Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

Updated to include the 00z aviation discussion below...
Expect theVFR conditions to persist through the overnight
period. A weak cold front will push SE through the state on
wed... With some shra possible along this front. Some MVFR CIGS may
be seen with this activity. Winds should remain generally less
than 10 kts sustained.
Prev discussion (issued 247 pm cdt Tue mar 19 2019)
short term... Tonight through Thursday
recent observations indicate generally clear conditions across
the forecast area, with near normal temperatures. Radar and
satellite imagery indicate a number of instances of prescribed
burn activity this afternoon.
An upper trough over the central high plains will move southeast
during the first half of this forecast period. A weak surface
reflection will accompany this energy during the day Wednesday.
Generally light precipitation is expected with this system. The
rainfall is expected to move east of the forecast area by early|
Long term... Thursday night through Tuesday
omega pattern across the western us will be breaking down during the
early portions of the extended term. A number of shortwaves will be
moving thru the area during the term, and eventually resulting in a
more or less zonal pattern by the end of the term.
With several shortwaves approaching the area, the big question is:
will there be enough moisture and or instability to generate
the return flow at the surface will start to get established on
Friday, and there should be enough moisture for some showers with
the disturbance on Saturday. At the moment I have isolated
thunderstorms mentioned in the grids, as it does not look like there
will be enough instability for widespread thunderstorms.
The low level moisture values should increase notably by Monday, as
another disturbance and a surface cold front approach the area.
There are still a lot of uncertainties in my mind regarding the
timing of the front, but I would expect more widespread
thunderstorms with this event.&&
Lzk watches warnings advisories None.

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.
