Marine Weather and Tides
Denver, CO

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 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.

Update
Issued at 802 pm mdt Wed jul 18 2018
upper ridge to the west of colorado with a dry northwest flow
aloft. No storms anywhere this evening over northern colorado and
no forecast changes needed.

Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 248 pm mdt Wed jul 18 2018
dry west northwest flow aloft will remain in place through
Thursday. We're on the northern fringe of any mid level moisture
so expect any convection to be confined to southern colorado and
points south. The dry conditions, combined with further warm
advection and downslope flow, will produce a hot summer day on
Thursday with highs pushing close to 100f.

Fire danger will be elevated due to the hot and dry conditions,
but winds will be lighter than those observed across the
mountains, high valleys, and northern foothills today.

Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 248 pm mdt Wed jul 18 2018
Friday and Saturday there will be an increased chance for late
day showers and thunderstorms. Saturday the precipitable water
(pw) is forecast to be around 1.00 inch.

Sunday the GFS forecast sounding shows pw values reaching 1.32
inches. Convection will persist through the day Sunday and
Monday. Additionally, Monday there will be a slight cool down as
the ridge flattens. Chances for showers and storms will continue
with high pws Tuesday and Wednesday with northwest flow aloft.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Thursday evening)
issued at 802 pm mdt Wed jul 18 2018
vfr with skies clearing overnight. Surface boundary over the
northeast plains headed towards local terminals and will be at
kden just after 03z, and then into bjc apa around 04z with winds
shifting back to the northeast around 10kt. This will delay the
return to drainage flow until after midnight. No storms expected
through Wednesday under continued dry and subsident airmass.

Bou watches warnings advisories

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.
