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.

UPDATE. Updated for 12Z aviation discussion
AVIATION. 12Z TAF discussion:
VFR conditions will prevail at all terminals through the TAF period. A dry cold front will move through the are today with northerly winds around 7-10kts. A few isolated gusts up to 15kts cannot be ruled out at any given location. /TW/
DISCUSSION. Today and tonight: An amplified synoptic pattern will remain in place with stout ridging across the Great Basin and a downstream mean longwave trough. The CWA will be just west of the trough axis with northwest flow aloft over the Lower Mississippi Valley. A dry cold front dropping out of the Great Plains will move through the area today with dew points dropping into the low 40s by tomorrow morning. High temperatures today will range from the mid to upper 70s north of I- 20 to the low 80s along and south of I-20. Overnight lows will drop into the upper 40s north and low 50s south. The sprawling surface high will remain centered over the Great Plains tonight and as such will keep a tighter pressure gradient in place across the region. Resulting 5-7kt winds will keep the boundary layer mixed and will preclude efficient radiational cooling and colder low temperatures. /TW/
Friday through Wednesday: Broad mid level trough looks to remain over the eastern three fourths of the country through the period with ridge remaining in the west. At the surface, high pressure axis remains across the area. By Saturday, a mid level shortwave and associated surface cold front will move from the central into the Southern Plains. Though surface dewpoints in advance of the front will be in the 50s, enough convergence along the front will lead to shower development over the ArkLaTex Saturday evening. As the shortwave kicks east Sunday, weaker frontal forcing and weaker overall flow in advance will make it difficult for shower development though some slight chances will still exist over the ArkLaMiss Delta region Sunday morning. Beyond that, no appreciable systems look to impact the area as surface high pressure maintains control and keeps higher dewpoints/moisture penned up along the coast./GG/

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.
