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.

Southerly flow will keep warm air and a chance of rain in the
region today and tonight. On Monday, a cold front will swing up
the ohio valley, pushing a better chance of rain showers across
the region during the afternoon and evening. A quick shot of
light snow will be possible on Tuesday. High pressure will then
offer dry conditions and near normal temperatures for the middle
of the week.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
A moist southerly flow remains over the region this morning.
With the weak lift, scattered light rain and some fog has
developed. Added a mention of patchy dense fog in the i-70
corridor through 6-8 am.
As today progresses, a sfc low will develop and move
into the central plains. In response, a warm front develops in
the lower great lakes. Lift will increase across the northern
counties, so expect better coverage closer to the front. Can't
rule out pcpn developing across SRN locations as several
mesoscale models are producing a band of pcpn in kentucky and
lifting it north through the area this afternoon. So went with
chance pops across the region.
Highs this afternoon should range from the mid 40s in the north
to the lower to mid 50s in NRN ky.
Short term 6 pm this evening through Tuesday
The front will continue to lift north this evening into nrn
ohio, which will pull the lift northward. This will limit the
pcpn chances tonight to NRN sections. Do not expect too much of
a drop in temperatures tonight with mild lows in the lower to
On Monday, a deep closed low pushes out the rockies and into
the plains. Ahead of the upper low, a deepening surface low will
eject northeast into the upper ms valley. Consensus of the
models is to be a little slower with the convection. It looks
like the line of showers will work through the fa on Monday
afternoon ahead of the front. Model soundings continue to limit
wind gust potential to mid 20s. Highs Monday will range from
the lower 50s in the northwest to the lower 60s in the
Cold air will begin to work behind the front Monday night. Snow
will mix in with the rain by the end of the night.
The upper low ejects northeast up the st. Lawrence valley on
Tuesday. Winds will be strong with gusts into the 30s. An area
of snow will affect the region on the strong caa. Less than an
inch of snow is expected. Temperatures are expected to fall
throughout the day.
Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
Broad surface high pressure will move east into the area during
the second half of the week, as the upper pattern gradually
switches from troughing to ridging over the eastern half of the
conus. This will bring dry conditions and gradually warming
temperatures through Friday.
Behind the departing surface high, and with troughing developing
over the plains, moist flow from the gulf is expected to move into
the ohio valley again over the weekend -- especially later Saturday
into Sunday. Overall model agreement in this pattern remains strong
across several gfs ECMWF runs -- and without getting into specifics
that far out, conditions appear warmer than normal with rain
Aviation 12z Sunday through Thursday
Conditions will generally be on the side of improvement this
morning. Northern TAF sites will see MVFR CIGS with some vsby
restrictions in -ra and br early on. This will mix out as the
southerly component of the wind kicks in where light southeast
or calm winds are currently prevailing with lower cigs. Looking
upstream towards kentucky, CIGS are improving toVFR and this is
what is expected for all locations today. A few more passing
showers will skirt the northern CWA and TAF sites along the i-70
corridor, primarily in the late day. Have brought in lifr cigs
for the late day and better part of the overnight. Wind shear to
40-50kt will occur during the predawn hours tomorrow as the
earlier lifr CIGS lift back toVFR in strong mixing.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visbilities in rain likely late
Monday into Monday evening. MVFR ceilings likely Tuesday with
possible MVFR visbilities.

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.
