Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 242 am edt Sun mar 24 2019
low pressure just west of kansas city as the Sun comes up this
morning will move to near st louis by this evening, poking a warm
front eastward into the ohio valley this afternoon. Moisture has
already increased in the mid and upper levels as evidenced by
increasingly widespread ac, but it will take some time for the very
dry lower levels to moisten up. By this afternoon scattered light
rain showers will be possible. Temperatures should MAX out in the
upper 50s in indiana but most folks in kentucky should see readings
in the 60s this afternoon.
Tonight the low will continue its eastward trek and end up near
louisville by sunrise Monday. Rain will be much more widespread
tonight as this feature approaches. There is some elevated
instability showing up on soundings, suggesting some rumbles of
thunder will be possible. Rainfall amounts of a quarter to half an
inch are expected. Lows should be around 50.
Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 253 am edt Sun mar 24 2019
by Monday morning, surface low associated with earlier showers and
storms will be nearly overhead of the region. Models indicate this
low will move steadily to the south and east during the day Monday,
dragging a surface cold front behind it. Not expecting a lot of
precipitation overall Monday, but coverage of showers and isolated|
storms warrant some higher pops. Colder and drier air behind the
front will scour out all of the precipitation by Monday evening.
Surface high pressure and a building upper level ridge to the west
will then keep us dry and mild Tuesday through much of the upcoming
week. Temperatures will gradually warm during the week as the core
of warmer temperatures associated with the upper level ridge begin
to move into the ohio valley. The next shot for any precipitation
may come as early as Friday ahead of a cold front, though most
guidance point to the weekend as having the best precipitation
chances, which is highlighted in the current forecast.
Aviation (06z TAF issuance)
updated at 1248 am edt Sun mar 24 2019
low pressure along the kansas nebraska border early this morning will
move to central kentucky by 12z Monday, with its warm front reaching
into the blue grass state tonight. Light rain showers will move out
ahead of the system. The best chance for rain, possibly taking
conditions to MVFR, will be tonight as the low approaches. Some
thunder will be possible at hnb and sdf, but chances are too small
for inclusion in the tafs at this time.

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.
