Aviation
With developing low pressure system over texas and advancing into
the immediate forecast area, cloud decks will steadily lower from
mid-levelVFR to rain-induced MVFR levels by daybreak at nearly
all terminal locations. Low passes directly over the region to
bring dynamically induced winds for a period of gustiness during
the early to mid afternoon hours, along with ifr ceilings and, at
times, reduced ifr visibility in heavy rainfall likely in bands.

Once low moves away from the coast, winds become SW with upper
level cold pool advancing into the region to maintain extended ifr
to low end MVFR ceilings through the end of the valid TAF period.

Some marine layer influences along the ms coast may bring
advective sea fog into kgpt, kpql and khsa despite strong winds
Thursday evening. 24 rr

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.
