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. (This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 221 PM MST Fri Nov 27 2020
Split flow continues across the CONUS today with an upper trough over eastern Nebraska and an upper ridge over the Western CONUS. The southern split shows a closed low centered south of the Four Corners region this afternoon. High temperatures today will range from the upper 40s to mid-50s.
The upper ridge will shift to the east over the Tri-State weekend on Saturday. The closed low will also progress to the east through the day, remaining south of the area. Conditions are expected to remain dry as the low passes through. Temperatures will climb into the mid- 50s to low 60s in the afternoon. Lows will be primarily in the 20s.
A cold front will move in on Sunday with winds expected to pick up behind it. Sustained winds of 20 to 30 mph are expected to begin Sunday morning with gusts to 40 mph. Precipitation is not expected with the frontal passage. Cooler air will fill in behind the front with high temperatures in the 40s and lows falling into the teens.
LONG TERM. (Monday through Thursday) Issued at 211 PM MST Fri Nov 27 2020
At the beginning of the long term period, model guidance shows the CWA under the front part of an upper air ridge which gives a generally northerly flow aloft on Monday. Long term model solutions begin to diverge going into Monday evening. The ECMWF shows a low developing near WA/OR that makes its way down to the Four Corners area by Tuesday evening and pushes the ridge eastward. On Wednesday, the ECMWF shows a stronger Canadian low moving south into the U.S. by MN which brings a trough down over the CWA by the early Thursday. The base of this positively tilted trough extends way down south by the TX/Mexico border on Thursday causing the flow over the CWA to be northeasterly being underneath the trough's backside. During the same time, the GFS shows a Pacific Northwest upper air trough moving along the U.S/Canada border on Monday evening into Tuesday. This trough moves SE across MT into eastern WY where an upper level low forms on Tuesday afternoon while pushing the ridge eastward. The GFS then shows this low making its way over the CWA by Wednesday and progresses eastward going into Thursday. The flow over CWA becomes northeasterly during Thursday according to the GFS due to this low to the east of the CWA. While the end result of the flow over the CWA from both models is in almost the same direction on Thursday, there is a great amount of disagreement with the long term models on how and why the upper air pattern reaches this point. Due to this uncertainty, this situation will be monitored to see if future runs come into better agreement regarding the synoptic pattern aloft during the long term.
At the surface, the Tri-State area continues to see dry conditions during the long term period. Models show a surface high to the south of the CWA on Monday which may briefly usher in warmer temps than those from Sunday, but not by much. However, a cold air mass returns to the CWA behind a cold front moving through the area around the early afternoon hours of Tuesday. Models do not show much moisture in the area during this time, so precipitation is not currently expected with this frontal passage. These dry conditions continue for the remainder of the long term period.
Tri-State area expects to see highs staying in the lower 50s on Monday followed by highs in the middle to upper 40s on Tuesday. Tri- State area should see highs on Wednesday and Thursday drop to the middle 30s in the western areas to the lower 40s in the eastern areas. Lows overnight on Monday expect to be stay around the 20 degree mark. Tri-State overnight lows for remainder of the long term period expect to stay in the middle teens to lowers 20s with western portions of the Tri-State area seeing the cooler side of the temperatures.

VFR conditions at KGLD and KMCK through the period. KGLD will see a southwest wind around 10kts at taf issuance veer to the west at similar speeds around 15z with a brief period of sustained speeds around 12kts from 18z-20z. After 21z winds back to the southwest at speeds under 11kts. For KMCK a southwest wind under 10kts is expected through the period.

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.
