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 Low pressure will continue to bring scattered showers
and thunderstorms to much of the region today before lifting to
the northeast Friday. Expect another cool day today with high
temperatures around 20 degrees below normal. Friday will bring
warmer temperatures and limited shower activity before the next
storm system arrives in time to bring a mix of weather for the
memorial day weekend. Saturday will be warm and mostly dry with
showers breaking out over the sierra and northern portions of the
forecast area then, temperatures cool and rain chances increase
heading into Sunday and Monday. Dry weather and warmer
temperatures follow for Tuesday and Wednesday.
Isolated showers possible through the day today, particularly north
of i-40 where forecast lifted indecies vary between 0 and -3c today.
As the cold upper-level low pressure system overhead moves
northeastward out of northern arizona, precipitation chances will
decrease from south-to-north. Highest chances of lightning potential
today remain in the northern zones of lincoln, esmeralda and nye
counties, though an isolated flash with some convective cells north
of i-40 cannot be ruled out. Afternoon high temperatures remain well
below-average today, with a forecast high for mccarran at 70f. No
updates to the forecast necessary.

Discussion Satellite imagery shows low pressure currently centered
over northwest arizona will lift off to the northeast today with
broad troughing over the forecast area. A large portion of the cwa
will see showers and isolated thunderstorms develop again today.
The highest precipitation amounts are forecast over the northern
half of lincoln county and also in esmeralda county. Today will be
another cool day across the region with high temperatures still
around 20 degrees below normal. Temperatures will quickly warm
over the next few days, ending up 6-10 degrees warmer on Friday
and another 5-9 degrees warmer on Saturday. This will leave us a|
little more than 5 degrees below normal.
As this first storm becomes history, the active weather pattern
continues as the new system in line begins affecting the area by
Saturday. The 00z Wednesday ECMWF analysis was forecasting a duel
low event bringing an initial weaker low from the pac NW into
the great basin with a more potent low following behind the first
and settling over the forecast area late in the holiday weekend.
Now, the other models have come more in line with the ecmwf
solution minoring out the initial wave and following with a strong
low that sinks south along the coast and then moves directly over
the CWA by early Monday morning. This will result in another drop
in temperatures, more clouds and shower storm chances to begin the
next week. This low does not stay with us long and is forecast to
be east of the area by Tuesday. The consensus of model solutions
have a northwest flow aloft over the area Tuesday and Wednesday.
Aviation For mccarran... Expect chances for mostly light showers
to continue off and on through tonight, with ceilings at or below
050 possible if and when showers move over the terminal. South winds
could gust 20 to 25 knots this afternoon before decreasing this
evening. Much better conditions are expected Friday and Saturday.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Chances for rain and mountain snow showers can be
expected today along and north of interstate 40 before tapering off
from south to north overnight. Low ceilings and terrain obscuration
will be the primary risk in showers. Rain chances will continue in
the southern great basin Friday and Saturday, with much better
conditions expected in the mojave desert.

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.
