Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.

Issued at 1033 am mst Thu dec 13 2018
skies are clearing with increased subsidence seen on goes-17 wv.
Winds have decreased over the urban corridor but continue to gust
into the 30 to 35 mph range over eastern counties. Winds are
expected to continue into the late afternoon hours before
decreasing. Forecast is on track with minor adjustments made to
winds and sky grids to account for current conditions.
Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 227 am mst Thu dec 13 2018
high pressure at the surface and aloft will be over the
cwa. A dry northerly flow aloft will be over northern colorado
today. Gusty northerly winds will persist across the east central
plains of colorado through this morning, then decrease as the
surface pressure gradient weakens from north to south over the
area. High wind criteria not expected to be met this early this
morning so I dropped the high wind warning that was in effect for
zones 46 and 47. For today dry and cooler with temperatures near
to slightly below normal. Clear and cold tonight, especially in
the high mountain valleys.
Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 227 am mst Thu dec 13 2018
an upper level ridge will be over the great basin and four
corners region 12z Friday. Mild temperatures will return Friday as
this ridge shifts east across the central rockies during the day
Friday. Highs are expected to climb into the lower 50s over
northeast colorado. On Saturday, flow aloft becomes westerly as a|
upper level trough tracks across the northern rockies. At most,
this system may bring breezy conditions to northern colorado,
though it appears this system will be too far away to bring much
weather. Ridging returns for Sunday, keeping dry conditions in
place. Highs will continue to be mild through the weekend with
readings in the 50s across northeast colorado.
For Monday through Wednesday, models are still trying to resolve
the evolving pattern. An upper level trough moves onto the
california coast Monday and then dives southeast to northern
mexico on Tuesday. There is a slight chance for light snow over
the central mountains with this system. Not much agreement among
the model on Wednesday regarding where the pacific system ends up.
Though it appears any precipitation will remain well south and
east of the area. Temperatures look to stay above normal with
highs staying in the 50s through mid week over northeast colorado.
Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Friday afternoon)
issued at 1033 am mst Thu dec 13 2018
vfr conditions will persist through the period. Winds will be
light with speeds under 7 kts through 20z when they are
anticipated to switch to the NE then around to the SE by 01z with
winds under 8 kts. By 05z this evening winds will move to drainage
and stay from the ssw through 21z tomorrow.

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.
