Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

better than average forecast confidence through Saturday night.
Average confidence for Sunday and Sunday night, mainly due to
uncertainty on the southern extent of convective activity Sunday
Convection allowing models and medium range guidance remain
consistent on holding the capping ridge in place, with the main
axis of deep layer moisture oriented northwest of the WFO pah
forecast area even into the overnight hours Saturday night into
Sunday. There is still some wiggle room on the mesoscale and
stormscale level with any outflow generated thunderstorm activity
along the i-64 corridor late Saturday night, but that will likely
have to be addressed on a case by case basis during the next few
The medium range guidance has been backing off on the southern
extent of convection during the day and evening on Sunday. Main
concern is that MCS (mesoscale convective system) generated in the
sharp baroclinic zone over northern eastern mo and central
illinois Saturday night will propagate into the northern half of
the WFO pah forecast area on Sunday, with additional thunderstorm
outflows working closer to the ar tn border. With another minor
impulse (depicted by the gfs) working across the area during the
afternoon, the combination of differential heating and moisture
(from cloud cover and surface temperature dewpoint
discontinuities) may activate the southern most boundary,
generating precipitation over the remainder of the WFO pah
forecast area. For now, will keep the forecast in collaborative
limits with surrounding NWS offices, but this may need to be
monitored for convection on Sunday and Sunday evening.
In previous forecasts, there was some concern that non-
thunderstorm related wind or wind gusts may reach lake wind
advisory levels on Saturday and early next week. The last few
model runs have backed off wind speeds below criteria. However,
plan to keep a mention of at least thunderstorm related wind gust
potential as a secondary hazard on area lakes.
Heat index values will remain below headline thresholds, but did|
post a special weather statement earlier today to highlight the
higher values for the holiday period.

convection will be very close to the northern border of the wfo
pah forecast area on memorial day holiday. As mentioned in the
short term forecast discussion, mesoscale and storm scale
influences could shift the effective baroclinic zone further south
into the forecast area. The most vulnerable area for forecast
adjustments would be near the confluence of the wabash ohio rivers
into southwest indiana and northwest kentucky.
From Monday night into Tuesday, ridging quickly shifted east as a
low quickly ejects out of the western u.S trough and into the
upper midwest on Tuesday. The signal for shower and thunderstorm
activity moving into southeast missouri and southwest illinois
Tuesday night has been consistent the last three days, so plan to
continue the mention of convection through Wednesday and Thursday.
Forecast confidence is much lower for any convective activity due
to the model spread for that time period. This midweek convective
activity should drop temperatures back to normal for this time of

the tafs areVFR. Some mid-level clouds will drift north across
west kentucky this evening, otherwise, just waning cumulus this
evening and redevelopment late Saturday morning. A southerly
breeze will persist through the night, and then pick up and become
gusty with mixing late Saturday morning. Gusts up to around 20kts
will be common over most of the region through the afternoon.
Convection cannot be ruled out Saturday afternoon, mainly at kmvn,
but confidence is much too low to mention at this time.

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.
