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 (through late Monday afternoon)
issued at 301 pm cdt Sun jun 25 2017
area of light rain currently across central kansas is primarily
forced by weak low-level moisture convergence and low mid level
frontogenesis. Models suggest this area of forcing will translate
east southeast with light rain trying to move into far western
and southern portions of the forecast area overnight tonight. With
forcing fairly transient and not particularly strong, ~10,000
foot dry layer will be difficult to overcome, and any top-down
saturation will certainly take time. Have only schc chc pops
tonight, mainly for portions of southeast missouri. Could be a
case where precipitation does break through the dry layer it is
just a few sprinkles and does not accumulate.
Lows tonight across the area will be seasonably cool with most
locations in the 50s. MOS guidance tonight looked reasonable across
the northern 1 2 of the area where a more clear sky is expected.
However, did lean a few degrees above MOS numbers across portions of
central and southeast missouri where thicker midlevel clouds are
expected overnight tonight.
Believe Monday morning will start off dry for most areas, with
possible exception of some isolated showers or sprinkles down across
far southern sections of the forecast area. Shortwave trough will
approach the mid-missouri valley late Monday afternoon, which should
help produce isolated-widely scattered showers and thunderstorms
predominantly affecting portions of northeast missouri and west-
central illinois. Highs on Monday should be similar to that of today
across much of the area. Due to most areas seeing plenty of sunshine
during the peak heating hours, went above MOS numbers a couple of
degrees for high temperatures.
Long term (Monday night through next Sunday)
issued at 301 pm cdt Sun jun 25 2017
it still looks like the upper pattern that will be somewhat
amplified on Monday night will turn zonal by Wednesday as the great
lakes trough moves off to the east and the west coast ridge dampens|
out. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms will be moving
out of the region on Monday night as a weak shortwave trough moves
southeast of missouri and illinois in the northwesterly flow
aloft. Then the gfs ECMWF still shows a brief period of dry
weather from Tuesday into early Wednesday before a shortwave
trough moves across the midwest bringing an attendant cold front
into northern missouri by late Wednesday Wednesday night. Both
models show a second, deeper trough moving across the midwest late
in the week as the cold front moves farther south into the cwa.
The upper flow will be aligned with the front which will cause the
front to move slowly south across the area. There will be plenty
of moisture over the area with pwats between 1.5-2.0 inches. This
will set up the potential for some locally heavy rainfall over
parts of the area late in the week. Will have to watch future
model runs to refine where this potential sets up. By next
weekend... The GFS and ecwmf show the upper trough deepening as it
passes through missouri and illinois causing the cold front to
push through the cwa.
Temperatures are still on track to go from below normal on Tuesday
to above normal on Thursday to back below normal over the weekend as
the front moves south of the area. This is reflected well in the
gfs and GEFS mean MOS guidance.

vfr for at least the first 0-6 hours and probably longer. Gusty
northwest winds will diminish after sunset and winds will turn
westerly after 03z. A disturbance will move across the region
tomorrow, bringing widely scattered shra tsra to parts of the
Lsx watches warnings advisories

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
