Short term
Numbers of sh TS will be low again today as we remain under a
drier and more subsident environment. The dry air is moving into
the area from the east and southeast. This is occurring as meso-
ridge waves rotate around the low to mid level stacked high
centered near the carolinas. This will slowly change as a wave of
moisture moves in Tuesday and Wednesday. The upper low will also
contribute as it moves west very slowly.

One thing that is helping us stay tropical cyclone free is the
bermuda ridge holding strong as it is connected with the stacked
high over the southwest conus. This provides a nice strong ridge
pattern from 500mb up and stretches across the entire southern
gulf coast. But this changes a bit through the week as the mid-
upper ridge breaks down Wednesday and Thursday. This will be due
to a trough, currently located over saskatchewan canada, digging
southward into the ridge by mid and late week. This will occur
rapidly through Tuesday then slows to a crawl as it approaches the
southeast conus. This weakness will keep the sh TS going over our
area as well by weeks' end. But alas, the mid and upper bermuda
ridge will not give in as it will build back over the area by
Friday.

Long term
A possible wet weekend coming up and global models want to leave
the sfc weakness very close or even over the area into the first
of next week. This should keep the chances of sh TS on the higher
than average side as we move through the weekend into the start of
next week.

Aviation Tsra will show a low coverage again today. There will
not be enough probability to include in this TAF cycle.VFR
conditions should be the prevailing conditions with the only
exception being some vis reduction due to br or even fg for a
short time around sunrise. This should mainly affect terminals
west and north.

Marine No changes as high pressure remains the dominant
factor over the northern gulf. Diurnal fluctuations will remain the
main driver of winds. Most nights, look for a weak enhanced jet over
the waters east of the ms delta where winds could bump up to near 10
knots. Seas will remain around 2 ft or less.

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.
