Marine Weather and Tides
10/6/2018 Colors of tide XTide graphs changed to emphasize that they were upgraded. See next note. Comments welcome.
10/4/2018 I have fixed XTide and updated the harmonic files. There were some name changes so you might have to click EDIT to find the new station name.

652 pm est Fri feb 15 2019
A low pressure system south of the area will bring the potential
for some light snow near and south of the ohio river tonight.
High pressure will move into the region for Saturday and
Saturday night before another system brings precipitation
chances back into the region for Sunday.
Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
A few isolated wind gusts will be possible early this evening
before tapering off. A low pressure system will move south of
the region tonight. Models have continued to trend south with
this system with any precipitation across southern portions of
the region expected to be light. Limited precipitation chances
to the chance category near and south of the ohio river. Only
have a tenth or two of snowfall in the forecast in this area.
Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Saturday night
High pressure and dry conditions will be in place for much of
the short term time period. Went close to the blend for
temperatures during this time. High temperatures on Saturday
will be in the 30s to around 40 and low temperatures Saturday
night will be in the 20s to around 30.
A system will begin to move into the region at the very end of
the short term period bringing a wintry mix of precipitation to
Long term Sunday through Friday
A surface low pressure system will move out of the lower mississippi
valley and into the upper ohio valley Sunday into Sunday evening.
Ahead of this, an axis of isentropic lift will push north across our
area, leading to a chance of showers through much of the day on
Sunday. As the low moves off to the east of us, precipitation
chances will taper off through Sunday night. Thermal profiles
suggest a wintry mix Sunday morning. As we warm through the
day, the precipitation will transition over to rain for areas
mainly to the south of i-70. Some light snow accumulations of
generally less than an inch will be possible for areas along and
north of i-70. Light ice accumulations will be possible across
the region. Highs on Sunday will range from the low 30s in the
north to the mid 40s across the south.
Surface high pressure will build down from the northwest through the
day on Monday, leading to dry conditions and highs ranging from the
lower 30s to lower 40s.|
Upper level troughing over the western CONUS will keep persistent
southwesterly flow across the eastern CONUS through mid to late next
week. This will allow for a series of mid level short waves to move
out of the southern plains and across the southeastern united states
and or the ohio valley. There are some model timing and placement
issues with these though, leading to a lower confidence forecast as
we progress through the later part of the week. An initial surface
low will lift northeast into the tennessee valley Tuesday into
Tuesday night. This should spread precipitation up into our south
late in the day Tuesday and across our entire area for Tuesday
night. Pcpn should then taper off through the day on Wednesday as
the general trend is to keep any pcpn with a secondary wave of low
pressure mainly to our southeast. We will continue to see a
northwest to southeast temperature gradient across our area with
highs generally ranging from the mid to upper 30s across our far
northwest to the 40s across our southeast. This will also lead to
some continued ptype issues with mainly snow to the northwest and
rain to the southeast.
It looks like we will get into a break in the precipitation for
Thursday before another low pressure wave moves up from the
southwest for Friday. The best chance for precipitation for this will
again be across southeast portions of our area on Friday. Highs on
Friday will range from the lower 40s in the northwest to the upper
Aviation 00z Saturday through Wednesday
Weak weather system moving through the tn vly overnight with
the northern periphery of the pcpn shield staying south of the
taf sites. ExpectVFR conditions with mid and high clouds
through the night.
Cloud cover will begin to decrease Saturday morning as surface
high pressure builds into the great lakes.
Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visibilities possible Sunday and

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.
