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.

PREV DISCUSSION. /Issued 328 AM EDT Thu Oct 1 2020/
.Thursday Morning Forecast Discussion.
SHORT TERM /Today through Friday/ .
High pressure ridge currently stretches from southern Texas to the Florida Panhandle. A weak, dry front is situated from the eastern Great Lakes back through the lower Mississippi River Valley. This front will move south through the day.
The frontal boundary should move through the northern half of the CWA by the early afternoon. The boundary should continue southward and clear the CWA by late this evening/very early Friday morning. No precip is anticipated along the front. A few clouds are possible and winds should become gusty behind the front and shift more to the northwest.
Strong high pressure will build in behind the weak boundary on Friday. Below normal temps are anticipated for the day Friday with highs ranging from the 50s in the far northeast mountains to upper 60s across the ATL metro to the middle 70s across south central Georgia.
LONG TERM /Friday Night through Wednesday/ .
The long term forecast is expected to be dry, with mostly clear skies and highs mostly in the low- to mid-70s through Tuesday before jumping to the upper-70s to around 80 on Wednesday.
Synoptically, a longwave trough will be stalled over the eastern CONUS, the axis of which will stretched from the Hudson Bay through Alabama. At the start of the long term a stout Canadian high pressure airmass will have surged into the forecast area pushing temps to 4-9 degrees below normal with PWATs under a quarter of an inch. The final shortwave to round the base of the longwave trough before it lifts northeastward should occur on Sunday but doesn't look like it will bring up enough moisture for significant rain chances in the area ahead of another cold front that will push through Sunday night into Monday morning bringing yet another, albeit weaker, surface high pressure system into the region. As the longwave lifts, the Gulf will be open once again for a short time, with PWATS beginning to climb to near 2 inches in the southern portions of the forecast area and rumblings of tropical storms beginning to stir once again in the Gulf north of the Yucatan Peninsula. As that rounds, out the long term period, I won't leave you in suspense: The GFS and ECMWF are both in agreement for another round of high pressure in the back half of next week keeping any tropical disturbances well away from the area. At least for now.
AVIATION. 12Z Update . VFR through the period. A dry front is expected to move through today. Winds will shift more to the NW with frequent gusts between 15-18kt through the late afternoon and evening. Gusts should diminish around 00Z.

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.
