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.

AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Wilmington OH 148 PM EDT Mon Jul 6 2020
SYNOPSIS. Above normal temperatures and building humidity will provide a chance for afternoon and evening storms through the work week. A frontal system pushing through the Ohio Valley late Friday into Saturday will return temperatures to near normal for the weekend.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. Convection on the south and west side of the Cinci metro continues to bubble, so upped PoPs for the next few hours to categorical. Latest mesoscale model runs are showing this convection dissipating in the next hour or so, then during the afternoon, things re-fire in the heat of the day. Best coverage in the southern half of the of the fa.
Highs in the lower to mid 90s again this afternoon. Heat indices could tickle 95-98 degrees this afternoon. This is already covered by an SPS.
SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM TUESDAY/. After a slow decrease in the convection this evening, there will be another quiet, muggy night in store. By Tuesday, higher moisture content air will reach into the rest of the forecast area by afternoon hours, so expecting region-wide scattered convection during the mid-afternoon through evening hours. Continued light flow at steering levels will lead to slow motion on the storms, so expecting locally heavy rain as PWATs hover around 1.75 inches. Once again, heat will be a concern before convection gets going in the afternoon, so will need to monitor for potential heat advisory issuance.
LONG TERM /TUESDAY NIGHT THROUGH SUNDAY/. Mid and upper level ridging will remain in place across the region through Thursday. This will lead to a continuation of above normal temperatures with daytime highs Wednesday and Thursday in the low to mid 90s. With the daytime heating, scattered diurnal convection will develop through the afternoon hours both days, before decreasing in coverage during the evening hours.
The ridge will break down late in the work week as short wave energy moves across the Great Lakes and a mid/upper level trough then develops across the eastern CONUS through the weekend. An associated cold front will push southeast across the upper Ohio Valley Friday into Saturday, leading to a somewhat better chance of showers and thunderstorms as we head into the weekend. Highs on Friday will be in the low 90s, cooling to highs in the mid to upper 80s for Saturday. With the upper level trough still in place across the region, will continue with chance pops on Sunday. Highs on Sunday will be in the mid 80s.
AVIATION /18Z MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY/. Convection has developed along the outflow boundary from the morning convection near CVG. Convection i running from near AXV to I74 to ne of ILN. Atmosphere east of the boundary is uncapped and we should see additional convection develop as the afternoon goes on. Back towards CVG/LUK it might take a couple of hours before convective temp is reached as they are running behind due to the leftover cloud cover from early convection.
Any convection that gets going should be diurnally driven and will begin to weaken after 00Z. Due to the uncapped nature of the atmosphere, can't rule out something lingering past midnight.
Due to the high dewpoints and heavy rains near CVG/LUK, added a mention of fog overnight. It should lift by 13Z.
Tuesday should be another repeat of today, with diurnal cu and convection developing.
OUTLOOK . Thunderstorms are possible Tuesday through Saturday.

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.
