Marine Weather and Tides
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.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Short term (this evening through Thursday night)
issued at 250 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
an upper ridge is situated over the western CONUS as a transient
clipper shortwave develops in the northern plains and is expected to
swiftly move across mid-america Tuesday evening into Wednesday. This
fast moving upper disturbance is expected to stay north of the cwa
as a moisture deficient airmass and associated high pressure at
the surface spread across the southwestern u.S. Keeping kansas
precip-free over the next several days.
Expect the warming trend in temperatures to continue through
Thursday as the upper ridge pattern becomes more zonal in nature
across kansas. Resulting downslope flow from the west should
allow for increased thickness and sufficient warm air advection in
the area to push highs into the low to mid- 60s across central,
south central, and southeast kansas by Thursday afternoon.
Long term (Friday through Tuesday)
issued at 250 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
a cutoff upper low currently forming over central northern mexico is
progged to intensify as it is pushed northeastward along and ahead
of an upper trough that is expected to rapidly move across the
northern plains this weekend. As the pressure gradient tightens
Thursday and Friday, surface winds should pick up resulting in
breezy southwesterly winds both days. The main frontal system is
expected to quickly push through the area late Friday night into
early Saturday morning. Though most of central kansas should stay
dry, 850mb moisture transport vectors from the southwest and pockets
of sufficient moisture flux divergence seem to indicate that
areas of southeast kansas and the flint hills could see a decent
shot at some rain showers transitioning over to light snow in
some areas as the temperature drops overnight. At this time, no
major impacts are expected.
Behind the front, expect clearing skies and winds switching to a
more northwesterly direction, which should cool temperatures back
down slightly heading into Saturday and Sunday before another
gradual warmup to begin the work week next week.

vfr conditions expected to prevail thru the forecast valid period.
Surface high pressure ridge will slide east across the area late
tonight through Wednesday. Light northwest winds will back to
south-southwest on Wednesday and become gusty across central
kansas in the afternoon.
Issued at 250 pm cst Tue jan 23 2018
very high grassland fire danger is expected across central, south
central, and southeast kansas on Thursday, with some areas
possibly reaching the extreme category. Temperatures are expected
to be well above normal (low to mid 60s). When combined with cured
grasses, gusty winds, and low relative humidity, this could cause
some fire concerns. Outdoor burning on Thursday is strongly
discouraged. In addition, some areas of central kansas and along
the flint hills could also see very high grassland fire danger on
Friday ahead of the frontal passage.

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.
