Discussion A surface ridge remains stretched from the atlantic
into the northern gulf coast this morning. This is keeping the hot
and moist flow off the gulf in place. Aloft the region is under a
weakness between two ridges to the east and west, however a
slightly drier air mass has moved in aloft.

Today a decrease in rain chances is expected as the slightly drier
air mass and ridging builds in aloft, however with ridge not
firmly in control, isolated to scattered storms are still
expected. Unfortunately, with a decrease in rain chances comes an
increase in temperatures. Highs today will generally be in the mid
90s away from the coast. These temperatures combined with the very
moist dewpoints in the upper 70s will create apparent temps in the
105 to 110 range. Criteria for a heat adv is 108, so the advisory
is in effect through 7 pm.

Friday guidance indicates a slight decrease in dewpoints as mixing
knocks off a degree or two. This may hold a portion or all of the
area just below heat adv criteria, but just barely with forecast
apparent temps still ranging from 103-108.

This weekend moisture will increase aloft with pwats climbing
north of 2". This will increase rain chances and cloud cover into
next week. This will also decrease high temperatures a degree or
two.

Marine The sub-tropical ridge will remain to the east of the
region through the period. This will keep a light to modest
onshore flow in place.

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.
