Marine Weather and Tides
8/26/2020 The 7 day forecast is taking about 5 seconds to load but it will eventually load. NOAA is still working on it.
8/18/2020 NOAA continues to have trouble. Wind guest will occasionally be left off graphs. I am working with NOAA to resolve the issue.
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

. New Short Term, Aviation .
SHORT TERM. /NEW/ Update: Radiational cooling overnight has been inhibited by elevated northerly wind speeds and resultant mixing. Hourly temperatures are trending a degree or two warmer than guidance as a result, although the majority of counties included in the Freeze Warning will still have locations that drop to 32 or lower through 730 AM when lows should be achieved. No changes are planned for the current Freeze Warning configuration. At 9 AM, this morning's Freeze Warning will expire, and the existing Freeze Watch for tonight will be upgraded to a warning across our remaining southeastern counties. Other than the small adjustments to temperatures and winds, no significant changes were made with this update.
Previous Discussion: /Through Tuesday/
The secondary cold front has cleared the CWA to the south as of 11pm. Significantly cooler and drier air is advecting in behind it, and a majority of the area should fall to near or below freezing by daybreak. The exception will be our southeastern zones which will probably only reach the mid 30s prior to sunrise. Breezy north winds will stick around through this morning, resulting in wind chills in the teens and lower 20s. No changes have been made to the existing Freeze Warning already in effect.
Despite the cold start and persistent cold advection, sunny skies will still allow us to warm into the upper 40s and low 50s this afternoon with gradually diminishing winds. By this evening, winds will lessen and return to the south. However, even with the return of southerly flow, the very cold and dry arctic airmass in place will allow overnight lows to plummet into the 20s. The current Freeze Watch will be upgraded to a Freeze Warning later today for the few remaining locations that will be experiencing their first freeze of the season. This will be the final freeze product issued through the winter. Lighter wind speeds but colder temperatures will combine for a second straight day of wind chill values in the teens and low 20s through Tuesday morning. Readings will rebound in the afternoon thanks to sunny skies and warm advection with highs in the 50s and low 60s.
LONG TERM. /Issued 256 AM CST Mon Nov 30 2020/ /Tuesday Night Onward/
Our next cold front will enter our northwestern border Tuesday night, clearing our southern/eastern borders by midday Wednesday. Re-established southerly flow should allow some moisture return into the eastern half of the CWA ahead of the front Tuesday night. However, its magnitude remains a bit questionable and will largely determine how much precipitation we end up seeing in the Wednesday to Wednesday night timeframe. Showers are expected to develop just ahead of the front early Wednesday morning. The best chances for rain on Wednesday will be near and east of I-35 where low-level moisture and lift from an upper low will coincide the most favorably. With temperatures well-above freezing, no wintry precipitation is expected. One caveat would be a southward shift in the departing surface low's trajectory Wednesday night into early Thursday morning. If this occurs, wrap-around moisture would increase the likelihood of wintry precipitation along the Red River as temperatures drop to near or just below freezing. As of now, the low is expected to track just far enough north to keep any frozen precipitation out of our area, but the potential will continue to be monitored in future updates.
The rest of the work week will be quite chilly with temperatures running 10 to 15 degrees below normal for most locations through Friday. Thursday will be the coldest day as cold air advection behind Wednesday's front will dilute any significant warming. Highs will only top out in the 40s and low 50s with blustery conditions keeping wind chills in the 20s and 30s through midday. High temperatures will moderate into the 50s and 60s beginning this weekend. Despite several passing upper lows, inappreciable moisture will allow dry weather to persist through the middle of next week.
AVIATION. /NEW/ /12z TAFs/
VFR/SKC will prevail through the period. The current breezy north winds will decrease through the rest of this morning and should generally be around 10 kts throughout the day. By this evening, they'll gradually turn westerly and eventually southerly heading into Tuesday morning.

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.
