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.

short term... Today through Saturday night
the remnants of tropical storm cindy will exit arkansas to the
east this morning. Areas of rain, some heavy, will continue in
eastern sections of the state until the system departs.
While cindy is leaving, and widespread rain will end, a cold
front will push into the region from the northwest by lunchtime.
The front will trigger hit and miss showers and perhaps a few
thunderstorms this afternoon and into the overnight hours.
Precipitation chances this afternoon will encompass much of
the forecast area, with rain confined to the southern half
of the state tonight as the front progresses toward the gulf
Drier air will follow the front on Saturday, with small chances of
showers lingering over the south. All rain will end Saturday
As far as temperatures, readings will be below average across
much of arkansas through the near term.
Long term... Sunday through Thursday
a broad trough will be in place across the eastern u.S. To start the
long term period, with an upper ridge out west. The resulting
northwesterly flow aloft, along with surface high pressure building
southward through the upper midwest, will mean continued below
normal temperatures for much of arkansas on Sunday and even Monday.
There is some hint of rainfall potential in northern arkansas Monday
night as a shortwave enters the eastern trough and slides southeast
through missouri. There is some disagreement on that though so only
have some slight chances in the forecast for that. A warmup will be
seen through the midweek time frame though as the upper pattern
breaks down into a more progressive state, with the western ridge
flattening out and shifting east into the plains. Return flow will
resume in earnest during that time. Temperatures will likely still
hold at below normal values, but hot and humid weather will resume.
Rain chances may enter the forecast again on Thursday or Friday, but
there are some timing differences as one would expect with a low
amplitude and progressive upper pattern.
Lzk watches warnings advisories None.

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.
