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.

Short term (today through Friday night)
issued at 317 am cdt Wed may 23 2018
quiet weather today through Thursday night with high pressure the
rule, and a frontal boundary just off to our south. Some high
clouds at times today. Our next chance of precip comes Friday
when return flow sets up and mid level ridging across the area
breaks down. Will carry small chances for showers and storms
Friday Friday night. Otherwise temps to remain above normal.
Long term (Saturday through Tuesday)
issued at 317 am cdt Wed may 23 2018
the holiday weekend forecast remains challenging. ECMWF and the
canadian have been fairly consistent taking a surface low upper low
up through the central eastern gulf Saturday into Sunday, bringing
it onshore Sunday night into Monday. The latest GFS veers the low
across florida late Saturday night into Sunday, and has been the
least consistent, so prefer the ECMWF canadian solutions. While
waiting on the surface upper low, a weak upper level trof will be
over our region. With moist unstable air in place, isolated to
scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible Saturday into
Sunday, with the best chances during the daytime hours.
The effects of the gulf low should start to be felt Sunday night.
Ecmwf takes the low farther west than the canadian, and produces
more widespread showers and thunderstorms farther north across our
region. Just how high our pops should be as we get into Monday and
Tuesday remains questionable, but we should continue to see higher
chances during the daytime hours. Both models keep us dry Monday
It will remain warm and humid through the extended with highs in the
middle to upper 80s and lows in the 60s.
Issued at 317 am cdt Wed may 23 2018
patchy fog, MVFR vsbys expected through daybreak. OtherwiseVFR
with light northeast winds.

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.
