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.

A dry cold front will cross the area on Tuesday, followed by high
pressure that will persist over the region through the rest of the

very pleasant night over central nc as temperatures begin to sink
into the 60s in some northern locations at this time with low 70s
across the rest of the area. Some cloud cover across the central
portion of the area will keep temperatures from bottoming out for a
while but should still see some upper 50s in some locations across
the NW piedmont which has a better chance of seeing some clear skies
for a while. Conditions should remainVFR through the overnight
hours and winds are expected to be calm to light and variable.
Short term Tuesday and Tuesday night
As of 330 pm edt Monday...
the S W cross central nc late Tuesday early Tuesday evening. Lift
associated with the system, coupled with afternoon heating and
available moisture should spark the development of a few showers by
mid day across the piedmont. This convective threat will spread into
the sandhills and coastal plain where coverage may be enhanced due
to timing and slightly better low level moisture. Current cam
solutions are a little too robust considering current coverage
across the lower great lakes mid-ms valley. Capped pop at 30 percent
east of highway 1 Tuesday afternoon-Tuesday evening.
Variably cloudy skies and patchy showers will yield temperatures
several degrees below normal for late june. High temps Tuesday upper
70s NW to the low-mid 80s southeast.
The system will exit our eastern periphery early Tuesday evening
with rain chances decreasing shortly after sunset. Subsidence in the
wake of the system will lead to decreasing cloudiness with mostly
clear skies anticipated after midnight. Where showers do occur
Tuesday, residual moisture left in their wake under clearing skies|
may lead to the formation of patchy fog. Min temps generally 55-60.
Long term Wednesday through Sunday
As of 145 pm Monday...
a mid level trough will continue moving east on Wednesday with a
general west-to-east flow Thursday into early next week. At the
surface, high pressure will crest over the region Wednesday, then
settle offshore into early next week. Return flow around the high
will yield gradually increasing temperatures and humidity levels.
Scattered afternoon and evening convection will develop Saturday
through Monday as instability and low level moisture reach
Aviation 00z Tuesday through Saturday
As of 843 pm Monday...
the approach of a mid-upper level disturbance will result in patchy
mid-high level cloudiness through Tuesday. While moisture is scarce,
there is enough lift to support isolated to scattered showers,
primarily at eastern terminals(kfay and krwi) Tuesday afternoon. A
secondary reinforcing surface cold front will cross the area between
06 to 12z, with light sswly winds this evening becoming northerly.
High pressure will settle in behind the exiting disturbance Tuesday
night into Wednesday, then linger overhead through Thursday night.
As this high exits offshore Friday, the return sly flow will advect
a moist unstable air mass into our region, setting the stage for
scattered afternoon-evening convection, and early morning low clouds
and fog. Thus, the potential for periods of MVFR ifr parameters will
increase, beginning Friday morning and continuing into the weekend.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
