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.

SHORT TERM. Tonight weak southwesterly flow aloft will continue with southerly flow at the surface. This pattern will keep overnight temperatures on the warmer side and a steady stream of low level moisture coming into the region. Near day break a lee-side surface low will stall over SE CO shifting the surface flow to the southwest promoting one last day of dry, breezy and warm conditions. High temperatures will push into the upper 80s area wide. These conditions will also lead to the potential for elevated fire weather concerns near the Texas/New Mexico state line.
LONG TERM. Early part of the long term period will see a cold front move quickly through the forecast area early Friday with high temperatures a good 30 degrees cooler than on Thursday. Temperatures will quickly rebound mostly into the 70s on Saturday as zonal aloft induces a lee surface trough and a quick return to south to southwest winds across the forecast area.
Buckling of the upper flow over the CONUS late weekend into early work week with a trough being carved out over the intermountain West just downstream from a ridge over the eastern Pacific will allow cold air to spill southward into the forecast area during the Sunday with strong cold advection Sunday night. Models are struggling today with the handling of the main piece of short wave energy that will carve out this longer wave trough with both closing off into a low but with the GFS much more progressive than the ECMWF. As a result potential exits for a range of possibilities from a brief window of post-frontal precipitation as the low moves across the region with a quick transition from rain to snow to a longer window of precipitation (Sunday night into Tuesday night) as a slow-moving closed low over the desert southwest then opens up and ejects to the north of the region with the potential for more rain and freezing rain and less snow. Very few model or ensemble solutions are showing anything more than light precipitation amounts at this time. Given this range of solutions confidence is high in cold temperatures Sunday night through Tuesday night but low relative to precipitation chances, and more importantly, precipitation type. Have inserted more freezing rain into the forecast, but generally in tandem with a snow and/or rain mention, mostly as a result of the uncertainties at this time.
FIRE WEATHER. Thursday the combination of ERCs in the 50th to 74th percentile, above normal temperatures, and 20 ft winds southwest at around 10-15 mph will create elevated fire weather conditions across the NM/TX state line and the southwestern Texas Panhandle. Conditions will remain below Red Flag warning criteria, but a Rangeland Fire Danger statement may be needed as conditions materialize.
LUB WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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 numerous 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.
