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 The upper level trough over utah will weaken as it
exits the region later today. A new storm system will move south
along the west coast and settle into california Sunday. This
storm will turn east and bring cool and unsettled weather back
into utah early next week.
Discussion The upper level trough extending from the low over
the northern plains then southwest into southern california will
continue to weaken as it drifts east today. Most of the current
showers are scattered along the trough axis and are generally
light. One exception is the embedded vorticity lobe moving slowly
east across northwest utah. This feature working with the still
moist and marginally unstable air mass is generating a more solid
area of light to locally moderate precip at this time. Suspect
that this area of precip will hold together through early
afternoon, then weaken as it moves east of the state.
Still looking at a good amount of moisture remaining over the
forecast area behind the exiting trough this afternoon. Decent
diurnal heating, especially across western utah, along with
relatively cool air aloft should be sufficient to bring
convection back into the picture by around mid-afternoon. Current
forecast looks good with scattered or better convective coverage
back into the picture this afternoon, with a fairly rapid decrease
in areal coverage with the loss of daytime heating this evening.
Substantially drier and warmer air will work south-to-north
across the state later tonight through Sunday. Residual moisture
will likely be sufficient for convective clouds, but little in the|
way of precip either Saturday or Sunday.
A shortwave diving south into the pacific northwest this morning
will form a closed circulation as it stalls today. This feature
could spawn some convection along the nevada border Saturday
night Sunday before it's absorbed by the stronger system diving
south along the coast this weekend. This next storm will turn east
from california late Sunday and bring another unseasonably cold,
long duration precip event to much of the state during the first
half of next week.
Aviation Ceilings at or below 6000ft agl are expected to remain
in place at the kslc terminal through midday before slightly lifting
at times for the afternoon. The bulk of rain will remain north of
the terminal today, but buildups are expected over local terrain
beginning around 18z. Although south winds will prevail today, gusty
and erratic outflow will remain a potential with any passing showers.

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.
