AVIATION. With FROPA to our south, VFR conditions currently prevail from PGD northward. TEMPO MVFR cigs will remain possible through at least 08Z before similar VFR deck of BKN040 stratus prevails. Northwest winds will begin to pick up and become gusty by beginning 13Z-14Z, with gusts 20 knots or greater likely. Winds diminish around sunset. Ceilings may break later in the afternoon, but expect stratocu to return overnight. Some uncertainty in coverage/height precludes any mention of category restrictions at this time, but clouds will likely be in the 025-035 range .

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.
