627 pm cdt Tue oct 17 2017

Aviation An extremely dry airmass overhead on a deep northerly
flow will maintain clear skies.VFR ahead while winds remain
light.

Prev discussion issued 342 pm cdt Tue oct 17 2017
discussion... High pressure is stretched from south texas to new
england this afternoon. A very dry air mass over the local
region has moved in over the past day or two with pwats generally
around or less than a third of an inch.

Through the end of the week the flow will gradually become more
southerly which will increase moisture and temperatures. This will
occur as a result of the surface ridge shifting east and low
pressure moving across the northern plains. High pressure aloft
will also shift east of the area Thursday night Friday morning to
allow rain chances to increase by Friday.

Late Saturday into Sunday a vigorous short wave will move across
the region. Scattered to numerous showers and storms can be
expected. A modest cool down may occur early next week behind the
associated cold front that will pass Sunday.

Marine... A modest east flow will occur across the coastal waters
through the end of the week as an area of high pressure moves to
the east. Winds will become more onshore Saturday ahead of a
front, but become offshore during Sunday.

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.
