the sounding this evening has easterly winds through 700 mb and
there are still a couple spotty showers in that easterly flow.
The chance for these brief showers will continue tonight and early
tomorrow morning, mainly near coastal areas. Winds are northerly
above 500 mb from being under the western side of an upper low. Pw
is above average at 1.9 inches.

weak upper low is over the forecast area and is triggering a few
showers and thunderstorms over the area. This upper low will
weaken and rain chances will come down tomorrow and lower to a dry
forecast on Wednesday. Temperatures will be in the upper 80s to
low 90s over the next few days. Overnight lows will be in the 70s.
mid level ridging will be in place through Thursday. Guidance
points to a cold front... Well cool front with little to no
moisture moving through the area Friday into Friday night. Drier
and cooler air will move into the area behind the front for the
weekend. Medium range models struggle with timing location of
shortwaves beyond Sunday. Moisture return begins as high pressure
along the atlantic coast turns winds onshore. Have maintained a
blend of guidance in the long range. Temperatures should cool into
the mid 80s by the weekend and overnight lows will dip into the
60s. Little to no rain is expected at this point in time.
isolated showers will continue to develop over coastal areas and
south of tidal lakes this afternoon affecting kgpt, knew, kmsy
and khum. This activity will push west and develop more inland
later in the afternoon. Will carry tempo for TS most TAF sites and
use vicinity sh for kmcb and kbtr. There will be a chance of MVFR
to brief ifr conditions at a few airports due to patchy fog late
tonight early Tuesday morning. 18
a weak trough of low pressure over the north central gulf of mexico
will push west through tonight. Ridge of high pressure will build|
just to the east of the coastal waters through the late Wednesday.
Winds and seas will collapse mid week with light southeast flow of
10 knots and seas of 3 feet or less during this period. A cold front
is expected to push through the coastal waters Thursday night into
Friday. Cool air advection off of brisk north winds over warm warmer
will cause waves to respond upward to 5 to 6 feet well offshore
Friday and Saturday nights. 18

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
