Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service little rock ar
600 am cdt Sat mar 17 2018
Updated to include the 12z aviation discussion below...
Some patchy fog and low CIGS are ongoing across portions of the
area early this morning... Mainly over the ERN and sern sections of
the area. Do think primarilyVFR conditions will be seen by this
afternoon... With rain chances limited. Chances for shra tsra
return late this evening and overnight across the SRN sections of
the area... With primarily vcsh vcts mentioned at this time.
Prev discussion (issued 319 am cdt Sat mar 17 2018)
short term... Today through Sunday night
dry conditions are ongoing across the state early this sat
morning... With all precip NE of the state in WRN ky and tn. A large
moisture gradient exists across the CWA as a dryline front has moved
east into portions of the cwa. Dewpts across WRN sections of the
state are in the 20s and 30... While along and east of this boundary
located from near bpk to east of cca... West of lit... To near
cdh... Show dewpts in the 50s and 60s. Some patchy fog has developed
along this boundary... With some reports of dense fog observed.
However... This dense fog has been fairly isolated... So no plans for
an adv at this time.
With upper level ridging developing over the state later this sat
afternoon... The frontal boundary will become stalled over portions
of the state... Mainly becoming an E W oriented boundary across the
srn third of ar. Temps will again be warm... With highs in the 70s to
near 80 across the south... And in the upper 50s to mid 60s across
the north well north of this boundary. Precip chances should remain
limited due to the upper level ridging.
By late tonight... An upper disturbance will rotate over the ridge
aloft... With the boundary expected to remain over SRN sections of
the state. Chances for shra tsra will increase with this
disturbance... With the best chances for precip over the SRN third of|
the state through sunrise sun. Another upper disturbance will lift
ne over the state by Sun afternoon... Though the sfc boundary will
likely move very little. As a result... The best chances for seeing
precip will be across the SRN sern sections of the state along this
boundary... And in addition to over nwrn sections of the area under
the stronger portion of the upper disturbance Sun afternoon evening.
Some strong to svr storms may be seen with this activity... With the
best potential for seeing any svr wx across the swrn SRN sections of
the state near and just north of the stalled sfc boundary. Looks
like the primary hazard expected with the strongest storms will be
large hail as sfc based storms are not expected.
Long term... Monday through Friday
at the beginning of the period, occluding surface low and associated
frontal boundaries will be moving through the state during the day.
With the system occluding, there will not be much of a chance for
the warm sector to expand and for things to destabilize. So, while
there will be a chance for showers storms, it should be coming to an
end fairly quickly during the day as drier air sweeps in behind the
Winds on Monday will be elevated as the gradient will be fairly
tight around the low. Couple this with minimum afternoon humidity in
in the 30th percentile (or less), and we will be dealing with
increased fire danger.
Monday night and Tuesday, colder air will move into arkansas as
northwest flow sets up. With several weak systems moving through in
the mean flow, there will be continued cloud cover and slight rain
chances, primarily in the north.
Surface high pressure will pass through the region mid to late week,
with return flow setting up. Temperatures will warm and moisture
will increase by Friday, as another storm system approaches
Lzk watches warnings advisories None.

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.
