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 Hastings NE 524 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020
DISCUSSION. (Today through Friday) Issued at 227 AM CST Sat Nov 28 2020
The main forecast foci are the cold frontal passage late tonight and the midweek brief cool down.
A light but steady southwest wind has set up across the forecast area early today as weak surface high pressure settles near Wichita under clear skies. Look for a nice day today as temperatures warm to about 60 degrees with plenty of sunshine a favorable breeze.
Changes occur tonight, between midnight and sunrise Sunday, during which time a strong cold front will plow across the area. The main impacts of the front will be strong winds, gusting to 40 mph Sunday morning and early afternoon, and much cooler temperatures. Some passing mid/high clouds will likely accompany the otherwise dry frontal passage. Though peak winds should tail off in the afternoon, the very dry post frontal air will push the southwest forecast area to near critical fire weather conditions for a time Sunday afternoon.
Shortwave ridging will develop Monday and Tuesday, allowing for temperatures to rise again above normal for most areas and couple more pretty nice days to start the week.
The mid week forecast remains somewhat uncertain other than it will be colder again Wednesday and Thursday. The pocket of colder air will come with an upper low spinning off from the main upper flow and seemingly likely to dive down toward the southern Plains. Fine forecast details are still sketchy, but with the low potentially moving right over the area, some light/trace like precipitation may still enter the forecast with time. Though too early to tell, we will have watch just where the upper low finally starts to spin up as Kansas (in general) could see more of an impact. Though colder, it still won't be too bad, with highs only slightly below season normals.
Pending the outcome of the meandering upper low, temperatures should start to rebound next Friday and continue the trend into the next week. The 8-13 day period still looks mostly dry and likely warmer than normal. Anomalously warm temperatures will persist across most of Canada as upper high pressure ridges up into the prairie provinces. That essentially keeps any prolonged cold air out of area until possibly mid December. On top of that, if the midweek low pressure doesn't bring precipitation to speak of, most of the region will likely be dry until mid December too.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerous of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
