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.

today, the broad upper level trough, currently located over the
great basin region, will start to drift southeastward as high
pressure aloft continues to strengthen over the desert sw. As this
occurs, the fa will transition to w-nw flow aloft. Meager mid-level
moisture will be present across the region. Thus, will be another
warm and humid day, with high temperatures running just slightly
below seasonal norms. Models indicate that late this afternoon,
storms could develop across eastern nm and drift across the far
nw extreme southern panhandle and southern plains. Confidence is
low on storms forming given the lack of any real forcing. Low
level convergence and the theta-e ridge remain very weak. Have
gone ahead and lowered pops across the NW zones.
Late tomorrow night into Wednesday, the upper low will elongate and
start to drift southeastward into the great plains as the upper high
builds over the socal az border. This will firmly establish NW flow
over the area. Wednesday afternoon through early Thursday, rain
chances increase as a surface front pushes through the tx panhandle.|
Lift from the front and pws of over 1.6 inches will combine over the
rolling plains to create rain shower and thunderstorms. Given mucape
values of a little over 1000 j kg and bulk shear values of close to
25 knots, some storms could become strong with wind gusts and hail.
Models differ on what will happen in wake of wedneday's activity.
Both, the GFS and ecmwf, show a surface backdoor cold front moving
through NE nm, as shortwave energy riding over the upper level
ridging moves across the region. Where the models differ is precip
development for the CWA Thursday afternoon. The GFS is more bullish
and shows convection occurring in NE nm and dropping SE into the
cwa. The ECMWF on the other hand keeps the area dry. Have gone with
a blend of both models and kept very low end pops in for the nwrn
Friday into the the weekend, the flow becomes more zonal as
hot and dry weather with high temperatures creeping towards the
century mark make their return. Next week could bring another round
of storms as a flattened upper level ridge establishes itself over
much southern conus.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
