Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Short term (tonight through Thursday)
issued at 250 pm cdt Wed aug 23 2017
another quiet and beautiful day across the upper mississippi river
valley under northwest flow and surface ridge in area. Slightly more
moisture to work across wisconsin in low to mid layers for daytime
cumulus once again.
Still watching short wave trough upstream that will swing through
area tonight and into Thursday morning. Feature looks strong enough
to sustain showers that are showing up now over far northern
minnesota into manitoba. Short term models in relatively good
agreement with bulk of rain threat after midnight, and with higher
confidence now, have been trying to boost rain chances up, which
could linger into Thursday morning.
With wave passage by Thursday, still banking on any lingering light
rain or showers to dwindle as morning GOES on, eventually stopping
altogether by afternoon, even though some guidance suggests it will
hold on longer. Last place for rain to end could be western areas.
Temperatures remain below normal and could be held down a bit with
any lingering cloud cover as well.
Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 250 pm cdt Wed aug 23 2017
while not much in the way of impactful weather is expected at least
through the weekend, interesting forecast coming up with
uncertainties with rain.
Will be watching slow moving short wave materialize over central
corn belt by Thursday night with some cyclogenesis expected in
response. Warm air advection and moisture transport will likely|
trigger showers in lift zone, which could spread in from the west
southwest going into Friday. Better instability remains well west
though so will honor thunder-free forecast.
Pace at which this feature moves east looks slow so lots of
uncertainties on how widespread any of this advection zone
convection will be, but rain chances will continue into the
23.12z medium range guidance suggests wave could intensify a bit
over the weekend, and possibly become a closed low system. Rain
chances raised as feature passes through and then will have to watch
where this meanders into next week. May have to wait for stronger
impulse in northern flow to buckle and cleanse all this out
during next week, but long ways out yet.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Thursday night)
issued at 1127 pm cdt Wed aug 23 2017
scattered showers will move across the region early this morning
as a shortwave pushes through the area. Given the higher based
nature to this activityVFR conditions will continue. Look for
ceilings in the 5 to 8 kft range as the showers move through. The
showers should end at klse by 11z and by 15z at krst. Clouds will
then scatter out and clear at klse Thursday afternoon with high
to mid level clouds persisting at krst through the evening hours.

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.
