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.

For 00z aviation.
The final convective band associated with tropical depression
cindy has pushed to the i-59 corridor this afternoon. The air
mass is moderately unstable with decent shear and helicity east of
the band to promote a few rotating storms. Because surface winds
have veered more to a southwest direction, the wind flow has
become more unidirectional and lessened the low level directional
shear. This has lessened the tornado threat as the the convective
mode becomes more linear. Heavy rainfall and flash flooding is
still a big concern with this activity. The convective band
should exit east alabama by 6 pm and any remaining counties still
under a tornado watch will likely be cleared. The heavier rainfall
should also be east of the current flash flood watch and it will
be allowed to expire at 7 pm. Even though there is an upstream mcs
over northern arkansas, this system will likely stay west of
alabama as it tracks towards the mississippi river. As the
remnants of cindy pulls off to the northeast towards the mid-
atlantic states, a cold front will get pulled southward tonight
and into extreme north alabama by sunrise Saturday. The presence
of the cold front will keep scattered showers and a few
thunderstorms across north alabama overnight.
00z TAF discussion.
Line of storms moving through the mgm area at 00z issuance.
Toi will see the onset of gusty winds and rain in the next few
hours. Other TAF sites are dealing with lingering light rain and
cigs hovering around the MVFR andVFR border. Expect light rain to|
move out and a break for a few hours tonight ahead of another
round of showers. Unsure of the timing with the next round at this
time, so have prob30 towards the end of the issuance for northern
Cigs could drop during the morning hours after this light rain
moves out, but should lift ahead of next round.
Winds generally 5-10kts, but wouldn't be surprised to see some
isolated gusts. Confidence is low on where the gusty winds will
show up with this departing line of storms, so have not mentioned
it in any specific site.
High rain chances will continue through Saturday with rain chances
decreasing for Sunday and Monday behind a cold front. There are
no fire weather concerns.

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.
