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 today through Monday ...
zonal upper level flow will persist through today but the upper
level ridge beginning to build back in across the region Monday.
This upper level ridge begins to take shape tonight... Strengthening
and becoming centered over central al through 00z tue. This will
turn that zonal flow into more northwesterly flow by Monday evening.
Impulses moving through the upper flow will continue to produce
diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms today and Monday... But
seeing a slight diminishing trend in coverage in the short term.
Only looking for isolated coverage with storms today and Monday but
can not rule out a storm or two becoming severe both days.
Temperatures are expected to be fairly warm today and Monday with
heat index values across east central ga range from 100 to 106. Have
issued a heat advisory for the majority of east central ga today and
will monitor conditions for Monday to see if another one will be
long term Monday night through Saturday ...
long term portion begins with continued subdued pops across the
area as mid level 590 dm high across the area remains the main
feature keeping pops at a minimum. Looking at low end chance pops
for Tue afternoon but things will begin to change into wed. A
shortwave trough moving through the ohio valley will suppress high
to the southwest and allow for some energy to move across
northern sections of the forecast area at time of peak heating
wed afternoon. Plenty of moisture to work with as we see
precipitable water at an inch and a half to an inch and three
quarters. Throw in a cold pool aloft associated with
aforementioned shortwave and we should have no problem seeing
likely pops across the northern tier.
For the remainder of the long term period, mid level high will
try to work its way back into the area but will not be nearly as
firmly entrenched. On the southern periphery of this feature,|
moisture from the tropics will advect in and despite a lack of any
large scale forcing, should see increased pops through the end of
the week, especially for the southern tier. Could certainly make
a case for likely pops for a few of the days toward the end of the
period but for now have capped at 50 percent. Seasonal to
slightly warmer than normal temps will be replaced by below normal
values by Sun with increased clouds and rain chances.
no major changes from 06z TAF issuance.VFR ceilings and no
restrictions to vsbys expected to continue through this taf
period. Will see some afternoon convection but thinking it will be
to isolated to include in the TAF at this time. Will need to
monitor closely this afternoon as shra tsra begins to pop across
the area. Thinking adjustments will be necessary in the prime
heating of the day as storms get started. Winds will stay mainly
out of the W to SW with speeds 10kt or less. May see a few gust to
15-20kt in and around any stronger storms.

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.
