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.

The upper level low pressure over northwest utah will maintain
unsettled weather across much of the region through early Friday.
The low pressure will exit the area and bring a break in
widespread precipitation Friday night through the weekend. The
next storm system will move across utah early next week.
Discussion The upper trough centered over the great basin is
showing multiple circulation centers this morning. These
circulations will consolidate into one center over northwest utah
this afternoon, then lift northeast toward the northern plains
later tonight through Friday. A residual upper trough will remain
behind the exiting upper low, with this feature merging with the
next upper low moving into the pacific northwest early in the
The canyon downslope high wind event for areas north of slc is
winding down late this morning. Decreasing easterly near 700 mb
winds and the retreat of the tight northeast surface gradient back
into western central wyoming signals the end of the strongest
winds, though gusty easterly winds will continue through around
mid-afternoon. Will keep the current high wind warning going
through the scheduled expiration at 19z.
Anticipating an expansion of convective precip across much of the
forecast area this afternoon. Further destabilization of the air
mass will occur as slightly cooler mid-level air moves in from
the south as the upper low becomes organized across northwest
utah. The favorable air mass along with increased dynamic thermal
support for lift will lead to widespread precip with the heaviest
rain mountain snow concentrated north and east of the upper low
center through early this evening. Convection will transition to
more terrain-based activity Friday afternoon early evening, with|
additional diurnal convection returning Saturday afternoon.
The upper low settling south along the west coast this weekend,
though fairly far removed from utah, will begin to impact western
utah as early as Saturday afternoon. The driving force will be
expected shortwaves ejecting east-northeast from the upper low and
across the great basin. The air mass will still be favorably moist
with decent diurnal heating serving to destabilize the air mass
for the afternoon early evening hours. The best areal coverage
will likely hug the utah nevada border this weekend. Widespread
precip will return as the upper low turns east and moves across
the southern half of the great basin early in the week.
Aviation Expect periods of showers to redevelop in the vicinity
of the slc terminal between 17-19z with ceilings descending to
high mfvr lowVFR levels. Southerly winds may become erratic and
gusty near showers... Shifting to the northwest between 18-20z.
There is a 10% chance of a vicinity thunderstorm between 21-23z.
Showers will gradually decrease in coverage after 00z, with the
diurnal wind shift to SE expected around 03-04z.
Slc watches warnings advisories
Ut... High wind warning until 1 pm mdt this afternoon for utz001-002.

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.
