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.

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Friday) Issued at 333 PM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020
Scattered cumulus remains over portions of central and eastern Nebraska, largely a result of the residual moisture from this morning's stratus. This should continue to diminish as we head into the late afternoon and evening.
At the same time, visible satellite and radar show additional convection developing along and west of a line from Goodland to Thedford. CAMs continue to support strong to severe storms in this vicinity, but they have also been very consistent in weakening and dissipating storms as they approach the local area. We have maintained some slight PoPs as far east as Buffalo, Kearney, and Franklin counties, but this may end up being too generous.
For Friday, the advancing upper trough will push a cold front into the region. The 18Z HRRR shows this front sliding into central Nebraska in the early afternoon, therefore we should still see a good warmup to around 90 degrees ahead of it.
Scattered thunderstorms are anticipated to develop along the front by mid afternoon. Models disagree slightly on timing and location, but the overall consensus is that the better chances will be roughly southeast of a line from Phillipsburg to Hastings to Columbus. MUCAPEs over 4000J/kg and 0-6 shear around 35kts are supportive of some severe updrafts and perhaps a few isolated supercellular structures. The main threats will be large hail and damaging wind. Given poor low-level shear, the tornado threat remains pretty low.
With the progressive nature of the front, I do not expect a significant risk for flooding, and dry conditions will prevail across most of the area by around midnight Friday night. Models have also trended cooler for Friday night, with lows now expected to be in the 50s for most of central Nebraska.
LONG TERM. (Friday night through Thursday) Issued at 333 PM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020
As the post-frontal high pressure slides to the east on Saturday and we see more easterly, upslope flow, southwestern portions of the area could see an isolated storm or two. That said, most of the area will likely stay dry.
Beyond that, chances for rain and thunderstorms remain rather low. Periodic perturbations moving through the northwesterly flow will keep at least a few small PoPs in the forecast, but overall the pattern appears rather dry.
Seasonable temperatures will also continue through the weekend and into next week due to continued northwesterly flow aloft. High temperatures will generally be in the low to mid 80s each day, only possibly reaching back into the upper 80s late next week.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Saturday) Issued at 636 PM CDT Thu Aug 13 2020
Thunderstorms should remain to the west of the terminals tonight. There will be some MVFR ceilings in the morning for a few hours. A cold front will move into the area toward the end of the TAF 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.
