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.

High pressure will bring dry and warm weather through mid-week

Near term through Tuesday
525pm... Only minor changes to the cloud cover. Rest of the
forecast is in excellent shape.
Upper ridging on the NRN side of hurricane maria will maintain
broad subsidence over the region, leading to dry mid levels and
only passing cirrus. Temp maxima in the upper 80s and dewpoints
in the 60s should slow the falloff of temps this evening until
late tonight, when localized fog may form again in the river
valleys as the boundary layer nears saturation.
Tuesday will see little change in the overall pattern, and
therefore little change in the forecast apart from a slight
cooling of h8 temperature. Hence, Tue maxima may end up slightly
below those observed today. Despite deep mixing, a mid-level
inversion will limit vertical development of clouds, suppressing
any precipitation during the day.
Short term Tuesday night through Thursday night
A shortwave trough will deliver a glancing blow to the western
great lakes region, driving a cold front sewd on Wed as maria
comes as near as it will get to the DELMARVA coastline. After
another warm day on wed, this front will make a swd push wed
evening and help escort the hurricane out to sea, but will also
serve to scour out the low-level warmth and moisture from the
Models are somewhat aggressive on moisture ahead of the
approaching boundary, which appears to be contributing to
broader coverage of precipitation as the models develop
instability. Given a more-realistic dewpoint in the low-mid 60s,
instability is more meager, so pops with the frontal passage were
reduced from the default model blend values.
High pressure returns on Thu with a marked cooldown expected.
After the summer-like temperature experienced recently, maxima
in the upper 60s will feel rather cool, although hardly
Long term Friday through Monday
As an upper ridge builds into the great plains, a shortwave
trough will move sewd across the great lakes. Lacking boundary-
layer moisture, the extent of any precipitation is unclear. But
models signal at least a possibility of measurable light
precipitation during the wave's passage on fri.
In the wake of the wave, high pressure returns for Saturday,
with seasonable temperature through the weekend. Models diverge
thereafter on the upper pattern, with both models indicating a
wrn trough, but the GFS suggesting an amplifying upper ridge for
the ern CONUS and a slower approach of the trough to the great
lakes region. Given these discrepancies, did not deviate
significantly from the default model blend values in the
Aviation 22z Monday through Saturday
High pressure will maintain light southeast wind andVFR
through the TAF period. In the early morning hours of Tuesday
morning some non-vfr visibility restrictions possible from
patchy morning fog.
Restrictions are possible with cold fronts Wed night and fri.
While we will not be quite as warm as over the weekend,
temperature this afternoon still will be 15 or more degrees
above seasonal averages this afternoon. Here are the local
record high temperatures for Monday:

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.
