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 overhead will drift east over the next couple of
days. Subtropical moisture will return by the end of the week
with increased chances of thunderstorms. Dry weather returns
across the region by Sunday.
Very warm temperatures occurred once again today and are expected
to only get hotter over the next couple of days. We will be very
close to heat advisory levels tomorrow through Friday as a large
upper level ridge of high pressure will dominate the regions
weather. However, we will see decent overnight temperature
recoveries and cooling conditions across the region that will
prevent advisory conditions.
Smoke from the ferguson fire in mariposa county has created very
low visibility in and around yosemite national park. Winds are
light and terrain driven and a strong inversion is holding the
smoke near the surface longer during the day. Visible satellite
data is indicating the smoke is edging its way south along the
east side of the sjv. A cautionary statement has been issued by
the sjvapcd. We are encouraging people to remain indoors if you
High pressure ridge will drift east by Wednesday and will open the|
door for the return of subtropical moisture to the region. Model
guidance is advertising showers and thunderstorms to become more
widespread across the kern county mountains and desert region as
well as the sierra nevada. Unsettled weather is expected the
through Saturday with some storms producing locally heavy
rainfall, as pwats will be over 1 inch by Wednesday and continue
The ridge will build back in over the region by Sunday and
continue into Monday with very hot temperatures returning to the
area. Dry conditions will also return by the later part of the
weekend as the upper ridge builds westward.
Areas of MVFR visibility in smoke in the vicinity of the ferguson
fire in mariposa county. Otherwise,VFR conditions will prevail
across the central ca interior during the next 24 hours.

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.

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.
