1121 pm cst Mon dec 17 2018

Aviation An area of fog and low ceilings has developed in the
last few hours over the western third of the forecast area. This
fog should continue to spread east over the coming hours, and
expect to see all of the terminals except kgpt experiencing ifr
and even lifr conditions by 11z. Visibilities and ceilings will be
lowest at kbtr, khum, khdc, and kmsy this morning. As daytime
heating and boundary layer mixing increases between 14z and 16z,
conditions should improve rapidly at these terminals, and a return
toVFR conditions is expected through the evening hours. Tomorrow
night by 06z, another round of fog could develop over northern and
eastern portions of the forecast area. Kasd, kgpt, kmcb, and khdc
would be most impacted if this fog develops. 32

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.
