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.

Short term Today through Wednesday... Upper low centered near
yellowstone early this morning will move east and away from us
today. On Wednesday a short wave ridge will be over our cwa.
For today, however, the low will still be close enough to continue
a chance of showers in the boise mountains and central idaho
mountains. Showers will end tonight. Air mass looks too stable
for thunderstorms. Partly cloudy skies will be found elsewhere
today with high temps about 3 degrees warmer than Monday in idaho
and 5-10 degrees warmer than Monday in oregon. Wednesday will
be mostly sunny and about 10 degrees warmer than today in all
areas. Winds will be light to moderate northwest today, then
light and variable tonight and Wednesday.
Long term Wednesday night through Tuesday. The ridge of high
pressure will give way to a trough of low pressure Thursday and
Friday. Models are in good agreement that this trough will have|
little in the way of moisture to work with. This will limit shower
activity to mountain areas of baker county oregon and central idaho
Thursday and Friday afternoon. Another ridge trough transition is
expected for the weekend with ridging Saturday and troughiness on
Sunday. Shower activity Sunday will be limited to central idaho and
areas to the east. Temperatures will remain at or just above normal
through the period.
Aviation With the center of low pressure moving east of the area,
shower activity will be reduced, and limited to the afternoon and
evening hours today. Kbke, and kmyl stand the best chance of seeing
impacts, andVFR conditions will be the general rule. Surface winds
will favor a northwest direction and will be in the 10 to 15 knot
range. Winds aloft near 10 kft msl: west northwest 15-25 kts.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
