Marine Weather and Tides
12/16/2019 NOAA is having trouble with requests that include wind gusts. I am posting graphs without wind gusts until it gets fixed.
10/9/2019 Updated the Marine Zones.
9/4/2019 Fixed the weather maps due to NOAA moving them.
7/25/2019 New feature in the Airports section gives a link to 5 minute updates for data reports.

Short Term. (Today and tonight) Issued at 320 AM EST Thu Jan 23 2020
A Central Plains closed low will move into the Mid Mississippi Valley over the next 24 hours, deepening as it moves closer to the Ohio Valley. Deep SW flow will result in a deeper moisture column as cloud bases gradually lower, creating a gloomy evening for the region. Isentropic ascent ahead of this system will provide enough lift to produce light rain beginning as early as this morning but becoming more widespread by this afternoon. A few counties in southern Indiana (Dubois, Orange, Washington, Crawford and Perry) and north central KY (Hancock) may see a brief period of light rain/snow mix this morning before temperature profiles warm enough to turn any precipitation to all rain. Model soundings show steepening lapse rates later this evening and overnight that will result in moderate rain rates at times. Total rain amounts through Friday morning will range between 0.50 to 1.00 inch. Max temps today are a bit tricky as WAA from southerly flow competes with thickening cloud cover. A blend of the best performing models over the past few weeks shows highs in the mid to high 40s today. Continued cloud cover overnight will help to moderate temperatures with Friday morning lows in the mid to high 30s.
Long Term. (Friday through Wednesday) Issued at 330 AM EST Thu Jan 23 2020
A closed upper low is forecast to rotate northeast over the Lower Ohio Valley Friday and Friday night. The axis of heaviest rain just ahead of the cold front/sfc low will have shifted east to the I-75 corridor by Friday morning, by rain becoming lighter during the second half of the day. CAA gets underway on Friday on SW flow as low pressure wobbles north over Indiana. With abundant cloud cover and precip, highs will be limited to the low to mid 40s.
P-type becomes an issue Friday evening through Saturday, and wrap- around moisture will likely be in the form of a light rain-snow mix. Some brief periods of all snow will be possible, but sfc temps should be warm enough to prevent much in the way of impacts. Light rain/snow showers on Saturday are most likely in southern Indiana and the northern half of Kentucky. Any lingering drizzle or flurries will wind down Saturday night as moisture exits the region.
Sunday through Tuesday of next week looks largely dry with high pressure moving across the region. Temps will be fairly steady in the 30s/40s Sunday and Monday. Some areas in the south will likely reach the 50s by Tuesday. Another weather system brings a chance of rain back to the area on Wednesday.
Aviation. (06Z TAF Issuance) Issued at 1237 AM EST Thu Jan 23 2020
Expect VFR conditions to continue as mid-level clouds gradually lower overnight as a result of deep SSW flow bringing moisture in from the Gulf. Brief window of light rain/snow mix at HNB beginning mid morning before turning to all rain as warm air advection is pumped in from southerly winds. CIGs will continue to lower to MVFR and then sub fuel alternate MVFR through the late afternoon hours with rain becoming more widespread. Rain could be moderate at times resulting in VIS drops to IFR. Otherwise, CIGs will likely lower to IFR overnight at all sites except LEX, which should remain sub fuel alt MVFR.

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.
