What's New / NOTES
6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

GMZ600 Synopsis For Destin Fl To Pascagoula Ms Out 60 Nm Including Mobile Bay- 358 Pm Cdt Tue Jun 27 2017
Synopsis..Surface ridge of high pressure over the midwest will shift over the eastern seaboard and western atlantic by midweek, with light southerly flow setting up over the local marine area by Wednesday. Southerly winds then continue through the remainder of the week as the surface ridge to the north shifts east. Increasing chances for showers and storms will accompany increased moisture Wednesday through the latter half of this week.

area forecast discussion
national weather service new orleans la
309 pm cdt Tue jun 27 2017

Short term
A stationary front lingering just off the louisiana coast will
slowly push inland tonight and tomorrow morning in response to an
approaching upper level vorticity MAX slowly ejecting out of texas
and the western gulf. A weak mid-level reflection of this upper
level feature will also assist in pushing the stalled boundary
inland over the 24 hours. Forcing along this boundary combined
with favorable jet dynamics and lift aloft will allow for
increased rain chances beginning late tonight for areas south of
i-10 and then expanding across the entire forecast area by
tomorrow afternoon. Pop should remain fairly low tonight, but is
expected to rise into the 50 to 70 percent range by tomorrow
afternoon. Highest pop will be nearest the boundary south of the
i-10 corridor tomorrow afternoon. With extensive cloud cover and
convective activity around, afternoon highs will remain held in
check with readings only expected in the middle 80s.

A slight decrease in convective activity should occur tomorrow
night as temperatures cool back into the middle 70s, but decent
mid and upper level omega values will support continued convective
activity near the low level boundary through the night. Have high
end chance pop around 50 percent areas along and south of the i-10
corridor to reflect this continued convective risk. Thursday
should be the most active day in terms of overall convective
coverage as the low level boundary will draped along the i-10
corridor and the upper level trough axis will be directly over the
region. Ample forcing and instability will be in place as
temperatures rise back into the middle 80s. Have likely pop of
around 70 percent in the forecast for the entire region. Severe
weather threat should be fairly limited, but above average
precipitable water values and mixing ratios support some locally
heavy downpours and possible street flooding issues on Thursday.

The upper level trough will begin to shear out and weaken Thursday
night and Friday and the weak low level boundary will continue to
shift further inland over this period. As a result, overall rain
potential will begin to decrease on Friday. Expect to see slight
chance and low end chance pop Thursday night as temperatures cool
off and overall instability decreases, and then a return to more
scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms by Friday
afternoon as lingering moisture and ample instability combines
with the weaker omega aloft to produce a pop of 40 to 60 percent.

Long term
A more normal summer weather pattern will become established by
Saturday and then remain in place through early next week. A broad
ridge will extend westward across the eastern and central gulf
from the western atlantic through the period placing the area on
the western side of this ridge. Deep layer southerly flow in the
low levels will take hold of the area resulting in warm and muggy
conditions each day. However, the influence of the ridge in the
upper levels will introduce some subsidence and drier air in the
mid and upper levels. This will produce a weak mid-level cap which
will inhibit most convective activity. However, localized forcing
mechanisms associated with the seabreeze cycle should allow for a
general 20 to 30 percent pop and isolated to scattered convection
each afternoon as temperatures climb into the lower 90s. The
convection should dissipate fairly quickly in the evening as
temperatures cool into the 80s and then middle to upper 70s
resulting in mainly dry conditions each night.

Aviation
Tafs will continue to show mostly quiet conditions with
a great deal of mid and high clouds over the area but can't
completely rule out low CIGS that may lead to MVFR for a very short
time. This afternoon. Very light showers are mainly located south of
the coast but a stray shower or two could impact hum. Other than
that look forVFR conditions to remain. Cab

Marine
No change in the thinking as winds should begin to
slowly veer around tonight with onshore flow returning by tomorrow.

Onshore flow will be in place through the remainder of the forecast
maybe picking up to 10 to 15 knots at times but overall the onshore
should remain weak for most of the forecast. Other concern will be
convection that should impact at least the near shore waters each
day. Cab

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.
