Discussion
Very dry/stable airmass overhead in the wake of Monday's cold front.

The 00z kxmr/ktbw RAOB soundings measured a 30-35c subsidence
inversion in the h85-h70 lyr with pwat values in the 0.50"-0.75"
inch range, while latest rap40 analysis indicating h85-h50 dewpoint
depressions arnd 40c. Zero pops overnight.

Lcl wind profilers show s/sw winds arnd 15kts thru 10kft which
should prevent full decoupling acrs the area overnight. Even so,
winds blo 5mph in the predawn hrs coupled with clear skies will
produce good radiational cooling conditions. Sfc dewpoints in the
l/m50s interior and u50s/l60s along the coast suggest similar min
temps overnight.

Aftn fcst package in good shape... No updates necessary this evng.

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.
