10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.

245 am edt Tue mar 19 2019
Issued at 245 am edt Tue mar 19 2019
did a quick update mainly to adjust temperatures through dawn.
Some valleys in the east are around the mid 20s. Areas in the
higher terrain in the southeast, such as black mountain, have also
cooled a bit more than was originally forecast. Modified the
minimum temperatures accordingly.
Update issued at 1258 am edt Tue mar 19 2019
no major changes were needed for this update. Some higher clouds
continue to the north, but mostly clear skies will be the main
story for the overnight. Current temperatures are generally in the
low to mid 30s on ridges. However, some valleys, particularly in
the east, have already dropped to the upper 20s. A new zfp was not
needed. Updates have been sent to ndfd and to the web.
Update issued at 1056 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019
the forecast generally remains on track. Cooler valleys are
already reporting temperatures in the upper 20s and lower 30s.
Have adjusted the hourly temperatures and dew points through the
rest of the night to account for these trends in the observations.
An area of scattered higher-based cumulus is currently moving
across southwest ohio and north central kentucky. Some of this may
brush the i-64 corridor overnight, along with the potential for
some fairly thin high clouds advecting in from illinois indiana
closer to dawn. Overall, still expect a mostly clear night for
most locations. Updates have been sent.
Update issued at 750 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019
higher-based cumulus are gradually dissipating across eastern
kentucky early this evening. Mostly clear skies look to reign
through the majority of the night, as high pressure continues to
meander east across the ohio valley. Temperatures and dew points
are starting out several degrees lower compared to last night.
This should yield lows well down into the 20s in the normally
colder valleys. Have made a few tweaks to the temperatures based
on the latest trends in observations. Updates will be out shortly.
Short term (this evening through Tuesday night)
issued at 301 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019
the short term portion of the forecast will feature continued
below normal temperatures, dry weather, and light winds across|
eastern kentucky. A ridge of high pressure will allow for partly
cloudy skies through early this evening. The clouds will thin out
overnight, giving way to mostly clear conditions that will last
through the day on Tuesday and most of Tuesday night. Small ridge
valley temperature differences will occur the Tuesday night, as
winds go near calm and skies clear off, with valley temps falling
into the mid 20s, while the surrounding ridges only fall into the
upper 20s to lower 30s. Highs on Tuesday are expected to top out
in the lower 50s across eastern kentucky.
Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
issued at 357 pm edt Mon mar 18 2019
the extended portion of the forecast begins on Wednesday with the
upper level pattern being a more progressive in nature but also
transitioning to a more meridional. With a ridge building over
the rockies and shifting east, a trough ahead of this will track
across the upper midwest and into the great lakes and oh valley.
This system will drag a weak cold front across the area. This run
shows a better organized system bringing a better chance of
showers to the area. Still, moisture available is quite shallow
so while there is a good chance for accumulating precip, will
expect no more than a tenth of QPF Wednesday evening and into the
day on Thursday.
By Friday and into the weekend, the mentioned ridge over the west
will shift east and take residence over the eastern conus. This in
conjunction with surface high pressure will bring a prolonged
period of dry weather along with seasonal temperatures. By Sunday
night, the pattern begins to get active again as another system
begins to impact the area, though models have been inconsistent
with the arrival of this disturbance. Overall, the extended still
remains rather dry with seasonal temps.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 140 am edt Tue mar 19 2019
vfr conditions will remain through the period as surface high
pressure continues to dominate the region. Some mid-level cumulus
clouds are possible in the afternoon, but mostly clear skies will
be the main story through the evening. Winds will be light and
variable throughout the period 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.
