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 An area of high pressure will provide the region
with dry weather, lighter winds and temperatures climbing back to
normal the rest of the week and through the weekend.
Short term Through Friday night.
Satellite shows thickest section of high clouds currently over the
region with leading edge just reaching kingman and back edge just
about to clear bishop and tonopah. Extrapolating the back edge
suggest it should clear las vegas around 7 this morning, then
kingman about 9 am. After the high clouds clear, looking at another
light wind day, the exception is once again the lower colorado river
valley where 10-20 mph north winds possible from lake mohave south
through the mohave valley.
Similar conditions will exist Thursday and Friday. Another weak
disturbance moving through the weak ridge will send a few more high
clouds our way Thursday night and Friday.
Long term Saturday through Wednesday
fairly quiet conditions expected over the weekend with mean ridging
moving inland and across the western states. This ridge, flanked by
a trough to it's east and west, will slowly progress eastward
through roughly Tuesday Wednesday. A few impulses and shortwaves are
forecast to break away from parent troughs, situated in eastern
pacific, and move toward the southwest under the ridge. The most
notable shortwave will move toward southern california during the|
Monday-Tuesday morning time frame. Limited moisture is associated
with the wave, so little to no precip is expected across the mojave
desert. The only noticable change will be an increase in high level
clouds as it moves into socal.
Beyond Tuesday morning, models diverge quite a bit. However, both
operational models along with ensemble systems are in agreement on a
pattern shift mid to late next week. More influence from shortwaves
across the southwestern states means elevated chances for
rain mountain snow.
Aviation For mccarran... Light winds, generally less than 10 kts,
will follow typical diurnal trends through the period. Bkn high
clouds early will decrease as they shift southeast this morning.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... With high pressure overhead, expect mostly light winds
across much of the region following typical diurnal trends. However,
north breezes will continue down the colorado river valley through
with gusts around 20 kts expected at both eed and IFP terminals. Bkn
high clouds early this morning will slide southeast later this
Spotter information statement Spotters are encouraged to report

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
