Periodic MVFR ifr CIGS and or vsbys will be possible with scattered
showers and thunderstorms moving across the region today. These are
currently across the east coast and parts of the interior, moving
toward the northwest. The best chance for these to affect the
coastal sites will be starting around 19-20z, possibly lingering
until 01-02z and will include a tempo group from 20-22z to account
for this possibility. Light southeast winds tonight will become more
south to southwest through tomorrow afternoon.

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.
