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.

SHORT TERM. Tonight through Sunday night. High pressure remains in place over East Idaho. Satellite imagery shows broad area of stratus over the Snake Plain and adjacent large valleys. There has quite a bit of erosion at the edges, possibly partially due to passage of weak upper feature and cirrus field crossing north to south. Stratus with patchy fog will remain a concern through most of the overnight periods. Moisture depth continues to thin with time through Saturday. Passage of dry upper trough still expected during the afternoon/evening Saturday, which may be enough to help mix out the boundary layer, at least briefly. Surface based inversions will be tough to completely break, and winds above the inversion layer are still expected to be more robust than in the valleys. However, soundings support a strengthening of the surface based moisture after passage of this feature. Thus Saturday night into Sunday morning may be more susceptible to fog formation behind the upper trough. Guidance continues to support much colder temperatures for Sunday morning with limited stratus/fog development. Blends appear to try to ride a middle ground between the two scenarios, and with not much confidence either way, stayed the course. DMH
LONG TERM. Mon through next Fri night. Guidance continues to building confidence in a trough moving through the upper level weak ridging on Mon night and Tue, with an otherwise dry and sunny extended period. Still expecting light snow, with the focus on the eastern highlands along the WY border and the central Idaho mountains, mainly west of a Hailey-Challis line. Also, some in the south central highlands, but fairly limited to mountains. Except for Mon with the approaching low warming up temperatures to above normal, expect near to below normal temperatures with mainly northwesterly air flow. Also, with the storm, expect some breezy to windy conditions as possible. The GFS has quite a strong wind aloft, but the ECMWF does not. This is likely due to uncertainty not in timing, but the actual track of this low, whether it comes in from the north or from the west, and how strong/deep this low is. So for now am letting the NBM average, making a breezy night for Mon night. Messick
AVIATION. High pressure will continue to reign, but much of the moisture dropped with the Wed storm has begun to mix out and the stratus and fog situation will continue to lessen its impact. Biggest threat tonight is KIDA and KDIJ. At this point, expecting marginal VFR for KIDA and IFR for KDIJ, borderline airport closure for KDIJ. Otherwise wind is light, CIG and VSBY are unlimited. Put in some "chicken" stratus for KPIH (morning_ and KSUN (afternoon) to reflect some weak potential. Messick
PIH WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
