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.

High pressure building across the great lakes will keep dry
weather conditions over the area tonight through Thursday. A
weak cold front may bring few showers on Friday. High pressure
and drier air are forecast to return on Saturday and persist
Near term until 6 am Thursday morning
Surface analysis shows high pressure building into the great
lakes, pushed by a northwest flow aloft. Low clouds lingering in
a northerly low level flow behind departing surface low
pressure will continue to erode gradually this evening as drier
air works in, while high clouds move in as the upper flow
becomes westerly. This will leave partly cloudy to mostly clear
skies by later tonight, with more clouds remaining over eastern
locations. Low temperatures are forecast to range from around
40 north up to the mid 40s south.
Short term 6 am Thursday morning through Thursday night
For Thursday and Thursday night, we will find weak surface high
pressure extending across the great lakes into the state of
ohio. Meanwhile, low pressure will be traveling through the
tennessee valley. Precip with this rather compact low is
expected to remain south of the iln area, while cloud cover will
be greater along and south of the ohio river closer to the low
pressure. Generous solar radiation will help boost temperatures
up into the low to mid 60s for highs.
Long term Friday through Wednesday
An upper level S WV and its associated weak cold front will move
east across the region on Friday. These features will bring some
clouds and perhaps a few showers, mainly post frontal. Highs will
range from the lower to mid 60s.
Models have trended much deeper more pronounced on a long wave mid
level trough digging into the great lakes and ohio valley Friday
night into Saturday. Embedded S WV energy digging on the back side
of the developing mid level trough will accompany a cold front,
bringing some clouds and a chance of showers, mainly across the
northern zones Friday night into early Saturday. Partly to mostly
sunny skies are forecast in the wake of the front on Saturday, but
temperatures will show a downward trend with highs ranging from the
lower 50s northwest to the lower 60s south southeast.
For Saturday night into Sunday, surface high pressure will build
into the region from the northwest. Clear skies and winds becoming|
light Saturday night will probably result in some frost as
temperatures drop into the lower to mid 30s. Will mention this
threat in the hwo. On Sunday, despite sunshine, temperatures will
be cool, mainly mid and upper 50s.
As we head into early next week, the surface high will move east
while a mid level ridge moves into the great lakes and the ohio
valley. Dry weather, return flow, and sunshine, will result in a
warming trend with all locations seeing 70s by Tuesday.
There remains timing differences in the models on how fast mid level
ridge will move east, which will eventually allow moisture and a
cold front to move toward the region by mid to late week. For now, a
chance of showers and thunderstorms will continue in the forecast
for later Wednesday into Wednesday night well ahead of the cold
front. It will remain warm with highs in the 70s again on
Aviation 00z Thursday through Monday
GenerallyVFR conditions are expected through the TAF period.
As cumulus clouds dissipate somewhat this evening, an increase
in high clouds is expected. Winds will also become lighter as
they switch from the northwest to the north. The one forecast
item worth mentioning is the potential for fog overnight. This
is a low-confidence part of the forecast, but there does appear
to be some potential for reduced visibilities, especially at the
kcmh klck kiln sites. For now, MVFR visibilities will be
introduced to the forecast, but there is at least some potential
for ifr conditions.
Clouds will continue to increase somewhat tomorrow, butVFR
conditions should prevail. Winds will shift to the east but
become very light (perhaps light and variable at times).
Outlook... MVFR ceilings are possible Saturday morning.

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.
