prev discussion... Issued 311 am cdt Fri may 24 2019
discussion...

the 00z 500 hpa geopotential height analysis showed a broad 588
dam ridge located over the gulf coast. These heights represent a
standardized anomaly of +2 to +3 sigma at 500 hpa. At the
surface, a 1020 hpa surface high pressure area was located beneath
the eastern half of the upper level ridge.

This anomalous upper level ridge and surface high pressure will
remain over the region through the weekend into early next week.

Deep layer anticyclonic flow around the upper level ridge and
surface high pressure will result in parcels originating from
parts of canada to be advected into the region over the next
several days. This will result in pwats being well below the 25th
percentile compared to climatology into early next week. As a
result, warm and dry conditions are expected to continue into
early next week.

By Tuesday of next week, an upper level trough is forecast to dig
into the central plains and middle mississippi river valley. The
developing weakness in the upper level height field will support
the development of a typical summer time diurnal cycle of
convection. Therefore, 20%-30% chances of showers and afternoon
thunderstorms are currently forecast beginning on Wednesday and
will likely continue during the later half of next week.

Marine...

moderate southeast winds of 10-15 knots with occasional gusts to
20 knots will continue through the day today. Winds and seas are
expected to subside through the weekend as high pressure builds
over the northern gulf of mexico. Moderate onshore flow will
return during the middle part of next week along with chances for
showers and thunderstorms.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
