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.

High pressure continues to dominate the weather until late
tonight. Low pressure moves in from the west on Monday and
tracks south of the area. High pressure builds in Wednesday
before the next front approaches Thursday.
Near term through tonight

Short term Monday through Tuesday
Rainy conditions are expected this term, especially downeast.
Low pressure will move to our south on Monday, followed by the
upper trough on Tuesday. Models have trended downward with qpf
amounts for these systems. This is likely due to the amount of
dry air that will need to be overcome, particularly in the north
where high pressure will have the strongest hold. Expect that
much of aroostook county will remain dry a good part of the day
on Monday owing to the high; the bulk of any precipitation will
occur Monday evening into early Tuesday morning. Any lingering
rain will be more showery in nature thereafter, with a drying
trend through the day. Have kept with low chance pops across the
north during this time frame, along with likely pops downeast
and in the greater bangor area, but QPF has been cut back to
match the latest guidance. Daytime highs will remain on the
cooler side, generally in the upper 60s to lower 70s, while
Monday night will see temperatures in the upper 40s to mid 50s.
Long term Tuesday night through Saturday
The middle of the week is looking good with high pressure to
build across the region. We'll see a return to summer-like temps|
as Wednesday tops out around 80 in most spots. The threat for
showers and thunderstorms returns on Thursday and Thursday night
as a cold front crosses the region. The forecast becomes more
uncertain thereafter. The gfs, and to a lesser extent the
canadian, build high pressure right back over new england, with
mainly dry weather for Friday and Saturday, except for a few
showers downeast Friday afternoon. Meanwhile, the ECMWF is much
more extreme, deepening the upper trough and bringing a 995mb
low across central new england Friday into Saturday. This would
mean a cool, wet, and windy weekend. Have gone with chance pops
for this time frame owing to the uncertainty, and stayed close
to a model blend for all other parameters.
Aviation 07z Sunday through Thursday
Near term:VFR next 24 hours with high cirrus likely drifting
thru SRN terminals and potential for few-sctVFR cumulus dvlpng
across the north during the afternoon. Winds out of the NW from
3-8kts drg the day.
Short term:VFR conditions Monday morning will gradually give
way to MVFR in rain at bgr and bhb Monday afternoon and evening.
These conditions will persist through a good part of the night,
then gradual improvement toVFR after 12z tue. The other sites
are expected to remainVFR through the period. Dry weather will
persist 00z Wed to 12z thu, then MVFR will become more likely as
a cold frontal passage brings the threat for showers and
Near term: winds and seas will remain below SCA levels through
the period. Have lowered wna guidance by a foot as it has been
running too high as of late.
Short term: no headlines are anticipated into early next week as both
winds and waves will remain below small craft conditions.

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.
