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.

High pressure will maintain dry and stagnant conditions with valley
inversions through the weekend. A pattern change mid to late next
week will open the door for a couple modest systems with light to
moderate precipitation amounts possible. With periods of snow in the
sierra, plan for travel impacts at times over the thanksgiving
holiday weekend although it is too soon to nail down details.
Poor mixing and slightly degraded air quality continue to result
from high pressure and strong thermal inversions. High pressure
will remain anchored off the california coast through the weekend
continuing these stagnated conditions.
Otherwise, there will be a weak, but dry, frontal passage today.
This wave will not do much in the way of scouring lower nevada
valley pollutants, but will mix out higher valleys in the sierra
somewhat. Expect a slight increase in ridge winds along the
sierra crest as flow turns easterly with slightly cooler
temperatures through Sunday.
The southern portion of a split-energy system approaches the
california coast Monday. Easterly flow in nevada will turn
southerly with temperatures beginning to warm a little. Expect mid
and high clouds to begin increasing from southwest to northeast
Monday through Monday night. Models remain consistent with this
being the first wave to begin eroding the ridge resulting in the
mid late week pattern shift. Boyd
Long term Tuesday onward...
forecast changes are coming starting midweek with the long-awaited
pattern change looking to finally take shape. Have raised pops and
precipitation totals from Wednesday through Saturday in addition to
increasing wind speeds.
There still exist differences in exact details between models and
ensembles, but the overwhelming majority are pointing toward a
longwave trough setting up along the west coast by the middle of
next week. Several shortwaves moving through the trough will bring
rounds of valley rain and mountain snow to the region along with
periods of gusty winds Wednesday into next weekend. None of these
storms are particularly strong, but with several of them,
precipitation totals could add up.
Signs point toward snow in the mountains, with possibly a mix of
rain and snow for the tahoe basin and communities along highway 395
in mono county. Valleys in western nevada are most likely to remain
as rain, but localized areas above 5500 feet in elevation could see
brief periods of snow, including geiger grade into virginia city. It
is too early to put definitive numbers on QPF and snow totals, but
with it being a busy holiday travel period, the anticipated weather
could bring significant impacts to travel in the sierra. -dawn
ContinuedVFR conditions with light winds as the region remains
under the influence of a strong ridge. Minor slantwise visibility
reductions are possible due to haze trapped under valley inversions.
Smoke from wildfires in california will mainly remain west of the
sierra crest, with the best chances for smoke encroachment to be
into northeast california.
Changes are coming by the middle of next week with chances for wet
and windy weather potentially affecting aviation interests during
the busy thanksgiving travel period. Please see the long term
section of the discussion for additional details. -dawn

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.
