Marine Weather and Tides
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.

short term tonight through Monday night ...
continued more of the same with afternoon showers and thunderstorms
cross the area today and Monday. Will also see more low clouds and
fog in the morning with a very weak summertime pattern in place
across the region. The main features across the area continue to be
the large upper level ridge and the weak upper level disturbance
that have been rotating over ga al northern fl and continue to help
enhance diurnally driven convection everyday. The ridge has been
helping to suppress the activity but it is also keeping this weak
pattern in place with no signs of this changing anytime soon. Still
expecting strong storms to develop in the short term with isolated
severe storms as well. The greatest threats will be gusty winds,
frequent lightning, period of heavy rain and small hail.
For those with outdoor activities planned today, stay weather aware.
If you can hear thunder, you are close enough to be struck by
lightning. You should seek shelter if you see lightning or hear
thunder. In addition, heat indices will range from the middle to
upper 90s across much of the state today and Monday. If you plan on
being outdoors for long periods of time, take frequent breaks to
cool off and stay hydrated.
long term Tuesday through Sunday ...
long term period begins with the continued pattern of mid and
upper level ridge firmly entrenched over the area but plenty of
moisture trapped at the low levels under this feature. This
pattern will continue into Wed and the first part of thu
characterized by low to mid range chance pops and mainly a heavy
rain potential as mid levels warm to -5c at 500mb.
Ridge does flatten out a bit into late week as shortwave energy
flows in from the central plains and travels across northern
portions of the tennessee valley. This will allow for a temporary
increase in pops across the northern CWA by Friday afternoon. Main
moisture axis and energy looks to remain north of the area
thereafter and a return to low to mid range sct pops looks in the
Did reload latest long term guidance but left pops largely alone
as they represent above thinking well.
more diurnal convection today and Monday. Ceilings are in the
MVFR toVFR range across the area and will eventually become all
vfr later today. Will see more MVFR and some ifr ceilings move
back in overnight through Mon morning. Ceilings will lift through
Monday afternoon similar to this morning. Winds are expected to be
mainly out of the SW at 8kt or less. Will see some gust to near
20kt in and around any tsra development this afternoon and Monday
afternoon. Vsbys will stayVFR except some brief periods of ifr
vsbys in and around thunderstorms activity.

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.
