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.

an upper level ridge will dominate the weather picture today
bringing above normal temperatures and dry conditions across the
region. Upper level moisture will spill over the ridge centered
across utah and western co to bring high clouds over NE colorado.
Some weak stability near mountain top could result in a mountain
wave into the morning hours. Temperatures will feel more spring-like
with highs near 70 on the plains and 50s in the mountains. Light
southerly winds will create reduced humidity levels over the eastern
plains by the afternoon hours. With winds and humidity levels in the
teens over southern lincoln county some increased fire risk exists,
however there is no concern for red flag as fuels are still fairly
wet. Tonight will see some reprieve from the cooler temperatures
with help from some increased cloud cover bringing lows into the
upper 30s to lower 40s over portions of the plains. Some areas could
see still lows in the 20s to 30s with snow cover and drainage.

a flat upper level ridge will be over the area on Wed with west to
southwest flow aloft. This will lead to a dry and rather warm day
as highs rise into the 70's across nern co.
By Thu the flow aloft will become more southwest as an upper level
trough approaches from the western us. A cool front will move
into northeast co during the day and then back its way into the
urban corridor by late aftn. Combination of increasing diffluent
flow aloft, unstable lapse rates and mid level ascent, by thu
evening, should lead to development of showers and a few tstms
across nern co. The best chc would probably be along and north of
denver to akron line. Highs on Thu will drop back into the 60s
over nern co.
For late Thu night into Fri the main upper level trough will move
into the area as a stronger cold front moves across nern co. As a|
result, precip should become more widespread from the mountains
across the plains due to favorable mid level ascent, lapse rates
and upslope component. In addition, an axis of stronger winds
aloft, will move across SRN co which will put most of the area in
favored left front quadrant for enhanced lift. Meanwhile there is
some disagreement among the models as to snow levels on fri. The
nam basically has snow levels below 5500 ft by 12z while the
ecwmf and GFS hold off the rain to snow transition until fri
aftn evening across the plains.
By Fri night both the ECMWF and GFS have the main part of the upper
level trough moving into nebraska with precip decreasing across the
area in the evening hours. However, despite the main upper level
trough moving east, both the ECMWF and GFS continue to show NRN co
on the favorable side of an upper level jet overnight with upslope
flow continuing in and near the foothills. Thus, not totally out
of the question, there still could be some precip enhancement
overnight in and near the higher terrain.
For the weekend the ECMWF and GFS have differing solutions with a
2nd piece of energy that moves into the great basin. The ecmwf
moves this system due south into the swrn us, which would lead to
a generally dry pattern with moderating temps by sun. Meanwhile
the GFS has an upper level low that moves across the area on sun.
Thus this would lead to a cool and unsettled pattern. This far out
really hard to say which solution is best so will use a blended

vfr conditions will prevail through the period. Light winds from
the south will continue through 20z when they turn more SE then
back to drainage around 05z. Speeds will stay under 10 kts.

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.
