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.

A lingering surface trough of low pressure will continue to
weaken as the main low exits northeast of the canadian maritime
provinces. An upper level trough will cross the ohio valley late
today, removing the upward lift that is producing any lingering
snow. High pressure will then build in the southeastern u.S. And
allow a warmup for the ohio valley through Saturday when the
next cold front pushes through.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Lingering light snow will be waning today in favor of some
passing flurries. By afternoon, a digging upper level trough
will bring back the necessary upper lift to keep light snow
and or flurries in the forecast for the region. Temperatures
will be fairly steady in the lower 30s through the day, or just
experience a very slight rise of about 5 degrees off of the
morning low temps.
Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday
Upper level trough will be crossing the region early in the
period and remove the flurry light snow threat early this
evening. High pressure will build to the south and return flow
will permit a warmup with southerly winds through Saturday.
Dry conditions will prevail through the period.
Long term Friday night through Tuesday
Southwest flow will pool gulf moisture into the region and it
will get wrung out ahead of the next developing cold front
beginning in the predawn hours Saturday in the northwest.
Convergence will keep rain over the region through the day
Saturday and MAX out in the evening. Some of this rain may be
moderate to heavy, and thunderstorms will probably need to be
put in the forecast for Saturday night as the upper level trough
strengthens as it interacts with the surface front.|
Any rain will quickly be pushed east late Saturday night early
Sunday morning and cold air will filter back in, producing some
light instability showers on Sunday in the north until the upper
level trough axis crosses overnight. The cold air intrusion
Sunday and Monday will bring back seasonally normal temperatures
for early next week before a warmup is indicated for mid week.
Aviation 12z Wednesday through Sunday
A h5 S W will swing through the ohio valley today. A combination
of cold air advection and lift from the shortwave will keep
scattered flurries in the area. So kept a vcsh at the tafs. In
addition, getting a few reports of freezing drizzle around
cincinnati, but radar has that feature moving east, so did not
mention the fzdz at either cvg or luk. MVFR ceilings will
persist through the day with heights likely rising to around
2500 feet by 18z.
Ceilings should rise toVFR towards 00z as the disturbance
pulls east of the region and high pressure begins to build in.
Models are showing that the low level moisture breaks at cvg
and luk late in the period, allow the low clouds to scatter out.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visibilities possible Saturday into
Iln watches warnings advisories

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.
