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.

Issued at 632 pm cdt Wed jun 28 2017
current forecast on track so no changes needed this update period.
Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 325 pm cdt Wed jun 28 2017
forecast challenge for short term continues to focus on shra over
the northeastern quadrant of the cwa. Rainfall rates have
diminished, with rainfall stopping at grand forks... Which should
allow drainage to catchup and reduce street flooding impacts by
the scheduled 330 pm cdt expiration time for the urban and small
Latest ecam guidance continues to have a very good handle on pop
trends and have populated through 09z, when precipitation should
taper off at our furthest northeastern site, baudette. Challenge
with clearing skies from west to east and decreasing winds will
be fog potential. Have added patchy areas of fog for clearing
areas in the 03z... Although with dew points dropping 10 to 15 deg
as well, no mention of dense or widespread fog anticipated. Most
guidance indicating fog (mist) in the 3sm to 5sm range.
Thursday morning will be clear with an short wave ridge aloft.
The next upper wave then moves across the northern tier tomorrow
aftn, with shra tsra spreading west to east across the region in
the mid- to late afternoon. Although ml MUCAPE values of 500 to
1500 j kg possible, bulk shear values only around 25 kts and
threat for severe is low. This thinking lines with SPC day 2
showing entire CWA in general thunder.
Long term (Thursday night through Wednesday)
issued at 325 pm cdt Wed jun 28 2017|
looks like a boundary will slowly move through the forecast area on
fri slowing during the aftn over extreme south fa. Intermittent
showers should persist behind this boundary with some thunder
farther south as sfc based capes reach toward 2000 j kg and little
cin. Meanwhile, high pressure will be poised to head south and
east out of southern saskatchewan. This high will head down into
the upper midwest on Sat providing the region with a dry and
relatively cool start to july.
For sun-wed... The late weekend through midweek period will be
characterized by a building ridge to the lee of the rockies moving
over the northern plains. Look for a reasonably dry period during
this time with an increase in temperatures. Highs should break 80
degrees by mon, then a few degrees higher for independence day.
The next chance for thunder would likely be on wed, as the upper
ridge begins to break down.
Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Thursday evening)
issued at 632 pm cdt Wed jun 28 2017
main challenges will be fog potential and CIGS heights. With light
winds, clearing and significant rainfall across the north half of
the fa, fog and low CIGS a concern overnight. Will likely see at
the least MVFR vsby CIGS later tonight lower conditions certainly
possible. Lowest confidence across the south where less rain fell.
Conditions gradually improve during the day tomorrow.

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.
