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.

Update Updated aviation discussion.
Temperatures closer to seasonal normals will prevail through Monday
as high pressure has temporarily weakened. However, another warmup
will quickly materialize through the middle of the week with high
temperatures forecast to be near 110 degrees across the lower
deserts. A dry weather pattern will continue through late in the
week as richer moisture remains fixed into mexico.
The goes-16 visible channel reveals another cloudless day across
arizona. At this time, a progressive upper level low continues to
pass by to our north as it encroaches closer to the central plains.
This system has suppressed the high pressure ridge that has been
over our region the last several days, lowering atmospheric
heights over the area and serving well to knock temperatures down
a few degrees. Most places are running slightly cooler compared
to this time yesterday, except for yuma and EL centro, where the
very moist shallow low-level air from yesterday has retreated
somewhat in favor of more seasonal conditions. Most desert
locations will see the 103-106 degree range by this afternoon.
There is not much of a change to the overall forecast or synoptic
pattern. The high pressure ridge will rebound with h5 heights
climbing into the 590-595 dm range by midweek which will be
favorable for the hot temperatures to return. Forecast highs
peak by Tuesday Wednesday with the most unfortunate locations,
including the phoenix area, warming upwards of 110 degrees. There
are indications of a weak gulf surge for yuma and the imperial
valley early Monday, although this event is not likely to match
the surge experienced on Saturday, with dew points for yuma and el
centro peaking at 55-60 degrees. Otherwise, there is not much
moisture to talk about as dew points will then drop through the|
period. In short, this looks like a typical hot week in late june
for arizona and southeast california.
South-central arizona including kphx, kiwa, and ksdl and southeast
california southwest arizona including kipl and kblh:
no aviation concerns through the TAF period. Wind shifts will be
similar to what we've seen the past 24 hours with speeds mainly
aob 10 kts. Similar to today, sporadic gusts in the teens will be
possible tomorrow afternoon and early evening. Skies will be
Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs.
Wednesday through Sunday:
temperatures will remain above normal through the week before
cooling slightly closer to seasonal normal values by the weekend.
Minimum relative humidity values will plummet into the single
digits each afternoon and recovering only into 20-25% range
overnight. The winds should remain fairly light, outside of some
afternoon gusts, and follow typical diurnal patterns.
Unfortunately, there is no sign of any rain chances through this

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.
