Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

after a few mild days and widespread rain, the heat returns late
this week and weekend. Our area is sandwiched between a building
ridge to our west and an inverted trough over south texas. Other
than an isolated storm or two later today over the higher
terrain, most of the area will remain dry. As the upper ridge
strengthens to the west, flow will transition to north-
northwesterly across the area Wednesday into Thursday. Low level
moisture will remain in place while a frontal boundary is expected
to dip south into the area late tomorrow. Forecast models are a
bit muddled on what may happen, but in this type of pattern it is
always possible that storms could form over the higher terrain of
nm and move south into the area during the evenings and overnight.
Storms could also fire along the cold front tomorrow and Thursday
and move into the area. This will be something we have to watch
and if models signal this, rain chances will have to be increased.
Friday into the weekend the upper ridge flattens, but low level flow
turns more westerly. This will bring much lower dewpoints east and
allow temperatures to really shoot up. Highs on Friday look to reach
the century mark across most of the area, while we heat up even
more by the weekend. At this time, a heat advisory will likely be
needed and possibly even a heat warning for some locations. If you
have plans this weekend, make sure you have plenty of water on
hand and take the necessary heat precautions. The storm track will
remain to our north so the forecast will remain dry at this time.
The upper ridge builds back over the region next week, but
southerly flow in the low levels should keep temperatures closer

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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 numerious 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.
