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.
6/2/2019. Many thanks to a user for reporting an error on one of the Edit pages. The switch to PHP 7.2 caused many pages that previously worked to quit working. I fixed many but I still depend on users to report ones I missed. Please report errors HERE or send an email to me at L-36.com. Allen

Area Forecast Discussion . UPDATED National Weather Service Norman OK 1048 PM CST Sat Dec 7 2019
AVIATION. 08/06Z TAFs. Primarily VFR forecast, with a chance for MVFR visibility across central-northern Oklahoma 12Z-18Z. Veered lower level flow will hamper any fog development, but after sunrise near surface trough across northern Oklahoma, best chances for fog/stratus development mainly east of KOKC up toward KPNC. Also, will include mention of LLWS first part of forecast given intensifying low level jet.
PREV DISCUSSION. /issued 532 PM CST Sat Dec 7 2019/
AVIATION . 08/00Z TAFs. VFR conditions expected to prevail at most sites through the forecast period. Area of fog/stratus will be possible late tonight and tomorrow morning near and east of Interstate-35 as low level moisture increases sufficiently. Little in the way of model consensus for anything significant and will keep previous forecast trend of potential of MVFR for a few hours after sunrise from KOKC/KOUN up to KPNC. KPNC will have the higher likelihood for fog/stratus development.
PREV DISCUSSION . /issued 348 PM CST Sat Dec 7 2019/
DISCUSSION . High pressure draped across the southern plains and eastern CONUS is generating southerly winds and moisture advection over our area. Latest mesonet data shows a plume of moisture (as indicated by 40-45F dewpoint temperatures) being advected across southeastern Oklahoma. This moisture will continue along its trajectory tonight bringing a chance for patchy fog during the early to mid morning hours tomorrow. Winds will be rather strong for radiation fog. However, fog that develops will likely be due to moisture advection. Have increased the areal coverage for patchy fog to include central and east-central OK in the grids. There is some uncertainty as to the duration and coverage, if any fog develops at all.
The upper level ridge will push eastward ahead of a longwave trough that is currently located off the west coast. Subsequently, NW-ly flow aloft will back WSW-ly tomorrow as the trough axis reaches the western Rockies. Meanwhile, a 500mb jet max develops over AZ/NM and a surface low develops over SE Colorado and TX/OK panhandles. Low level SW-ly flow coupled with moderately packed isotherms signals WAA, and coupled with the resulting downslope flow, will warm temperatures nicely on Sunday - especially across SW OK and western north TX - where max temps will reach the mid 70s.
A cold front will bring cooler temperatures on Monday. The next chance for rain will be Monday evening into Tuesday morning across the southern two tiers.

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.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.
The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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.
