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.

showers will continue to decrease across northeast colorado this
evening and end by midnight. Due to dry air near the surface much
of the precipitation evaporated before reaching the ground.
Lowered pops earlier because of this. If precipitation reaches the
ground expect it to be snow and melt right away. Once the showers
end, the rest of the night is expected to be partly cloudy. A few
flurries can't be ruled out in the mountains, however no
accumulation is expected.
Short term (this evening through Tuesday)

light showers are forming over and near the mountains as expected.
The airmass is also drying, which should limit the extent and
intensity of this convection. Current forecast seems to cover
this adequately, though I did slow down the timing of these
showers by a couple of hours with them decreasing in the early
There is gradual warming through tomorrow with some clouds moving
over. Much of this is mid level and may be wiped out by the front
range, or skip over it. Our forecast has varieties of "partly
cloudy" which looks alright. Northwest winds will mix down again
by midday Tuesday, with temperatures 5-10 degrees above today's.
Long term (Tuesday night through Monday)|
issued at 304 pm mdt Mon mar 19 2018
models have upper ridging to move in and across the CWA Tuesday
night through Thursday. By Thursday night, the upper ridge axis is
east of colorado with southwesterly flow aloft for our cwa. The
qg omega fields show benign to weak upward synoptic scale energy
for the CWA all five periods. The low level winds will basically
adhere to normal diurnal trends with a bit more than normal
downsloping mixed in. For moisture, it is somewhat sparse Tuesday
night through Thursday night. There is a tad of measurable
snowfall, just in the mountains, here and there in the QPF fields,
and nothing on the plains. Will put in or keep some pops and a
tad of QPF in the mountains. For temperatures, Wednesday's highs
will be 3-6 c warmer than Tuesday's. Thursday's highs will be 2-4
c warmer than Wednesday's. For the later day's Friday through
Monday, southwesterly flow aloft is in place through Saturday. A
broad upper trough will move into the CWA Sunday and Monday. The
medium range models do not agree well on this feature.
Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening)
issued at 833 pm mdt Mon mar 19 2018
vfr conditions will prevail tonight and Tuesday. Ceilings of 6000
to 10000 feet will be possible at times tonight. Winds will end
up a south southwest direction around 06z. On Tuesday, winds will
turn northwesterly late in the morning, around 17z with gusts to
around 25 knots.

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.
