update...

high pressure in southern la... And sprawling across the gulf of
mexico... Eases eastward today with northwesterly low level flow
shifting to northerly during the day, this shift in the winds
will bring some drier air which along with limited day time
heating will allow the early morning cloudiness to lift and mix
out... With skies clearing. Despite the clear skies cold air
advection continues with highs in the upper 50s for the nature
coast and in the 60s elsewhere. While the winds are shifting the
waves and swells will continue to create a high risk of rip
currents through this evening.

The high pressure will almost be directly to our north
tonight... Keeping skies clear and permitting winds to become
light. A perfect recipe for radiational cooling. Lows range from
the 30s in the far north to 40s in the far south... With frost
expected for much of the interior. This will be mainly patchy
except for the nature coast where areas-widespread frost will
support a frost advisory later tonight.

Marine...

winds are slowly diminishing although some gulf waters continue
with exercise cation conditions this afternoon. Winds begin to
veer and slacken tonight with benign winds and seas for the next
couple of days. A cold front approaching toward the end of the
week will increase winds and bring thunderstorms.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
