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.

Synopsis Seasonal temperatures and light winds are forecast
across the area today then a warming trend will bring the onset
of extreme heat across the desert southwest later in the week.
Short term... Today through Thursday night.
With low pressure over the great basin yesterday and still close
enough to affect temperatures, highs ended up around 6 degrees
Now with the low gone, high pressure currently centered off the
central baja coast is forecast to strengthen and build northward
over the next several days. This will result in a rapid increase
in temperatures across the southwest. Look for temperatures to
warm to near or slightly above normal today, 7-9 degrees above
normal Wednesday and 10-13 degrees above normal on Thursday. Highs
on Thursday are expected to be the warmest of the year so far and
will be within a few degrees of record numbers. An excessive heat
watch was issued to highlight the dangers associated with this
extreme heat. On the plus side, relative humidity will be very low
so moisture will not make conditions more uncomfortable.
Expect light winds and some high clouds today with more light
winds on Wednesday under clear skies. Winds are forecast to
increase Thursday afternoon between 10-20 mph adding a blow dryer
affect to the extreme heat.
Long term Friday through Tuesday.|
Excessive heat looks likely to continue Friday with less dramatic
height falls than previously advertised, and stronger ridging
holding firm across the southwest. This will keep temperatures ~10
degrees above normal, though a bit shy of records in most places. A
weak closed low will push into the central rockies over the weekend,
nudging the strong southwestern high a little further south, but the
net result for our region will only be a few degrees of cooling.
Despite the slight decrease in temps, regional highs will remain 5
to 8 degrees above late june normals.
Aside from the heat, conditions will remain dry and mostly sunny,
with generally light winds through the period. Overall, a fairly
typical pattern for late june.
Aviation For mccarran... Expect light, diurnally driven winds
andVFR conditions through Wednesday.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Winds will be generally light through Wednesday with

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 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.
