940 am edt Thu jun 29 2017

Short term (today)
High pressure off the va nc coast ridges west and
southwest... With an embedded boundary through north
fl. The ridge results in a prevailing southeasterly low
level flow that shifts to westerly in the afternoon and
provides a focus for mid to late afternoon thunderstorms.

The 12z tbw sounding came in with a pwat of 1.70
inches... Just below the daily mean... And light southeasterly
low level winds. Current forecast look good with no updates
needed.

Aviation
29 12z-30 12z.

Light and variable winds become SE this morning then shift
to westerly in the afternoon at coastal terminals. Sct tsra
psbl vcnty starting 17-18z then taper off toward sunset.

Marine
A high pressure ridge axis north of the waters will provide
prevailing east and southeast winds although shifting to
onshore during an afternoon sea breeze. Main concern will
be isolated to scattered thudnerstorms with locally higher
winds and seas along with lightning.

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.
