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.

Synopsis A building area of high pressure along the west coast
will provide dry weather and warmer temperatures the rest of the
week. However, expect periods of north winds at times, especially
within the colorado river valley.
Update A few high clouds continue to linger this evening. We are
watching a piece of upper-level energy ride the ridge into our area.
The forecast is still on track for this piece of energy to bring
with it a slight enhancement in northwesterly winds across the
region through the overnight hours tonight and lasting through
much of the day tomorrow. No changes were made to the forecast.

Short term Today through Friday.
A shortwave piece of energy currently moving through wa and or will
move through the front side of the ridge, which is still off the
west coast. The piece of energy will begin to enhance northwest
winds tonight in response to increasing pressure gradients bringing
breezy northwest winds across the region through much of tomorrow.
This synoptic setup will continue to allow pieces of energy to move
through the northwest flow, influencing winds area-wide again Friday
afternoon and overnight into Saturday morning. With all north wind
events, winds are expected to remain enhanced down the lower
colorado river valley, especially areas south of lake mohave.
North winds of 15-25 mph expected tomorrow, with similar north
winds expected Friday night. Besides winds, skies will continue to
remain mostly clear with some gradual warming through the end of
the work week.
Long term Saturday through Wednesday
the region will be sitting on the edge of a west coast ridge through
the middle of next week. With northwest flow, it will remain dry
through the period. A few waves will ride through the mean|
anticyclonic setup, which will result in breezy north to northwest
winds at times. The first shortwave will produce a modest pressure
behind it on Saturday which would result in gusty north winds,
mainly in the morning when the gradient is the strongest. Models are
in decent agreement in the timing and strength of this piece of
energy, so moderate confidence in the Saturday forecast. High
pressure will build back in for Sunday and Monday before a broad
trough swings through around the middle of next week. This wave
should bring another round of increased winds for Monday and or
Temperatures will gradually warm each day before peaking on Sunday.
Sunday's high temperatures will be above normal, however there
remains model differences in how far east the ridge axis will set up
and therefore lower confidence in the temperature forecast on Sunday
and Monday. As the trough swings through Tuesday or Wednesday,
temperatures will fall back to near normal by Tuesday and may even
dip below normal for Wednesday.
Aviation For mccarran... A light east-northeast component
less than 6 knots will become southwest after sunset and
overnight. Winds will develop from the north-northeast greater
than 10 knots by mid Thursday morning and will continue much of the
day then should become light Thursday evening. Only few-sct thin
cirrus clouds expected.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Sustained north winds 10-20 knots will spread down
over the region tonight and early Thursday morning... With gusts up
to 30 knots along the colorado river valley from IFP to hii much of
the day Thursday. Only few-sct thin cirrus clouds expected.

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.
