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.

145 pm edt Sat jun 23 2018
Have increased pops to account for developing showers and storms
moving into the area from al. No other changes at this time.
Near term forecast in pretty good shape. Increased pops late
morning and midday over westcentral ga area based on increasing
coverage intensity of convection over northern al ms.
Prev discussion issued 526 am edt Sat jun 23 2018
short term today through Sunday ...
main concern is likelihood and timing of strong svr storms late this
afternoon and evening. Also concerned about excessive heat.
Slow moving upper wave over midwest states with unseasonably strong
westerlies south across southern states including ga... Still in
place. While best severe storm ingredients may remain west of ga
will still be enough CAPE and vertical wind shear for isolated
severe storms late afternoon and evening. Href MLCAPE should be 2000-
2500 j kg, which is less than the 3000 or so we saw yesterday. 0-6km
bulk shear also strong, 25-30kts, with aforementioned westerlies in
place, but low level shear somewhat weak during peak instability
this afternoon, 0-1km SRH only progged around 50-100 m2 s2 by href.
Will likely not see as many severe storms as yesterday with these
values but sufficient for another round of atypical fast-moving
multicell qlcs and brief supercell storms. No strong consensus with
hires models on timing and coverage. Some indication that first
round could go up over middle ga first then subsequent round coming
in from al into north ga. Main threats will be damaging wind but
cant rule out brief weak tornado with any supercell storm or qlcs-
Sunday should see another round of isolated storms but less
instability and much less coverage as upper low continues to slide
east away from the area.
Heat index values likely to exceed advisory criteria in far
southeast counties. Will continue to monitor this as new guidance
long term Sunday night through Friday ...
still not much change in the over all pattern for the next 6
days, but we may be seeing the beginning of a pattern shift by
day 7. North and central ga will stay in west to northwesterly|
upper level flow through Wed thu. This will allow waves and
moisture to continue to move across the area keeping the
southeastern u.S. Convectively active through the period. Still
expecting mainly diurnally driven storms each day as instabilities
peak everyday between 18z-00z across the cwa. The airmass is also
expected to stay fairly moist with pws in the 1.5 to 1.9 inch
range through day 6 7 as well. By Friday it looks like the upper
level flow begins to turn to the NE as a wedge of surface high
pressure build down the eastern seaboard. If this happens we could
see mainly cloudy skies for the Friday Sat with temps dipping a
bit more into the 80s. This is still 7 to 8 days away and do not
have a lot of confidence in this. This is also the first time the
models are showing a possible pattern shift in about a week or
so. As for now will continue with a steady as she GOES approach to
the forecast and keep highs in the lower 90s and chance pops
every afternoon through day 7.
18z update... Should be mostlyVFR this afternoon by but some MVFR
ceilings are developing due to showers and thunderstorms. Some MVFR
stratus possible toward sunrise. Convection should continue to
develop through the evening and diminish later tonight. Winds should
remain on the west side... Occasionally gusty this afternoon.
Expecting overall fewer thunderstorms on Sunday.
atl confidence... 18z update...
medium on ceilings this afternoon and overnight.
High on all other elements.

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.
