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.

Behind a cold front, high pressure will begin to move into the ohio
valley today, bringing cool and dry conditions. Dry weather will
continue through the end of the week, as temperatures slowly
increase as the high moves off to the east.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
The surface cold front has cleared through the state of ohio,
and precipitation behind it (which included a brief change to
snow) has moved out of the iln forecast area. This sets up a
relatively simple weather pattern through today, with deep-layer
nw flow behind the mid-level shortwave (and in advance of a
surface high). This will keep a cold advection scenario in
The only complication is the clouds forecast. As a band of
1500-3500 foot clouds behind the front exits the region to the
east, a larger area of stratocumulus is advecting in from the
north. Model solutions (including recent hrrr rap runs) suggest
that this moisture will begin to shunt east and break up over
the next several hours, but this may not occur as fast as the
model projections would indicate. Sky grids for the next 4-8
hours were edited to increase coverage in the northern sections
of the cwa.
No significant changes were made to the temperature forecast,
though it is worth noting that the GFS hrrr rap are notably
warmer than the nam, and (especially where sunnier conditions
are expected in the southern cwa) the slightly warmer numbers
(near 40 lower 40s) will be used. The northern half of the cwa
will likely remain in the middle to upper 30s.
Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Thursday
By this evening, as surface high pressure moves into the region,
the gradient will relax and skies are expected to clear. There
is a weak wave in the flow aloft that will move into the region
by Thursday, actually leading to some warm advection at and
above 850mb. This will also lead to an increase in mid-level
clouds as a result (mainly 700mb and above) especially across
the northern sections of the forecast area.
Aside from these clouds, and a gradual switch to southwesterly
flow on Thursday, there is little to discuss for the rest of the
short term forecast period. The clear skies and light winds
should allow for min temps to drop into the middle 20s on
Thursday morning, followed by a slight increase in MAX temps
on Thursday as opposed to Wednesday -- values in the lower to
Long term Thursday night through Tuesday
Surface high pressure will remain across the ohio valley Thursday
night, and will then move east on Friday. Little cloud cover is
expected through this period. The surface pressure gradient will
tighten some on Friday between the departing high and the approach
of cold front to our west. After a cold start in the mid and upper
20s, sunshine and WAA should boost temperatures into the lower and|
For Friday night and Saturday, mid level trough will dig south into
the great lakes and ohio valley. As this occurs, a cold front will
move east through the region late Friday night and Saturday morning.
The front is moisture starved, and mainly clouds are expected with
frontal passage. Have held on to a slight chance of showers across
northern zones where there may be enough forcing saturation for this
to occur. Otherwise, after a fairly mild start in the lower 40s,
highs on Saturday will only be slightly cooler than Fridays highs
due to weak CAA and considerable sunshine. Temperatures should range
from the upper 40s northwest to the lower 50s elsewhere.
Some of the operational models, such as the cmc and the ecmwf, have
trended a little quicker with aforementioned mid level trough, and
subsequently a more blunted CAA push with a secondary dry cold front
Saturday night into Sunday. As a result, have not gone as cold for
highs on Sunday (lower to mid 40s) with the now the prospect of
skies being mostly sunny.
Surface high pressure is now expected to build into the region
Sunday night and then move east on Monday. Given that the CAA from
Sunday will be more blunted muted, we are now expecting a faster
return flow WAA pattern on Monday. So after a cold start in the mid
and upper 20s, highs will boost into the mid 40s north to near 50
south on Monday.
Monday night into Tuesday is expected to by dry as a mid level ridge
traverses east through the region. Stronger WAA and a tightening
pressure gradient southerly flow by Tuesday will warm temperatures
into the mid and upper 50s.
Aviation 10z Wednesday through Sunday
An area of stratocumulus clouds has moved into the northern taf
sites, and these clouds should persist for at least another few
hours. While these clouds are mainlyVFR, some brief MVFR
ceilings will be possible.
Otherwise,VFR conditions are expected through the day, with the
stratocumulus clouds gradually dissipating. Winds out of the
nnw will be at around 10 knots this afternoon, before
diminishing and becoming near zero tonight. Some additional
mid-level clouds will move in during the overnight hours.
Outlook... No significant weather expected.

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.
