Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

Short term Tonight through Sunday
an upper ridge continues over the plains this afternoon and will
move east into the midwest tonight. An upper low in the rockies
thisi evening will move east in the progressive flow to the plains
on Saturday. This upper low will stretch from nebraska to north
texas by Saturday afternoon... Then move through arkansas Sunday.
Strong high pressure will continue over the great lakes through the
weekend. This is going to keep the incoming system from texas to the
south of arkansas. Moisture will increase through Saturday across
the state. Rain chances will increase Saturday, especially in the
afternoon. There will be some thunderstorms, mainly south. No severe
weather is expected at this time. The rain will decrease from west
to east Sunday. Lows tonight will be in the mid to upper 40s and
then upper 40s to upper 50s Saturday night. Highs Friday will be in
the mid 60s to lower 70s, then upper 50s to lower 70s on Sunday.
Long term Sunday night through Friday
models continue to advertise an overly progressive pattern with
three separate systems to deal with in the extended period. Models
this afternoon are all in decent agreement synoptically but the
spread between solutions increases as the period progresses with
some significant differences by Friday. Still feel the best course
of action is to blend forecast solutions through the period with a
slight lean towards the somewhat more consistent ecmwf.
Period initiates with the upper low located over eastern arkansas
with the GFS having the center of circulation a little further to
the south than the ecmwf. Surface reflection will be along the gulf
coast along with the associated cold front. Plenty of moisture will
still be wrapping around the upper low Sunday night for a continuing|
chance of generally light showers. The best chances will be over the
east, closest to the center of the low.
Feature will slowly progress east by Monday morning with decreasing
precipitation chances over the west but enough moisture and dynamics
remain for additional showers over primarily the northeast. After a
brief period of drying, another front will move through somewhere in
the mid week time frame with another boundary expected Thursday
night and into Friday.
Model differences are quite apparent with the mid week and end of
the week systems, especially so with the latter. Both timing and
strength of these system require a broadbrush approach to rain
chances. With northwest flow pretty much continuing unabated and a
parade of weather systems, temperatures are expected to remain below

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.
