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 through Sunday)
issued at 352 am cdt Sat may 25 2019
for Saturday, a few light rain showers and isolated thunderstorms
will continue to move eastward giving way to dry conditions through
the early afternoon. High temperatures will rise into the 70s. Rain
showers and isolated thunderstorms return on Saturday night and
Sunday morning. Current model runs show less instability across the
region resulting in a decrease in confidence for severe weather.
Despite severe weather not being anticipated at this time,
thunderstorms could still produce some small hail up to a half inch
and gusty winds up to 50 mph.
Active weather continues into Sunday. For most of Sunday, rain and
thunderstorms will not be severe. Severe chances increase late
Sunday afternoon and into the evening as instability reaches its
maximum. CAPE values will approach 3000 j kg across south central
and into southwest nebraska which will help to fuel strong to severe
storms. Storms are expected to start off as discrete supercells
before eventually becoming more of a multicellular line of
thunderstorms. Therefore, hail will be the primary threat to begin
the event before strong winds become the main focus later into
Long term (Sunday night through Friday)
issued at 352 am cdt Sat may 25 2019
active weather will be the main concern headed into the extended
period as a series of disturbances moves across the central plains
from Monday through early Wednesday. Continued rain and isolated
thunderstorm chances are expected across western and north central
nebraska through the middle of next week as a result of these
disturbances. Heavy rainfall will bring a continued concern of
flooding to portions of the northern sandhills and north central
nebraska. New rainfall totals through Wednesday morning are
anticipated to be in the 1.5 to 2 inch range with the heaviest
rainfall across north of highway 2.
Quieter and drier weather returns for Wednesday through the rest of
the week. A few isolated chances of rain and thunderstorms returns
late in the week, but confidence in development as well as locations
of potential impact remain low.
For temperatures in the extended period, highs will start off in the
upper 60s to upper 70s on Monday before dropping significantly on
Tuesday. Highs on Tuesday will only range from mid 50s across
northern nebraska to the mid 60s towards the i-80 corridor.
Temperatures will then steadily rise through the end of the week|
with highs back in the 70s by Friday. Overnight lows follow a
similar trend, starting in the 50s Sunday night, reaching a low in
the low to upper 40s Tuesday night and returning to the 50s by
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night)
issued at 1153 pm cdt Fri may 24 2019
generally low aviation concerns the next 24 hrs underVFR
conditions. Latest satellite imagery and surface obs show partly
cloudy skies mainly in the form of middle clouds. Light winds will
prevail tonight with northerly breezes picking up early tomorrow
then becoming southeasterly to easterly by the late
afternoon early evening. Otherwise, sunny to mostly sunny skies
are expected. Thereafter low-end chances for showers and
thunderstorms exist across southwestern neb. However, confidence
in occurrence is low and thus no mention in the klbf taf.
Issued at 352 am cdt Sat may 25 2019
river levels have been relatively steady on elkhorn river at
atkinson and ewing this afternoon and evening. Highest at the former
where it is above minor flood stage with the latest reading at 8.38
ft. A flood warning remains in effect for west central holt county
through Sunday morning. Elsewhere, a flood warning also remains in
effect in northern brown county where water continues to over
top pine canyon dam on the plum creek. This warning GOES into mid
morning today. Lastly, a flood advisory continues until 10 am
today for the keya paha river in northeast keya paha and west
central boyd county. River levels upstream, notably wewela on the
keya paha, have started to go down thus the threat is expected to
lower early today.
Looking ahead, storms and significant rainfall totals are possible
Sunday night through the first half of the week. A flood watch is in
effect Sunday evening through Tuesday afternoon. The heaviest
widespread rain is expected to occur Sunday night, Monday night, and
Tuesday. A lull in activity is expected during the daytime Monday.
Overall, total rainfall amounts of 1 to 2 inches are forecast with
locally higher amounts possible across the northern sandhills and
northern nebraska in this time frame. The additional rainfall will
increase the potential for flooding due to already saturated soils,
increased runoff, and high water tables.

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.
