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.

High pressure will build across the region this week resulting in a
rapid warming trend with many lower desert communities exceeding
the 110 degree threshold both Thursday and Friday. Some cooling
is anticipated over the weekend as a weak low pressure system
passes north of the region. There are no signs of rainfall through
early next week.
Currently the center of the subtropical ridge is about 200 miles
west of northern baja california. This is resulting in dry north-
northwest flow across the desert southwest. We are presently
sitting under clear skies and temperatures slightly below normal.
Over the next few days, models are in great agreement and show the
anti-cyclone strengthening while it shifts northward and
eastward. As the aforementioned high moves closer to the
southwest u.S. Heights will increase resulting in a warming trend
with the hottest conditions of the year Thursday and Friday. On
Thursday and Friday, the naefs mean 500 mb climatological
percentiles are above the 90th percentile across our cwa, with the
highest percentiles in southwest and southeast california, where
500 mb heights greater than the 99th percentile are forecast (this
is where we expect the warmest temperatures to be, especially on
Friday). The heatrisk continues to indicate a moderate to high
event and areas where the heatrisk is high have been highlighted
under our excessive heat warning on Thursday and Friday.
Operational models have come into better agreement for the weekend,
depicting a separate, but stronger vort MAX dropping southeastward
through the intermountain west. Main impact across our area will be
a cooling trend along with seasonably breezy conditions each
afternoon Friday through Sunday. Early next week, models are in
generally good agreement that the monsoon high will emerge near the
az nm border. This will ultimately mean that the seasonably hot
conditions will return, but pops will remain more or less near 0
South-central arizona including kphx, kiwa, and ksdl and southeast
california southwest arizona including kipl and kblh:|
strong high pressure and dry northwesterly flow aloft to keep skies
mainly clear across the entire region through the TAF period. Winds
to remain mainly on the light side (8 kts or less) through wed.
Winds to mainly favor typical diurnal trends in the greater phoenix
area, a southerly direction at kblh, and a southeasterly direction at
Aviation discussion not updated for amended tafs.
Friday through Tuesday: unseasonably hot weather to persist into
Friday with hotter deserts exceeding the 110 mark before modest
cooling back towards more average late june temperatures returns
over the weekend and early next week. Minimum afternoon humidity
values will fall into the single digits on Friday, then into the 10-
20% range over the weekend and into early next week. Overnight
recoveries will be poor to fair. Gusty winds can be expected from
Friday into Saturday with the passage of a weather disturbance to
the north, but otherwise typical afternoon upslope gustiness will be
common during the period. There are no sign of rain for the
districts through early next week.

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.
