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 Reno NV 313 AM PDT Thu Jul 16 2020
Typical summer temperatures and afternoon breezes will persist over northeast California, the Sierra, and western Nevada into next week. A few afternoon and evening thunderstorms over eastern California and western Nevada today will persist into early next week, mainly confined to areas south of Highway 50.
Rather typical mid-summer weather will continue through Saturday (and beyond) with warmth/heat and daily zephyr breezes along with a few thunderstorms, mainly south of Highway 50 in far western NV and eastern CA. Temperatures each day are expected to top out 4-7 degrees above average; not near records but given that averages are near their yearly peaks, still very warm to hot. As far as overnight, lows remain cool for Sierra valleys and the colder lower valleys with 40s and 50s; however, more urbanized areas in western and west-central NV look to remain in the 60s for less overnight relief from the daily heat for those without air conditioning.
As far as the nature of thunderstorms, they look fairly typical overall; however, light steering motion brings a bit higher threat for heavy rainfall, especially if storms persist for more than 30 minutes or get locked on terrain. This could be an issue if a thunderstorm gets stuck over a burn area or in barren steep terrain. Note that their is always a low chance for a storm to get enhanced by outflow interactions (unpredictable) and get a bit "beefier" with outflow winds over 50 mph, frequent lightning, and brief very heavy rain. -Snyder
LONG TERM. Sunday through next week .
Pattern remains about the same into next week with the Four Corners High and weak low pressure off the California Coast. Temperatures will remain a bit above average through the period but nothing record breaking is expected. This will mean mid/upper 90s for the lower valleys and 80s in the Sierra valleys.
Hot temperatures and instability will keep slight chances for afternoon/evening thunderstorms mainly over the Eastern Sierra south of Highway 50, including Mono, Alpine, Mineral, Southern Lyon, and Douglas counties. -Hoon
Storms will be more widespread today, but the most favored area will continue to be along and east of the crest of Mono and Alpine counties moving slowly to the northeast into Southern Lyon/Mineral counties.
Chances for thunderstorms today at area terminals: KMMH/TVL = 25-30% KCXP/KMEV/TRK= 20% KRNO= 15%
Expect to see impacts including heavy rain, small hail, gusty erratic winds up to 50 mph, turbulence, and reduced visibility if any storms move directly over area terminals. -Hoon
. Isolated to Scattered Thunderstorms Today .
We have cancelled the Fire Weather Watches for the Northern Sierra Front, Lake Tahoe Basin, and the northeast California zones. A few isolated storms may be possible for today in these areas, but latest guidance continues to look less impressive for thunderstorm development for areas north of Highway 50 . not enough to justify an upgrade to Red Flag Warnings.
However, Red Flag Warnings remain in effect for today for the Southern Mono and the Southern Sierra Front zones. Those areas still stand to see the best threat of thunderstorms the next two days, with today still looking like a better day. Storms will be on the wetter side due to very slow storm motions. However, cores will be small so several strikes outside the cores seem likely, particularly Thursday. With dry low levels, any storm will be capable of producing outflow winds to 50 mph.
Friday may see another decent day for storms in the eastern Sierra, but some models are also showing more capping with northern areas remaining dry. At least a few storms are possible through the weekend for the eastern Sierra. The flow does become more southerly early next week with a possible influx of moisture. This would be another period to watch for thunderstorms and dry lightning as storm motions will be appreciable. -X/Hoon
REV Watches/Warnings/Advisories. NV . Red Flag Warning from 2 PM this afternoon to 9 PM PDT this evening NVZ421.
CA . Red Flag Warning from 2 PM this afternoon to 9 PM PDT this evening CAZ274.

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.
