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.

159 pm edt Fri may 25 2018
High pressure will move off to the east today resulting in
southerly winds that will bring increasing heat and humidity.
Scattered showers and thunderstorms are forecast over the
weekend, particularly in the afternoon and evening.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
High pressure will be east of the area today allowing for
southerly flow and warm temperatures. Went close to guidance
with high temperatures in the middle and upper 80s.
There is not a lot of forcing today, but there is some
instability that develops across far southeastern portions of
the forecast area across the lower scioto valley and therefore a
few storms will be possible there this afternoon with daytime
Short term 6 pm this evening through Saturday night
This evening into Saturday morning weak PVA will approach the
area from the west which will likely bring some form of
weakening showers and thunderstorms into the area Saturday
morning. During the afternoon Saturday a summer like pattern
will begin to take hold as humidity and atmospheric moisture in
general returns to the ohio valley. Numerous showers and
thunderstorms will likely develop Saturday afternoon during peak
heating as forecast soundings quickly destabilize. Shear values
are extremely low, so am not expecting much in the way of
severe. As mentioned above, it appears to be a day of garden
variety showers and thunderstorms. Saturday night, the coverage
of showers and thunderstorms will slowly decrease as daytime
heating is lost.
Long term Sunday through Thursday
Mid level short wave energy will push east across the southern great
lakes through Saturday night. Between this and the loss of diurnal
heating, we should see a decreasing chance of showers and
thunderstorms from west to east across our area Saturday night.
Some mid level ridging will try to build into the region Sunday into|
Monday, with our area in between the tropical system to the south
and an upper level low over the rockies. This will allow for
temperatures to push into mid to upper 80s for highs on Sunday and
then the upper 80s to near 90 for highs on Monday. The models are
suggesting the possibility of a weak boundary pushing down into the
region on Sunday. This, combined with decent instabilities, will
result in the possibility for isolated to scattered
afternoon evening thunderstorms. By Monday, there is little in the
way of forcing so think any thunderstorm activity will be fairy
Moisture associated with the tropical system to our south will work
slowly north through mid week. This could allow for a few showers or
thunderstorms to sneak into our southern areas by Tuesday, with a
better chance of showers and thunderstorms then pushing north across
the rest of our area for Wednesday into Thursday. High temperatures
on Tuesday will be in the mid to upper 80s with highs mainly in the
mid 80s for Wednesday and Thursday.
Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
Vfr conditions will start out the TAF period. There will be an
increase inVFR clouds overnight and some MVFR CIGS will be
possible by the end of the TAF period on Saturday.
A few showers will be possible overnight and expect
thunderstorms to develop during the day on Saturday as an upper
level disturbance approaches the region. Added vcts in for now,
however tsra will likely need to be added in future tafs.
Outlook... Afternoon and evening thunderstorms are possible
Saturday and Sunday.

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.
