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.

A quiet end to the weekend is expected with just a slight chance
of a sprinkle or flurry. Late Monday into Tuesday brings the
next significant chance of precipitation in the form of a wintry
mix. While not as pronounced as last week's system, with ice
jams in place close monitoring will be needed for the early part
of next week. By mid week colder and more seasonal temperatures
return across the region.
Near term through tonight
As of 322 am est Sunday... Quiet weather continues today with
cooler but still above seasonal normal temperatures and
increasing cloud cover as weak cold front slides south across
the north country before going stationary to our south. As the
front shifts south, associated moisture will bring increased
cloud cover and a chance of a sprinkle or flurry, especially
across the higher terrain, but accumulation will be minimal at
best. Models still show cooling of 3-4c from Saturday which will
lead to high temperatures today in the mid 30s. Sunday night
will continue to be quiet with continuing increased cloud cover
ahead of the next system coming in later in the day Monday.
Overnight lows will continue to seasonably mild with lows in the
mid to lower 20s.
Short term Monday through Tuesday
As of 345 am est Sunday... Active period of weather expected...
especially Monday night into Tuesday. Warm front will lift
northeast into the area late in the day on Monday and lift north
of the area after midnight Monday night. Burst of precipitation
is expected with the warm front and unfortunately it will be a
wide variety of precipitation. Below freezing temperatures will
exist across the saint lawrence valley and areas near the
canadian border in northeast new york as surface northeast winds
hold the cold air in place. The other area that will see below
freezing temperatures will be eastern vermont. Thus as warm nose
aloft moves in Monday night mixed precipitation is expected
over these areas with freezing rain becoming a factor. Potential
for light ice accumulations will exist... Generally a tenth of
an inch or less of ice... But could be higher in northern new
york where cold air holds on the longest. If new data continues
to support this idea a winter weather advisory may be needed.
Warm front lifting north of the region late Monday night will
result in the bulk of the precipitation moving out of the area
and this will help to limit the duration of the mixed precipitation
and icing. The vermont portion of the champlain valley and parts
of the northern adirondacks should see the least amount of mixed
precipitation as warm air moves in and changes precipitation to
On Tuesday eventually everywhere should warm above freezing with
highs in the 40s expected. Cold front will move into the area
and enhance the potential for a burst of steadier rain. Warmer
temperatures and rainfall expected will bring about the need to|
monitor the hydrologic situation given a number of ice jams
across the area. Scenario different than last week... With key
elements not as strong as last week's event... But we will be
Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
As of 345 am est Sunday... Cold front exits the area Tuesday
evening and upper trough moves across the region Tuesday night
into Wednesday. Colder air moves in and sufficient dynamic
support will exist for snow showers across much of the
area... Especially in the mountains. Eventually the upper trough
moves east of the area Wednesday night and region gets into
northwest flow aloft. This will allow for a return of dry
weather and below normal temperatures for the remainder of the
week. The flow aloft will turn to the southwest for the weekend
and a warming trend will take place.
Aviation 12z Sunday through Thursday
Through 12z Monday... A mix ofVFR and MVFR conditions around
the CWA as a weak cold front and associated ribbon of enhanced
moisture moves through the north country. Ceilings will improve
briefly at the valley locations by 19z back toVFR before
dropping back to MVFR after 03z ahead of the next system coming
in Monday evening.
Winds will be light and variable through the period with mss
being the one exception as they will remain locked in NE flow at
05-10 knots for most of the period.
Monday: mainlyVFR, with areas MVFR possible. Definite fzra,
likely ra, chance sn, chance pl.
Monday night: mainly MVFR, with local ifr possible. Likely ra,

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
