Discussion
Latest surface analysis showed a broad 1020mb high over northwest
gulf of mexico to tennessee valley. Upper air analysis revealed a
large anti- cyclonic circulation over the central plains with
an axis extending southeast to the mid south and lower
mississippi valley. A short wave was noted over ohio valley. In
addition, a closed cyclonic circulation was noted along the
eastern seaboard. The increase thickness layer over has warmed the
layer and suppressed most of the convection across the louisiana
and mississippi today.

Precipitable water values on a planer view showed values of around
1.5 inches over mississippi, east half of louisiana, arkansas and
tennessee. This feature initialized well but GFS initialized 2
inches over north mississippi but NAM not showing this feature
until 18z today. Northerly flow on the front side of upper level
high and flow on the backside of the east coast low will advect
in mid layer moisture associated with the short wave over ohio
valley. Either way, deeper moisture will arrive from the northeast
around 18z on Friday. Weather remain relatively precip free til
Friday. With surface dewpoint in the upper 70s and surface heating
Friday morning, many locales will reach heat index values of 100
degrees between 10 and 11 am Friday morning and several points
reaching 106 degrees heat index by noon. Our office will be
monitored this heat event through Friday.

The closed upper level low is expected to push west over the
forecast area this weekend. Over the forecast area, 500mb temps of
-5c will decrease to -8c, 700 to 500mb lapse rates increasing to
6.5c km and pw values increasing back up to 2 inches Friday and
over the weekend. As result, rain chances will go from nil today
to scattered to numerous over the weekend, Friday will be the
transition day. Upper level low will continue to push west and
open next week and push north by mid layer drying from the gulf.

This will slight shift will decrease our rain chances to slightly
below normal for next week and dangerous heat index values will
return with brief relief. 18

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail at all of the terminals through tomorrow
afternoon. Some scattered thunderstorm activity should develop from
late morning through the afternoon hours, and will include vcts
wording to reflect this risk. 32

Marine
A rather benign weather regime will persist over the coastal waters
through early next week as the region remains on the western
periphery of broad surface high. A weak nocturnal coastal jet
associated with the seabreeze landbreeze pattern is expected to
develop each night resulting in some westerly winds around 15 knots
each night. Seas will generally range between 1 and 2 feet through
the period, but areas beneath the nocturnal jet could see a brief
period of seas up to 3 feet. Overall, no significant impacts to
mariners are expected through the first half of next week. 32

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.
