Change Location

To change the overall location for the page, click on "Change Location" on the top left of the page. If you want to change the location of the wind maps, you need to change the location of the overall page.


The color on the maps shows the wind strength along with the standard wind feathers. More tails on the feathers mean more wind and they are aligned so that the feather points to where the wind is coming from.

Map Times

The wind maps show the forecast for three different times spaced at 3 hour increments. As the day moves on, different maps are selected and shows. For example, as I write this it is 3PM and the maps that are showing are 5PM, 8PM, and early the next morning. By the end of the day all the maps will show maps for the following day.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. 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.
