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.

Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Little Rock AR 620 PM CDT Sat May 30 2020
AVIATION. High pressure continues over the area this evening. Some cirrus will pass over the area and winds will be light through the period. VFR conditions will continue.
PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 253 PM CDT Sat May 30 2020) SHORT TERM . Tonight Through Monday Not much going on in the short term, as high pressure will remain in control. For us, this will mean little in the way of cloud cover, and temperatures close to or a little below average.
LONG TERM . Monday Night Through Saturday Quiet weather should be ongoing to start the period. Aloft, large scale ridging will be in place across the C plains. Two areas of troughing will be located off the CA coast and off the New England coast, respectively. At the surface, high pressure will be centered over the Appalachian Mtns. AR will reside beneath SW flow around the aforementioned high. Warm humid air will continually advect into the region replacing dry and cooler air at the surface from the short term period.
On Tuesday, an upper compact low is expected to lift Nwrd out of MX into the Srn plains. This compact low will move into a less favorable environment and within a large area of weak steering flow. The energy from this system will pinwheel around the periphery of the surface high, affecting mainly Wrn AR initially.
By Wednesday, a few showers and isolated thunderstorms will be possible over portions of Wrn AR. Ern AR will remain under the influence of high pressure and thus temperatures should be higher across Ern and SErn AR. The upper low will fizzle out just NW of AR, however upper level shortwave energy is expected to interact with residual moisture to trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms across a larger portion of the state on Thursday afternoon. This activity is expected linger into early Friday before NW flow brings precip to an end.
Temperatures through mid week will be warm, with readings in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Added clouds will hold temperatures down slightly on Wednesday and Thursday but heat index values will likely range from the lower 90s to near 100 degrees. Much uncertainty exists with how widespread or scattered showers and thunderstorms become. The upper level ridge and surface high to our E will serve to suppress convection, possibly limiting coverage.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
