Marine Weather and Tides
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

834 pm est Sat feb 24 2018
Our weather will remain wet, through most of Sunday, as a
frontal system slowly approaches. Once the front moves off the
east coast, drier weather will return, for the early part of
the coming week. Temperatures will stay mild.
Near term until 6 am Sunday morning
830 pm update...
steadier rain has tapered off and shifted to the east this
evening... Leaving mainly NE pa with patchy very light rain or
drizzle. No major changes made to the forecast, with the bulk of
the heavier rain still expected overnight tonight and Sunday
morning... And a small area of light freezing rain possible in
northern oneida county... Still under a winter weather advisory.
May see some very light freezing rain sleet in the higher
elevations of the catskills, but still not significant and not
confident enough for a headline. Increased S SE winds Sunday
across the finger lakes where sustained winds around 20 to 30
mph and gusts 30 to 40 mph are possible.
3 pm update... An area of steady light rain continues to move
across nepa and sullivan county, ny late this afternoon,
associated with a short-wave feature tracking across southern
ontario as of this writing, as well as a stalled frontal
boundary down over the mid-atlantic states. This rain should
temporarily diminish this evening, as the above mentioned short-wave
moves off to our northeast. In the meantime, much of cny will
stay rain-free, under mainly cloudy skies.
Later tonight (mostly after midnight), the next piece of short-
wave energy will track from the southern plains into the ohio
valley, and a trailing occluded front at the surface will also
push eastward towards the western portions of ny and pa. These
features, coupled with improving upper jet support and deeper
moisture, will cause steady rain to quickly come back in and
overspread all of cny and nepa.
For the most part, surface temperatures should stay above the
freezing mark. However, over parts of northern oneida, it still
appears that readings could drop into the 30-32 degree range,
with at least a brief period of freezing rain. Thus, our winter
weather advisory will remain in tact for this area.
Short term 6 am Sunday morning through Sunday night
310 pm update... Steady rain Sunday morning, perhaps briefly
heavy in spots, should come to an end from west to east during
the midday and early afternoon hours, as the above mentioned
occluded front sweeps through cny and nepa.
If anything, models have come down a bit in their rainfall
forecasts for this period, perhaps owing to the very progressive
nature of the system overall. In general, we're expecting
0.5-0.75" for most areas, within roughly a 6-12 hour period,
with perhaps a bit more in the traditional upslope areas of the
southern tug hill and pocono plateau regions within a strong
s-se flow regime, and possibly a bit less for parts of the
finger lakes region and the wyoming lackawanna valleys of nepa,
where localized downsloping shadowing effects could come into
play. Although such rainfall will cause rises in our
tributaries and main stem rivers, our present thinking is that
it will be insufficient to generate significant flooding issues.
It is still possible that a few of our main stem river points
could edge into minor flood stage later Sunday into Monday (only
typical lowland flooding would result in this instance) for a
brief time, but that appears to be the worst we can expect at
this point. We'll continue to monitor for any changes.
We should dry out quickly by later in the day Sunday and Sunday
night, as high pressure builds in at the surface, and the upper
level pattern flattens out for a time.|
Long term Monday through Saturday
345 pm update...
quiet weather conditions are expected early this week with high
pressure building slowly across the northeast. The air mass will be
rather dry... So cloud cover should be minimal... Which will lead to
afternoon temperatures into the upper 40s and lower 50s... And
overnight lows in the upper 20s and lower 30s.
As the surface high off the mid-atlantic coast shifts further to the
east Wednesday and an area of low pressure develops in the srn
plains a strong sly flow will ensue. The sfc low will quickly lift
to the northeast around ia il mo Wed night thur morning... And
as a pre-frontal trough lifts into the area along with an
initial band of rain on Thursday the system deepens and becomes
stacked over the SRN great lakes ohio valley region. Thermal
profiles among the various models are not in very good
agreement with the GFS being a bit warmer through the day
Thursday and into thur night... The ECMWF and cmc drawing down
the colder air quickly later in the day thur, changing the rain
to snow sooner. So, for the forecast, have added more mention of
snow at this point, but will need to keep an eye on the model
trends with this seemingly potent winter storm expected to
impact a good portion of the northeast later this week.
Aviation 02z Sunday through Thursday
00z update... First batch of rain is now moving out of the area.
Therefore, we should see a break in the weather for the next 4-6
hours, with generallyVFR to occasional MVFR CIGS around.
Between about 25 06-09z a steadier rain overspreads all of cny
and nepa, conditions should lower area-wide, with below
alternate- ifr restrictions expected much of the time.
Conditions may be slightly higher at kavp and ksyr, with
downsloping winds at play for both sites.
There is a chance of -fzra and or ice pellets at krme at the
onset of precipitation, therefore added in a tempo group for
this potential in krme's TAF between about 25 08-12z.
A strong low-level jet develops between about 25 07-10z... Peaking
in magnitude between 25 11-15z. Initially the direction of the
low level jet at 2k ft agl is between 140-160 degs, but it then
shifts to 190-210 degs after about 25 16z. The llws and jet
diminish Sunday afternoon. We've inserted llws for all terminal
sites to cover this.
As for the surface winds, 10 kt or less can be expected into
this evening. Later tonight and Sunday, winds will increase
significantly from the se, with gusts as high as 20-30 kt
likely, particularly at ksyr, kith, and kbgm. Occasional gust to
35 kts cannot be ruled out at these 3 sites mainly between
25 12-16z. Winds shift out of the wsw Sunday afternoon and
decrease quickly... Becoming less than 12 kts.
Thursday... Restrictions may develop in snow, or mixed

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.
