Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 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.

main forecast issue will be chance of thunderstorms and any
resulting severe weather and locally heavy rainfall. Secondary minor
concern is how hot does it get on Tuesday. Satellite showing a
somewhat amplified but still progressive flow from the pacific into
north america. The flow is the most amplified over western north
america. Amplifying western ridge is leading to a stronger digging
upper system that is moving toward the central plains. A cold front
is moving toward the region. However numerous mesoscale boundaries
reside over and near to the area due to extensive previous and
This will be a low confidence forecast due to poor model performance
from yesterday, even as the event was unfolding, and ongoing
mesoscale influences that the models will not be taking into account.
Through 06z the cams high resolution guidance is not performing well
at this time. They do not have the clusters of storms to our north
that are along and behind the cold front. They also have the MCS to
our south in the wrong place. They have it over the southern portion
of our area while it is over southern kansas and northern oklahoma.
Today tonight... Not much time to look at much due to ongoing
severe or near severe thunderstorms. Mid level system begins
moving into the area at the beginning of the day and moves slowly
across the area through the rest of the day into the overnight
hours. Also diffluence and much colder air aloft good baroclinic
zone improves moves across through the day.
Weak right rear quadrant starts over the southeast portion of the
area. Left front quadrant moves into the northwest half of the
area during the morning and then moves across the rest of the area
during the afternoon. A secondary jet MAX affects the far eastern
area in the evening. As a result put highest pops into the evening
in advance of the mid and upper level lift since surface and
precipitation depiction are not doing well right now.
Not sure what affect current activity will have on any later
severe. Will keep a mention of severe along with heavy rainfall.|
Will continue to monitor and reassess as the shift GOES on.
Monday Monday night... Ridging and drier air mass look to move in.
Temperatures will warm but not sure how much depending on how
widespread the rain is.
Tuesday Tuesday night... Continued dry as ridging along strengthens
over the area. This day looks to be the beginning of much hotter
and above normal temperatures.

not much to look at stuff. Fortunately it looks like a quiet dry
for period with the next chance of precipitation show up very late
in this period. Otherwise it will remain hot much above normal

challenging forecast. Winds may be light variable for much of
today, though stronger winds will certainly be possible INVOF any
thunderstorms. Scattered to numerous thunderstorms will develop
over the tri-state area late this morning and are likely to affect
both terminals at some point (perhaps multiple times) this
afternoon. Thunderstorms should shift south east of the area this
evening (00-06z mon), though it is possible that thunderstorms
could linger in vicinity of the mck terminal overnight. A period
of MVFR ceilings cannot be ruled out at either terminal this
evening overnight. Expect winds to become NW wnw at 15-20 knots
aoa sunrise Monday morning.VFR conditions are expected to
prevail from sunrise onward.

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.
