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.

117 pm edt Fri may 25 2018
High pressure centered along the east coast will provide a warm,
south flow to the area. A weakening low pressure system and cold
front will dissipate as it crosses the great lakes over the
weekend. Surface high pressure will expand east across the area
Near term through Saturday
No changes for the noon update.
Original near term discussion...
directly under the ridge aloft today while the surface high has
shifted east. The models continue to show a plume of lower level
moisture spreading north up the appalachians and across the ohio
valley. With strong subsidence aloft and no trigger, the end result
will probably be just fair weather cumulus in the southeast counties
from mount vernon to canton and perhaps along the lake breeze
boundary as it develops east of cleveland this afternoon.
Temperatures always over achieve under the ridge and especially this
time of year with the long days high Sun angle. The high temperature
forecast will be at the high end of guidance or above, mostly
in the mid upper 80s except where the winds come onshore along
the east lakeshore.
Winds will be light tonight but many areas will keep a light
south breeze and temperatures will be warmer than recent nights
with lows mostly in the 60s.
On Saturday we will be in the squeeze play. The deeper moisture and
corresponding increase in instability will likely fire off showers
and thunderstorms near and over the appalachians by afternoon. The
approaching trough weak cold front from the west will produce a
scattering of showers and thunderstorms which should push in from
the west. Eventually we will see the activity fill in across
the forecast area. Will use scattered wording for the most part.
Temps should still be warm, maybe a degree or two cooler due to the
clouds and approaching trough.
Short term Saturday night through Monday night
Ongoing showers and thunderstorms Saturday night should wane with
the loss of diurnal heating, with most of the activity confined to
the eastern part of the area with the passage of a weak trough. More
diurnally driven convection is possible Sunday, however a lack of
forcing precludes any pops higher than low chance slight chance
across the southeastern half of the area. A secondary cold front
will slip southeast across the area Sunday night into Monday, a
little faster than previous forecasts. Have opted for some low
chance pops across the area Sunday night, with some of the higher
res guidance more aggressive with development ahead of the front.
Any lingering precip Monday should end fairly quickly, with dry
conditions into Monday night as high pressure builds into the area.
Temperatures will be well above normal, with highs in the upper 80s
to low 90s Sunday and Monday, which is a few degrees higher than|
previous forecast and close to the warmer MOS guidance.
Long term Tuesday through Thursday
The aforementioned cold front will become diffuse and wash out just
south of the area on Tuesday Tuesday night, with ridging quickly
building east across the region. The ridge will be centered over the
mid atlantic coast by Wednesday, with return flow WAA regime across
the area. Attention turns to a potential gulf system moving
northward toward the ohio valley on Wednesday Wednesday night. Model
difference are large with the track intensity of the system, however
medium confidence that some tropical moisture will surge into the
area by the end of the period. Have opted for chance pops Wednesday
night through Thursday to account for this. Temperatures may be a
touch cooler through mid week, but highs still expected to reach the
low mid 80s, possibly upper 80s Tuesday, which is several degrees
above normal for this time of year.
Aviation 18z Friday through Wednesday
High pressure extending west into the ohio valley from the mid
atlantic coast will slowly weaken tonight and into Saturday.
Meanwhile low pressure will continue to drop slowly into the
western great lakes. Ssw flow between the two systems will
eventually result in increased low level moisture across the
region... Mainly on Saturday. For this evening and overnight
expect continuedVFR conditions with mostly clear skies and
light winds. Late tonight expecting mid and higher clouds to
increase from the west as an upper disturbance approaches.
Saturday expecting a much more prevalent cumulus deck with
afternoon and evening scattered thunderstorms. Should be
primarilyVFR on Saturday but expect MVFR ifr restrictions in
Outlook... Non-vfr possible Saturday evening through Sunday.
Quiet conditions continue on the lake today with high pressure
centered west of the great lakes off the mid atlantic coast. Winds
will remain southerly through the weekend, generally 10 kts or less.
A cold front will push south across the lake late Sunday night into
Monday, with winds shifting to northerly by Wednesday night. The
front will wash out south of the region, with high pressure centered
across new england and low pressure moving north out of the gulf of
mexico keeping winds out of the east around 10 kts Tuesday through

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.
