Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 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.

Updated to include 00z aviation discussion below.
Vfr conditions and light winds are expected through the period.
Some patchy fog is possible by daybreak in areas that received
rainfall today but coverage shouldn't be too widespread.
Otherwise, terminals could briefly be impacted by isolated ts
activity through the evening hours and again on Saturday.

short term... Tonight through Sunday
data from klzk radar indicate scattered, single convective cells
affecting central and eastern sections of the forecast area,
moving slowly eastward. A weak mid level disturbance moving over
northwest sections of the state appears to be aiding this
activity. Overall intensity of convection has decreased since
initial development. Output from cam type guidance suggests most
of this activity will clear the forecast area by early evening,
although lingering instability will support isolated activity
A decrease in overall coverage of diurnally supported convection
is expected during the rest of the forecast area. Mid level|
heights are expected to slowly increase during the rest of the
period, especially across western sections.
Slightly above normal temperatures will prevail during this
Long term... Sunday night through Friday
long term begins with arkansas on the eastern edge of a ridge of a
ridge as alberto sits in the gulf. Medium range models are in fairly
good agreement with the timing and location of alberto at the start
of the long term... But do begin to diverge from there. Do continue
to think that this ridge will help to keep alberto east of
arkansas... However the NAM is the most aggressive with bringing it
into southeast arkansas. Reluctantly, did include some slight chance
pops in eastern arkansas to account for the nam... And to a lesser
extent the ECMWF solutions, however will continue to watch model
trends and fine tune this in future forecasts.
Models do agree that this low pressure system will depart to the
northeast with a strong upper level ridge building in behind it.
Agree with previous forecast thinking that this will bring the
warmest temperatures of the year. At this far out, did go slightly
below model guidance... However would not be surprised to see
temperatures in the upper 90's towards the end of next week.
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.
