326 am cdt Wed mar 29 2017

Short term
Latest model run beginning to edge toward the euro's solution of a
divergent upper flow event from the coast southward. The polar
upper trough will still be capable of producing severe
thunderstorms over the area and northward but the majority and
strongest of our thunderstorms look to be from near the coast
southward associated with the divergent area of the polar and
subtropical jets. Could be a bad day for mariners Thursday. The
blow up over the northern gulf and the strong to severe
thunderstorms along the cold front will both help to cause some
strong subsidence between them. This will help limit thunderstorm
potential in that location but not negate it. This looks to fall
somewhere in southern mississippi. Will keep all modes of severe
weather along with the slight risk of severe that SPC continues
for all land areas as the line of sh/ts moves into the area late
tonight.

Long term
The next system should begin to affect the area by Sunday
afternoon and move through by early Monday. This time the main sfc
low is advertised to be a lot closer to the area with the best
dynamics and lift associated with it. This storm system also looks
to have all modes of severe weather accompany it. Still some time
for this to be shifted slightly north or south over the coming
days so will continue to mainly focus on the Thursday system.

Aviation
As of this writing, most terminals seeing some sct-bkn clouds in the
fl015-025 range, with the exception of kmcb, which has ifr
conditions. Most will see at least a brief period of MVFR conditions
this morning, but only have kmcb with ifr. Improvement toVFR
conditions is expected by mid to late morning, around 15-16z. Those
conditions should continue for the remainder of the daytime hours.

Another round of MVFR to ifr conditions is expected to redevelop
after sunset this evening, but any mention of tsra isn't likely in
the 12z package unless it is in the 08z-12z Thursday window at kbtr.

Midday package will probably have tsra in most terminals in the 12z-
18z Thursday time frame. 35

Marine
Will expand and extend small craft exercise caution headlines to
include all outer waters and western inner open waters through the
afternoon hours. Anticipate those will need extended and/or expanded
beyond this afternoon through at least Thursday night. Mariners will
also have to concern themselves with the threat of a line of
thunderstorms moving through the coastal waters late tonight and
Thursday. Another round of strengthening winds as well as
thunderstorms may require headlines late in the weekend. 35

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.
