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.

1119 am edt Fri jul 28 2017
A weak cold front stalls just south of the region this morning.
Low pressure developing over the ohio valley rides along this
front, passing south of long island on Saturday. Another wave
of low pressure moves along the stalled frontal boundary Monday,
south of the region. High pressure builds to the northwest
Sunday through Wednesday. The high weakens Thursday as a cold
front approaches from the northwest.
Near term until 6 pm this evening
The area remains in between systems today, as a weak cold front
settles south of the area and a shortwave diving out of the
upper midwest induces surface low development over the ohio
valley by this evening.
Expect the majority of the daylight hours to remain dry with
high temperatures near normal for late july, in the low to mid
80s. Clouds will move across from low to high levels but
coverage will not be too much and clouds themselves will not be
too thick to allow for partial Sun for most places.
A sea breeze has developed along the south shore of long island
as conveyed by a line of cumulus developing along a boundary in
that location. Temperatures increased slightly compared to
previous forecast but still have values in the low 80s for most
locations and mid 80s for the greater nyc metro area.
Short term 6 pm this evening through 6 pm Saturday
As the developing surface low emerges off the DELMARVA coast
this evening and rides northeast along the stalled frontal
boundary, rain will overspread the area from southwest to
northeast around or shortly after sunset. Models continue to
indicate that the heaviest rainfall will be focused south of the
area, with a tight precipitation gradient on the northern edge
of the system. With this in mind, lowered QPF amounts for the
entire region. However, any northward adjustment in the track
of the low would bring higher rainfall totals back into the
local area. With precipitable water values expected to be in the
1.5-2 inch range, such a scenario would also increase the
Rain begins to taper off late Saturday morning, although the
weather will remain somewhat unsettled overall as the upper
trough lingers over the area. In addition, wind gusts of 25-35
mph are possible on Saturday as the low passes south of the|
area. With plenty of cloud cover, temperatures during the day on
Saturday will remain below normal, generally in the 70s.
Long term Saturday night through Thursday
An upper trough will remain along the eastern sea board Saturday
night into Tuesday as energy rotates through the trough, and an
upper level jet remains on the eastern side. The trough moves
little as a western atlantic ridge remains in place.
Some uncertainty remains with the forecast Saturday night into
Sunday as the trend has been for the low to track farther south with
the latest model runs. Currently the precipitation will be winding
down Saturday night as the low moves south and east of the region.
Another low is expected to develop across the mid atlantic region
late Sunday night into Monday and also track south and east. Again,
there is uncertainty as to where this low will track. Currently
precipitation will be possible, east of new york city, Sunday night
into Monday night.
The upper trough does weaken Monday night into Tuesday as the flow
until Wednesday night into Thursday when another shortwave rotates
into the northern flow and re amplifies the trough along the coast.
At the surface high pressure builds to the northwest Monday night
and Tuesday, then weakens as a cold front develops in response to
the digging shortwave, and brings a cold front to northwest of the
area during Thursday. Will mention thunder ahead of the cold front
as the area become marginally unstable.
Aviation 15z Friday through Tuesday
Low pressure develops over the central appalachians this
afternoon, tracking to the mid-atlantic coast tonight.
GenerallyVFR through this evening with linger MVFR at long
island terminals through 16z.
Sea breeze beginning to develop along long island and
connecticut coasts. Winds will veer to the SE 10 kt or less this
afternoon, first at kjfk, kisp, kbdr, and kgon, and then
gradually move inland through the afternoon. The sea breeze
will stay south of kswf. Winds back to the NE and diminish this
Timing of onset of -ra and lowering flight categories overnight
continues to remain uncertain.

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.
