What's New / NOTES
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 upcoming holiday
weekend and likely through the end of the month. Gusty winds will
return again this weekend as a couple of low pressure systems move
north of the area. High temperatures will warm above seasonal
normals later this week before cooling a few degrees this weekend.

Discussion A ridge of high pressure aloft will amplify over the
area through Friday in advance of a low pressure system approaching
the california coast. This will provide the area with more dry
conditions and a slight warming trend. High temperatures will peak
around Friday before the system enters central california. Latest
models track this next system into the great basin region this
weekend, with strong and gusty winds returning as early as Friday
afternoon and more so on Saturday. The system will also help lower
high temperatures a few degrees over the weekend into early next
week.

Aviation Valid through 24 12z.

Clear skies through the forecast period. Winds through mid-morning
generally under 10 kts, then southwest to west winds increasing to
10-20 kts after 23 16z. Winds will diminish again to under 10kts
after 24 03z. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.

Fire weather Lighter winds today through Friday, though still
some afternoon breezes around 15 mph each afternoon. Another low
pressure system will approach our area this weekend bringing another
round of breezy windy conditions on Saturday, with critical fire
weather conditions possible across portions of the area. Some
breezes will continue Sunday and Monday, though not quite as strong
as Saturday. Generally seasonable temperatures through the weekend
with a more significant warming trend possible next week. No
precipitation is expected through the middle of next week.

Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
