the period with highs in the mid 90s and lows in the
mid 70s.

Aviation [through 06z Tuesday]
Vfr conditions will prevail prevail. Scattered afternoon showers and
thunderstorm are expected today which will temporarily cause
MVFR ifr conditions should a storm impact a TAF site. Winds will be
light outside of convection.

Marine
Mainly southerly winds at or below 10 knots will prevail through
midweek before winds become more westerly late in the week. Seas
will range between 1 to 2 feet. Shower and thunderstorm chances will
increase through the week.

Fire weather
Aside from possible low dispersion values this afternoon across
portions of the florida panhandle and big bend, there are no other
fire weather concerns. Chances for wetting rains will become more
widespread from mid week onward.

Hydrology
All area rivers are below action stage at this time. While we will
move into a wetter pattern this week, widespread flooding issues are
not expected due to the expected scattered nature of
thunderstorms.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always
encouraged to safely report significant weather conditions when they
occur by calling the office or tweeting us @nwstallahassee.

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.
