10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.

Synopsis Most areas will be cold and dry today and Saturday so
its a good time to catch up on all that shoveling... Or sledding. A
weak weather system could bring some showers to northern nevada on
Short term Today through Sunday. Very quiet this morning for a
change. Looking at what appears to be some fog development near
the oregon and idaho borders where the temp dewpoint difference is
tight. Fog may not develop locally as we are currently running a
surface dewpoint depression between 5 and 12 degrees on our main
ob sites. Will be monitoring wind chill values around the lkn cwfa
this morning. Quite breezy with 7 degrees before midnight in
spring creek. Ely would be the main location of concern for low
wind chills if typical southerly drainage direction ensues. Model
guidance has them continuing light and northerly overnight as is
currently the case. Model agreement is pretty good through Sunday.
Today through Saturday evening. This will be a mainly dry period.
A cold low pressure trough will be rapidly exiting. The trough
axis will evolve from a positive tilt over southern nevada to a
negative tilt as far east as missouri. The flow aloft of nevada
will transition from north today... To northwest tonight and early
Saturday... To west northwest by Saturday afternoon and evening.
Temperatures this morning and Saturday morning will be coldest.
By Saturday there could be a few showers developing near the
oregon and idaho borders but for the most part, dry conditions
will be in the offing. High temperatures will be in the 20s today,
warming into the range from the mid 20s to the mid 30s on
Saturday. Low temperatures will generally range from 5 degrees|
below zero to 5 degrees above zero.
Midnight Saturday through Sunday. A low pressure trough will be
stretching across canada and washington state. A very moist flow
off the pacific will flow through oregon and idaho. On the south
side of the main stream of moist air, showers are expected to
mainly affect areas north of interstate 80. With the flow aloft
more westerly, this could be a mix of rain and snow in the
Long term Sunday night through next Friday.
Next week will feature persistent westerly flow aloft with a
chance of precipitation daily mainly north of interstate 80. As a
result, milder air will overspread the region with daytime
temperatures rising well into the 30s and 40s with some 50s
showing up in the lower valleys of the western and southern
cwa. Accumulating wetter snows will be possible across northern
nevada mainly in the mountains of northern humboldt and elko
counties while a mix of valley rain and or snow showers will occur
especially with a system on Tuesday into Wednesday. A wetter
pacific system lead by a more significant atmospheric river
component could impact nevada next Friday into next Saturday
bringing rain and snow to much of the cwa.
Aviation Look forVFR conditions to hold through Saturday
morning with mostly clear to partly cloudy skies. Overall, today will
not be as windy as Thursday though north to northwest winds will
generally run from 10 to 15 knots with daytime gusts to around 25
kts at ktph.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
