Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
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.

Synopsis
Issued at 1150 pm edt Mon jul 16 2018
showers and storms have ended and skies have cleared. Cooler and
drier conditions can be expected through Thursday with highs
around 80 and lows near 55 Tuesday night and Wednesday nights.

Short term (this evening through Tuesday)
issued at 155 pm edt Mon jul 16 2018
pre-frontal trof ahead of the synoptic surface cold front has
triggered convection. Instability south and east of the pre-frontal
boundary is sufficient to support rapid CB development and organized
convective line. Bl shear is low, however with numerous convective
remnant boundaries combined with the rapid convective updrafts has
been favoring brief spin-up funnel clouds. Highest confidence for
low-end severe convective threat will be along the ohio indiana and
michigan ohio borders. After sunset the synoptic front and less
humid air sweep into the region and through the entire forecast area
by early Tuesday morning. This will mark the end of convection and
any significant rainfall until much later in the week.

Long term (Tuesday night through Monday)
issued at 155 pm edt Mon jul 16 2018
cooler and less humid conditions persist Tuesday through Thursday.

Temperatures will actually be a few degrees below normal for the
workweek.

Unfortunately, this also means that rainfall will be nearly non-
existent until late Thursday with more organized and general
rainfall covering the forecast area during late Thursday and spread
eastward Friday. Rain will persist Saturday before gradually ending
Sunday. While it is too early to pinpoint exact amounts and duration
of the rainfall, it does look like it will be enough to put a dent
in the current deficit.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1147 pm edt Mon jul 16 2018
a weak cold front was moving through the area with winds becoming
northwest to north. Have left morning fog out for now, but still a
chance for some MVFR radiation fog basically from 09-13z. Skies
have cleared. Winds will pick up a little with daytime heating and
mixing, especially at sbn. Otherwise, conditions will continue to
beVFR.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
