Marine Weather and Tides

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
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.

this afternoon tonight: focus this afternoon remains on the
potential for scattered thunderstorms for roughly the southwest half
of the forecast area. MCV evident over south central kansas slowly
moving east will allow for convection to develop this afternoon near
and in advance of the feature within a broad warm sector. Anemic
shear profiles and modest instability will help mitigate widespread
severe weather concerns, although a stronger storm with gusty winds
cannot be ruled out. Activity will tend to wane during the
evening with boundary layer cooling. A second round of
thunderstorms will be possible late overnight to around sunrise,
although confidence is lower with scenario. Several model members
develop convection during the late evening over NW ks, and send
this cluster eseward. There is some potential for additional
convection, perhaps from thunderstorm outflow, to spawn renewed
thunderstorms near or across the western sections of the forecast
area late tonight.

Friday: uncertainty remains to the aforementioned coverage of
convection at sunrise across the forecast area, and this will likely
have influence on the degree of destabilization for later in the day.

An upper trough over the northern CONUS will provide a glancing shot
of ascent as a weak cold front approaches far NW mo before stalling.

Several models suggest redevelopment ahead of the front, perhaps
focused on residual outflow differential heating boundaries within
the warm sector. Deep layer shear remains weak, but assuming
moderate instability can develop by afternoon in the wake of
potential am storms, a few strong storms will be possible with brief
strong wind gusts and small hail. Convection should clear the area
during the late evening and overnight hours.

Saturday and beyond: heights will rise and upper ridging builds into
the central conus. The end result will be a continued period of hot
and humid conditions. Afternoon highs will warm into the 90s for
most areas during the holiday weekend, with heat indicies reaching
the middle 90s.

a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms will persist this
afternoon through the early morning hours. Expect overall conditions
to remainVFR.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
