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.

Upper low pressure will maintain cooler temperature and a periodic
shower chance for the first half of the week.
Near term through today
A weak lead shortwave is spawning some showers in lee of lake
erie early this morning. Another, albeit deeper trough is projected
across the great lakes this afternoon. Improved lapse rates and
falling convective thresholds under cooling mid levels all
support escalating precip probability with the surface
reinforcing front, but with inhibitions via moisture paucity.
No major changes were thus needed to the ongoing forecast of
eventual scattered showers and a slight thunderstorm chance
with more numerous convection over the I 80 corridor.
Cold advection will hold temperatures about 10 degrees under the
Short term tonight through Thursday
Cold troughing will persist through Tuesday but changes are
projected to ensue thereafter with moderating temperatures
as flow aloft flattens ridges in response to a trough digging
across western canada. Warmth and humidity are forecast to enhance
via southerly boundary layer flow as that trough progresses over
the northern plains upper midwest, and precip chances escalate
as ejected energy slides over the lakes and spawns convection by
Long term Thursday night through Sunday
The aforementioned trough associated cold front is projected across
the great lakes and upper ohio regions next weekend. Precip is
thus likely but temperature in the wake of the system is
expected to remain near the seasonal averages given the lack of
amplitude in the progged flow pattern.
Aviation 07z Monday through Friday
Vfr forecast through the period. Scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms will develop during the afternoon. Currently only
have enough confidence to include vicinity. Will keep the risk
for thunder at fkl and duj. For the PORTS south of pit, will not
have any mention of precip. Winds will increase by late morning
or early afternoon as mixing heights rise. Gusts of 20 to 25 mph
Brief restrictions are possible with showers and scattered
storms Tuesday with the passage of the upper trough axis.

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.
