Discussion We are beginning to wind down now from now tropical
depression cindy. With that it was a windy day today across the
region with numerous locations gusting to and a few even over 40
mph. That band of heavy rain did develop over coastal ms early this
morning and led to flash flooding, mainly in jackson county.

Otherwise we have seen a few weaker bands of convection and then
mostly scattered showers late this afternoon. Some storms did
exhibit rotation and a few tornado warnings were issued early and we
have unconfirmed reports of a possible funnel cloud or even tornado
in st helena parish.

As for the next few days rain chances will still be above normal. Td
cindy will continue to move north finally becoming absorbed in the
main flow Friday. As this occurs the l W trough will amplify
eventually sending a weak front into the region Sunday. Ahead and
along this boundary, along with daytime heating, will combine with
the left over moisture from cindy and lead to decent rain chances
each day through Sunday. The boundary should stall around the coast
overnight Sunday or early Monday. There may be just enough push to
get some drier air in here Monday and Tuesday but at the least the
deeper moisture should be pushed south and with that lower rain
chances Monday but more so Tuesday and Wednesday. As for
temperatures, we should remain warm and humid through at least
Saturday. If convection fires early in the day then extensive cloud
cover and rain could help keep the region cooler than the expected
upper 80s to near 90 that we have forecast. We could be just a tad
cooler Sunday and Monday but a lot will depend on strength and
timing of the front.

With respect to hazardous impacts. We will allow the flash flood
watch to expire at 7pm. There is still a small risk of a few more
thin bands of heavy rain but the biggest concern for any additional
flooding would be over coastal ms, mainly harrison and jackson
county. The coastal flood advisory will continue into tomorrow. Even
though tides at most locations have come down from their peak the
strong southerly winds and one more tide cycle will continue to lead
to some minor coastal flooding. Conditions should really begin to
improve tomorrow around midday and during the afternoon. Last is the
tornado watch which is in effect till 3z. If convection really
begins to taper off with no redevelopment in site we may cancel this
early. Cab

Aviation Ceilings have generally improved to about 3500 feet,
though some lowering is expected again tonight. Visibilities
prevailing 6 miles except for early this afternoon where a broken
band of heavy rain is near btr, mcb, and hdc terminals visibility
around 3 miles is possible. Winds will remain gusty from the south
with gusts over 20 knots expected through the early evening hours.

Winds then drop tonight except for more coastal terminals msy,
new, asd, gpt, and hum. Ak

Marine Even with tropical depression cindy moving away and
weakening we will still deal with very strong southerly winds. All
of the coastal waters will remain in the scy until tomorrow
afternoon. By that time winds should relax enough over much of the
area allowing the hazardous conditions to come to an end. Winds will
continue to weaken heading into the weekend as the weak front
approaches. The boundary will stall along the coast or possibly just
into the coastal waters. As this happens winds will likely be a
little more chaotic controlled more by diurnal shifts. Cab

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.
