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 453 am cdt Fri mar 22 2019
main issue will be determining highs for today along with chances
of rain later tonight.
Today's temperatures could be a touch warmer than Thursday as the
upper level highly amplified ridge slips a little to the east,
putting us into southwest flow aloft, ahead of the approaching
negatively tilted trough with a closed low. Although the sky cover
will be increasing as the trough approaches, high clouds should
still let in enough sunshine to boost temperatures into the lower
60s. Wind will pick up a bit more and from the southeast. The
east component of the wind could hamper highs, especially if sky
cover clouds up faster than anticipated.
Warm air advection and isentropic lift increases tonight as the
low-level jet axis approaches from the west. The best low-level
convergence occurs on the nebraska side of the cwa, and anticipate
a better chance of rain there. Went with consraw for low
temperatures with the expected increase in warm air advection.
Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 453 am cdt Fri mar 22 2019
the namnest indicates a potential break or at the very least
slacking off of precip toward mid-morning to early afternoon, but
i did not want to back off too much as timing could be very
tricky when dealing with such small scale features. By late
Saturday afternoon, chances of rain will increase along with
thunderstorm chances as instability increases as the mid-level|
cyclone approaches. Thunderstorm chances will continue into the
evening before instability wanes into the overnight. Cooled off
temperatures due to the thick cloudiness anticipated, and mid-
level trough aloft.
The cool-off will last the rest of the weekend into the early work
week before a broad ridge builds into our region and trends warmer
into Thursday as the ridge axis passes and we land in southwest
flow in advance of the next approaching trough, with highs
possibly pushing 70 degrees for most areas. I did add some thunder
in for Wednesday night with increased elevated instability once
again, however, with this go around, moisture return does not look
very impressive. This would lead me to believe that a severe risk
is not all that probable for now.
Aviation (for the 06z kgri kear tafs through 06z Saturday)
issued at 1247 am cdt Fri mar 22 2019
main concern overnight right away is visibility as kear has
already dipped to MVFR for a short time. I expect that this could
continue overnight into early morning, but this looks like it will
be quite patchy in nature, so amendments to the forecast may be in
our future. A mid level deck of clouds eventually makes its way
into the forecast by late in the forecast Friday evening.

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.
