wx map shows 1032mb sfc high over the eastern u.S. This afternoon,
with southwest ridging keeping an easterly flow over the region.

Visible satellite finally showing the scattered to broken mid to
high cloud layers dissipating this afternoon, leaving mostly sunny
skies for the region. Afternoon temperatures in the upper 60s to
near 70.

The weak ridging will allow winds to diminish this evening and
overnight. With the mostly clear skies, this will allow temperatures
to fall in the lower 40s across c la, mid 40s S la and inland se
tx, and upper 40s along the i-10 corridor of SE tx to the coast.

Another re-enforcing cool front and high pressure will move through
the region Wednesday night into Thursday morning, continuing the
cool conditions through Friday.

By Saturday, the high will slip east, allowing for return southeast
to southerly flow to prevail through the remainder of the
weekend. The low chances of showers and thunderstorms will return
by Saturday, with slightly higher chances Sunday into early Monday
as an upper level trough approaches from the west.

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.
