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 Still cooler and wetter than normal expected for
several days. Isolated thunderstorms are possible over the great
basin. Some of the rain or snow showers could be briefly heavy.
Streams and rivers will run higher than normal.
Short term Tonight through Saturday.
Running out of ways to say "cool and wet through the forecast
period". The models have been pretty much spot on for the short
term forecast with a full latitude trough over the western us,
closed lows drifting about from southern california, across the
great basin, into the central northern rockies. So... Continued
cooler and wetter than normal through the forecast period.
Despite the rain cooled boundary layer and low level cold
advection, there is sufficient cold air aloft to create a little
instability so isolated thunderstorms are occurring and will be
possible each afternoon and evening. They truly are isolated, but
cover an overall large area. The least chances are over western
Low temps will range from the upper 20s to low 40s with highs
mainly in the 50s and 60s.
Long term Saturday night through next Thursday.
Deep western trough continues to dominate through remainder of
the memorial day weekend. Strong mid-level circulation will be
moving toward central california on Sunday, with wraparound
moisture covering the region into memorial day. Both days will be
wet with periods of showers and possible thunderstorms. Daytime
temps will be below normal with readings in the 50s to lower 60s.
Large scale pattern begins to change on Tuesday as the deep
western trough will be ejecting eastward. The long wave pattern
still favors western CONUS trough, but the overall pattern will be
less amplified. Short wave energy moves across nevada Wednesday-
Thursday time frame, but will not be as cool. The threat of
showers with possible storms continue into next Thursday, daytime
temps will be moderating toward climatology and convection becomes less
Aviation Widespread showers with isolated TS from ktph to kely
are expected this evening with MVFR CIGS common, localized ifr
from +shra. But the overall trend will be for improving conditions
overnight at all terminals. Convection gets started again after
18z Friday, with the best threat for shra tsra at keko and kely.
Showers will be in the vicinity of kwmc and kbam.
Fire weather Continued wetter and cooler than normal through
the memorial day weekend. Isolated thunderstorms will occur over
most of the fire district but are best expected south and east of
a line from around west wendover to elko to gabbs. The storms and
showers will move rather slowly and so brief heavy precip is
possible. Higher valleys and mountains will get either mixed
rain snow or snow.
Hydrology Persistent rains and snow melt are causing smaller
creeks and normally dry washes to run higher than normal. These
are in turn feeding perennial rivers which are in turn feeding
larger rivers. All of them will continue to fluctuate in stage,
but trend upward over the next few days. Fields, pastures, and low
spots will be muddy and occasionally impassable. A very slight
drying trend will occur into early next week, but it's also
appearing a bit warmer so snow melt will continue.

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.
