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.

short term today through Tuesday ...
forecast concerns in short term period again limited to possible
fire weather danger conditions this afternoon and Tuesday.
Dry conditions still in place during the short term period with
wswly confluent flow over the southern states today. A broad short
wave progged to ride along the southern branch of confluent flow
over the gulf coast tonight and Tuesday with thick clouds and light
precip remaining to our south. Could see a period of thick high
clouds over southern areas Tuesday, but otherwise mostly clear
skies. Diurnal range may be a degree or so higher than forecast by
model blends in this pattern, but verification from yesterday's max
temps indicate most models (other than mav guidance, which was 2 deg
too warm over a large area) did very well.
Potential for fire danger conditions this afternoon and Tuesday
discussed below. Other than that, no weather impacts expected.
long term Tuesday night through Sunday ...
no significant changes to the general trends through the extended
forecast period. Still looking at mainly dry with temperatures near
or slightly below seasonal normals through much of the upcoming work
week. Medium range models continue to bring a compact but fairly
vigorous short wave into the region from the northwest around mid-
week. Still quite a bit of difference in the strength nature of this
wave from model to model, but all are showing the wave weakening
damping out some as it sweeps through. Not a lot of moisture
available with this system either with model precip water values
50-.75 and dropping as the system swings through late Wednesday
or early Thursday. For now I have continued the slight chance pops
across the far north. Warming temperatures expected by the end of
the week and through the weekend. Upper flow pattern becomes more
amplified and progressive with precipitation chances returning by
late Sunday through Monday as an upper trough approaches and
sweeps through the region. Plenty of spread amongst the different|
models concerning the speed timing of this system and I have kept
pops fairly generic and spread out in this period for now.
potential for fire danger conditions this afternoon over most of the
area remains high. Min rh values 22-28pct this afternoon with 20ft
winds NW 8-13mph with gusts 20 mph. Will be issuing another fire
danger statement. Some potential for Tuesday as well with similar rh
and weaker winds. Will defer decision for any fire danger for
Tuesday to later shifts.
vfr conditions expected through the forecast with just a few high
clouds. Sfc winds over all but kcsg will remain NW and increase
to 12-16kts with gusts to 25kts poss from 15z-23z. Winds after
will decrease quickly and become NE after 05z and ene after
sunrise Tuesday and increase to 6-10kts.
Atl confidence... 12z update...
high confidence for all elements.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
