Marine Weather and Tides
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.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 123 am cdt Wed oct 18 2017
another pleasant day is in store for the region with a dry low and
mid-level air mass remaining in place. We will see some high
clouds at times as a couple of upper level disturbances quickly
pass southeast through the area.
A warm air advection regime will begin today with south to
southwest winds increasing in the low levels of the atmosphere.
Highs over most areas should make the middle 70s this afternoon.
Lows tonight will then fall into the upper 40s and lower 50s with
light south winds persisting.
Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 123 am cdt Wed oct 18 2017
southwesterly flow aloft will then spread over the region on
Thursday and Friday with continued warm advection in the low
levels of the atmosphere. Temperatures will respond by warming
into the upper 70s to lower 80s on Thursday.
There may be some high level clouds that try and skirt in here on
Friday with a weak short wave trough. This could knock down highs
a few degrees. We have gone with middle to upper 70s for now, but
those temperatures may need to be increased if the high clouds
remain to our west.
A vigorous upper level trough will then swing out into the plains
on Saturday with surface low pressure and a trailing cold front
beginning to move east towards the region. This front will then
cross southeast kansas and the missouri ozarks from Saturday
evening into early Sunday morning with a good chance for showers
Low level moisture return ahead of the cold front will be
maximized along the i-35 corridor with much poorer surface to
850 mb trajectories across the ozarks. It does look like we could
see low to perhaps middle 60s dew points make a return just in
time for the frontal passage.
With deep layer shear forecast to be in the 30-40 knot range, we
will introduce a threat for some strong to severe thunderstorm
potential. At this time, it looks like the better potential for
severe storms would be across extreme southeastern kansas and far
western missouri where instability may be a bit higher. Given the
amount of forcing that will be present, a line of thunderstorms
looks like the favored convective mode along or just behind the
Showers and thunderstorms should then end from west to east across
the ozarks on Sunday and Sunday night. Mainly dry weather is then
expected for the start of next work week. Temperatures behind that
front will be quite a bit cooler with highs returning to the 60s
and lows in the 40s.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning)
issued at 551 am cdt Wed oct 18 2017
vfr conditions will continue through tonight with a few high
clouds. Southerly surface winds will be gusty during the late
morning and afternoon hours with gusts around 20 knots. Low level
wind shear conditions are then expected late tonight.

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.
