Aviation
18z issuance...VFR conditions will prevail through the next 24
hours. 13
prev discussion... Issued 458 am cst Thu nov 15 2018
near term now through Thursday night ... A freeze warning remains
in effect for most inland areas of the forecast area through 9 am
cst, although cloud cover has resulted in temperatures having
trouble dropping to the freezing mark over parts of interior
alabama but being reached over interior southeast mississippi.

For this reason, a freeze warning has now been issued for tonight
into early Friday morning for most inland areas of the forecast
area, excluding inland southeast ms, effective from 2 am cst
through 9 am cst Fri morning. Southeast mississippi was left out
of tonights freeze warning because warnings are usually issued
for only the first light freeze of the fall winter season.

Freezing temps have occurred over most areas in inland southeast
ms this morning. As a result a freeze warning will not be
reissued where those freezing temps have occurred. If additional
reports of freezing are reported this morning in al or nwfl these
areas will be removed from the current freeze warning for tonight.

Rain and low clouds will continue to shift east of the forecast
area this morning as the main upper low to the north continues to
shift northeast. A broad surface ridge of high pressure generally
over east tx and the western gulf early today will shift east and
settle over the lower ms river valley and central gulf states by
early Fri morning. With this pattern expect mostly sunny skies
with warmer surface temps late this morning through mid to late
afternoon compared to yesterday. A light northerly wind flow is
also expected. For tonight with clear skies and light winds
expected another round of freezing temps for most inland areas of
the forecast area will be likely. Will also mention widespread
frost for most inland areas tonight.

Highs today will range from the mid to upper 40s for areas generally
north of the i-10 corridor and the lower 50s further south to the
immediate coast. Lows tonight will range from the mid 20s to lower
30s for most inland areas generally along an north of the i-10
corridor and the lower to middle 30s further south towards the
coast, and the upper 30s to lower 40s along the immediate coast.

32 ee
short term Friday through Saturday night ... Surface high
pressure will be moving very slowly east across the forecast area
through the short term period with generally clear skies and only
a few thin cirrus clouds possible in the west-southwest flow
aloft. Cool temperatures will continue in the short term period,
with highs in the upper 50s and lower 60s on Friday and then in
the mid to upper 60s on Saturday. After a couple nights of near or
below freezing temperatures, a slight moderation of min temperatures
expected over the weekend, with lows Friday night ranging from
the mid upper 30s inland to the low mid 40s at the coast. On
Saturday night lows generally expected to range from the lower 40s
inland to the mid upper 40s at the coast. 12 ds
long term Sunday through Wednesday ... The dry conditions will
continue to prevail across the region through most of the long
term forecast period, but a gradual increase in cloudiness is
expected toward the end of the period as another weather system
begins to take shape over the plains states. Temperatures are
expected to be at or just below normal for this time of the year.

Daytime highs will be in the 60s and nighttime lows will be in the
40s over interior locations and the 50s down near the coast. 12 ds
marine... A moderate to strong northerly wind flow this morning will
slowly diminish through early Friday as high pressure to the west
shifts east. A light northerly wind flow will persist over the
marine area through early next week as the ridge of high pressure
settles over the north central gulf. 32 ee

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.
