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.

Tonight-Saturday... Eastern CONUS surface high will slide eastward
into the western atlantic as a trailing ridge axis settles southward
across central florida. Prevailing NE flow will slacken overnight,
with potential for some patchy late night fog N W of i-4. Winds
become light SE to s-sw by Saturday afternoon.Some cirrus may start
to stream overhead late in the day, however overall conditions look
mainly sunny and warmer, with MAX temps reaching the l80s. Overnight
mins mainly in the m-u50s, with some l50s over the far north, and
near 60f in the orl metro and along the immediate coast.
Sunday-Monday... Low-level high pressure well east of the carolinas
will continue to move out to sea ahead of a cold front approaching
the east coast and northern florida early Sunday morning.
Moisture associated with this frontal boundary will not be overly
impressive and pretty shallow in nature resulting in only 20-30%
precip chances areawide. As far as timing is concerned... Clouds and
rain chances will increase from north to south as the day progresses
beginning after sunrise Sunday morning along and north of the i-4
corridor. Areas farther south will see the best rain chances in the
late morning through late afternoon with the treasure coast back
through okeechobee county remaining dry through late afternoon. Some
showers could stick around for the treasure coast through early
overnight Sunday before coming to an end.
Behind the front, winds will turn northwesterly and then northerly
as high pressure builds in over the gulf coast states. This will
usher much drier air into the area beginning late Sunday afternoon
for northern areas into overnight Sunday for the far southern areas
with skies quickly clearing out as the drier airmass overtakes east
central florida. Low temperatures on Monday morning will be pretty
chilly with mid to upper 40s possible north of i-4. Lows will
generally be low to mid 50s all other areas with upper 50s to low
60s for the treasure coast.
The area of high pressure will continue to slide eastward on Monday
with winds becoming northeasterly to easterly with breezy conditions
along the coast. Skies will be mostly sunny to partly cloudy with
no rain in the forecast and highs in the low to mid 70s.
Tuesday... High pressure pushes off the mid atlantic coast with
return flow developing as the front over south florida lifts back to
the north. Models offer differing solutions on the development of an
inverted trough or weak low along the boundary as shortwave energy
passes overhead Tuesday afternoon. Regardless, given the increase in
moisture and low level convergence near the boundary, expect an
uptick in precipitation chances areawide along with a low chance for
thunder that will remain confined to the coastal waters (for now).
Capped pops at 50% given the uncertainty in the amount of surface
development, but would not be surprised if further increases become
necessary in future updates. Noticeable climb in dewpoints (mid 60s)
and temps (upper 70s) expected in the increasingly moist southeast
Wednesday-Friday... Unsettled pattern continues into the extended as
a second, stronger trough digs into the gulf of mexico and develops
into a closed (or nearly closed) low. Models continue to offer
differing solutions of synoptic features during this time frame, but
in general agree that the mid upper level feature will induce
surface cyclogenesis over the central and eastern gulf. Latest 12z
gfs (and to a lesser extent the 12z ecmwf) indicates a slightly more
progressive trough compared to their earlier run with low pressure
making its closest approach between late Thursday (gfs) and late
Friday (ecmwf). Given the uncertainties in the forecast, have opted
to cap pops at 50% late in the period as we await future guidance.
Warmer temps (mid upper 70s) expected in south southeast flow out
ahead of the low pressure, though remaining tempered given the ample
cloud cover expected.

Marine Tonight-Saturday... Surface ridge axis settles south over
the local atlantic through Saturday afternoon. This will result in
ne winds of winds veering to east at 10-13kt this evening, veering
to SE and then south at around 10kt on Saturday. Seas will be slow
to subside, remaining in the 3-4ft range along the immediate coast,
and 4-5ft farther offshore.
Sunday-Monday... Gradually deteriorating boating conditions from
north to south through the day Sunday as a cold front moves through
the area. Southwest to westerly winds will turn northwesterly and
northerly 15-20 knots nearshore and around 20 knots offshore as the
front passes. Seas build to 4-6 feet Sunday night into Monday
morning with 6-7 feet near the gulf stream. Conditions should
improve somewhat through the day on Monday as winds are forecast to
decrease slightly with seas gradually subsiding.
Tuesday-Wednesday... Winds veer to the southeast on Tuesday as the
old front over south florida returns north as a warm front. Models
indicate a weak inverted trough developing along the boundary which
will weaken winds from 15-20 knots early Tuesday to around 10 knots
Wednesday. Seas slowly improve from 5-7 feet early Tuesday to 3-5
feet by Wednesday.

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.
