631 am est Fri jan 19 2018

Aviation [through 12z Saturday]
Ifr visibilities in smoke continue at tlh this morning.

Restrictions should dissipate quickly after sunrise. Otherwise,
vfr under mostly clear skies with light winds will prevail at all
terminals through the taf.

Prev discussion [251 am est]
Near term [through today]
Zonal flow aloft will turn a bit more southwesterly as an area of
+pv begins to consolidate over the west-central gulf. The effect of
this will be to gradually spread more moisture into the region
aloft, resulting in some scattered high clouds later this afternoon.

At the surface, light winds are expected today as the ridge center
sits directly overhead. Highs are forecast to climb into the mid to
upper 50s, still below normal for this time of year.

Short term [tonight through Sunday]
In the upper levels slight ridging will be over the region on
Saturday. A shortwave trough will move through on Sunday. At the
surface high pressure will be over the southeast on Saturday. A weak
disturbance off the western florida coast will move into central
florida on Sunday. Pops will be near zero this weekend. Expect
mostly sunny clear skies. Temps will be warmer with lows in the 30s.

Highs will be in the low to mid 60s on Saturday and near 70 on
Sunday.

Long term [Sunday night through Friday]
In the upper levels a closed low moves through the midwest on Monday
and Tuesday. At the surface a low moving through the midwest on
Monday and Tuesday will drag a cold front through the region on
Monday night. High pressure will likely be over the southeast for
the remainder of the week. The best chance for rain will be in
southeast alabama and the florida panhandle on Monday afternoon and
evening. A few claps of thunder will be possible but organized
thunderstorm activity is not likely due to low instability. Lows will
be mainly in the 40s. Highs will be in the lower 70s on Monday.

Highs will be in the 60s for the rest of the week.

Marine
Light northeasterly winds will become moderate and southerly on
Monday. Strong northerly winds will move in late Monday night as a
cold front moves through. The best chance for rain will be Monday
and Monday night.

Fire weather
Aside from low dispersion indices, hazardous fire weather conditions
are not expected over the next several days as a gradual moistening
trend is forecast.

Hydrology
River levels are low. The next chance for rain will be on Monday
night. Less than an inch of rain is forecast over the next seven
days. No flooding concerns.

Spotter information statement
Spotter activation is not requested. However, spotters are always

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.
