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.

Issued at 240 am cst Wed nov 14 2018
slightly warmer conditions are expected today as weak southerly
flow develops and continued sunshine eliminates the snowpack over
the region; however, a few clouds may sneak into far southern and
southeastern portions of the CWA as a wintry system lifts up
across southeast mo, potentially limiting heating this afternoon
and holding highs in the mid 30s. Better southerly flow and much
warmer temperatures aloft will follow for Thursday and Friday,
bringing highs into the mid to upper 40s Thursday and the low 50s
by Friday afternoon.
A cold front is still expected to drop southward across the plains
this weekend, and has begun to phase a bit better with an earlier
passage of the upper trough, slightly increasing precipitation
potential for Saturday through Sunday morning. Precipitation type
will be snow aloft, but precipitation type is still expected to
depend on low-level wet bulb temperatures near the surface cold
front, as the warmer antecedent conditions could allow melting
near the ground. Lower temporal and spatial resolution models are|
painting a nearly continuous system from surface front to elevated
frontogenesis, but still expect a brief break between the first
frontal passage and a second round associated with the upper
trough elevated front, possibly with a bit higher precipitation
amounts in the second system.
Colder temperatures will return for the weekend in the wake of the
cold frontal passage, then a gradual return to near normal
temperatures is expected by middle next week.

vfr conditions and generally light south to southeast winds are
expected throughout the TAF period. A few clouds may build into
central mo this afternoon, but are expected to stay well to the
southeast of all terminals.

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.
