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 Friday) Issued at 1230 PM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020
The high amplitude ridge continues to be over the western portion of the CONUS with northwest upper level flow over the region. Temperatures were slightly cooler today behind a cooler flow of easterly winds on the surface in the post-frontal airmass. Dry conditions will continue through Friday with a gradual increase in temperatures as 700 mb temps approach +8-9.5C but still hovering around seasonal normals. The bigger impacts will continue to be the smoke produced by the Cameron Peak and Mullen fires in Larimer county and just across the border in Wyoming. Current wind patterns and HRRR smoke models show another day of extensive smoke cover over the northern and central foothills as well as the lower elevations of I-76 and south. A mixture of near-surface and elevated smoke could hinder some increase in temperatures tomorrow afternoon as well as provide hazardous air quality conditions for sensitive groups.
LONG TERM. (Friday night through Thursday) Issued at 1230 PM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020
No significant changes to the long term. Main theme is continued dry conditions with above normal temperatures and persistent elevated fire danger. Areas of smoke will continue to be an issue at times in the mountains, foothills and adjacent plains. On the synoptic scale, a ridge of high pressure will remain over the west coast, with a northwesterly flow over CO. A short wave trough is expected to pass to drop into the Midwest Friday night into Saturday morning. There is the potential of an isolated shower over the far northeast plains Friday evening as a weak cold front pushes across the area, but that is basically it. Temperatures on Saturday will drop back into the mid/upper 60s. By Sunday however, temperatures will climb back into the 70s. The flow aloft will weaken on Sunday, as the flow aloft transitions to west/northwesterly component. On Monday, the wind will increase over the region and warms up as a weak lee trough over eastern CO generates an additional downslope component along the Front Range. A weak front then pushes across the region late Monday/Monday night but no real impact from this feature aside from a brief period of gusty winds. Tuesday through Thursday, the ridge will spread over the central Rockies. Temperatures will remain above normal with generally lighter winds under the ridge axis.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday afternoon) Issued at 1230 PM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020
Smoke from several wildfires will continue to move across the Denver area through Friday afternoon. Most of the smoke is expected to be elevated during the day, though slant visibility will be impacted. There will be areas of ILS/MVFR visibilities over the mountains northwest of Denver, and these lower visibilities will become more likely around Denver tonight. Some elevated smoke could cause a SCT to BKN deck over area terminals through the evening. Winds will remain light through the period with speeds generally staying under 10kt.
FIRE WEATHER. Issued at 1230 PM MDT Thu Oct 1 2020
There will be elevated fire danger through the middle of next week with continued dry and warm conditions. The biggest potential for red flag conditions will be Monday with stronger winds and very low humidities over mountains, mountain valleys and elevated terrain. Otherwise, the wind will be light which will help slightly offset the persistently dry conditions. Areas of smoke will continue to impact the mountains, foothills and adjacent plains as well.
