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.

Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 210 pm mst Mon dec 10 2018
tonight-Tuesday... Mid and high level clouds increase from west to
east overnight and into the morning ahead of an upper level
trough. By late in the day clouds decrease from west to east.
Southwest winds 5 to 15 mph tonight shift to the northwest late
tomorrow morning through the afternoon with gusts around 25 mph
for some. Low temperatures should range from the low to mid teens
in snow covered areas from trenton to norton and points
east northeast as well as in the tribune and leoti areas to the
low 20s elsewhere. High temperatures range from the low to mid 40s
across the northeast and eastern parts of the area to the low 50s
Tuesday night-Wednesday... Decreasing cloudiness during the night
with low temperatures in the upper teens to mid 20s. Clouds
increase across the northwest half of the area in the afternoon
ahead of an approaching upper level trough and cold front. High
temperatures in the low to upper 50s.
Wednesday night-Thursday... Cold front moves through the area
during the night with north to northwest winds gusting up to 50
mph... Strongest along and west of the co ks border. A fairly
narrow band of 850-500mb moisture moves south through the area
supporting slight chance pops for primarily snow showers. Could be
a mix or just rain showers for a few hours in the evening before
the colder air changes it over. Low temperatures in the low to mid
20s west... Mid 20s to around 30 east. Dry weather returns for
Thursday under rapidly decreasing cloudiness. Northwest winds
gusting to 40 mph or so will exist in the morning before slowly
decreasing in the afternoon and by sunset be in the 10 to 15 mph
range. High temperatures cool back into the low to mid 40s which
is very close to normal for mid december.
Long term (Thursday night through Monday)
issued at 210 pm mst Mon dec 10 2018
from Thursday night through Monday the forecast is rather benign.
An upper level short wave ridge will move through, followed by an
upper level short wave trough Saturday. Behind the short wave
trough another short wave ridge will move through early next week.|
Current data indicates the trough passage Saturday will be dry.
Any precipitation development will be well north of the forecast
area due to the dry air over the central plains accompanying the
trough east. A weak cold front will also accompany the trough
Saturday night. WAA returns Sunday afternoon, so there should be a
minimal impact to highs compared to Saturday.
Most of the gefs, gfs, ECMWF are in good agreement with the
track speed of the trough Saturday. Some of the GEFS members
differ regarding the intensity, or lack there of. However, with
most model data keeping the trough over the northern plains,
confidence is moderate that the track will not change in the
coming days, likely leaving the forecast area dry.
Temperatures from Thursday night through Monday will be fairly
constant, with highs in the low to mid 50s and lows in the 20s.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
