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.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 300 am cst Wed jan 23 2019
yesterday's storm system ended up having a slower departure than
expected. Nevertheless, snow has finally exited the area to the
east and skies are gradually clearing from west to east.
Today should be mostly clear, and westerly winds should allow for
a bit of a warmup. High temperatures for today are a little
uncertain, and our forecast could end up being too high in some
spots, especially areas that saw significant snowfall yesterday.
The current expectation is for highs to range from the low 30s in
the southeast to to the low 40s in the west and northwest.
Late tonight, an arctic front will push through the area. This
will bring another shot of strong northerly winds. Gusts of at
least 35 mph appear likely through Thursday morning.
In this cold air advection, we also may see some light snow
develop. Models have backed off on the QPF over the last day or
two, but it appears that we should at least have some flurries in
the area early Thursday morning.
With the combination of flurries, strong winds, and falling
temperatures, Thursday will feel quite unpleasant outside. Highs
are expected to only be in the teens to mid 20s, and wind chill
values will range from -10 to 10 degrees through the entire day
and into Thursday night.
Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 300 am cst Wed jan 23 2019
much like today, we are expecting a bit of a warmup on Friday and
Saturday as the coldest air shifts east of the area. I admit that
the term "warmup" is being used a bit liberally here, as highs
are only forecast to reach the 30s to low 40s each day.
We will see a few subtle, weak upper level waves rotate around
the main upper trough over eastern canada. Therefore its possible|
that we see some light snow or flurries at times during this
period, but impacts appear to be minimal at this point.
Sunday is looking like our best chance for a "real" warmup with
highs forecast to reach the 40s low 50s thanks to downsloping
This will be short-lived, though. Another, more substantial wave
and surface cold front are forecast to move through on Monday.
This will lead to significantly colder temperatures on Tuesday.
Raw model output would say that this arctic push would rival the
cold air that we we will see tomorrow. That said, we've seen
model data be too cold in the days 5-7 period a couple times over
the past week or two. For now, we have highs forecasted to remain
in the 20s and low 30s each day. If models continue their signal,
there is a chance that these temperatures will be lowered further
in upcoming forecasts.
Aviation (for the 06z kgri kear tafs through 06z Wednesday)
issued at 1147 pm cst Tue jan 22 2019
skies are clearing from west to east. Expect the clearing line to
reach the terminal between 08z and 10z.
Then expect mostly clear skies through the majority of the taf
period, with only mid level clouds expected to develop late
Prevailing winds will be westerly through Wednesday and will
become northwesterly to northerly Wednesday night as another cold
front moves through the area.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
