Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

Aloft, at 500 mb, a 534 dam low over the bering strait
willd drift to the south on Sunday and become absorbed in
the long wave trough south of kodiak on Monday. Several
shortwaves associated with a low in the western gulf of alaska
will move across the interior through Tuesday. The long wave
trough will weaken slowly through middle of this week, then
deepen again through the second half of this week. Each of the
short waves will bring a band of showers and isolated
thunderstorms to the interior through Tuesday.
Surface... 1028 mb high north of the arctic coast of alaska will
persist through tue. The thermal trough will persist across the
central interior through Tuesday. A 984 mb low will track across
the aleutians late Monday into Tuesday.
Central and eastern interior... The thermal trough along with
shortwaves aloft will be the focus for scattered to numerous
showers and a slight chance of isolated thunderstorms Sunday
through Tuesday for the interior. Temperatures will remain near
normal for much of the area through the week.
West coast and western interior: shortwaves moving up from the
gulf of alaska will keep the southern west coast in a showery
regime. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible
from galena south Sunday and Monday.
North slope and brooks range: 1028 mb high north of the arctic
coast of alaska will persist through Mon then weaken tue. This
will cause east winds 25-30 kt along the arctic coast to persist
through tue. This will also cause areas of stratus and fog from|
barrow east through tue. Strong wind headlines out for the eastern
north slope through this afternoon.
hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.
the thermal trough along with shortwaves aloft will be the focus
for scattered to numerous showers and a slight chance of isolated
thunderstorms Sunday through Tuesday for the interior. Expect
0.10-0.25 inch of rain with the showers. Minimum rh values 25 to
35 percent Sunday and Monday afternoons. Higher relative
humidities on Tuesday.
breakup continue along the yukon basin; however, no issues have
been noted so far. The lower reaches of the yukon are still ice
covered and thus residents should continue to monitor the river.
Many of the rivers in the interior will see a rising over the next
few days as the temperatures rise.

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.
