Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

819 pm edt Sun jun 17 2018
A complex amplified upper pattern continues over the conus. Deep
troughing extends south from the northwest u.S. Through the baja
peninsula. Over the eastern u.S., upper ridging is the predominant
feature extending northward through the ohio river valley north of
the great lakes. An upper low sits south of this ridge over
tennessee and another over the western gulf of mexico. The ridge
will hold steady through Monday as the second upper low moves toward
the texas mexico border. On the surface, broad high pressure
centered southeast of new england ridges southwest. Very little
change is expected in this pattern over the next 24-36 hours and
will dictate the weather over florida through the period.
As for the rest of the evening, some stray showers and storms will
continue to fire off for the next couple of hours and then quiet
conditions are expected overnight. Winds will be light overnight
becoming predominately east-northeast on Monday resulting in showers
later in the day moving from east to west, but still with a 40-60
percent pop late in the afternoon. Temperatures and humidities will
remain on the high side, very typical of june. No other changes
needed at this time.
Conditions have been mostly quiet at all the terminals and overall
vfr conditions are expected through the period. Some brief MVFR cigs|
and vsby in scattered showers storms will be possible after 18-21z
on Monday so will hold vcts at all terminals to cover this. Winds
will be light and variable overnight, becoming easterly less than
10 knots by late morning. No other aviation impacts expected.
Pleasant boating conditions will continue through the period as high
pressure continues to ridge over the gulf coast waters. Winds will
remain light at less than 10 knots with seas less than 2 feet
through the week. A stray shower or storm will be possible, but
overall great weather across the marine zones.

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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 L-36.com. 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 L-36.com 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.
