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.

SYNOPSIS. High pressure will gradually flatten through the early part of next week, maintaining a dry pattern with seasonal temperatures across the region.
SHORT TERM (THROUGH 12Z TUESDAY). Utah remains under a light southwest flow this morning, downstream of a weak, slightly positively-tilted trough extending across California and western Nevada. Meanwhile, a surface trough extends across northern Nevada into northwest Utah. The airmass remains quite dry, with PWATs generally under 0.3 inches except for a pocket of 0.5-0.6 inches across northwest Utah. Some clouds are noted within this pocket of moisture near the surface trough.
Expect generally quiet weather today given the dry airmass in place and the surface trough weakening through the day. A few weak ripples in the flow will continue to cross Utah, but should see little in the way of cloud cover outside of northern Utah. Temperatures should trend near to slightly above Climo. The upstream trough will gradually weaken through the early part of next week and the flow aloft will trend a bit more zonal. This pattern should maintain a dry airmass across the area with near-seasonal temperatures.
LONG TERM (After 12Z Tuesday). High pressure centered over the Desert Southwest will keep generally dry conditions over the forecast area with temperatures near seasonal normals. A trough making its way over the top of the ridge Tuesday into Wednesday may get close enough to produce a few high-based showers over northern Utah and southwest Wyoming, primarily over the higher terrain. The best threat of showers looks to be Wednesday afternoon into the early evening, but a bit more spread than usual exists in the global models in ensembles with regard to the timing of this feature, some confidence is relatively low in the details.
Ensemble spread continues to increase as next weekend approaches. Another Pacific Northwest trough is expected to make its way over the ridge late in the work week, and could get close enough to bring some cooler temperatures to northern portions of the forecast area by day seven as conditions remain relatively dry. However, confidence is quite low with regard to the strength of the system and the timing of its potential approach. Guidance overall seems to be favoring a weaker system that is unable to significantly weaken the ridge, keeping the vast majority of the cooler air well north of the area. Forecast has therefore been adjusted to indicate less in the way of cooling for next weekend.
AVIATION. The SLC terminal will see VFR conditions throughout the day with mostly clear skies. Southeast winds are expected to shift to the northwest between 19Z and 21Z.

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.
