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 236 PM CDT Sun Apr 5 2020
SHORT TERM. Tonight Through Tuesday
The short term portion of the forecast remains largely unchanged this afternoon. At the surface, ridging to the north of the area will begin to shift eastward. As this happens, srly flow will return and the stalled boundary to the south will lift north as a warm front.
At the H500 level, high pressure will expand over the area with the ridge in place across the Gulf of Mexico. Temperatures will begin to warm through the period, with quite a few temps in the 80s F expected Tuesday. Occasional chances for showers and thunderstorms will persist as embedded shortwave energy traverses the state in the zonal to swrly flow aloft. Overall, rainfall amounts are expected to be fairly low.
LONG TERM. Tuesday Night Through Sunday
Not much change in the long term, with a split flow to begin the period. The northern branch of jet will drive a cold front toward the region, but that will not get here until Wednesday night. Until the front arrives, it will be dry and very warm. The front will trigger scattered showers and thunderstorms when it goes through, and then it will be cooler. However, it will remain unsettled due to the southern stream of the jet and a large storm system over the southwest United States.
Initially, the system will be cutoff, but will start ejecting toward the middle of the country Thursday/Friday. Ahead of the system, chances for precipitation will continue, but it will be nothing widespread/organized. Models differ on the strength of the system once it gets here, and this will determine whether we have anything significant/impactful toward the end of the week. Because we are somewhat cool when the system arrives, this would imply that the system goes south of Arkansas which would take any severe weather along the Gulf Coast. The heaviest rain would probably stay to the south as well, leaving us with less than an inch of precipitation overall.
Once the system goes by, another cold front will visit from the Plains, and this will keep us cool behind the end of the period. Given the pattern, would not be surprised if a freeze occurs in parts of the Ozarks in the middle of the month.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
