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.

Low pressure over the great lakes will continue to move
northeast of the region, but cold air behind the system will
keep cloudy skies in the forecast through tomorrow. Dry
conditions will return as high pressure moves into the
southeastern states on Thursday, and temperatures will
gradually warm up going into the weekend.
Near term through Wednesday
Upper level disturbance and associated surface trof will move
east southeast of the region by early morning. Scattered rain
and or snow showers across the southern southeastern cwfa
will then taper off. Little to no snow accumulation is
expected. Thereafter, in the caa, we may see a few flurries, so
have continued with a chance of flurries overnight.
Lows tonight will bottom out in the upper 20s to the lower 30s.
Short term Wednesday night
The coldest 850mb 700mb temperatures expected this week will
move through the middle ohio valley on Wednesday afternoon. This
will set up Wednesday as the coolest day of the week (lower to
middle 30s), and also another very cloudy day, with rh near at
saturation at the top of the mixed layer through the afternoon.
This rh should begin to break up by evening as temperatures
aloft begin to warm. Flurries were added to Wednesday as well,
with some weak ascent also expected in advance of yet another
shortwave moving through the area. If this shortwave continues
to trend toward being better defined and slightly stronger, as
it did in the 12z model cycle, some pops and light accumulations
may need to be added in later forecasts.
On Wednesday night, heights will begin to rise quickly, as
surface high pressure makes its closest approach to the region
(though it will be centered well to the south). As is usually
the case, this position in the overall pattern supports the
coolest min temps for the period, with light surface winds and
skies beginning to clear. Forecast min temps have been lowered
by several degrees -- now ranging from the lower to middle 20s.
Long term Thursday through Tuesday
Mid level ridging will push east across the region Thursday
into Friday. An associated surface high pressure will be
centered across our area Thursday morning before beginning to
shift off to the east through the day. This will help keep us
dry on Thursday with temperatures a few degrees above normal.
Dry conditions are also expected Thursday night into Friday. As
we start to get on the back side of the high, southwesterly low
level flow WAA will be on the increase. This should help push
highs on Friday into the low to mid 50s.
Mid level short wave energy will drop down out of the upper midwest|
on Saturday and across the upper ohio valley through Sunday, helping
to push an associated cold front east across the region Sunday
morning. Ahead of this, there will be an increasing chance of rain
showers Friday night with pcpn then becoming more widespread
Saturday into Saturday evening. There is some uncertainty with
possible energy riding up along the front Sunday and just how long
any pcpn will linger across our area. For now, will go ahead and
trim pops back to chance category through the second half of the
weekend. Ptype will be all rain initially, but as CAA develops on
the back side of the front, there will be a mix with and then
possible transition over to snow through the day on Sunday. Highs on
Saturday will be in the low to mid 50s, with some non diurnal
temperatures then possible through Sunday as the front moves through.
A few snow showers may linger into Monday depending on just how fast
the upper level trough takes to pull out of the area. Ridging and
drier conditions will then work back into the region through mid
week. Temperatures will remain near seasonal readings through the
later part of the long term period.
Aviation 03z Wednesday through Sunday
Scattered rain and or snow showers will diminish from west to
east through 06z as a surface trof and its associated upper
level disturbance move east out of the region. Locally gusty winds
will diminish as well. CAA will continue with widespread
stratocumulus deck providing for MVFR ceilings generally between
1400 and 1800 feet.
On Wednesday, another upper level disturbance is forecast to
move east across the region during the afternoon and evening.
Some weak low level forcing associated with this feature may
produce a few snow flurries or isolated snow showers. Otherwise,
stratocumulus deck will persist through the day with heights
likely rising to around 2500 feet by 18z.
For Wednesday night, as the disturbance moves away, surface
ridging will build east into the ohio and tennessee valleys.
Stratocumulus deck should lift toVFR and gradually move east
out of the region overnight.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visibilities possible Saturday into

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.
