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 Dry conditions will continue into the holiday weekend
and likely through the end of the month. Gusty winds will return
again this weekend as a low pressure system moves north of the
area. Afternoon highs will remain above seasonal normals today
before cooling a few degrees over the weekend then warming back up
Discussion Sunny across most of southern arizona this morning
but that will be changing over the next 12-18 hours as high clouds
push in from the sw. Highs today will be at or slightly warmer
than yesterday with isolated low desert locals briefly touching
triple digits. A little enhancement in afternoon winds but more so
on Saturday as upper low, currently along central california coast
this morning, moves inland next couple of days. Fire weather concerns
for Saturday are addressed in the fire weather section below.
Highs this weekend will be at or slightly below normal. Enjoy
this weekend as the first full weekend of june will be turning
rather hot. More on this in the afternoon discussion.

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. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
