Marine Weather and Tides
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 Elko NV 204 PM PDT Fri Aug 7 2020
SYNOPSIS. A shortwave trough will trigger a few thunderstorms through early this evening across Elko County. Otherwise, things will be relatively quiet for the next few days. The next low pressure system may bring thunderstorms back to northern Nevada next week.
SHORT TERM. Tonight through Sunday evening. This should be the last thunderstorm day/evening before a short break. Cumulus build-ups were first visible near the Ruby Mountains around 1830z and the most cloud to cloud flashes are currently over the East Humboldt Range. Models are in very good agreement for the short term period. Although a dry pattern is on the horizon, it will be just a short interlude before the next system moves north of the state.
This evening. Thunderstorms are continuing to develop over Elko County, with the focus a little further south today than on Thursday. Prime interest for thunderstorm activity is expected to be over the East Humboldt Range and Wells, running along the Interstate 80 corridor to the Pequops this afternoon and/or early evening. The latest model run has moistened the column, offering upwards of 0.8 inches of precipitable water east of U.S. 93 and all along the I-80 corridor to Wendover. The H7 flow convergence is strongest from the East Humboldt Range northward up U.S. 93. CAPE values on the 12z model run have increased, maxing out at over 400 J/kg, not to far off from yesterday. However with the short wave exiting, storms should shut down early and may not even go into the evening hours.
Tonight through Sunday. A dry pattern will make a return for a few days. The synoptic trough will lift north, leaving behind a benign flow. Daytime temperatures will actually increase by a few degrees while in the drier pattern increased nighttime radiation may lead to a few degrees cooler overnight. High temperatures will be in the 90s. Low temperatures will range from the mid 40s to the mid 50s.
LONG TERM. Sunday night through next Friday.
Monday should start off fairly quiet and carry forward the trend started through the weekend as high pressure continues to dominate the region. Some afternoon dry thunder is still possible in the afternoon but should remain mostly over the far eastern parts of Elko and White Pine counties.
By Tuesday, an upper wave passing through the Pacific Northwest will shoot energy into the long wave trough pattern and deepen the upper trough extending across northern CA. The resulting broadening of the upper trough and shift in the pattern will increase a more southerly upper flow over NV. The ensuing increase in mid-level moisture and instability over the region should increase the risk for isolated afternoon thunderstorms Tuesday and Wednesday. Ensemble guidance does show a shot of mid-level moisture across northern NV Tuesday and Wednesday, but uncertainty remains as to the extent of the developing convection over the region. But it still appears that Tuesday and Wednesday should be the most active days next week.
By Thursday, the upper flow will become more southwesterly and bring drier more stable conditions over the CWA which will continue into Friday. Afternoon highs are expected hover at or above normal in the upper 80s to low 90s through the region with overnight lows in the 50s to low 60s.
AVIATION. VFR conditions will continue for the TAF sites through 18Z Saturday. Marginal mid-level moisture and weak instability will continue to support development of some isolated thunderstorms later this afternoon into the evening. Most activity will stay within the vicinity the Ruby Mountains-East Humboldt Range then east and northeast over the remainder of Elko County to the Idaho/Utah borders. Virga is still possible west in and around KWMC and KBAM while dispersed smoke from regional wildfires continues to bring hazy conditions over much of the region. But these conditions are not expected to reduce VIS/CIG at any of the TAF sites.
FIRE WEATHER. A low pressure area moving well north of Nevada has lifted rapidly north into Canada. Instability will still be possible across Elko County through early evening. Saturday and Sunday are looking more stable however another system will move well north of the state early next week in a fashion very similar to the current one. Another round of isolated thunderstorms will be possible across mainly northern Nevada.
LKN WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
