Marine Weather and Tides
Dock Junction, GA

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.

Update
The tropical upper-level trough continues to dominate the pattern
for today, with storms being caused to develop along the
northeast florida shoreline in conjunction with daytime heating
and sea breeze development, with precipitation gradually pushing
its way to the west later in the afternoon and evening, largely
falling apart overnight. Probabilities of precipitation have been
adjusted to better reflect the shower patterns that have been
developing this morning, which have been less than was previously
predicted by the models.

High temperatures for the day are expected to reach into the mid
80s inland and in the low 80s, high 70s, along the coast. Main
threats for the day are expected to be the same as in previous
forecasts with gusty winds, possible thunderstorms, and heavy
rainfall.

Aviation
Ifr ceilings in gnv and sgj are expected to lift by late morning,
withVFR conditions for sites being disrupted by the the
development of diurnal storms to the south and along the coast.

Lowered ceilings and visibilities are expected with storm
activity, with conditions improving in late evening, but with
chances of ceilings lowering again overnight.

Marine
Winds will approach caution levels in the near shore
waters this afternoon as the atlantic coast sea breeze pushes
inland. An evening southerly wind surge will bring speeds to near
caution levels over the offshore waters tonight, with seas
offshore remaining at 4 to 5 feet today and tonight. Showers and embedded
thunderstorms will periodically impact our waters through
Thursday. Low pressure will develop near mexico's yucatan
peninsula by late Wednesday and will then move slowly northward
into the central gulf of mexico by Friday. Our local pressure
gradient will begin to tighten on Thursday, with winds approaching
caution levels offshore. Widespread showers and thunderstorms
possible from Friday through memorial day weekend as low pressure
approaches the central gulf coast region. Southeasterly winds will
reach caution level speeds of 15 to 20 knots offshore by Friday,
with speeds near shore approaching caution levels by Friday
evening. Small craft advisory conditions are possible by Saturday
offshore, with caution level wind speeds expected near shore.

Rip currents: moderate risk.

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.
