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. (Today through Monday night) Issued at 221 AM CDT Sat Sep 19 2020
The smoky haze from the western CONUS wildfires will continue to affect the area today. Otherwise, cirrus will move into the ridge aloft as it translates over the Plains ahead of the upper low/trof moving from the Pacific Northwest into the northern Rockies. Southerly low level and surface flow will increase across central Kansas in response to the deepening lee side trof over the high Plains. The upper low/trof will continue to advance eastward across the northern Plains into south central Canada during Sunday with seasonably warm and breezy southerly flow continuing across much of the area. The southerly low level flow may tap a bit more moisture on Monday though little change to the seasonable warmth.
LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Friday) Issued at 221 AM CDT Sat Sep 19 2020
The southerly low level flow will continue to keep the area seasonably warm through mid-week. An upper trof moving across the northern Plains/Upper Midwest on Wednesday may support the passage of a surface trof/weak cold front across Kansas. Even so, moisture and forcing will be marginal to support organized precipitation. The operational GFS and ECMWF diverge significantly late in the week and become out of phase with respect to trof and ridge positions across the CONUS by Friday for lower confidence on the outer periods of the forecast.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon) Issued at 1232 PM CDT Sat Sep 19 2020
A haze remains in the sky due to smoke from the fires out west. Observations indicate a greater concentration in western Kansas with visibility reductions down to 5-7 miles. This trend should continue with more of an impact to the west, the haze/smoke layer is elevated across central Kansas and points east. There are some high clouds scattered around, but it is primarily clear skies beyond the haze as mentioned. KGBD and KRSL are starting to show an increase in the wind speeds with the deepening trough along the Front Range; speeds above 15kts will persist during the forecast with this system to the west. Low level wind shear is possible at KRSL with a slight directional and speed increase around 7Z, but this should diminish in the morning as the system moves northeast. Southerly winds are anticipated throughout.

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.
