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.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 220 am cdt Fri jul 28 2017
surface high pressure will be centered over lake superior today
and tonight, keeping the forecast area in light northeast near
surface flow. Based on latest upstream satellite observations and
model soundings, could see periodic cumulus through the day, but
mostly sunny skies will be the rule. 925 hpa temperatures by 00z
tonight are around 1-2 degrees celsius lower than yesterday, so
afternoon highs should be a few degrees cooler, topping out in the
upper 70s to lower 80s. Combined with dewpoints in the 50s, today
will be quite comfortable.
Mostly clear skies and light variable wind tonight should lend
itself to possible fog development, especially in river valleys
and the cranberry bogs of west central wi. Lows will drop into the
lower to mid 50s.
Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 220 am cdt Fri jul 28 2017
with weak northwest flow aloft and persistent surface high
pressure, Saturday through Monday will be dry and pleasant. Could
see a little more cloud cover on Sunday with the passage of a weak
short-wave aloft. Otherwise, partly to mostly sunny conditions
will continue. Primary weather impact will be the potential for
morning valley bog fog each day. GFS nam soundings are in good
agreement showing light winds (10 kts or less) up to 5-6 km each
morning. Skies also expected to be mostly clear. Potential limiting
factors will be degree of near surface saturation and the fact
that nights are still relatively short, but added patchy fog|
through Monday morning. Daily highs will be in the upper 70s to
lower 80s with lows mainly in the 50s to near 60 degrees.
Tuesday and Wednesday, a stronger 500 hpa closed low will move
across the hudson bay area with a trailing cold front across the
upper midwest. This will result in a chance for showers and storms
mid-week. Not overly impressed with available forcing per 500 to
300 hpa potential vorticity advection progs, but pwats do rise
to around 1.5 inches, so chance pops seem reasonable at this
time. While instability does increase with dewpoints back into the
60s, weaker shear should preclude severe storms.
High pressure builds back across the region for Thursday with a
return to dry weather. Expect highs in the upper 70s lower 80s
to end the work week.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Saturday morning)
issued at 556 am cdt Fri jul 28 2017
high pressure will provideVFR conditions today. However, we may
need to watch for some fog and stratus early this morning and
Saturday morning at klse which may temporarily reduce conditions
into ifr lifr.

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.
