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.

Synopsis Plenty of moisture and instability will remain in
place to support daily showers and thunderstorms through at least
the middle of the week. Some storms will generate strong winds
and heavy rain. Partial drying from the east may lead to reduced
thunderstorm coverage by the weekend, along with hotter
Discussion Scattered heavy rainers this afternoon and evening
with a few storms getting strong. Very moist atmosphere which is
evident on the 00z tucson sounding with pw value of 1.85". Blended
pw imagery showed large area of pw values between 1.80" to 2"
across pima and santa cruz counties. Much drier air resides over
nm with values in the 1.1" to 1.3" range. Todays activity being
driven by approaching inverted trof, which extended from chihuahua
mx north into new mexico.
Radar at 915 pm showed shower TS activity across western central
pima county moving sw, an area of light to moderate rain across
south central pinal county moving SW and finally a line of showers
and thunderstorms extending from southern greenlee county south
across far eastern cochise county moving w. This eastern area of
activity will continue to move west next several hours but start
to fall apart as it moves into more stable atmosphere across
western graham NW cochise counties left behind after this|
The above mentioned inverted trof will move across the area and
sonora mx Tuesday. Debris clouds hanging around Tuesday will slow
development of storms with the main concern tomorrow evening
being heavy rainers, especially west of tucson.
Aviation Valid through 18 00z.
Isolated to scattered shra tsra through early Tuesday morning and
then once again Tuesday afternoon. Cloud bases 8k-12k ft agl with
sct- bkn clouds above 20k. Winds remain below 12 kts through the

discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather An active weather pattern will continue to produce
showers and thunderstorms, mainly during the afternoon and evening
hours. Toward the middle of the week, a shift begins to take place
bringing in drier air and reducing rain chances. However, isolated
storms could still develop, especially over the higher terrain.
Temperatures also gradually warm through the week. 20-ft winds
remain below 15 mph, although the upper gila river valley will
experience gustier northwesterly winds at times.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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. 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.
