Marine Weather and Tides
Nicholls, 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
Locally... Scattered showers and a few storms continue over the
suwannee valley area while weakening. A few more showers noted in
the offshore waters and near flagler county. Main wx story is
subtropical storm alberto moving erratically this evening over the
northwest caribbean sea. Analysis shows mid level ridge over the
forecast area and so virtually no synoptic forcing overnight but mid
level vort lobe is noted to the east of alberto across the fl
straits expected to lift northward over the weekend.

Will leave in 20-30 percent pops over the west zones this evening
and a low 20 percent pops for the offshore marine waters where a few
showers will be likely overnight. Lows temps will fall to near
70 lower 70s most areas. On Saturday... Isolated to scattered showers
and storms expected to develop... But overall lower coverage of
storms than the past 2 days. Should see some showers develop along
the atlantic sea breeze and inland near weak convergent lines inland
by around 11am-1pm... With most of the activity then focusing inland
area rest of the aftn during peak heating. Highs in the mid 80s for
most part.

Aviation
Vfr will prevail with a brief period of MVFR cig possible overnight
into Saturday morning. A few showers and storm possible for Saturday
at area terminals but low probabilities less than 50 percent so
included vicinity wording at this time.

Marine
Winds are gusty from the south-southeast at coastal areas and have
hoisted scec for nearshore waters. Winds should decrease a bit
overnight down to 10-15 kt and shift to due south or south-
southwest.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
