Marine Weather and Tides
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.
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.

High pressure over central canada extending southeastward through
the great lakes into the northeast, will keep dry and cold
conditions in place across our region this afternoon into the mid
week. Temperatures will continue to be below normal, although winds
will be lighter than the past few days. We will be be watching a
developing storm system track eastward across the southern
appalachians and off the mid atlantic coast Monday night into
Tuesday. Any precipitation from this system is expected to remain
south of our region.
Near term through tonight
As of 1100 am edt... High pressure continues to ridge in from the
north and west with fair, and unseasonably cold weather. The 12z
kaly sounding has a strong subsidence and radiational inversion
to nearly 600 hpa. The strong subsidence will yield mostly sunny
conditions and very low sfc dewpts in the 8 below to 5 above
range. An very dry air mass with the sounding having a pwat of
A weak disturbance will be moving across southern ny and
northern pa late this afternoon. This will result in some
increasing mid level clouds mainly south of albany, although no
precip is expected due to a very dry air mass in place. High
temperatures will be a good 10-15 degrees below normal for this
time of year, making it feel more like january than mid march.
Leftover mid level clouds should gradually dissipate tonight,
as drier air builds southeast across the region. This will set
the stage for another cold night, with single digits and teens
forecast across the area. Continued northerly flow regime, with
the main surface ridge centered over central canada and
extending well south and east into the great lakes and
Short term Monday through Tuesday night
High pressure centered over south-central canada will continue
to influence our weather through Monday, with dry conditions and
cool temperatures persisting. Temperatures will be slightly
warmer than Sunday, but still below normal. Monday night a
progressive but potent disturbance will quickly be moving
eastward across the virginias, while spawning a cyclone near
va nc coast by Tuesday morning. Model guidance generally in good
agreement in keeping any snowfall associated with this system
south of our area. The deterministic 00z GFS and ECMWF continue
to depict this scenario, as well as most of the GEFS members.
On the heels of the system just mentioned, another vigorous
disturbance will be tracking eastward across the southeast u.S.
With another cyclone developing along the coast of the carolinas
late Tuesday into Tuesday night. With a deeper upper level
trough expected over the eastern conus, the coastal cyclone
should track northeastward just off the coast. As with the
Tuesday system, this storm appears as though it will also track
too far away from the coast to bring any precip to our area. We
will continue to monitor trends for any possible shifts in the
expected storm track.
Temperatures will continue to be below normal through Tuesday
night, with a persistent northerly flow across the region.
Long term Wednesday through Saturday
The majority of the 00z deterministic model guidance, as well as
most members of the 00z gefs, agree that an expected coastal storm
will be just far enough south east of the region on Wednesday to
avoid any direct impacts across our area. However, we will need to
watch this closely, as the storm won't have to shift much to bring
snow into our region. For now, will only go with slight chc pops
across southern eastern areas for now for Wed into Wed night.
Otherwise, it appears to remain dry, with a partly to mostly cloudy
sky for Wednesday through Friday, with temperatures still running
below normal across our area. Daytime highs should be in the 30s
(perhaps low 40s in a few southern areas) with overnight lows in the
teens and 20s.
For next weekend, there will be change for a storm system to impact
the region. Both the 00z gfs ECMWF and some 00z GEFS members show a
fast moving low pressure area sliding eastward out of the
mississippi and ohio river valleys towards the mid-atlantic states.|
With a cold airmass in place and our region on the northern side of
this system, p-type would be in the form of snow. With this being so
far out, still some issues regarding exact timing and precip
amounts, but certainly something to watch through the upcoming week.
For now, will go with chc pops for Saturday night into Sunday, with
continued below normal temperatures in place.
Aviation 15z Sunday through Thursday
Vfr conditions are expected to continue through the entire taf
period ending at 12z Monday.
Skies are currently clear over the region, with light to calm
winds in place. There are some clouds seen upstream on goes-16
ir satellite imagery over ontario, so both some passing mid
level and lower levels clouds around 5-6 kft are possible by
late this morning into this afternoon, but conditions should
remainVFR. West-northwest winds will increase during daytime
mixing to around 10 kts, although it won't be as gusty as the
past few days.
Just some lingering sct clouds will continue into this evening
with continuedVFR conditions, with the most clouds remaining
near kpou. Skies will become clear by late tonight for kgfl kalb,
although clouds look to linger for most of the night at
kpsf kpou. Winds will become light to calm once again for
Sunday night through Thursday: no operational impact. No sig
The fire weather season has officially begun across eastern new
york and western new england. Despite this, snow cover is in
place across much of the region, which will mitigate any
potential fire weather hazards for the time being.
A ridge of high pressure over central canada extending
southeastward through the great lakes into the northeast, will
keep dry and cold conditions in place across our region into mid
week. Temperatures will continue to be below normal, although
winds will be lighter than the past few days. We will be be
watching a developing storm system track eastward across the
southern appalachians and off the mid atlantic coast Monday
night into Tuesday. Any precipitation from this system is
expected to remain south of our region.
No hydrologic issues are anticipated through the next week.
A slow diurnal snowmelt is expected over the next several days,
with temperatures above freezing during the day, and below
freezing at night. There will be little impact on the waterways
with minimal, if any, rises.
Multiple storm systems are expected to track too far south of
the region for any appreciable precipitation Tuesday and
Wednesday. However, we will continue to monitor for any possible
northward shift in the track.

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.
