Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
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.
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.

A rapid warm-up is expected today ahead of another cold front that
will pass thru the NRN cwfa late thur pm and late thur night across
the SRN areas. Brief post-frontal windy conditions can be expected
between 03z-09z Fri as isallobaric high of 5-9mb 3hr migrates
swd. Stronger winds are expected thru gdp pass where isallobaric
accelerations are forecast to be maximized. There is a decent 85h
thermal gradient along 85h winds of 30kts. Attp will take a more
conservative approach despite the usual recent over-lauded machinations
of MOS at gdp for E wind cases. High temps on Fri will likely be
range bound within 75-80 in most areas. By Sat highs will warm up
3-5 degrees, SE low-level flow and some high clouds will be inhibitive.

By Sun said SE low-level flow will have returned enough moisture
for a modest dryline. GFS does show computed capes 1000-1400 j kg
along 30-40kts of 0-6km shear, a few dryline storms will be
possible. More of the same mon, but dryline will be a little
farther E with SW flow aloft, capes will higher due to better low-
level mstr. By Tue pm dryline will mix E of or very near ern
extent of cwfa. By thur decent agreement that mid-level speed max
will be positioned across the area with dry air even farther e
followed by a cold front thur evening. West of the dryline high
temps will be above normal with Mon probably the warmest day with
boughts of high winds in favored locations of the gdp mtns.

Fire weather
Fire weather concern will 1st increase across SE nm gdp mtns upper
trans pecos on mon, then expand into most of the trans pecos WRN pb
tue and into most all areas wed. Winds mon-wed are not expected to
be too strong, but deep mixing will support generally 15-25 mph type
winds, stronger in gdp mtns as usual. Typically the occurrence of
critical fire weather rapidly ends in later half of apr across the
pb and we have seen a decrease lately, but it will attempt to
make a return next week.

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.

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 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 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.
