discussion...

cold front is progressing through the forecast area this afternoon
with a broken line of showers and thunderstorms along the front.

Some of these have been strong to severe this afternoon with the
main concern being hail and perhaps gusty winds.

The activity should be weakening and along the coast around the
start of the tonight forecast period, however followed the latest
guidance gradually pushing good chance to likely pops through the
remainder of the area from where current radar indicates. In the
wake of the frontal passage, briefly cooler temperatures can be
expected for the next few days before a warming trend begins mid
to late work week as surface high pushes off to the east.

The next cold front works in this weekend with good chances for
showers and some thunderstorms through early next week. The front
is forecast to stall in the vicinity keeping rain chances
elevated. Temperatures will also be on the cool side as well.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
