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 looks to be on track for this morning. Dry
weather with little to no cloud cover still expected for today
with temperatures hovering in the 30s across the north with 40s
expected further south. Will let wind advisory expire as wind
chills in the mountains are starting to rise above criteria.

short term today through Tuesday ...
latest regional temperature analysis shows temperatures continue
to fall across the area with upper teens already quite common
across the northeast mountains. Lower to mid 20s the rule outside
of this area and north of the i20 corridor. Still have some 5
hours left of potential cooling so may need to adjust short term
diurnal curve to reflect this. This should have a bearing wind
chills as well as still seeing gusts in excess of 20 kts across
the northern tier. Seeing numerous values in the single digits and
a few meeting wind chill criteria already. Although should see
further drops in temps, winds should also subside a bit so current
wind chill advisory looks on target.
Not much of a temperature recovery today although it will be
warmer by a few degrees than yesterday and much lighter winds
should allow it to at least feel a bit warmer. Guidance in good
agreement in depiction of upper 30s mountains to around 50 for the
southern tier. Another cold one in store for tonight with lower
20s NE portions and mostly mid to upper 20s elsewhere.
Strong high will shift offshore for Tuesday allowing for a
moisture increase and moderating temps as well. Mid to upper 40s
to mid 50s south by Tuesday afternoon along with slight chance of
light rain developing. Best chances appear to be along west
central portions of the state and will carry 20 pops in the grids
in this region.
Long term Tuesday night through Sunday
The wedge that will bring dew points as low as the mid-teens to the
area will finish eroding through Tuesday night as the high pressure
that originally forced the cold air advection moves off over the
atlantic being replaced by warm and moist, southerly low-level flow.
The result could be a fairly pleasant day on Wednesday, the only day
in the entire forecast period that expected to have above normal
temperatures. Alas, we can't have nice things as rain followed by a
cold front begins to move into the forecast area. It's unsure
exactly when the rain will start to move in but there's higher
confidence that we will see a line of showers and thunderstorms
sweep through the area by Wednesday night, with dry are moving in
behind the cold front on Thursday.
Afterwards, models begin to diverge, but stay in agreement that the
longwave trough which will settle in over the central u.S. Will be
there to stay for a bit. Given how active the long range pattern
looks to be, as more and more shortwaves move through the longwave
trough the less and less reliable model forecasts get. Regardless
both the GFS and euro have the next shortwave kicking through on
Friday morning, but there are difference on if the system will be
dry or could hold snow flurries for far northern georgia.
The final storm system in the extended forecast is progged to move
through the forecast area starting on Sunday. There are differences
on storm evolution and moisture between the euro an gfs, but they
are slowly beginning to come in line with one another. Both have
digging shortwaves moving through the larger scale trough with
surface low pressures developing along the baroclinic gulf coast
boundary (classic for winter storms in this area). The GFS has a
stream of moisture ahead of the storm that could bring some light
snow primarily to NW ga. The euro develops a much deeper storm
system with a more complex evolution with a lot more
moisture and 'wrap-around' precip on the backside of the low-
pressure system on Sunday night which could bring light snow to a
larger portion of the forecast area. It's far too early to nail down
further details with this system as confidence is still low in the
exact scenario that will develop, however, confidence is growing that
we could see at least minor impacts to the area with this system.
vfr conditions to continue for this entire taf
cycle. Wind gusts will gradually subside through this morning and
then shift east during the early afternoon hours.

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.
