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.

Above average warmth and dry weather will continue through the
weekend, adding to one of the warmest starts to october on
record. The dry spell will end early next week, followed by a
cooler weather pattern leading up to halloween.
Near term through tonight
Big bubble no trouble. Sunny day a good 5f warmer than yesterday
with lighter winds.
Another clear comfortable autumn night.
Short term Thursday through Friday night
A bit warmer still on Thursday. A wave weakens the high a bit
and the gradient is a bit stronger so could be a bit more windy.
But the high builds back in as the wave, well up in canada
passes by. It does drag some slightly cooler air in Thursday
afternoon into early Friday.
But warm air with above normal 850 hpa temperatures is poised to
move in behind the rebuilding high Friday for a warm late-day
Friday and probably a warmer still Saturday.
Enjoy the fine weather is the key here.
Long term Saturday through Tuesday
A strong upper level ridge of high pressure will support above
average temperatures through the weekend. This will further add
to the anomalous october warmth which should help to secure a
spot in the top-10 warmest octobers - if not top 5 or even #1.
Both GFS and ECMWF ensemble systems continue to indicate a
pattern flip by the middle of next week with a period of colder
(near below normal) temperatures starting around october 25th.
The depth and longevity of the emerging upper trough and
subsequent cooler pattern remains in question - so we will have
to wait and see how much of a dent it can put in the strongly|
positive month-to-date departures from climatology.
On the precipitation side, the prolonged dry spell ends early
next week as a cold front moves across the appalachians. Stream
separation differences closed low development in some of the
deterministic models leads to increasing spread and thus
uncertainty in the forecast details such as timing. The gom will
be open for moisture inflow northward ahead of the front. So
will keep continuity and favor MAX pops in the Monday night-
early Tuesday timeframe.
Aviation 16z Wednesday through Sunday
High pressure will dominate our weather through most of this
period. Mostly sunny and minimal clouds during the day. Mostly
clear nights with some patchy fog in low-lying valleys and near
river and other water bodies.
Winds will be light most of the period. A weak front could
increase winds a bit Thursday afternoon and evening.
Big bubble no trouble should be the general rule through Sunday.

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.
