Vfr conditions will persist through today. Winds are expected to
increase through the afternoon and shift from southerly to more
southeasterly as the sea breeze moves inland. Winds will
gradually weaken and shift back to the south late this evening and
overnight. With drier air aloft moving into the region, cloud
cover will be minimal out west in lrd, but with onshore flow
providing low level moisture, scattered low clouds will be
possible for the eastern terminals.

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.
