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.

Mild weather this weekend and then strong cold front crosses late
Monday with widespread rainfall. Cooler and windy behind the
front, but turning warmer again late week.

weak lift and overrunning moisture leading to widespread stratus
clouds early this morning. Radar showing echos developing -- but
no observations showing any precipitation reaching the ground
yet. Eventually we will see some areas of drizzle or light rain
making it to the ground, mainly across the northern half of the
forecast area as a warm front lifts through. The precipitation
and lower clouds should gradually drift north of the forecast
area late today into tonight.
Temperatures will hold fairly steady through the pre-dawn,
before another mild day today. Bumped up highs across the coal
fields, where we should get some breaks in the clouds this
afternoon, otherwise no major changes made. Southerly flow will
provide another mild night tonight.
Short term Monday through Tuesday
As of 215 am Sunday...
main change to the overall forecast for the short term is the
increase in the sustained winds and gusts, mainly in the post
frontal environment. May end up in advisory criteria for wind in
the highest elevations Tuesday into Tuesday night. Otherwise, no
major changes to the forecast timing and QPF amounts. Still not
getting any thunder to come out of the weather grids as
instability is low, but wind profile certainly details a strong
speed and directional shear environment. Will not discount the
possibility of thunder completely, however, given the spc
general thunder risk over our area in the day 2 convective
Still very warm Monday ahead of the cold front with guidance in
the mid to upper 60s for the lowlands. Drop off in temperature
will be sharp behind the front, but the pacific nature of the
system keeps temperatures near normal mid week.
Long term Tuesday night through Saturday

have already the lingering wind, especially in the mountains,
carrying over from the short term period. Have some post frontal
low level moisture to deal with Tuesday night, a brief lull, and
then again late Wednesday and Wednesday night with a quick
moving open wave in the flow aloft. There is snow potential, but
really playing down any accumulations in the mountains at this|
point for Tuesday night.
Another warm up is expected as high pressure passes to the east
of the mountains and puts the region in warm advection return
Aviation 11z Sunday through Thursday
As of 600 am Sunday...
MVFR stratus generally confined to NW corner of the forecast
area. Have generallyVFR across the south, with some MVFR in
stratus across the north. Cannot rule out some areas of drizzle
or light rain today across the north as well, but probabilities
low enough to keep out of tafs at this point. Winds will remain
out of the south through the period.
Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Monday...
forecast confidence: medium.
Alternate scenarios: timing of category changes may vary today.
Could get some fog tonight, especially if clouds break and winds
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.
