Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Short term (this afternoon through Wednesday)
issued at 259 am edt Mon jun 18 2018
the lower ohio valley will remain under the influence of upper level
ridging today. However, this ridge will begin to break down and
flatten out tonight. A frontal boundary currently up across northern
in will sink slowly southward today and tonight.
Today will be another hot and humid day with high temperatures
topping out in the upper 80s to lower 90s. Today may be a degree or
two cooler than yesterday with more cloud cover. However, peak heat
index values are still forecast to be in the 95-100 degree range.
Lows tonight will again be on the warm side in the lower to mid 70s.
Isolated to scattered storms are expected to develop once again with
the heat of the afternoon. Portions of southern in and north central
ky will see a bit higher coverage of storms near the slow moving
front. However, will keep the forecast coverage mainly 40% or less
at this time.
Long term (Wednesday night through Monday)
issued at 330 am edt Tue jun 19 2018
Tropical humidity to persist through the period...
while a brief respite from intense heat is expected later this week,
the tropical humidity that has accompanied it over the past several
days will not be departing.
An upper level low over the pacific northwest early this morning
will attempt to weaken the broad upper level ridge that has been
responsible for the hot, humid airmass over much of the central and
eastern part of the country this week. While the clouds associated
with this disturbance will help reduce daytime heating, the surface
pressure pattern will only briefly cut off the gulf moisture already
in place over most of the eastern u.S., so overnight lows should
remain above normal, with the upper 60s as low as most locations can|
expect to see for overnight lows through the period.
Hit and miss thunderstorms will continue to pop up Wednesday in the
tropical airmass. As the upper low tracks into through the missouri
valley Thursday and Friday, rain coverage will increase across the
area, with heavy downpours possible from any storm that develops.
This, along with the slow movement of the storms in the weak flow
aloft ahead of the upper low, could pose problems for runoff, with
localized flooding being a greater threat than hail or strong winds
from any of the storms this week. The axis of the heaviest
widespread rain through the period currently looks to be north of
the ohio river, though this could change with any diversion of the
track of the upper low.
For now, the best that can be said about this forecast is that even
though dry weather is not on the way, we will see a day or two when
at least the high temperatures could be on the "cool" side of
normal by a degree or two.
Aviation (12z TAF issuance)
issued at 650 am edt Tue jun 19 2018
high pressure was in place over the southeast u.S. This morning with
a nearly stationary frontal boundary stretching from western iowa
through northern indiana and ohio. In the warm, muggy air south of
the front across the ohio valley, isolated diurnal thunderstorms
will again develop after 18z. With little upper dynamics to support
them, however, these will be short-lived.
Winds will be out of the west to southwest today and increase to
around 10-12 knots by mid day.

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.
