A frontal passage with a band of showers and thunderstorms will be
the main weather feature impacting the terminals. It looks like
the band of showers and thunderstorms will impact the terminals
primarily from 09z to around 13z at kbtr and kmcb... From 11z to
15z at khum, kmsy, knew, khdc, and kasd, and from 12z to 16z at
kgpt. Prevailing MVFR and ifr ceilings and visibilities can be
expected as this band of precipitation moves through. Some gusty
winds could also occur with any thunderstorms. After the band of
convection moves through, gradually improving conditions are
expected from 15 to 16z through the afternoon hours and evening
hours.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
