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 Pittsburgh PA 836 PM EDT Thu Aug 6 2020
SYNOPSIS. A few showers or thunderstorms will be possible in and near the ridges both today and Friday afternoon, with mainly dry weather elsewhere. Mostly dry, warm weather will then prevail for the weekend.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 AM FRIDAY MORNING/. Scattered showers should gradually diminish tonight across the higher terrain of WV and MD as shortwave support decreases and instability wanes. Some patchy fog is possible in this same area where rain occurred earlier. Otherwise, dry weather and patchy mid level clouds are expected across the region tonight. Low temperatures are forecast to be near seasonable levels.
SHORT TERM /6 AM FRIDAY MORNING THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/. Friday's weather will be quite similar to Thursday. Another shortwave trough will rotate around the established broad upper- level troughing across the Great Lakes while low-level/sfc troughing remains in place along the Allegheny Front. Showers/storms will once again initiate near or on the ridges in the afternoon, when shortwave lift timing overlaps with peak diurnal instability. Showers/storms will progress eastward out of the area a bit faster on Friday as upper-level steering becomes more orthogonal to the boundary and the upper-level trough lifts off to the northeast.
Warmer, drier conditions are anticipated for Saturday. Upper-level shortwave ridging in wake of the departing trough will suppress convective activity on Saturday.
As far temperature, Saturday will mark the start of a warming trend as mostly clear skies and increasing heights/thickness leads to temps in the mid 80s for much of the area.
LONG TERM /SUNDAY THROUGH THURSDAY/. Very typical warm, humid summer weather is anticipated Sunday through much of the next work week. Aloft, model consensus shows that the Upper Ohio Valley region will reside on the southern periphery of the northern activity, and on the northern periphery of southeast high pressure.
Sunday and Monday should remain mostly dry and only low-amplitude waves are anticipated to translate through the quasi-zonal mid- and upper-level flow. Both the ECM and GFS prog a deeper trough and attendant cold front passage during the middle of next week. However, long-range ensemble guidance paints a warm, humid picture through, at least, the middle of the month.
AVIATION /00Z FRIDAY THROUGH TUESDAY/. VFR is expected for most ports through the TAF period. A crossing shortwave trough should result in CU cigs on Thu. Isold-sct shra are also possible, but coverage should remain limited enough to preclude a TAF mention. MVFR to IFR fog is expected late tonight/early Thu morning at FKL, MGW and DUJ.
Outlook. Restriction potential returns with a Mon/Tue cold front.
PBZ WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. MD . None. OH . None. PA . None. WV . None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
