Marine Weather and Tides

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 239 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
high pressure will continue to provide fair weather conditions
into tonight and Friday. Lows tonight will range between the mid
50s and low 60s, with highs on Friday into mid to upper 80s.

Temperatures and humidity will be on the increase in time for the
holiday weekend. Highs each day will range between the mid 80s and
low 90s. There is a low chance for showers and thunderstorms
Friday night into Saturday. Mainly dry conditions are expected
otherwise into early next week.

Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 239 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
stable dry airmass on the western fringe of a low level ridge axis
will ensure more fair wx into tonight and Friday. Temperatures will
continue to trend warmer as sfc winds veer more southwesterly on
Friday.

Long term (Friday night through Thursday)
issued at 239 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
the holiday weekend will feature unseasonably humid hot temps and
low chances for storms mainly Saturday...

a mid level trough and associated 30-40 meter height falls at 500 mb
will work east through the region Friday night into Saturday. This
feature will fold higher theta-e air and a subtle sfc trough in
bringing clouds and chances for showers storms back into the
forecast during this time. Overall weak deep layer forcing flow
continues to support low pops (generally 20-30%) during this
time... Best chances Saturday afternoon along east of i-69 tied to
diurnal heating cycle. Sunday and Monday should feature dry hot
conditions as upper ridging becomes re-established over the great
lakes region. Northern stream westerlies will then finally ingest
deeper moisture (from a deep south upper low) north by mid-week
bringing renewed shower storm chances wed-thu.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening)
issued at 705 pm edt Thu may 24 2018
vfr through the period once again for both TAF sites. Latest surface
analysis has ridge axis east of our area bringing calm to light
southeast winds for this evening. High pressure moves off into the
atlantic placing our region on backside return flow with winds
becoming S SW during the day Friday but still less than 10kts.

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.
