345 am cdt Mon oct 23 2017

Synopsis
A much quieter morning this morning with the cold front that
triggered yesterday's weather currently along a birmingham to
pensacola line. Upper low is near memphis at this time. Some low
clouds wrapping around upper low are noted on satellite over
mississippi, but most of the area is clear. Temperatures range
from the upper 50s across northwest sections of the area to 72 at
boothville. Dew points range from mid 50s to mid 60s.

Short term
Upper pattern is in the process of digging a deep trough into the
eastern third of the country. We should see abundant sunshine
across the area today with cooler temperatures than earlier in the
weekend. High temperatures today will be in the 70s, even with
full sunshine. Overnight lows will range from upper 40s to mid
50s.

A stronger shortwave will sweep through the area on Tuesday,
reinforcing the push of colder and drier air. Little in the way of
clouds or precipitation expected with the frontal passage. Highs
on Tuesday likely to be a few degrees cooler than today, but with
the frontal passage, late afternoon and early evening temperatures
could drop pretty quickly. Overnight lows Tuesday night will be
the coolest that we've seen since mid-march in many areas, with
lows near 40 expected across the northern half of the area.

Temperatures will only recover into the upper 60s on Wednesday. 35

Long term
Shortwave ridging builds across the area on Thursday, but will be
very short-lived as the upper trough over the great lakes reloads.

Gfs and ECMWF are definitely not on the same page regarding
temperatures and precipitation this weekend. ECMWF solution is
quite a bit wetter than the GFS for Friday night and Saturday. The
ecmwf also had significant temperature changes from it's previous
run. For now, will stay somewhat closer to the GFS solution, with
chance pop's Friday afternoon into Saturday. Confidence in
forecast solution beyond Friday is lower than normal, but we can
comfortably say that temperatures will be below normal Saturday
and Sunday. Not totally out of the question that some areas could
see lows in the 30s Sunday morning. 35

Aviation
GenerallyVFR category conditions will prevail at the terminals
through the TAF forecast period. However, a brief period of MVFR or
even ifr category ceilings may impact kgpt, kmcb and perhaps kasd
early this morning. Breezy northwest to north winds can be expected
at times through the day today, especially at kmsy and knew. 11

Marine
Moderate to strong offshore flow will prevail across the coastal
waters through Wednesday. The winds across the coastal waters today
will be borderline for small craft advisory conditions. Somewhat
stronger winds are expected Tuesday and Tuesday night with another
surge of cooler air. The winds will diminish by Wednesday night as
high pressure becomes situated directly over the area and then shift
to onshore on Thursday as the high quickly moves off to the east.

Another cold front will move across the coastal waters Friday night
into Saturday. 11

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.
