Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

Current forecast in great shape with temperatures headed for the
lower 70s for a large portion of the area to go along with very
dry conditions. Fire danger statement definitely looks on target
and no changes planned there or for the remainder of the forecast.

short term today through Sunday ...
high pressure will move overhead today and tonight, but begin to
shift offshore on Sunday. A frontal boundary will begin to approach
the mississippi river on Sunday, with some light precip breaking out
ahead of the boundary. As the high center shifts offshore, the
surface flow will shift to a more SE S direction, helping to
increase the low level moisture across the outlook area. Even with
the low level moisture increasing, rain chances only remain in the
20 percent or less range.
long term Sunday night through Friday ...
to begin the extended period, the upper-level ridge that was
positioned over the southeastern CONUS will move off to the east and
will be replaced nearly zonal westerly flow aloft. As the surface
high associated with the ridge shifts eastward off the mid-
atlantic coast, southerly flow at the surface will allow for
gradual moisture return to the forecast area. Increasing cloud
coverage will build into the area from NW to SE starting late
Sunday ahead of an approaching positively-tilted trough dropping
southeastward from the ohio valley. Developing vorticity around
the base of the trough will give support to a strengthening
cold front at the surface.
Precipitation will arrive ahead of the cold front and spread from nw
to SE as the front progresses towards the southeastern states on
Monday. Chance pops are thus anticipated to begin across north
georgia Sunday night into Monday morning, followed by likely to low-
end categorical pops across north georgia and high-end chance pops
elsewhere in our area during the daytime Monday. Some instability is
expected throughout the area on Monday afternoon and evening, with
sbcape values in the 500-750 j kg range. As a result, a chance of
thunder is possible during the afternoon evening on Monday. Cold
temperatures at the 700-500 mb layer could contribute to some
enhanced lapse rates aloft. However, forecast shear values appear
to be fairly marginal. As such, the probability of widespread
organized severe weather is low, but it is nonetheless possible to
see some isolated strong to severe thunderstorms as the front
moves through the area. Severe weather potential will continue to
be monitored in advance of this system.
Although the trough axis and associated cold front are expected to
clear the forecast area during the overnight hours late Monday, a
weak upper-level shortwave behind the main trough could lead to some|
additional light showers on Tuesday. Less moisture appears to be
available for thus disturbance to work with than earlier forecast
runs, so pops have been limited to low-end chance during the day
Tuesday. High pressure will return to the area on Wednesday as a
surface high builds southward from east of the appalachians, and
an upper level ridge meanwhile slides eastward over the region.
This will lead to a return to dry conditions on Wednesday, along
with gradual warming each day until the next system approaches the
area by the early part of next weekend.
rh values will be very low today, and range from the upper teens to
20 percent. Have undercut guidance only a little bit today. Winds
remain out of the nnw early this morning, but should go light and
variable during the afternoon as high pressure moves directly
overhead. Winds should switch to the SE overnight as the high center
shifts offshore the eastern seaboard. With the winds shifting to the
se s, low level moisture will increase overnight and Sunday. Have
undercut the guidance a little on Sunday as models tend to moisten
up the column a little too fast. However, as of right now, minrh
values range 27 to 35 percent.
vfr through the period. Nnw winds around 5-6kt through mid
morning. Hi-res models are now progging a brief period of light
east winds during the late morning early afternoon before going
light and variable. Winds should go SE shortly after sunset.
Atl confidence... 12z update...
low-med confidence on wind direction. Speeds will remain 5-6kt or
less. High confidence remaining elements.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
