6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

The streak of drier weather and above normal temperatures will
persist through next week. A weak front will bring somewhat cooler
conditions to the area this weekend, though unseasonable warmth
will quickly return next week. In fact, near record warmth will be
possible by the middle of next week and the long holiday weekend.
A positively tilted trough has exited into the cntrl SRN plains this
morning dragging a weak frontal boundary into the forecast area,
albeit in a decaying stage. The bulk of cold advection through the
middle and lower troposphere will be focused over NE arizona with
just a glancing blow further south leading to only a modest reduction
in high temperatures this afternoon. The more pronounced influence
of this front has been a surge of very drier air southward, and more
aggressive reductions in dewpoints and humidity levels were taken for
the remainder of the day. Regardless, still looks like a delightful,
picture perfect weekend for the region.
450 am mst Sat nov 18 2017
latest GFS indicates only weak cold advection at 850 mb today,
essentially a glancing blow of slightly cooler temperatures for
the weekend. However, temperatures will remain several degrees
above normal. In addition to the slightly cooler conditions, model
pwats will drop precipitously today, yielding dewpoints generally
in the teens by this evening across central arizona and into the
single digits Sunday afternoon across southeastern california.
Models remain in excellent agreement next week, depicting gradual
height thickness rises associated with a building ridge across
the intermountain west. This will translate into a warming trend
through late in the week with naefs 500mb heights approaching
records Tuesday-Thursday, particularly in the yuma vicinity.
Latest blended guidance continues to suggest that temperatures
will approach or even exceed daily records by thanksgiving
(phoenix record for nov 23rd is 87 in 1950; and for any
thanksgiving day is 87 on nov 23 1950 and nov 27 2014) and the
official forecast has been adjusted accordingly. Pops remain near
0 percent and it is very likely the long dry stretch will continue
into at least the end of november, which would result in a
meteorological fall without any measurable rainfall at sky harbor
airport (last occurred in 1938).
South-central arizona including kphx, kiwa, and ksdl:
winds this morning will initially be very light and somewhat|
variable, but should increase and come out of a northeasterly
direction by mid morning. Synoptic flow will push winds more out
of the north today as afternoon winds shift out of the northwest
and then slowly work back around out of the northeast for a brief
time this evening. Wind directions will eventually become more
easterly late tonight. Aside from some few to sct high cirrus
later today, skies will remain clear.
Southeast california southwest arizona including kipl and kblh:
very little aviation concerns through the TAF period under mostly
clear skies. Northerly winds this morning will become gusty at
kblh by late morning before gradually decreasing by late this
afternoon. Gusts around 25 kts are likely at kblh while much
lighter winds (aob 10 kts) affect kipl.
Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs.
Monday through Friday:
increasing high pressure aloft will bring warming conditions
through the middle of the week with temperatures reaching into the
middle to upper 80s across the deserts starting Wednesday.
Unusually dry air will also settle into the area through the
middle of the week with a slight boost to moisture by late in the
period. Minimum rh values will fall between 10-15% through
Wednesday and 15-20% for late in the week. Light winds will
dominate for the duration of the forecast.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
