Discussion
Drier and cooler air, in the wake of the cold frontal passage and
passing mid upper level trough axis, is impressive for late may
and will lead to cool temperatures tonight. Lows are expected to
range from the lower to mid 50s over most northern areas with
upper 50s and lower 60s over most of the south. The surface high
will cover much of the gulf of mexico and north gulf coast region
Thursday before moving east Thursday night. Enjoy the drier,
cooler conditions while you can as the airmass will be quite
transient with return flow already back over the region Thursday
night into Friday morning. Rising humidity levels and south winds
will lead to warmer highs and lows Thursday and Thursday night,
then getting back to near to above normal temperatures starting
Friday.

The pattern will be progressive with a shortwave trough moving
from the northwest states east-southeast into the central
u.S. Upper to mid mississippi valley over the weekend. This will
push a frontal boundary south that will be stalling, most likely
north of the forecast area. Temperatures will be warming above
normal with most areas in the upper 80s to lower 90s Friday
through Sunday, except for some cooler mid 80s in some coastal
areas. The models have now trended drier with the front hung up to
the north, so little rainfall is now expected through Sunday
before some better rain chances return on memorial day. Have
lowered the rain chance on Sunday, and if model trends continue
even memorial day may see lower rain chances than currently
forecast. 22 td

Aviation
Vfr conditions expected through the period. Wind gusts near to
above 20 knots remain possible at most terminals this afternoon
but should ease around sunset. Cannot totally rule out a little
radiation fog at normally prone terminals around sunrise Thursday,
but threat too low to mention in forecast. 35

Marine
High pressure in the wake of the cold frontal passage will
continue to build into the region and become centered over the
central gulf of mexico around midday Thursday with a ridge axis
extending north across the lower mississippi valley. The
combination of the pressure gradient and cooler and drier
subsiding air should keep winds up around 20 knots or a bit higher
through this evening over the tidal lakes and and through about
midnight across remaining waters. Small craft advisory
headlines will not need adjustment, but will keep cautionary
headlines in effect over mainly eastern waters through the
remainder of tonight. A brief period of lighter winds will only
last much of Thursday, then a return of moderate south winds and
choppy seas waves are expected late Thursday night into Friday
and the weekend as the pressure gradient strengthens between high
pressure to the east and low pressure over the southern plains.

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.
