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.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 506 AM CST Wed Nov 25 2020
Discussion. Issued at 259 AM CST WED NOV 25 2020
Key Messages: -Drizzle and spotty rain to continue through the morning, drying up by the afternoon. -Dry weather expected for Thanksgiving Day!
. Short Term . (09Z Today through Wednesday)
Morning lows are expected to remain above freezing for the entire forecast area, though flurries to light snow mixed in with any passing light showers cannot be ruled out for our northern tier of counties this morning between 5AM-7AM. While temps are not forecast to hit below freezing, evaporative cooling cannot be ruled out to cool temps enough for frozen precip to develop. No accumulation is expected with any snow that may develop.
A surface low will track through central MO early this morning, moving northeast and out of MO by this afternoon, pushing with it the rain showers that have been impacting us since late Monday. Wrap- around moisture from this surface low will give our forecast area the chance to see some spotty drizzle towards the later half of the morning and into the early afternoon. Conditions will slowly dry up by the evening hours, with the stubborn deck of clouds gradually eroding from the west to east by this evening, as well. Due to the overcast skies today, temps will feel appropriate for late November, with highs in the upper 40s for our southern counties, ranging to the lower 40s for northern MO.
. Long Term . (Thursday through the weekend)
Conditions for the rest of the forecast period are going to remain dry as an upper level shortwave ridge influences our weather for the next few days. On Thanksgiving day, a weak cold front will traverse through the region. This dry frontal passage will only bring us some cloud coverage and cooler temps on Friday.
By the weekend, we can expect a brief warm-up in temps before another upper level trough develops a closed low and treks through the Southern Plains. The chance for precip at this time lies during the day Sunday, with a sparse amount of moisture available for this system to produce anything significant. If you are planning on traveling on Sunday, the good news is that this systems appear to stay south of the Missouri River, keeping any daytime precip as rain. One caveat to this scenario is if the precip chance moves closer to the morning hours or farther north, mixed precip and potentially snow could develop. One aspect I'd like to point our again is the sparse amount of moisture models are currently projecting as available for this possible event. Anything appreciable developing at this time is low, though it is noteworthy enough to make a brief mention. Several more waves are expected to move through the course of next week, keeping the chance for potentially impact weather on the table at this time.
Aviation. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday Morning) Issued at 506 AM CST WED NOV 25 2020
Conditions this morning will toggle between LIFR and IFR as visibilities and cloud ceilings sit under 4SM and 1000ft, respectively. Dry weather can be expected for the rest of the TAF period after this light rain clears out this morning after 16Z. Winds will also pick up this morning, gusting upwards of 20kts from the north, and will start to dip under 10kts after 18Z. Visibilities will gradually improve over the course of the day, lifting to MVFR around 21-22Z, and finally clearing out to IFR by tonight around 00Z- 03Z.

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.
