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.

Aloft at 500 mb the upper level 542 dam low west
of saint lawrence island will continue to drift to
the west over the next several days then back down
to the southern bering sea and get absorbed in the long
wave trough by Tuesday morning. Another 536 dam low
will develop over bristol bay Tuesday morning as well.
Models begin to diverge on where this new low center will
end up but overall consensus is the low will remain in the same
general area through Thursday. Weak southerly flow aloft will
dominate most of northern alaska through early next week with
near normal temperatures. Several shortwaves will ride up from
the gulf of alaska and continue to pump moisture and showers
across the southern interior and west coast through the week.
Surface... A 1017 mb high pressure near barrow will shift to the
east on Sunday. Weak low pressure will persist over the interior.
A 995 mb low will develop and move across the central aleutians
Monday afternoon. This low will remain quasi-stationary over
bristol bay through Thursday.
North slope... A high pressure system over the chukchi and
beaufort, and arctic coast will drift slowly east keeping the
central and eastern north slope under stable onshore flow which
will continue to produce low ceilings and fog over much of the
central and eastern coastal areas and mostly cloudy skies inland.
A slow moving shortwave over the brooks range is still producing
scattered showers which will continue to persist through the day
on Sunday. Warm daytime temperatures will continue through Tuesday
for the north slope.
West coast... Rain showers will persist over the uplands
of 208 and 217 this morning then taper off this afternoon.
A weak high pressure systems builds north out of the bering sea|
over the bering strait into Monday. Not much in the way of
convection over the area today. Scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms are expected Monday and Tuesday for much of the
western interior as the atmosphere becomes a little more unstable.
Interior... Another shortwave will move across the southern
interior and produce scattered to numerous showers across the
alaska range. Isolated thunderstorms will be confined to the
southern and eastern interiors this afternoon and evening.
Scattered rain showers and isolated thunderstorms will spread to
the north and west as well on Monday and again on Tuesday. High
temperatures will remain near normal in the upper 60s and lower
70s over the next several days.
Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.
isolated thunderstorms will be confined to the southern and
eastern interiors this afternoon and evening. Scattered showers
and isolated thunderstorms will spread to the north and west as
well on Monday. High temperatures will remain near normal in the
upper 60s and lower 70s over the next several days. Rh values will
remain in the upper 30s and lower 40s over much of the interior
Sunday and drop into the 30s on Monday, however winds and
temperatures are expected to remain below red flag criteria.
warm temperatures aloft will continue over the brooks range
and combined with rainfall over the last several days and
with additional rainfall expected over the next couple days will
produce significant rises on rivers draining the brooks range and
in particular the sag river. Current forecasts bring the sag river
just below action stage over the next few days.

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.
