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 Saturday)
issued at 329 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
showers and isolated thunderstorms are slowly moving out of the
area. Showers are expected to be completely out of the area in the
next couple hours giving way to drier weather for Friday. Mostly
clear skies will allow temperatures to rise into the 70s by the
The next chance of thunderstorms arrives Friday night as a weak mid-
level shortwave moves across the region. Confidence in development
is low and severe weather is not anticipated. However, brief gusty
winds and small hail up to a half inch could be possible.
Thunderstorm chances remain across south central nebraska (mainly
south of a line from imperial to broken bow). Thunderstorm chances
remain brief only lasting a couple hours early Saturday morning (1am
to 3am cdt) before moving to the east out of our forecast area.
For Saturday, dry conditions return to the area with high
temperatures rising into the 70s once again. A better chance of
thunderstorms arrive on Saturday evening and into Sunday morning.
Ample instability with CAPE values near 1500 j kg and lifted index
values approaching -8c will be present across areas south of a line
from ogallala to broken bow. As a result, any thunderstorms that do
develop have the potential to become severe with hail over an inch
and strong winds up to 60 to 70 mph. At this time, SPC has included
much of western and south central nebraska in slight risk of severe
weather for Saturday night which aligns well with what we are
currently thinking locally. Will be watching this storm potential
over the next day or so and will be making adjustments to the
forecast as needed.
Long term (Saturday night through Thursday)
issued at 329 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
an active pattern starts off the extended period with continued rain
and thunderstorm chances lasting into Sunday. Severe weather risk
remains low, with small hail and gusty winds the primary threat.|
A series of disturbances is forecasted to move across the central
plains from Monday through early Wednesday. This will bring
continued rain and isolated thunderstorm chances to western and
north central nebraska through the middle of next week. While the
week looks dreary, only an inch to two inches is expected across
portions of the northern sandhills. Unfortunately, after several
inches of rain this past week across this region, this area could
see significant effects to rivers and creeks even from minimal
rainfall. Additional flood products or continuation of current flood
products may be necessary as next week approaches.
Temperatures through the extended period will fluctuate a bit. Highs
start off in the 70s on Sunday before dropping over the next couple
days and bottoming out on Tuesday. Highs will range from the low 50s
in the pine ridge region to the low 60s south of a line from
imperial to north platte to o'neill. Temperatures will then slowly
rise through the end of the week with highs back in the 70s by
Thursday and Friday. Overnight lows follow a similar trend, starting
in the 50s Sunday night, reaching a low in the low to mid 40s
Tuesday night and returning to the 50s by Friday night.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning)
issued at 612 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
vfr is generally expected throughout western and north central
nebraska today and tonight.
A lifr fog bank extending across swrn and ncntl nebraska should
disperse 12z-14z this morning.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop
tonight, 06z-10z, affecting scntl nebraska. Note, not all models
show this happening so confidence is low. This storm activity, if
it develops, should remain east of klbf.

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.
