Marine Weather and Tides
8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
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.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Peachtree City GA 235 PM EDT Thu Oct 1 2020
SHORT TERM /Today through Saturday/.
Only notable feature impacting the area today will be a dry cold front that is currently moving south through the CWA. This front is associated with some slightly increased cloud cover and some gusty winds behind the front, but otherwise no real impacts to the area. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the 70s and 80s this afternoon. The front is expected to clear portions of central Georgia late this evening and overnight tonight.
Behind the front, high pressure is expected to filter into the area bringing drier air and and cooler temperatures over the next few days. Overnight temperatures for Friday morning will be in the 40s across northern Georgia with 50s elsewhere. This strong area of high pressure and cooler air will help to decrease temperatures to several degrees below seasonal norms. Clear skies are expected on Friday with high temperatures in the 50s in the mountains with 60s across northern Georgia and low 70s across central Georgia, around 6 to 10 degrees below normal.
LONG TERM /Saturday Night through Wednesday/.
As the weekend rolls in, high pressure and NW flow will remain locked in with temperatures in the mid to low 70s for a majority of the CWA.
The following week is just as exciting. Another high pressure and corresponding dry front will drop out of the plain reinforcing the dry weather and seasonably cool temperatures. This strong high should be enough to steer any tropical formation over the next couple of days away from our area, although there are still plenty of variables and minor changes in timing and location could quickly change the storm track of any emerging tropical cyclone.
At the end of the long term, some of the models are indicating a flattening of the upper level flow allowing winds to become more WSW. The NBM apparently picked up on this nudging temperatures back toward the low 80s for much of our area while keeping precip out of the extended picture.
AVIATION. 18Z Update . VFR conditions should prevail through the period as a dry front moves through the area today. Winds are W to NW this afternoon with gusts less then 20kts. Gusts should diminish overnight with winds staying slightly elevated around 5-8kts overnight. Winds should become more NNW to N for Friday around 6-10kt.
//ATL Confidence . 18Z Update . High confidence on all elements.

Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data.
