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 /Rest of today through Monday Night/.
Tricky near term fcst as the persistent MCS propagating southward across Alabama continues to stay just west of the CWA boundary and has primarily allowed the lofted mid/upper cloud shield to extend across north GA so far limiting diurnal destabilization. While this complex should follow along the tight instability axis still west of the area, the leading edge and outflow could aid its environment and end up pushing into western portions of central GA late this afternoon into evening. Also watching possible isolated convective development behind this system later this evening as the upper wave axis traverses the area mainly in the 00-06z period and holding onto some chance pops accordingly but uncertainty remains high. Any residual moisture from the MCS could end up advecting in some lower stratus or possible fog into parts of the western CWA for Monday morning with the light low level westerly fetch so will need to monitor evening trends as well.
Monday looks less impactful as the enhanced moisture and aforementioned shortwave axis will allow some slight to chance pops more confined to southern and eastern portions of central GA, otherwise isolated chance for orographically enhanced convection in the northeast mtns and rest of area should remain dry under NW ridging.
Temps thru period should remain right near climo norms and expecting highs Monday generally in low 90s north to mid 90s south.
LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/.
Upper level ridging will slowly build eastward into the Tennessee Valley through the long term periods. A weak surface boundary will linger over portions of central and south Georgia through mid week but will have limited moisture to work with. This pattern will lend itself to isolated to scattered diurnally driven showers and thunderstorms through the work week with afternoon highs in the 90s across much of the area, with mid to upper 90s across a large portion of the forecast area Tuesday through Friday. Heat indices will be near 100 across portions of north GA with 100-105 across central GA through next weekend. Although long term models are in pretty good agreement, GFS continues to trend toward a wetter pattern Thursday and beyond, with POPs likely on Sunday.
AVIATION. 18Z Update . Initial VFR conditions with possible few cu 4-6 kft and some mid/upper level cigs from cloud shield of convective complex pushing southward across Alabama. Think most storm activity should stay west of the sites except for perhaps CSG after about 20/21z but will carry VCSH and tempo SHRA for near ATL. Cannot rule out some evening isolated development with main upper wave axis but confidence still low on and will monitor trends. Some MVFR cigs could flirt with sites near ATL and CSG Monday morning but greater chance for CSG. Winds mainly NW to SW 5-8 kts with 3-5 kts overnight (calm in south). Precip chances too low for Monday so just mainly SCT cu 4-6 kft.
//ATL Confidence . 18Z Update . Low on shower/storm potential this afternoon and evening. High on all else.

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.
