Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

Synopsis Expect well above normal high temperatures Monday and
especially Tuesday before temperatures return closer to seasonal
normals latter in the upcoming week. Otherwise, dry conditions
persist except for a slight chance of showers next Saturday mainly
near the white mountains.
Discussion Upper ridge will amplify Sunday over the great basin
with additional upper ridge amplification over the intermountain
west and the southwestern CONUS on Monday. Aside from some mostly
cirriform clouds, the main impact on southeast arizona will be a
pronounced warming trend by Monday. The flow aloft by Tuesday will
become increasingly southwesterly as the ridge axis moves eastward
into the central conus, and in response to a deepening trough near
the west coast.
Various 23 12z models remained consistent versus previous solutions
with depicting additional warming across this forecast area on
Tuesday. High temps on Tuesday were virtually unchanged versus the
inherited forecast. Thus, daytime temps Tuesday will be well above
seasonal normals, and lower desert locales including the tucson
metro area should encroach upon 90 degrees. A potential issue is
regarding amount and thickness of mostly cirriform clouds to move
across the area.
At any rate, some minor cooling is on tap Wednesday before daytime
temps cool closer to seasonal normals by Thursday as an upper trough
develops north of the area. Generally zonal flow aloft should
maintain dry conditions area-wide next Friday. Thereafter, there
were differences between the gfs ECMWF and their respective
ensembles next Saturday. The GFS depicting a deepening upper trough|
over the intermountain west and the southwestern conus, and kept a
mean trough axis west of the area.
Meanwhile, the ECMWF was further east with the upper trough
position, or generally over the central CONUS plains and the
southern rockies, including new mexico. Have noted that the
gfs ECMWF keep the bulk of measurable precip north-to-east of this
forecast area. Per coordination with neighboring wfo's, have opted
for a slight chance of showers next Saturday near the white
mountains. Otherwise, dry conditions during the latter part of the
upcoming week and early next weekend.
Aviation Valid through 25 00z.
Sfc winds generally less than 12 kts through the period, except for
a few gusts around 20 kts along the international border during the
afternoon.VFR conditions with only cirrus clouds expected. Aviation
discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Dry weather persists aside from a slight chance of
showers in the white mountains next Saturday. A warming trend will
send daytime temperatures well above normal Monday through
Wednesday. 20-foot winds remain fairly light until Wednesday and
Thursday as a weather system passes to our north. This produces
southwesterly to westerly winds of 10-20 mph during the afternoon
and cooler temperatures toward the end of the work week.
Twc watches warnings advisories None.

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.
