Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis High pressure will remain across the region into the
weekend. Moisture will increase across the south today and move
further north Friday into the weekend.
Discussion A nice summer morning across the state of utah and
southwest wyoming this morning, under mostly clear skies and
temperatures warming into the mid 70s and mid 80s by 9 am. There
is a clear dividing line of the moisture that has parked over
southern utah, which sits about king canyon to nephi to wellington
with dewpoints in the 50s and 60s to the south, and 30s and 40s to
the north. Precipitable water values are expected to surpass 1.25
inches to 1.5 inches in the far southwest corner of utah. All
ingredients are pointing to an active monsoonal storm day across
the south with our biggest concern flash flooding.
The going forecast is on point, so no updates planned at this
time. Will focus on the developing coverage this afternoon and
look ahead to how things play out for tomorrow. Including parts of
the previous discussion below.
An elongated upper level ridge is in place across the west this
morning, with the center of the ridge roughly located across
southern nevada. The center of the ridge will shift eastward
through the morning and into the afternoon. This will help to
continue to draw moisture north... And also change the main storm
motions expected with any convection today.
To set up today's convection... Model guidance indicates 1000-1500
j kg of SBCAPE will develop across portions of southwestern and
south central utah. With little deep layer shear, the genesis of|
convection will be across the higher terrain, particularly the
southern utah mountains. Corfidi vectors trend toward a westward
drift of any convection. As this convection will be outflow
dominant, much of the cam guidance supports convection organizing
into one or more main clusters on a common cold pool and
transitioning across the axis of instability set up across the
lower deserts of utah. This includes southwestern and south
Given the expected convective evolution this afternoon and
evening, the elevated moisture levels, and the nature of the
terrain across southwestern and south central utah, hoisted a
flash flood watch for these areas. Started the watch around 18z as
convection tends to trend early for the brian head burn scar... But
the main threat for southwest south central utah will trend later
in the afternoon and into the evening.
Aviation ExpectingVFR conditions at the slc terminal through
the day with some scattered clouds. Southeast winds in place will
occasionally be light and variable this morning before shifting to
the northwest between 17z to 19z.
Slc watches warnings advisories
Ut... Flash flood watch through this evening for utz019-020-518.

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.
