1144 am cst Wed feb 20 2019

Aviation
The back edge of the ovc cloud deck should be exiting the SE cor-
ner of the CWA shortly. This break from lower CIGS vis should be
very brief as most of the short-range models are now calling for
the more rapid return of low-level moisture clouds pops tonight
early thurs morning. And given the slow exit of things today, it
does stand to reason. Tweaked 18z tafs a bit to account for this
trend, which the previous package was already hinting at. 41

Prev discussion issued 1014 am cst Wed feb 20 2019
skies will continue to clear from the west to east through the
rest of the day as high pressure builds in from the west. Cur-
rent grids looks good and no major changes are planned at this

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.
