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.

Short term Today through Saturday night
the main forecast concerns for the short term are the rain chances
and hot temperatures (in the south) today, and of course the long
awaited cool down.
First let's talk about the heat in the south. The front that will
eventually push well into through the state, is still located up
around the missouri border. Convection will focus on and ahead of
this boundary today, which should leave far southern and
southwestern arkansas rain free for the day. I say should because
much like yesterday, outflow boundaries from overnight and
morning convection could manage to spark off some isolated showers
and thunderstorms even in the southern parts of the state.
Mena made it to almost 100 degrees yesterday, and expect that
many places in southern and southwestern arkansas will once again
reach the upper 90s today for highs if they do not see extensive
cloud cover or much in the way of convection. Due to the
uncertainty of realized heat index values and potential presence
of storms and or cloud cover, will hold off on issuing a heat
advisory for those areas.
As far as rainfall is concerned, the central and northern half of
the state will be the focus for convection for much of the day.
However this will shift south as the day GOES on and the
aforementioned frontal boundary begins to pick up some speed on
it's way south. This evening and into the overnight hours will see
the south become the favored place for rainfall, although by that
time convection should begin to weaken. Expected precip amounts
are not overly impressive, but should be enough in many locations
to give the yard a good soak and stay the chore of watering your
Finally, the cool down. While temperatures in the northern half of
the state will be cooler today, the cooler and drier air is still
well north of arkansas. You have to go clear into northern
missouri or therabouts to find dewpoints lower than 70 degrees.
Thus it will be Saturday, and more specifically Saturday evening,
before the significant relief to the heat and humidity arrives.
But it is coming. This weekend will be nice, despite a still warm
day on Saturday. Lows in the 60s, and even some 50s up north, are
still expected Saturday night.
Long term Sunday through Thursday
summer will take a break in the in the extended period. A blocking
pattern is expected, with a ridge of high pressure over the
southwest united states and a large trough of low pressure over the
eastern states. This will result in a northwest wind flow aloft
Given the scenario, the main story will be cooler temperatures.
Readings will be 5 to 10 degrees below average toward the beginning
of the period, and will be closer to seasonal by the end of next
No major weather systems will be forthcoming. Other than a mention
of very spotty precipitation by Thursday, this is a mostly dry

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.
