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 Hot and dry conditions are expected through the weekend
with the heat peaking Friday afternoon where we will end up with the
highest temperatures of the year thus far. Typical april afternoon
breezes are expected this weekend into early next week as a dry
weather system passes across the area.
Discussion Rapidly rising upper level heights and low level warm
advection will translate into much warmer temperatures this afternoon
compared to yesterday. High temperatures today will be 12-16 degrees
warmer than Wednesday which puts it 2-4 degrees warmer than average
for april 18th. After a mild night tonight the warming trend will
continue into Friday as the upper level short wave ridge axis passes
across the area. High temperatures will peak about 10 degrees warmer
yet, ranging from the upper 80s in the high eastern desert areas to
the upper 90s in the lower western deserts.
Cooler, but still warmer than average readings are expected Saturday
thanks to an upper level low that will move NE across the region.
This system will be lacking in moisture so no rain is expected but it
will kick up a good southwest wind in the afternoon and trim 6-9
degrees off the high temperature. Some fire weather concerns for
that day and possibly Sunday which is addressed below.
Looking further out into next week, a decent upper trough is expected
to drop SE out of the intermountain region basically down through new
mexico Monday into Tuesday. This trajectory is not good for
precipitation except for a few showers over the white mountains.|
There remains some question as to how deep it is and how far westward
it will be which will primarily affect our temperatures and winds. At
this time took the middle ground with the thought that it could be a
bit cooler than the current forecast.
Aviation Valid through 19 12z.
Mainly skc conditions through the period, though some cirrus above
25k ft msl are possible this afternoon. Variable sfc winds less than
10 kts this morning become ely nely this afternoon at less than 12
kts. Aviation discussion not updated for TAF amendments.
Fire weather Dry conditions and high pressure quickly return to
close out the work week along with a strong warm-up into Friday, when
minimum relative humidity will fall into the single digits. 20-ft
winds with an easterly component mainly less than 15 mph will occur
through Friday as well. Gusty west to southwest winds return area-
wide this weekend, with brief spotty critical fire weather conditions
expected particularly on Saturday across portions of cochise and
santa cruz counties. Slightly more moisture will keep minimum
humidity slightly above 15 percent on Sunday, though 20-ft winds will
once again be borderline critical. Winds early next week will
generally remain under 15 mph.

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.
