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.

733 am edt Thu may 24 2018
High pressure will dominate the weather through Saturday. A
backdoor cold front pushes across the area Saturday night into
Sunday morning, becoming nearly stationary just south and west
of the area through memorial day. Another cold front follows on
Tuesday with high pressure building in behind.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
Minor changes to forecast based on latest observations.
Heights will gradually rise today as a longwave trough to the
east shifts further into the northern atlantic and ridging to
the west builds.
Sfc high pressure builds from the west today with just some thin
cirrus and perhaps a few CU this aftn from convergence along
seabreeze boundaries. Highs will range from mid 70s to around
80 across much of the tri-state area. Lower 80s are expected in
metro ny nj.
Short term 6 pm this evening through Friday night
Upper level ridging over the great lakes will flatten through
fri night as it traverses eastward as a result of vortexes
remaining over the labrador sea and northern greenland and a
shortwave trough over the western canadian provinces tracking
At the sfc, a return flow develops tonight as high pres shifts
off the new england mid atlantic coasts and continues slowly
into the western atlantic through Fri night. This will result
in an increasingly warm and humid airmass. Expect mostly clear
skies with just some cirrus and perhaps a few CU Fri aftn early
eve. There is also the potential for stratus mainly Fri night
(2nd night of southerly flow) across eastern LI and SE ct. Have
hinted at this in the forecast with partly cloudy skies
developing Fri night. Patchy fog is also a possibility mainly in
rural areas both tonight and Fri night.
Long term Saturday through Wednesday
A broad upper level ridge across the southern two thirds of the
country will get suppressed a bit south through early next week|
as a short wave trough progresses across the great lakes and
northeast states. Model differences exist with the magnitude of
the latter feature, which sends a weak cold front across the
region Tuesday. In the case of the gfs, the boundary more or
less washes out as frontal wave passes to the south.
The better agreement though comes with sending a backdoor cold
front across the region Saturday night into Sunday morning,
putting an end to a string of days well above normal. Showers
and thunderstorms are also seeming more likely Saturday night
into Sunday morning as the front interacts with modest
instability, but a weakly sheared environment.
Showers will likely linger into Sunday, but chances should
diminish as high pressure builds southward across new england.
Sufficient overrunning ahead of the approaching upper trough
will be worthy of keeping the mention of showers in through
memorial day. There could even be some scattered thunderstorms
Sunday afternoon west of nyc, depending on how far to the south
and west the boundary stalls.
Additionally, with an easterly flow, temperatures continue to
trend down Sunday and Monday. It may be a bit more tricky Monday
with breaks in the cloud cover as the high weakens, especially
for locations across the interior.
Warmer weather then returns for the Tuesday through Wednesday
timeframe as high pressure builds both aloft and at the surface.
Aviation 12z Thursday through Monday
High pressure builds over the region today.
Vfr conditions are expected through the TAF period, however there's
a low to moderate chance that ifr stratus shifts into kgon this
afternoon and a low chance that it then spreads into kisp kbdr this
Nnw winds this morning will shift around to local seabreezes in the
afternoon, except kswf. Speeds around 10 kt.

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.
