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.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 327 am mdt Fri jun 22 2018
the primary concerns in the short term are the possibility of
severe thunderstorms across the area both this afternoon and
evening and again on Sunday afternoon and evening.
An upper trough moves across the central high plains this evening
with zonal flow on Saturday ahead of the stronger upper low
expected to emerge east of the rockies over the central and
northern high plains on Sunday.
Storms will develop rapidly over eastern colorado this afternoon
in the surface convergent area of upslope flow that transitions to
a southerly direction and transports near 60 degree dewpoint air
into the forecast area. Storms will migrate across mainly the
western and southwestern portions of the forecast area as a
surface low consolidates in the vicinity of the panhandle region
and moves east overnight.
A few storms are expected on Saturday night into Sunday morning,
but the main thunderstorm activity will develop on Sunday
afternoon as the stronger upper low emerges east of the rockies.
Another surface low develops in the panhandle region with a strong
low level southerly jet that transports mid 60 dewpoint air into
the region along with a warm frontal boundary. Strong
destabilization is expected as the low brings in cooler
temperatures aloft in combination with the ample low level
moisture and a warm front moving into the region. Expect storms
to become more widespread through Sunday afternoon and evening
with storms becoming severe and eventually consolidating into an
mcs as they move out of the forecast area by late Sunday.|
Long term (Monday through Thursday)
issued at 250 am mdt Fri jun 22 2018
a trough centered over the tri-state region Monday is expected to
move northeast towards the upper midwest Monday night. As the
trough exits the region, thunderstorm chances move eastward. Zonal
flow aloft replaces the trough leading to above normal
temperatures through the end of the week and drier conditions.
A shortwave embedded within a forming ridge moves over the region
Wednesday night and Thursday morning bringing slight chances of
thunderstorms. Ridge building begins Wednesday night as a trough
forms over the western conus. This is where noticeable spatial
differences start to occur between the GFS and ecmwf. The gfs
seems to be more progressive while the ECMWF builds a deeper
trough over the west coast.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night)
issued at 1128 pm mdt Thu jun 21 2018
vfr conditions forecast for the tafs. Light winds for the rest of
the night will persist through the day, aside from any winds from
thunderstorms. Still expecting storm activity to move in from the
west during the afternoon, with the best chance for storms to move
over the sites being around 0z. Significant hail will be the
biggest threat, while a tornado cannot be ruled out.

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.
