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.

Delightful summertime weather continues over northern alaska.
Aloft at 500 mb, light southerly to southwesterly flow continues
over most of northern alaska as a pair of weak upper level lows
one over the central bering sea which is moving west and the
other near the southern panhandle which is moving east are
replaced by a weak ridge building north over the central and
eastern interior. Only weak shortwaves are expected to move north
and northwest out of the gulf of alaksa over the interior over the
next several days. Scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
are expected with these shortwaves as they rotate into the
interior. As a weak high pressure system builds north and east out
of the eastern bering sea over the west coast expect limited
shower activity through Monday as the first weak shortwave moves
over the southern portions of the west coast.
On the north slope a high pressure system to the north of alaska
will produce light winds and low ceilings along the coast and
light winds and partly cloudy conditions to the interior portions
of the north slope.
Temperatures are expected to be near normal with upper 60s and
lower 70s over much of the interior and upper 50s and 60s along
the west coast. Minimum relative humidities will slowly drop over
the interior from the lower 40s and upper 30s Sunday into the 30s
Monday and Tuesday, however winds and temperatures are not
expected to meet red flag criteria.
Recent rains have reduced smoke production over fires in the
western interior however with a drying trend and light winds|
expected tonight and lingering into Monday will need to monitor
potential for smoke moving into tanana and manely hot springs
areas tonight through Monday.
The 12z model suite initialized well against the 12z surface
analysis and verified well against the 18z surface analysis. Model
spread is limited through the middle of next week but displays
increased levels of spread in the long range.
Coastal hazard potential days 3 and 4... None.
Isolated thunderstorms will be confined to the southern and
eastern interior this afternoon and evening as well as Sunday. A
chance of thunderstorms will spread to the north and west along
and south of a bettles to chicken line 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 recent rainfall over the last several days
will produce significant rises on rivers draining the brooks
range and in particular the sag river. Current forecasts keeps
the sag river below action stage over the next few days. Continue

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.
