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.

922 pm edt Fri jun 22 2018
A storm system will move from the ohio valley tonight towards
the northeast for tomorrow, bringing on and off rain showers and
isolated thunderstorms to the region, along with cloudy skies
and cool temperatures. Although this storm will move out for
Sunday, another cold front will keep the threat of showers and
thunderstorms around, mainly for Sunday afternoon. Drier weather
is expected for the start of next week, with temperatures
moderating above normal through the week.
Near term until 6 am Saturday morning
As of 920 pm edt... Closed off upper level low is located over
western indiana and is starting to slowly shift eastward
towards our area. Ahead of this feature, swirling bands of high
clouds have been moving across our area. Some lower and thicker
clouds are finally starting to make progress towards our area
from pennsylvania and new jersey, as low level warm advection
increases thanks to a stregthening low-level jet.
Clouds look to increase and become thicker from south to north
through the evening hours, but it should stay precip-free
through about midnight. Afterward, hi-res model guidance (such
as the 3km hrrr and namnest) suggest spotty areas of light rain
and showers will be lifting from southwest to northeast thanks
to isentropic lift in place. These showers look to be mainly
from i-90 on southward, but some locations may see the ground
wet by daybreak Saturday.
With the clouds and showers around, temps won't be as cool as
the past few nights, with lows mainly in the mid to upper 50s.
Short term 6 am Saturday morning through Sunday night
During the day Saturday, the upper level low will be lifting
towards the northeast. However, it will be opening up and
weakening as moves within the southwest flow aft and runs into
ridging in place. The surface low pressure area will also be
weakening as it moves towards western new york, although a
secondary area of low pressure looks to be developing across the
mid-atlantic states along the storm's warm front. With this
setup in place, our area will remain on the northerly and cooler
side of the storm system, with the light low-level flow out of
Showers will continue to increase in coverage through the
day. Although it won't be raining the entire day, it will be on
and off and models still disagree on which areas will see the
highest concentration of showers. Most of the precip looks
fairly light, although cannot rule out some moderate bursts from
time to time. There could be a rumble of thunder, but any
instability will be elevated due to the strong inversion around
850 hpa and no storms will be strong severe.
With the clouds and showers around, temps will only MAX out in
the 60s across the region, with even some upper 50s for the
adirondacks and greens.
On Saturday night, the secondary low pressure area will be
taking over as it lifts towards eastern new england. As a
result, showers look to diminish in coverage, although still
can't rule one out. It will stay cloudy and damp and with the
recent rainfall, there will probably be a lot of fog and low
clouds remaining in place through the overnight hours with lows
in the upper 50s to low 60s.
On Sunday, the next system will quickly be approaching from the
northwest, as another shortwave and surface cold front moves in
from the great lakes. Another round of showers look to occur
with this boundary, mainly for the afternoon and early evening
hours. With some breaks of Sun expected ahead of the front,
there could be some surface-based instability and some thunder
will be around as well, especially by late in the day, as the
approaching shortwave allows for better height falls and a more
favorable setup for thunderstorms. Pwats will remain fairly
high, so any thunderstorm will be capable of heavy downpours,
but weak lapse rates and limited 0-6 km shear should prevent any
storms from getting too tall or strong. With some sunshine,
highs should reach into the 70s, with even some low 80s for far
Showers and any thunderstorms will quickly diminish on Sunday
evening with the passage of the cold front and it should start
drying out for Sunday night. Lows will be in the 50s to low 60s
with decreasing dewpoints a light northwesterly breeze.
Long term Monday through Friday
The long term forecast period will begin with a low pressure system
departing to our east with some lingering showers possible primarily
over western new england. High pressure will build in mid week with
a low pressure system approaching from the west during the mid-to-
late week time period.
Monday and Tuesday... As a low pressure system departs to our east
and cyclonic flow overhead, there will be a slight chance for some
lingering rain showers over the region with higher confidence over
the new england zones. Strong upper ridging and surface high
pressure will build in from the northwest on Tuesday and linger into
Wednesday. Warm temps in the upper 70s to low 80s and sunny
conditions will accompany the high pressure. How strong and how much
blocking the aforementioned high provides will be a key player in the
timing of the approaching front on Wednesday into Thursday.
Wednesday through Friday... Clouds will increase on Wednesday with an
approaching shortwave and associated low over the great lakes. The
associated cold front looks to progress through the region somewhere
in the late Wednesday into early Thursday time period. The timing
will be crucial for thunderstorm potential and for now looks
unfavorable with an overnight passage as suggested by the GFS (the
ecmwf being even slower). With the low approaching and a strong high
off the east coast there will be a good pressure gradient and low
level jet in place as well. This system will have to be monitored
as we approach mid next week.
As the system departs to our east conditions should start to dry
out late Thursday or early Friday as some weak mid-level height
rises push into the region. Global guidance is suggesting some
atlantic moisture advecting northward into the region with southerly
flow and possibly a weak boundary moving through the region on
Friday so have kept slight chance to chance pops in the forecast for
now. The southerly southwesterly flow will like usher in some
unseasonably warm temperature into the mid to upper 80s by the end
of the week.
Aviation 01z Saturday through Wednesday
High pressure exiting east and a frontal system approaching from the
west. Mid and high clouds are spreading northeast through tonight.
The leading edge of showers will move into the kpou area before
sunrise Saturday and by mid morning at kalb, kpsf and kgfl.
Including visibilities around 6sm by 07z at kpou and by 15z to
18z at kalb, kgfl and kpsf. Steadier showers could begin at
kpou by 15z but will take until midday or early afternoon at
kalb, kgfl and kpsf. Ceilings will drop to 1500 feet at kpou
and will likely stay between 2500 and 3000 feet at kalb, kgfl
Winds will be light and variable at 6 kts or less tonight then
east to southeast at 5 to 8 kts on Saturday.
Saturday night: high operational impact. Likely shra... Fg... Tsra.
Sunday: high operational impact. Likely shra... Tsra.
Sunday night: moderate operational impact. Chance of shra.
Monday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shra.
Monday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.
Tuesday: no operational impact. No sig wx.
Tuesday night: no operational impact. No sig wx.
Wednesday: low operational impact. Slight chance of shra... Tsra.
Cloudy and damp conditions are expected over the weekend as an
area of low pressure moves across the region for Saturday and a
cold front moves through for Sunday. Rh values will only fall as
low as 60 to 75 percent on both Saturday and Sunday. Most of the
region should see in excess of a quarter inch of rainfall, with
totals generally between one half inch and one inch of rain by
Sunday evening. East to southeast winds will be 5 to 10 mph on
Saturday and will be switching to the west to southwest at 5 to
10 mph on Sunday.
No hydro problems are expected over weekend and into next week.
Most of the entire hydro service area hsa is under abnormally
dry conditions according to the latest us drought monitor.
As a storm system moves across the region, periods of showers
and a few thunderstorms are expected between late tonight and
Sunday evening. Basin average rainfall amounts are expected to
range between half an inch to an inch, though locally higher
amounts are possible with any thunderstorms.
Minimal rises are expected on the waterways. Dry weather
returns Monday afternoon into the midweek before another cold
front moves across the region for Wednesday into Thursday with
some scattered showers or thunderstorms.

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.
