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 cold front will approach the area tonight and cross through by
Friday morning. Weak high pressure will then prevail through
Saturday. Another front and associated low pressure will be across
the area Saturday night through Monday. High pressure will then move
in next Tuesday and remain into the middle of next week.

the spotty showers that have been developing over the lower
susquehanna river valley and parts of maryland, delaware and
southern new jersey this afternoon have not been getting much
traction. A capping inversion aloft has been limiting the
vertical development of the cells.
Our main concern is the convective complex that was moving into
the poconos. It is expected to impact our northern counties
this evening and recent trends in the data have it making a
common southward turn toward the philadelphia metro and central
new jersey as well. This complex of storms has a history of
wind damage as it moves southeast. Lapse rates are steep along
with mixed layer CAPE of 1,000 j kg CAPE or higher, shear is
more modest but sufficient for complex to maintain through the
evening hours. Updated pops considerably based on this
information from philadelphia and points north with the
expectation of a period of thunderstorms with damaging winds and
heavy rain moving northwest to southeast across these portions
of the region. Hail can not be ruled out as well. Late this
evening, we will loose peak heating and the decrease of
instability which will lead to decreasing trends of any
The sky over our region should become clear to partly cloudy. A
surface trough trailing the convective complex is expected to
pass through our forecast area late tonight.
The wind is anticipated to become light and variable overnight. Low
temperatures should be mostly in the 70s.
Short term 6 am Friday morning through 6 pm Friday
Maximum temperatures on Friday will be similar to those of today.
However, the humidity is forecast to be slightly lower. We will
leave the excessive heat warning in place for the urban corridor.
However, other areas should fall a bit short of their criteria for a
The sky is expected to be mostly sunny on Friday. We will not
mention any precipitation due to the lack of any significant
triggering mechanism along with the continued existence of a capping
The wind should favor the west and southwest on Friday around 5 to
Long term Friday night through Thursday
The heat wave will continue on into the weekend, but it will gradually
weaken with temperatures more in line with normal after Monday. A
few recent model runs are showing than high temperatures around 90
degrees readings are possible Monday, something which has
changed since yesterday, but for now we will continue with upper
80s across the philadelphia metro area and for DELMARVA too.
Dew point temperatures will be lower over the area Saturday, but
then climb back to steamy values Sunday and early Monday. A
front will cross the area Monday and drier and cooler air will
arrive behind that for the middle of next week.
Shower and TSTM chances will be rather low Friday night and into
Saturday morning, but then increase from W to E through the afternoon
as the the front and humid air return to the area. High chance
to low likely pops will be over the area Sunday into Monday as
the system passes the region. Lower pops will be over the area

A complex of thunderstorms is forecast to pass across parts of
eastern pennsylvania and northern and central new jersey this
evening. The storms now look to have a higher potential to
impact kpne and kphl but look to stay north of kilg, kmiv and
kacy, they are expected to impact the areas around krdg, kabe
kttn, kpne and kphl between about 2200z and 0200z. The
thunderstorms may bring localized wind gusts of 30 to 35 knots
from the northwest. Additonal adm coming shortly to account for
this as of 5:30 pm.
Also, patchy visibility restrictions are possible during the late
night and early morning hours especially in areas where rain falls
We are not anticipating any showers or thunderstorms on Friday.

High pressure over the atlantic will continue to influence the
coastal waters of delaware and new jersey for tonight. A weak
frontal boundary from the northwest is forecast to arrive early on
Friday. The wind should favor the south and southwest at less than
15 knots tonight, becoming west to southwest on Friday. Wave heights
on our ocean waters will remain around 2 to 4 feet and waves on
delaware bay should be 1 to 2 feet. Thunderstorms on the
coastal waters from acy northward may result in gusty winds for
a few hours this evening.
sub-sca conditions overall. The main hazard will be sct tstms
mainly between Saturday afternoon and Monday. Locally higher
winds and seas with tstms. Bring your NOAA weather radio along
to get alerts.
the underlying 10 to 14 second southeasterly swell is forecast to
persist into Friday. As a result, we will continue the moderate risk
for the development of dangerous rip currents through that time.
The kdov dew point readings are unrepresentative of the area
and should not be used when diagnosing humidity heat indices 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.
