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

Short term (today through Tuesday night)
issued at 223 am mst Sun nov 18 2018
across the region this morning... Skies are a mix from partly cloudy
north to mostly cloudy to cloudy along the southern portions of the
cwa... Especially along south of highway 40 where the remnants of
overnight snow shower activity are remaining... But fading fairly
quickly. Temperatures are currently ranging mainly in the teens with
a few locales around 20f. Winds are mainly light variable as surface
ridge axis is cresting over the region but is slowly sliding ese.
For today... Expecting remaining thicker cloud cover to the south to
continue to push away from the region this morning... Joining the
remainder of the CWA with mostly sunny to sunny conditions. Have
continued a mention of flurries for a couple hrs this morning until
low level veil shifts E and s.
Looking for a decent rebound in temps from the current cold range.
Aforementioned surface ridge will continue its slide away from the
cwa... Allowing for southwesterly flow to bring decent WAA into the
region. Highs today will range into the low 40s.
For tonight on into Tuesday night... Upper level ridging from 850mb
to 500 mb sets up just west of the CWA over the rockies. Surface
high pressure will meander over the central plains as well allowing
for dry conditions during this time... Along with a warming trend.
Looking for high temps Monday in the mid to upper 40s giving way to
the 50s on Tuesday. Lows tonight into Tuesday night will trend
upward from the lower 20s into the mid 20s by Tuesday night.
Long term (Wednesday through Sunday)
issued at 140 am mst Sun nov 18 2018
an upper-level longwave ridge will make for quiet and mild weather
for the central high plains in the middle of the coming week. A|
broad upper-level trough more associated with the subtropical jet
will move eastward across the southern and central plains Thursday
evening, bringing with it some increased cloud cover but no
precipitation just yet. The next upper-level trough will impact the
tri-state area Saturday and Sunday as a trough more associated with
the mid-latitude jet will develop over the western united states and
progress eastward over the forecast area.
The trough next weekend has the potential to bring blowing snow to
the central high plains with wind gusts 25-30 mph and the highest snow
amounts on the order of 2 to 4 inches. These values could worsen
as we get closer to the event, so this will be something to keep
an eye on going forward. However, one limiting factor (or
complicating factor) will be temperatures below above freezing
Saturday and Sunday and whether that precipitation will fall as
rain or snow. It is very difficult to say anything with certainty
about precipitation type on day 6 and 7, but next weekend is
shaping up to be active weather- wise.
High temperatures should be in the upper 50s through Friday before
shifting to the upper 40s Saturday and the lower 40s Sunday. Low
temperatures will generally be in the mid to upper 20s Wednesday
through Sunday morning except for Friday morning which will be a
little warmer with lows in the mid 30s. Breezy gusty winds will be a
concern during the day on Friday and Saturday night into Sunday.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Monday morning)
issued at 400 am mst Sun nov 18 2018
with high pressure over the region...VFR conditions will be
present at both terminals(kgld kmck) for the forecast period. Any
remaining cloud cover will give way to skc by late afternoon
early evening. Winds... W 5-10kts thru 21z-22z then SW around
10kts. By 03z-05z Monday... W around 10kts.

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.
