Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Forecast is on track with cool temperatures this morning,
gradually increasing under mostly clear skies. Am observing some
mid and high clouds across the region. Anticipate the mid level
decks to erode with mixing while high clouds continue to stream
into the area through much of the day.

short term today through Tuesday ...
have been updating the hourly temperatures tonight as models are
struggling to grasp the overall extent of this unseasonably dry and
cool airmass. Many across the high terrain will wake to
temperatures in the mid 50s.
High pressure will continue to build into the area from the north
and west through the period. This will mean very pleasant conditions
across much of the area through the short term. The front that
crossed the area Sunday night is draped well south of the region
with little to no diurnal convection expected across central ga this
afternoon. Some high clouds will start to filter into the area
throughout the day. However, Monday night into Tuesday, we will
likely see better coverage of cirrus across the region as a series
of weak impulses round an upper level trough. The trough axis will
cross ga late Tuesday afternoon. Given such a dry airmass at the
surface, it will be tough to get enough lift to promote
shower thunderstorm development despite trough. However, those
across the higher terrain may see an isolated shower or thunderstorm
as orographic effects will help with this issue. Also, there may be
enough convergence across the SE portion of the CWA to see diurnal
convection Tuesday afternoon. Either way, the probability is pretty
low, but it is there. Temperatures throughout the period will be
slightly below normal.
long term Tuesday night through Sunday ...
a dry air mass is in place at the start of the period with a
surface ridge centered over the appalachians. The ridge gradually
moves east... And by Thursday the return flow is bringing moisture
back into the state. Models continue to hint at a weak short wave
in the northern gulf by the weekend... And also a front approaching
from the oh valley toward the end of the period. In general we|
remain in a tropical air mass from Thursday and beyond and chance
pops for most areas each day look reasonable.
vfr conditions expected through the TAF period as high pressure
builds into the region from the west. Anticipate some scattered
high clouds through the day. Winds are out of the NW currently,
but will eventually veer to the NE during the morning as mixing
increases. Winds around 8-10kts through the day. The extend of
this wind shift is a bit in question given the placement of the
surface high. As the gradient tightens a bit later in the
afternoon ahead of a mid- level disturbance, this should back the
winds to the NW for the northern TAF sites. We will see skies
clear for the most part during the evening, and then cirrus
filling back in ahead of the aforementioned disturbance.
Atl confidence... 12z update...
moderate confidence of timing duration of the NE wind shift.
Confidence high on all 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.
