Marine Weather and Tides
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

SHORT TERM. /This Afternoon/
The morning sfc analysis indicates that our weak sfc front continues to gradually shift SE through the area, extending from near a LLQ/ELD/SHV/JSO/PSN, to just N of a ACT line as of 15Z. Meanwhile, the morning water vapor imagery depicts that the longwave trough axis has shifted E into Ern Ar/Ern LA, with a deep wedge of drier air having advected SSE into the region and Lower MS Valley, with forcing along/ahead of this trough axis expected to remain well E of the area as this trough continues sliding E into the SE CONUS. The short term progs suggests that this weak sfc front will continue to mix SE through much of the region today, although the accompanying H850 trough will lag the front a ways over SW AR/extreme NW LA/adjacent sections of E TX by afternoon. The best PW's (around 1.4 inches) remain primarily over the Srn and Ern sections of Ncntrl LA attm, whereas the air mass remains drier farther W across the remainder of the region, ranging from 1-1.25 inches. While a sct cu field should develop with the increasing diurnal heating by late morning/midday, believe that convection will be harder to come by this afternoon than Sunday, given that the longwave trough axis and accompanying large scale forcing has shifted farther E of the region this morning.
The 12Z NAM has come in dry this morning across the area, in consensus with the 00Z GFS/ECMWF, although the latest HRRR and available 12Z CAMs suggest that very isolated convection will remain possible near and ahead of the front during the afternoon. Have maintained slight chance pops this afternoon for Deep E TX and much of Ncntrl LA, but have trimmed back (and removed) pops farther N closer to the I-20 corridor of E TX/NW LA into SCntrl AR given the CAM ensemble consensus that any isolated convection will remain just to the SSE, diminishing by or shortly after sunset. Did make some minor upwards adjustments to max temps today to account for the slightly warmer 14-15Z temps, despite the areas of AC/cirrus spreading SE into E TX along the backside of the trough, which should gradually thin through the afternoon. With the weak sfc front mixing SE through the remainder of E TX/N LA this afternoon, a reinforcement of drier air will mix back into the region, resulting in below normal RH's and heat indices not much higher than the ambient air temps.
Zone update already out . grids will be available shortly.
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 559 AM CDT Mon Aug 3 2020/
Very isolated, elevated showers in the VCTY of the ELD terminal, otherwise high based cu field and/or low based AC field is filtered across our airspace this morning. A cold front was located near the I-30 Corridor at this time this morning as well and as we go through the day, could see isolated to widely scattered convection develop near and in the vicinity of this boundary. Chances do not warrant a mention however. Otherwise, should see winds come around to the northwest in the wake of the boundary and north to northeast late tonight across our western terminals. Look for increasing mid level cloud cover late tonight across our western terminal airspace as well.

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.
