Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

Dry weather and unseasonably warm temperatures can be expected for
much of the area through late this week. A low pressure system will
move across the region this weekend with increasing winds and a
downward trend in temperatures expected.
Short term Today through Thursday night.
Overall, the next couple of days should be relatively quiet in
regards to the weather as a ridge strengthens across the great
basin through midweek. A weak impulse will pass to the south today
and tonight which should provide some additional high cloud
coverage throughout the day. Lingering gusty, north to northeast
winds will be prevalent over lincoln county and adjacent areas
through early Wednesday as a secondary disturbance swings across
the rockies into the central plains states. Temps will remain
consistently above normal through Thursday, coming within 2-3
degrees of daily record highs Wednesday and Thursday. A closed
low will slowly begin its approach on the central west coast
Wednesday and Thursday, increasing southwest flow across the area.
This will lead to enhanced orographic lift and moisture
convergence along the sierra weds and thurs so isolated shower
activity will be possible during the afternoon and evening each of
those days. There should be enough instability present to warrant
an isolated lightning strike as well. An uptick in the winds is
expected on Thursday mainly across southeast california and the
southern great basin. Speeds between 10-20 mph gusting 20-25 mph
Long term Friday through Tuesday.
A weather pattern change is still shaping up for this weekend
through early next week, but any impacts appear to be minor and
confidence remains low in specific details. The medium range modes
are in good general agreement that a broad closed low near the west|
coast Friday morning will move inland by Saturday morning with its
center over northern california. After that, model solutions begin
to diverge significantly with respect to how the system will linger
or eject or be reinforced by additional disturbances dropping down
from the northwest. The one thing that is clear is that a mean
trough is forecast to be over the western states the remainder of
the weekend into next week. This will bring increasing southwest
winds Friday into Saturday, but speeds do not look particulary
strong due to the slow inland progression of the system.
Temperatures will pull back to near or slightly below normal values
with highs in the upper 70s to lower 80s across the mojave desert
zones by Sunday. Moisture will be limited and chances for showers
should be confined to the southern sierra and the higher terrain
near central nevada.
Aviation For mccarran... South to southwest winds will become
light and variable this morning. Typical diurnal wind trends are
expected today with speeds remaining 10 knots or less. Periods of
light and variable winds will be possible tonight, favoring the
typical southwest direction, as well as increasing coverage of
high clouds overnight.
For the rest of southern nevada, northwest arizona and southeast
california... Most areas will see typical diurnal winds with speeds
remaining around 10 knots or less. The exception will be across
lincoln county and adjacent areas where gusty, northeast to east
winds will be possible today and tonight and the western mojave
desert and mohave county where gusty, southwest winds are expected
late this afternoon and evening. High clouds will increase
throughout the day.

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.
