Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

120 pm edt Sun apr 22 2018
High pressure today. Upper low Monday through Wednesday. Weak
high pressure for the end of the week.
Near term through tonight
As of 1043 am Sunday...
forecast is in good shape this morning. Temps are tricky due to
high clouds but they appear to remain thin enough to allow most
lower elevation locations to rise into the lower 70s. Enjoy...
as of 105 am Sunday...
a high pressure system will control the weather today. However,
the right rear of an upper level jet will provide some high
clouds. Looking at soundings, expect that dry air will mix to
the ground during the afternoon hours. Therefore, will go on
the lower side of dewpoints.
An approaching upper level low will provide some clouds tonight
with chances of showers moving into some of the southern
counties late tonight.
Short term Monday through Wednesday night
As of 325 am Sunday...
a showery pattern will be the rule early next week with the
approach of an upper level system. Tuesday looks like the
wettest of days, though remaining mild throughout. Overall a
good setup for folks wanting to put down some grass seed, like
myself, and let mother nature do the watering in.
Long term Thursday through Saturday
As of 325 am Sunday...
weak high pressure builds in behind the departing upper level
system for Thursday and part of Friday. Thereafter, a cold front
will cross with showers and cooler air to follow for the
weekend. Just how cool remains uncertain with some disagreement
on the models of just how amplified this upper trof will be.
Aviation 17z Sunday through Thursday
As of 112 pm Sunday...
whileVFR conditions are anticipated through the TAF period, an
approaching storm system to our west will cause increasing winds|
aloft. This will cause a marginal low-level wind shear risk at crw
and ekn overnight tonight. Surface winds at bkw get strong enough
overnight to preclude a llws mention in that taf. Otherwise,
surface winds will increase after dawn on Monday elsewhere and
become gusty. High clouds in place now will gradually lower as
moisture increases Monday morning and a band of rain will advance
northeastward toward hts and bkw by the end of the TAF period.
Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 18z Monday...
forecast confidence: high.
Alternate scenarios: none.
Experimental table of flight category objectively shows consistency
of WFO forecast to available model information:
h = high: TAF consistent with all models or all but one model.
M = medium: TAF has varying level of consistency with models.
L = low: TAF inconsistent with all models or all but one model.

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.
