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 426 AM EDT Wed Apr 8 2020
SYNOPSIS. Thunderstorms developing this morning along a cold front will move southeast by this afternoon. Another round of showers and thunderstorms is expected tonight when the next cold front is forecast to sweep through from the west. Much cooler conditions and a few showers will follow for Thursday and Friday.
NEAR TERM /UNTIL 6 PM THIS EVENING/. We have a cold front positioned near I-70 early this morning. Thunderstorms continue to develop near the front, with the front moving slowly being aligned nearly parallel to the mid level flow. Still have a portion of severe thunderstorm watch 85 in effect until 6am, and several warnings have been issued, with isolated large hail and 50+ mph gusts accompanying some thunderstorms.
Thunderstorms should continue for a few more hours, being sustained by a persistently unstable airmass, divergence aloft, and low level wind convergence. Along with more large hail and strong wind gusts, localized flooding will be possible where cells are training near the front. Expect the front to gradually move southeast out of our area, resulting in a dry interlude by mid afternoon.
With the airmass surrounding the front remaining rather warm, temperatures should rise to the upper 60s to mid 70s this afternoon.
SHORT TERM /6 PM THIS EVENING THROUGH 6 PM THURSDAY/. Next cold front will be moving in from the west tonight, pushed by a strong jet stream at the base of a deep upper trough. Showers and thunderstorms accompanying the cold front are forecast to sweep across the FA, with severe weather possible again under favorable instability (CAPE ~2000 J/KG) and winds aloft. Thunderstorms will end Thursday as more stable air and shallower moisture arrive behind the front, leaving a few showers.
Brisk northwest winds with gusts to 30 knots will bring cold advection Thursday, with much cooler temps reaching the mid 40s northwest up to the mid 50s southeast.
LONG TERM /THURSDAY NIGHT THROUGH TUESDAY/. Region finds itself in strong northwest flow as a deep closed H5 low is centered north of the eastern Great Lakes. A sheared s/w swings down across the region Thursday night. Models are kicking off light showers with this feature, so added PoPs. Thicknesses will be cold enough for snow to mix in by morning.
Surface high pressure will build east into the region Friday into Friday night. Highs on Friday will generally be in the 40s. Lows Friday night will be in the lower 30s and with lighter winds, it looks like a chance of some frost.
Focus shifts to H5 s/w lifting out of the souther Rockies on Saturday. It looks like Saturday may stay dry as the storm organizes. Extended models are showing differences with the ejection of the system. The 00Z GFS has a little more energy in the northern stream which causes the surface low to develop north into the Upper MS Valley. The ECMWF and CMC focus more on the southern stream energy. Leaned more towards the ECMWF solution, which will bring showers and thunderstorms Sunday into Sunday night.
The system pulls east on Monday leaving the region under cold advection northwest flow again. A few showers could linger Monday into Monday night. High pressure tries to build in Tuesday.
AVIATION /08Z WEDNESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY/. Aviation will be affected by thunderstorms along a cold front. DAY may see a 36 knot gust within an hour. Other sites could see similar gusts if storms hit TAF sites. Wind shear is predicted at all sites early in the forecast under a potent 925mb wind flow. MVFR ceilings and visibilities will be possible during thunderstorms.
A lull in convection should be observed this afternoon following the cold front. Thunderstorms and gusty winds are forecast to return late in the forecast as another cold front moves in.
OUTLOOK . MVFR conditions are possible Thursday morning.

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.
