412 am cdt Wed may 24 2017

Short term
Cold front slowly making its way through the area this morning.

Strong short wave moving out of the base of the upper trough as
well. But strong dry air intrusion from 850mb up is coming in
ahead of the actual cold front. This deep layer is devouring
anything that tries to develop along and ahead of the front. This
case is just the opposite over the gulf this morning where severe
thunderstorms are developing. Once the front moves through, dry
air will gradually move in behind it making for a very nice few
days. Friday will be a transition day as southerly winds begin to
bring back deep moisture ahead of another front that is expected
to start affecting the area over the weekend. Memorial day may see
some thunderstorm activity, but there may be a few windows of
opportunity for outdoor activities honoring our fallen veterans.

Long term
The cold front stalls along the coast through what looks to be a
good part of next week. Activity along the boundary may also
become a diurnal hit and miss each day. A few upper disturbances
may also move along the stalled trough interface to produce some
overnight thunderstorms one or two nights as well. Resolving this
may come on a daily basis.

Aviation
Bkn015-030 ceilings with some -shra will move through this
morning. There is the possibility of a tsra for south shore
terminals but chances are not high enough to set for any one site.

Once the cold front moves through later this morning, skies will
begin to clear andVFR conditions should remain through the
remainder of the TAF period.

Marine
A cold front will move thorugh this morning causing winds to
rapidly increase from the NW up to 25kt. Small craft advisories
have been continued for this through this evening. Winds should
start to lay late tonight and become light westerly by Thursday
morning. A steady southerly fetch is expected to begin Thursday
night and remain into next week.

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.
