Marine Weather and Tides
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.

short term (tonight through Tuesday night)...
light southerly flow develops tonight into Tuesday morning with low
level moisture slow to return. For this reason, will stick to
conservative pops for when an unstable nwly flow pattern develops
late Tuesday night over the southern edwards plateau. The slow return
of dewpoints should lead to below normal mins tonight, then near
normal mins for Tuesday night. In between, abundant Sun Tuesday
should bring above normal maxes. Clouds should increase late Tuesday
night with probably most of the clouds arriving in the mid levels.
Long term (Wednesday through Monday)...
a cold front arrives Wednesday morning and brings enhanced lift to
add to the instability aloft, making for favorable conditions for at
least scattered convection. Typical NW flow events are progressive
and likely to produce hit-and-miss type coverage, especially given
the limited time for moisture to pool. Without a gulf inflow to feed
the lingering NW flow pattern, expect the convection to be mainly|
elevated with showers and weak thunderstorms. By Thursday morning,
the flow aloft becomes dry and stable in advance of a weather NW flow
perturbation bringing a mostly dry front into the area Friday
morning. The weaker front should allow for faster moisture recovery
over the weekend as the pattern becomes zonal aloft. Mostly stable
conditions are expected Saturday with a weak perturbation developing
convection over NRN mexico just to the west of our area during the
day. A persistent SW flow pattern aloft developing into next Monday
should looks to promote orographic convection over mexico with weak
perturbations spilling NE into our forecast area lined with pacific
moisture. This pattern should lead to continued mild weather and
isolated to low chance pops Saturday night into next Monday.

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.
