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.

Develop low pressure system will produce widespread accumulating
snow across new york and pennsylvania today and tonight. Quiet
weather is expected into the weekend with gradually warming
Near term through Wednesday
350 am update...
main concern in the near term is focused around the incoming winter
storm expected to produce widespread accumulating snow across
central ny and NE pa today into Wednesday morning.
The winter weather advisory for snow has been expanded another tier
of counties west... To include ithaca, utica, and elmira.
The primary changes made to the forecast include a broader area of 3
to 5 inches of snow... Aligned with the expansion of the advisory,
and also a slight increase in snow amounts to the east... Especially
in the higher terrain locations.
A positively tilted, deep cold upper trough pushing through the great
lakes and into the ohio valley this morning is the primary forcing
mechanism for widespread snow in ny and pa. The combination of
strong upper forcing from a 140kt jet ahead of the trough... A modest
push of moisture from the south in front of the system and an
enhanced layer of mid level f-gen is will create favorable
conditions for continuous snow across the region today and into
tonight. The system is fairly slow-moving, so this will allow for a
longer period of accumulation.
The time when the heaviest snow is expected to fall is this
afternoon and evening when the low levels become most unstable and
also the thermal packing in the mid levels enhances the ne-sw
oriented 700mb f-gen band, which will increase snow production and
push snowfall rates into the 0.5 to 1" per hour rate range.
Total snowfall should range from 6 to 8 inches in the srn
catskills and a good portion of NE pa... Including the poconos.
Higher amounts close to 9 inches are not out of the question in
the higher terrain locations. Snow will range from 3 to 6
inches further to the west... Including binghamton, utica,
ithaca, cooperstown, elmira.
A weak surface low forms off the jersey coast later tonight ahead of
the upper trough and lifts quickly to the NE by Wed morning. This
enhancement will likely trigger a bit more snow in the srn
catskills and the poconos after midnight tonight than previously
expected. So, as mentioned above, have increased snow amts in
this area. Also... May need to extend the advisory beyond 5 am
Otherwise, the snow should taper off during the morning hours
Wednesday as the best forcing shifts east NE and weak ridging aloft
builds in behind the system. There may be a period of light lake
effect snow in oneida county into Wed afternoon, but inversion
heights around 5000 ft and a decent amt of dry air advecting in with
winds out of the west should limit snowfall to less than 1 inch.
Temperatures will be fairly mild today with highs topping out in the
upper 20s. Lows tonight will fall back into the lower teens in the
west and upper teens lower 20s east. Highs Wednesday will rise into
the upper teens and lower 20s.
Short term Wednesday night through Thursday night
2 am update...
brief shot of cold air this period with a broad upper level trough|
over the northeast us. The low level flow is 280 so most of the snow
showers will be across the far north with the best accumulations in
the tug hill plateau of northern oneida county. Snow amounts will
not be significant. Moisture remains shallow with 850mb temperatures
not enough to create much lift. A short wave GOES through Thursday
evening providing some enhancement.
Temperatures not too far from average. Only a little low. Highs mid
20s in the higher terrain of the east to around 30 chemung valley to
nepa. Thursday night lows in the teens.
Long term Friday through Monday
2 am update...
Friday lake effect snow continues across the far north. Expected to
end late in the day. Seasonable temperatures with high in the low
30s. Friday night dry with lows in the 20s. Warming trend as flow
shifts to the southwest.
Models similar in handling the next big system. A warm front lifts
through Sunday night followed by a cold front late Monday. The
strong surface low lifts northeast through the western great lakes.
This weekend with and ahead of the warm front will be light rain
showers and some snow showers mostly for central ny. High
temperatures in the 40s Monday so precipitation will be all rain,
but could end as snow Monday night. For now progressive with an inch
or less of rain. Most of the snow will melt and run off. This rain
and snow melt will rise rivers again. Could still be a problem with
ice jams in the rivers and rivers higher now from last weekends
Aviation 12z Tuesday through Saturday
MVFR toVFR ceilings this morning with occasional ifr vsbys in
light snow. Conditions will deteriorate by late morning and
especially the afternoon as the heavier snow develops.
The lowest restrictions... Below ifr... Are still expected at
kbgm, kith, kavp, and krme. The snow will be somewhat lighter at
kelm and ksyr, mostly MVFR to ifr. The snow may be heavy at
times between 16z and 02z. The snow will taper off west to east
after 06z tonight with conditions slowly improving but light
snow continuing at kbgm and kavp at least until 12z.
S-se winds 5-10 kt this morning and afternoon, will switch to
the NW after 03z at ksyr, kith, kelm... And after 07z at krme,
kbgm and kavp.
Wednesday... Flight restrictions in lake effect snow possible at
krme, withVFR conditions elsewhere.
Friday... GenerallyVFR conditions expected. Some localized
restrictions in snow showers possible.
