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.

713 pm edt Wed aug 23 2017
Noticeably cooler and drier conditions will be felt across the
region through the weekend. West to northwesterly flow in the
low and middle levels of the atmosphere will keep the cool and
dry air reinforced through the weekend. Weak upper level
disturbances will move through the region and generate isolated
light rainshowers, but most of the area will remain dry.
Temperatures will be near to a bit below their seasonal normals.
Near term until 8 am Thursday morning
As of 657 pm edt Wednesday... No significant changes to the
forecast. Had some gusty showers move quickly thru the champlain
valley around 22z, producing a gust to 29kt at btv. That
activity is generally dissipating across n-central vt at 23z.
There is one more line of shower activity across the st.
Lawrence valley, and have made some minor adjustments to pops to
account for brief showers next 1-3 hours mainly across far nrn
ny. This activity should also diminish with loss of surface
heating steep low-level lapse rates. Otherwise a cool and dry
overnight period expected. Enough of a surface pressure
gradient to keep westerly low level flow and prevent decoupling
and ideal radiational cooling, with lows mainly in the 50s. The
usual cooler pockets should see mins dip into the 40s.
Short term 8 am Thursday morning through Friday night
As of 401 pm edt Wednesday... 500 mb trough remains over the
northeast during this period with periodic shortwave troughs
rotating through. In particular one late Thursday will increase
clouds, however moisture remains too limited for anything other
than slight chance for showers in the higher terrain. Otherwise
dry. Low heights associated with upper trough and overall west
to northwest flow will reinforce cool temps and dry humidity.
Temps to average a couple degrees below normal but still
Long term Saturday through Wednesday |
As of 401 pm edt Wednesday... Models show one more shortwave
translating through the trough Saturday night before the trough
finally moves east and upper level riding enters the region. At
the surface, northerly flow will become southerly. At this point
the long term forecast looks predominantly dry. Temperatures
will also continue to be seasonal through the period.
Aviation 23z Wednesday through Monday
Through 18z Thursday... Last weak line of energy brings a
slight chances of showers next couple of hours for the ny taf
sites before loss of daytime heating ends the activity. MVFR
cigs expected at kslk overnight, though mpv isn't out of the
question either. OtherwiseVFR conditions will dominate the taf

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.
