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.

rain showers will continue to gradually dissipate this afternoon
as the surface low now over south central mo continues to shift
eastward, and its associated deformation zone weakens. A few
additional light showers and perhaps a few flurries are possible
this evening through the early overnight hours as a trailing upper
wave drops through eastern sd NE and into far northwest mo, but
the shortwave trough will become embedded in the broader upper-
level flow overnight, weakening any impact from the system as it
moves into more subsident air across mo.
Lingering cloud cover and northerly flow will keep temperatures
below normal on Tuesday, then a warming trend will begin Wednesday
and continue through the rest of the work week. Recent rainfall
should help fuels start to green up and keep soils damp for a few
days, possibly keeping fire danger in check this week even as
temperatures start to rise. The next potential for impactful|
weather will come this weekend as another trough pushes lee-side
cyclogenesis out into the plains. Currently, it appears the low
will take a more northerly track than today's system and the
heaviest precipitation will remain north of the cwa, but will have
to continue to monitor as models have continued to shift the
track over the last several iterations.

vfr CIGS and vis will prevail through the next 24 hours while the
wind backs from the northeast to the northwest as the system that
brought Monday's rain moves farther east. There might be a few
showers that cross the kstj terminal in northwest mo, but it looks
likely that sites further south will be dry.

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.
