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 Salt Lake City UT 402 PM MDT Fri Aug 7 2020
SYNOPSIS. Persistent high pressure will keep a typical warm but dry summer pattern across the region through early next week.
SHORT TERM (Through 12Z Monday). It feels like a broken record, but sunny skies with near to somewhat above normal temperatures continue across the region this across. A weak, shallow cold front is currently crossing northern and central Utah and has helped northern Utah remain well below 100F.
Outside of a few isolated showers/thunderstorms across the Rafts today, dry conditions are expected. South of the front across portions of central and southern Utah, winds have been sufficiently gusty to reach red flag criteria. A red flag warning remains in effect for these locations.
Expect near normal temperatures and dry conditions through the remainder of the short term forecast as broad ridging remains in place across the southern Plains and Desert Southwest.
LONG TERM (After 12Z Monday). The extended forecast looks to remain dry with slight chances of later day showers/storms in the northern Utah mountains. Near seasonal temperatures will turn cooler by the end of next week as a trough moves into the western US.
A ridge will be centered over southern New Mexico at the start of the period, slowly retrograding into southern Arizona by Wednesday. This will result in a zonal flow across Utah and southwest Wyoming with persisting dry conditions, aside from slight afternoon/evening PoPs in and near the Raft River and Uinta ranges. Models are in good agreement through Wednesday.
A trough will be located across British Columbia on Wednesday as models begin to diverge on the eastward progression and amplitude, although models are beginning to show better agreement. The GFS ensemble has been consistently showing a deeper digging and slower eastward progression of this trough in recent runs, although the 12Z GEFS suite is more aligned with the ECMWF ensemble which is less amplified with the trough. Either solution brings falling 500 mb heights into the area Thursday and Friday, which will allow for cooler temps, especially for northern Utah. Rain chances look minimal as southwest flow will keep dry air in place. The bigger impact appears to be increased fire weather concerns as mid-level flow increases out of the southwest bringing elevated winds Wednesday and Thursday, possibly lingering into Friday.
AVIATION. The SLC terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the TAF period. Northerly winds are expected to linger through about 05- 06Z before shifting to the southeast.
FIRE WEATHER. A weak cold front will gradually weaken across central Utah into this evening. Gusty winds to the south of this front will bring critical fire weather conditions to portions of southern and eastern Utah through this evening.
After this evening, a dry pattern will continue with near normal temperatures into early next week. The next significant threat of widespread critical fire weather conditions looks to be late in the week next week.
SLC WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. UT . Red Flag Warning until 9 PM MDT this evening for UTZ484-489-493- 494-496.
WY . None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
