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.

903 pm mdt Sun jun 24 2018
Discussion Dry conditions expected. Warming conditions
continue Monday for most of the area, though a dry cold front
will cool values down across baker and northern harney counties in
oregon. For other areas, Monday looks to be the warmest day of
the week ahead of the cold front which will bring cooler
temperatures on Tuesday. No significant updates to current
forecast planned this evening.
Aviation Vfr. Mostly clear. Surface winds variable 10 kts or
less. Winds aloft near 10k feet msl mainly northwest 5-15kts. Dry
cold frontal passage expected in southeast oregon late Monday
morning and in southwest idaho Monday afternoon. Winds will switch
to the west-northwest with gusts up to 30 kts.
Short term... Tonight through Tuesday... Mostly clear skies will
continue overnight as an upper level ridge moves east of the area.
Increasing southwest flow aloft, in advance of a strong upper
level trough, will move in early Monday. This trough will bring a
dry cold front through the area, entering southeast oregon Monday
morning and moving through southwest idaho in the afternoon. From
roughly ontario south and east, where frontal timing will allow a
significant amount of heating, folks will see the hottest day of
the year so far. Tuesday, behind the front, temps will be notably
cooler - down around 10 degrees from Monday in many locations.
Monday afternoon and evening will be breezy. No precipitation is
expected in the short term.
Long term... Tuesday night through Sunday... A cold front,
currently timed to cross our area late Wednesday, will be followed
by an upper level trough which is forecast to deepen over the
northern intermountain region Thursday and Friday. Ahead of the
front, highs on Wednesday will be 5 to 10 degrees above normal.
Models agree that Thursday and Friday will be cooler, but they
still differ on the amplitude of the trough and amount of cooling.
They do agree that precipitation, starting Thursday morning, will
be confined mainly to baker county oregon and the west central
idaho and boise mountains.
Friday night through Sunday night... Slightly cooler as troughing
and northwest flow dominate the local forecast area. Most of the
energy and moisture will remain in the northeastern part of the
cwa, so anticipate showery conditions there while clear conditions
are expected elsewhere. Afternoon through early evening
thunderstorms are likely across the extreme eastern mountains.
High temperatures will climb to only reach 5 degrees below normal
while lows will sink to around 2 degrees below normal.

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.
