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.

Another cold morning with temperatures near, or below zero, but
with light wind. Readings will modify rapidly today. Precipitation
chances in the form of rain and freezing rain return early on
Near term until 6 pm this evening
The only change needed for the predawn update was the addition
of some brief flurries as the intial warm, moist, mid level
surge crosses the area.
Otherwise, another cold morning, albeit without the wind chill
indices, is under way with surface high pressure sliding across
the region. Regional temperatures are near, or a few degrees
below zero - about 20 degrees under the averages.
Temperature recovery back toward the average highs can be
expected today as strong warm advection ensues in advance of
plains low pressure. A 30 to 35 degree low-to-high spread is
Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday
That plains low is forecast to dig rapidly toward the great
lakes and continue the warm, and eventually moist advection over
the upper ohio region. Temperature parameters continue to look
sufficient to leave out any snow mention for Tuesday night as
per indications of a much warmer overall atmospheric column and
a later onset time - all consistent with strong warm advection
on the van of low pressure digging well north of the upper ohio
The threat of freezing rain will be dependent on lingering sub-
freezing ground temperature after this quick cold snap. Boundary
layer warm advection, warm rain, and condensational latent
warming as dewpoints rise above 32f with latent heat release as
any ice forms should quickly neutralize that potential on|
Wednesday morning. A hazardous weather outlook mention was
restricted to the more favorable north and eastern zones of the
region where cold will linger today.
Categorical pops were maintained through much of Wednesday as
forcing for ascent increases with the encroachment of the
systems cold front and strong jet MAX aloft.
By Wednesday night, that front is expected to cross the region
with residual rain changing to snow showers. Progged progression
of the front is slower today given parallel flow and
indications of a shortwave moving along the frontal zone. That
feature will rainfall to areas SE of pit, where totals may
exceed push toward 1.5 inch for the 24 hour period before precip
changes to snow. Mid level drying and initially shallow cold
air should limit snow accumulation potential to an inch or two
before shower transition completes on Thursday.
Long term Thursday night through Monday
Passage of that front will usher in a period of much colder
weather and periodic snow showers as a broad, high amplitude
trough develops over the conus.
Aviation 10z Tuesday through Saturday
High pressure will slide across the area today supportingVFR
and light SE wind.
Restrictions will return Wednesday with the next low pressure

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.
