Discussion Weak high pressure is across east texas while a cold
front has pushed into SE la and mississippi. Weak low pressure is
pushing into central al. Aloft the southern jet continues to
stream from the pacific into the southern states while a short
wave is over the baja region.

A wet and dreary pattern will remain in place through the next
several days with a few breaks sprinkled in. Clouds have cleared
over the NW half of the region today, however this will not last.

The cold front that has pushed into SE la will stall through the
evening then begin to lift back north Thursday morning. Over
running precip is expected to develop and linger through Thursday.

As the short wave over NW mexico SW us moves toward the plains and
a surface low develops the warm front will lift to the north of
the area. A warm and humid Friday is expected, however the surface
low eject NW swinging a cold front back through our region.

A brief break in rain and gray skies is expected Sunday, however
moisture will begin to return again late Monday.

Marine Sea fog will be a concern again Thursday night into
Saturday morning as a warm and moist air mass moves over cooler
waters. A light to moderate northeast flow will become onshore
Thursday night then offshore again early Saturday with a front.

Winds may approach SCA criteria early Sunday as high pressure
builds in and remain elevated through Monday.

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.
