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 634 AM EST Sun Jan 26 2020
SYNOPSIS. Gloomy conditions with clouds and areas of drizzle will affect the region for the next few days as no major systems affect the area.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. The H5 low which affected the region yesterday is working its way through the lower Great Lakes. Deeper moisture and lift has been shifting east overnight, leaving saturated low levels. Without ice nucleation, some patchy drizzle/freezing drizzle has developed. Expect the area to gradually work east of the region shortly after sunrise.
Northwest flow will affect the region today. A weak disturbance in the flow will pass south of the region. Forecast area will be cloudy for much of the day, but with the passage of the disturbance this afternoon, southern areas could see some peaks of sun as the clouds get some breaks.
Highs today will range from the mid 30s in West Central Ohio to the lower 40s in nrn KY.
SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM MONDAY/. Tonight the region will be between major systems but the flow aloft will bring weak shortwaves through the flow. Low level moisture will fill back into the region overnight. Without deep moisture or lift over the region tonight, there will be a chance of drizzle. Temperatures are forecast to drop below freezing, so some freezing drizzle is also possible. Will throw a mention in the HWO.
Drizzle should break up after 12Z Monday with daytime heating and the passage of a more defined s/w in the northern stream. Temperatures will rebound to the mid 30s to lower 40s.
LONG TERM /MONDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY/. Much of the long term period is featured by low precipitation chances and temperatures a few degrees above climatological normals. Important to note that nighttime low temperatures below freezing and stubborn low level moisture could lead slick spots during the morning commutes over the first few days of the period.
Starting Monday night, low level moisture is still present across the region keeping conditions cloudy. Given this setup, can't rule out scattered flurries into Tuesday morning with temperatures a few degrees below freezing. Despite weak high pressure nosing in from the west, a subtle mid-level shortwave moving through the Great Lakes is going to supply another period of weak lift, leading to increased potential for flurries Tuesday evening and into Wednesday. Another shortwave moves through on Wednesday with a better chance for accumulating precipitation Wednesday afternoon and evening, however, overall accumulations are expected to be light. Based on forecast soundings, best chance for light snow accumulations will be from the Ohio River northward. Shortwave quickly moves eastward Wednesday night, with cloud cover remaining. Could see slick spots developing during the nighttime hours as temperatures cool from the mid to upper 30s into the upper 20s.
Looking toward the end of the week and into the weekend, confidence continues to be low on the overall expectations for the next weather system Friday into Saturday. Once again, deterministic CMC, GFS, and ECMWF are all different with the timing/phasing of several upper level shortwaves traversing CONUS. As a result, will only carry slight chance PoPs to conclude the forecast period.
Temperatures throughout the long-term period average about 5 degrees above normal with high temperatures in the mid 30s to lower 40s and low temperatures a few degrees below freezing. Once again, while no major impacts are expected at this time throughout the week, early morning temperatures a few degrees below freezing could lead to slick spots during the morning commutes.
AVIATION /11Z SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Upper low continues to eject out through the St. Lawrence Valley this morning. Area of drizzle/freezing drizzle from DAY over to CMH continues to work east. Expect it to work east of the tafs by 14Z. An area of pcpn containing of dz/fzdz/sb has moved in from central Indiana and may affect ILN early in the period.
Embedded energy in the west/northwest flow aloft, along with some weak lift, will keep low clouds over the region today. IFR/MVFR ceilings should lift to all MVFR by afternoon. A slightly stronger disturbance will pass south of the region. This energy looks like it will bring VFR ceilings to CVG/LUK by late afternoon and into early evening.
Low level moisture will remain trapped over the region tonight, and will reestablish itself as IFR/MVFR ceilings overnight. Patchy drizzle/freezing drizzle will also be a possibility for the later part of tonight.
OUTLOOK . MVFR ceilings may persist at times through Wednesday.

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.
