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 (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 315 pm cdt Wed jul 18 2018
scattered storms are developing across southeastern kansas into
west central missouri this afternoon. These scattered storms will
continue to develop and slowly sag southeast into this evening.
Instability has increased across the area with generally 2000
j kg of MLCAPE along and west of highway 65 and north of highway
60, with over 2500 j kg of MLCAPE across extreme southeastern
kansas. An upper level jet is spreading southeast across the
central plains, and as a result deep layer shear has increased
slightly across the area. There will be a few strong to severe
storms this afternoon and evening mainly along and west of highway
65. Hail to the size of quarters and damaging straight line winds
will be the main risk. The storm movement will be slow, so
locally heavy rainfall will also occur with the storms.
Storms will develop across nebraska this evening and form into a
complex and dive southeast overnight. This activity is expected to
spread into portions of the area late tonight into Thursday
morning. There could be training of storms and where this occurs
there will be a flash flood risk. There is also the potential for
a few strong storms too, mainly along and east of highway 65.
This activity should spread east of the area by Thursday
afternoon. Dry air will spread into the mid levels of the
atmosphere Thursday afternoon and evening and will help prevent
redevelopment of storms Thursday afternoon and evening.
Temperatures will warm into the middle to upper 90s with heat
index values around 103 to near 110 degrees west of highway 65
Thursday afternoon early evening. Clouds from the morning complex
of storms will keep the eastern ozarks slightly cooler. If the
clouds clear sooner or the complex of storms tracks farther east|
temperatures could warm more across the eastern ozarks. Went
ahead and issued a heat advisory for locations west of highway 65
Thursday afternoon early evening where there is higher confidence
in the hot and humid conditions occurring.
Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 315 pm cdt Wed jul 18 2018
storms are expected to develop across the central plains again
Thursday evening and dive southeast. This activity will be
weakening as they move towards and into the area late Thursday
into early Friday.
An upper level trough and weak surface front will spread through
the area Friday Friday night. This will bring a drier air mass to
the area this weekend into early next week. Highs will warm into
the upper 80s to middle 90s this weekend into early next week.
A shortwave trough may move through the region during the middle
of next week bringing additional rain chances to the area. Medium
range models differ on the exact timing though.

convection was finally ending over the CWA with just a few light
showers remaining. Nothing was close to the terminal locations and
will go withVFR conditions through the period. Will need to still
monitor what the MCS over nebraska does, but for now, do not have
it impacting the 3 terminal sites.

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.
