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.

Vfr prevails through the period with clear skies and northwesterly
surface winds. Some uptick of windspeeds by the afternoon hours, but
sustatined speeds remain under 10 kts. Winds become light and
variable or calm after 00z.

short term... Tonight through Monday
the better convection will push out of ar this evening, while
stratus cloud ceilings filter in this afternoon to evening, then
are expected to thin tonight. Winds will remain elevated this
afternoon to evening, then gradually lower tonight. Dry tonight
with lows dropping to the mid 30s to lower 40s. Mostly sunny
conditions with much lower winds will be seen on Sunday as the
high pressure system builds in the region. Highs will be much
cooler with mostly the 50s forecast. Sunday night, clear, dry and
cold with lows in the 30s. Continued dry with mostly sunny
conditions for Monday, with highs remaining below normal with the
50s to lower 60s expected.
Long term... Monday night through Saturday
the long term period starts off with amplified ridging along the
west coast and strong downstream troughing, nearly centered over
arkansas. A shortwave just upstream will dig even farther in
response to strong jet dynamics and an amplifying upper level
ridge to our west. At the surface, cold high pressure was located|
in the eastern conus. Southerly flow will gradually increase
through the day on Tuesday in response to a strengthening pressure
gradient from the aforementioned shortwave. Temperatures on
Tuesday will be slightly warmer than previous days, but still near
average for mid-november.
A strong cold front will push through Tuesday afternoon into the
early overnight hours. Even with southerly flow, moisture will be
very limited with this system (pwat <0.75"), resulting in little
to no precipitation. Have kept pops below mention threshold.
Beginning Wednesday, global models start to diverge pretty
significantly. Fortunately for arkansas, the model differences are
relatively negligible for the CWA most days (maybe not so true on
the coasts). We will remain in a mostly northwest and dry cool
flow aloft, with temperatures below normal mid-week into the start
of the weekend. The most notable difference is Thursday, as the
12z euro solution warms much of the area into the 60s, while the
gfs and canadian solutions keeps us 5-10 degrees cooler. Due to
the run-by-run flip-flop of the euro, have sided much closer to
the latter two.
A warming trend is likely to begin at the end of the upcoming work
week into next weekend before another cold front moves through the
region Saturday evening into Sunday.
Lzk watches warnings advisories None.

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.
