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.

Updated aviation portion for 00Z TAF issuance
SHORT TERM. Tonight and Tuesday Issued at 250 PM CST Mon Jan 18 2021
Main forecast concerns remain on lake effect snow showers for far north-central WI, flurries elsewhere and weak clipper sliding by to our south and west on Tuesday.
The 19Z MSAS surface analysis showed a weak area of low pressure over south-central Lake Superior and a cold front that extended southwest from the low through central/southwest WI. Another weak low pressure was situated over north-central SD. Visible satellite imagery indicated plenty of low clouds over the region with a thinning of the clouds across northwest WI. Radar mosaic showed light lake effect snow showers/flurries over western Upper MI and north-central WI.
A broad mid-level shortwave trough will move over northern sections of Great Lakes region tonight. The combination of mid- level forcing and lake enhancement will keep a chance of snow showers/flurries across north-central WI through the night. Trajectories are not set-up the best, thus any snow accumulations would be minimal at best. The rest of the forecast area should remain dry, although a few flurries cannot be ruled out as weak individual shortwaves move through area within the northwest flow aloft. A cooler air mass to have settled over northeast WI behind the cold front. Look for min temperatures to range from 5 to 10 above zero central WI, middle to upper teens east-central WI.
The chance for lake effect snow showers will continue into Tuesday, but be in a diminishing mode as the shortwave trough exits the region. Otherwise, a pair of weak clipper systems are forecast to dive southeast from the northern Plains to the Midwest on Tuesday. The first clipper essentially dissipates over northern IL, while the second clipper to also be weakening as it reaches northeast IA by 00Z Wednesday. Modes do show measurable precipitation moving into the southern third of WI by the afternoon, however these systems appear to be just far enough to our southwest to bring snow into central or east-central WI. May add some flurries to these locations, but nothing more. Sky conditions to range from partly sunny to cloudy with max temperatures only in the middle teens north-central WI/parts of central WI, upper teens to lower 20s elsewhere.
LONG TERM. Tuesday Night Through Monday Issued at 250 PM CST Mon Jan 18 2021
Split flow pattern will continue through at least the end of the week, according to the latest medium range models. The northern stream will gradually sink to the south, which will bring colder air to Wisconsin by the end of the week. The colder air flowing over Lake Superior will produce lake effect snow showers in the snowbelt area. Amounts look to be small as wind directions are not very favorable and the air upstream is quite dry. Snow flurries are possible at times elsewhere.
A shortwave trough in the southern stream jet may bring us snow Saturday night and Sunday, but the resulting system looks less impressive than the last few days model runs with the lack of Gulf moisture and strong forcing. This is likely due to some of the jet energy remaining back in the southwest U.S. and a weaker shortwave lifting towards the northern Ohio Valley and Great Lakes. The models now have a stronger system Monday or Tuesday which stays mostly to our south.
AVIATION. for 00Z TAF Issuance Issued at 543 PM CST Mon Jan 18 2021
An upper level disturbance and associated cold front will shift east of the region this evening. Expect snow showers and flurries to diminish somewhat as this happens, with the eastern TAF sites improving from MVFR to VFR. Although brief improvement may also occur at the western TAF sites this evening, low clouds and MVFR ceilings will likely move back into the area later in the evening and persist into Tuesday morning. Another upper level disturbance will bring a chance of light snow showers or flurries during the mid to late afternoon on Tuesday.

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.
