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.

a low chance for a stray sprinkle in east-central minnesota this
evening, but otherwise dry under partly cloudy skies tonight across
the northland. Lows in the 50s with winds becoming calm.
On Wednesday a weak cold front drifts into the international border
region across northern minnesota, which could provide enough layer
moisture combined with the diurnal heating to produce a few light
rain showers. Otherwise a warm day across the northland with highs
in the low to mid 80s - except cooler by the lakeshore with a light
east northeast wind.
Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)

Wednesday night through Thursday night finds upper level and surface
ridging over the area. On Friday, model differences begin with
respect to the upper flow. The ECMWF has a cut off low moving
through the upper midwest, the GFS has the closed low much farther
south near arkansas, while the gem leans toward the ecmwf. Used a
blend which features just enough forcing over the area to generate
some spotty showers and storms, which lasts through Friday night. A
positively tilted upper trof is forecast to swing through the
forecast area Saturday and Saturday night. An elongated area of
vorticity accompanies this trof and provides enough forcing for more|
showers and storms through Saturday evening, diminishing late as the
trof and forcing depart. Additional spotty activity may occur on
Sunday as additional weak pieces of vorticity clip the area before
ridging returns. Upper level and surface ridging cover the region
Sunday night and Monday.

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.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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.
