Discussion
Early morning sfc analysis shows high pressure holding on over the
region, centered off the carolina coast and ridging swwd to the
wrn gulf region. Water vapor imagery shows a shortwave departing
the forecast area at this time... Helping fire some shower activity
mainly over the coastal waters off sern la... With another weaker
vort upstream moving into the red river valley... The main impact
of this feature is considerable cirrus per satellite imagery
approaching the area. Meanwhile another significant shortwave is
noted moving into the WRN great lakes this morning.

Expecting to see showers begin developing mainly over the swrn
zones after sunrise as the approaching shortwave begins
encountering a little deeper moisture off the gulf per forecast
soundings. This activity will spread across the remainder of the
forecast are over the rest of the day, although highest pops will
remain over the swrn zones where moisture will be best. Also
inserted iso thunder for the afternoon as forecast soundings are
beginning to show just a little instability along with better
low-level convergence. Meanwhile the system crossing the great
lakes today is progged to drive our next cold front... Currently
noted over the cntl plains... Toward the region tonight which
should push any preceding convection out the area and into the
gulf with its arrival.

No significant changes thereafter with our thanksgiving weather
still looking dry but chilly as nrly flow again develops aloft
and high pressure builds over the region at the sfc. Morning wake
up temps are expected to be around freezing across the nern 1 4 of
the area, with readings in the mid upper 30s elsewhere. Highs are
currently forecast to top out around 60 across the ERN 1 2. In
our progressive pattern, high pressure will quickly build past the
region, allowing for a brief warmup before another front slides
through over the weekend. As of now, moisture looks too slim to
allow for much chance of rain with its passage.

Marine
Another round of elevated (in this case, caution-criteria winds)
offshore flow is expected with the frontal passage beginning
tonight and lingering through Wednesday.

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.
