Marine Weather and Tides
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.
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.

across the tri state region this afternoon... Temperatures are
currently ranging from the upper 40s thru the mid 50s under a
meandering psunny msunny sky. Winds are mainly light and variable
For the rest of the afternoon... Variable sky cover is expected to
remain over the area W the region still under the influence of the
extreme western edge of the circulation of the exiting storm
system... Even as surface high pressure builds over the area.
Going into tonight... Expecting low level moisture over the region to
keep sky conditions at least partly cloudy. Surface ridge will
continue to push slow eastward going into Monday. By then decreasing
clouds over the region as surface ridge continues trek eastward...

The result of this will have dry conditions area-wide tonight into
Monday. For temps... The region will have overnight lows ranging in
the 30s... Warmest east but all areas highly dependent on expected
cloud cover and will have to be monitored. Monday high temps with
high pressure in force will allow for upper 60s to around 70f.

Monday night-Tuesday night: a shortwave trough moving ashore the
oregon coast this afternoon is expected to amplify into an upper
level low as it progresses eastward through idaho (tonight) and
along the wy mt border (Monday). 12z gfs ECMWF guidance indicate
that the upper low will weaken and assume a southeasterly course
through western sd (mon night) and central NE ks (tue Tue night).
Low-level flow over the tri-state area will back to the southeast
and strengthen as the upper low progresses into western sd Monday
evening into Monday night. Moisture return will be poor in quality
and short in duration, however, as a cooler drier airmass surges
into the region in the wake of a cold frontal passage Tuesday
morning. Upper level forcing will remain well N NW of the tri-|
state area Monday night Tuesday morning (when low-level moisture
will be greatest) and, as a result, precipitation may be limited
to a brief period of sprinkles assoc W transient low-level
convergence and frontogenesis attendant the cold front progressing
southeast through northwest ks. Upper forcing will strengthen
during the day Tue as the upper low tracks into northwest north-
central nebraska but will be poorly juxtaposed with low-level
moisture over the tri-state area. Additionally, forcing will be
greatest over central and eastern portions of NE ks (based on the
12z gfs ECMWF upper low track). With the above in mind,
precipitation may be limited to sprinkles or brief light showers
Monday night. On Tuesday afternoon and evening, chances for rain
(showers) will be greatest in northeast portions of the forecast
area (mccook-norton-hill city).
Wednesday-Sunday: NW flow aloft will prevail mid late week in the
wake of the aforementioned upper low. A progressive shortwave
passage will be possible on thu. Measurable precipitation is
extremely unlikely in the tri-state area given little no moisture
return and the brief period of dpva attendant such a wave. Expect
dry conditions to persist through the end of the week and the
upcoming weekend as a ridge builds atop the rockies and high

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.
