Marine Weather and Tides
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

High pressure will maintain dry weather and warming temperature
Near term through tonight
High pressure will ensure a dry forecast through the near term.
Sun and building heights will bring temperatures back well above
Short term Friday through Saturday night
Dry weather continues into Friday, although the increasing
moisture will bring humidity levels back up. With the ridge axis
nearly overhead Friday afternoon evening, it will be hard to
generate the isolated showers that models consistently show.
That said, a weak shortwave will try to erode the ridge Friday
evening. Will keep slight chance pops in the forecast for late
Friday evening creeping up to low chance during the overnight
By Saturday, the ridge is sufficiently broken down by a
shortwave trough exiting the midwest. The result will be
scattered showers and thunderstorms increasing in coverage|
during peak heating in the afternoon evening. Temperatures will
continue to be well above average.
Long term Sunday through Thursday
Model consensus is of persistent weak troughing over the ern
conus early next week, with a cutoff southern stream low over
the sern states. A forecast of warm and humid conditions with
diurnally supported convection was thus maintained. The best
chance of organized precipitation comes with a slightly more
organized system Thursday into Friday.
Aviation 18z Thursday through Tuesday
Vfr through the TAF period under high pressure. Isolated
convection possible late Friday afternoon evening.
restriction potential returns with a weekend low pressure trough.

NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
