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.

SHORT TERM. (This evening through tonight) Issued at 254 PM CST Mon Jan 27 2020
Light fog continues over the far northern portions of the CWA where temperatures are in the 30s. Elsewhere, mostly clear skies have helped temperatures warm into the 50s across much of the area. Fog should redevelop across much of the area tonight, but is not expected to be as dense (could still see some locally dense). Can't rule out some drizzle or freezing drizzle at times tonight.
Lows tonight will be around 31 across most of the area, but a little warmer along the Arkansas Border with lows in the mid 30s.
LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Monday) Issued at 254 PM CST Mon Jan 27 2020
Wintry weather Tuesday into Wednesday is the only real concern in the long term.
A couple pieces of upper level energy will converge Tuesday into Tuesday night, leading to deepening lower-mid level low pressure to the south of the CWA. Models show a surface to 850mb closed low moving from the TX Panhandle to northern LA and southern AR. As a result, precip (rain across most of the area and a wintry mix across the northern CWA) will overspread the area Tuesday. The airmass cools from N to S Tuesday evening and Tuesday night, changing precip to all snow as it does so. The one exception is along the MO/AR border where precip is expected to remain mostly rain or a wintry mix. Currently not expecting mentionable ice or sleet, just rain/snow depending mostly on near surface temperatures. Through 6pm Tuesday, there could be a trace of snow across the far NW CWA, but with warm ground temperatures that should not be too impactful. Going into Tuesday night, lows will generally range from 30-32, which should help limit snowfall accumulations/impacts much of the night. Snowfall exits W to E on Wednesday. The Wednesday morning commute should be when the greatest impacts occur. With temperatures being near freezing, current thinking is that impacts will be limited given light amounts currently forecast.
At this time, expect storm total snow of 0.5-2.0 inches, except nothing to a trace along the AR border. There is still uncertainty with amounts given that precip type is highly dependent on near- surface temperature profiles. Stay tuned to further adjustments.
Otherwise, the rest of the forecast is dry and temperatures will see a warming trend. Highs for Sunday and Monday are forecast to be in the 50s to low 60s.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Tuesday evening) Issued at 525 PM CST Mon Jan 27 2020
VFR flight conditions will prevail into the early to mid evening hours at the terminals. However, fog and low clouds will likely develop from mid evening onward and then persist through the end of the TAF period. IFR ceilings and MVFR to IFR visibilities are expected. The lowest visibilities are expected to remain to the north of the terminals. However, this will have to be watched closely through the evening hours. Rain will move into the region from the southwest Tuesday afternoon and could start to mix with snow to the north of the terminals in the afternoon.

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.
