Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
12z issuance...VFR conditions expected for the next 24 hours. A
mid cloud deck moving through the area early this morning will
shift east in the next few hours leaving mainly clear skies for
the rest of the day. A northwesterly surface wind will prevail
today becoming gusty at times from mid morning through the
afternoon. 08

Prev discussion issued 456 am cdt Thu mar 21 2019
near term now through Thursday night ... Surface high pressure
over the southern plains builds in producing a northwesterly wind
flow in the wake of the departing cold front. Winds aloft also
veer to the northwest as a mid level ridge begins to build in.

Winds will be gusty at times today as surface heating allows some
of the stronger low level flow aloft to mix down to the surface.

Post frontal mid and high level cloud cover currently over more
inland portions of the area will shift east of the area this
morning providing for another day of widespread blue skies. High
temperatures today climb into the upper 60s and lower 70s again.

Another shortwave trough traveling southeastward along the eastern
flank of the ridge aloft will drive another weak cold front
southward across the region tonight. This boundary will have
little impact on sensible weather and produce little in the way of
cloud cover. Overnight lows tonight drop into the upper 30s and
low 40s west of the i-65 corridor and low to mid 40s east with
upper 40s to low 50s possible along the immediate coast. 08
short term Friday through Saturday night ... A surface ridge shifts
east to over the eastern seaboard in response. General north to
northeasterly flow in the low levels becomes southeast to south
over the forecast area Sunday night, opening the forecast area for
the return of gulf moisture. With the passing upper ridge,
temperatures ease upward through the weekend. Highs Friday (upper
60s to low 70s) rise from a bit below seasonal norms to above (mid
to upper 70s) for Saturday. Lows Friday and Saturday night remain
below seasonal. Lows generally in the low to mid 40s expected
Friday night, mid to upper 40s inland and around 50 along the
coast as warming southerly flow off the gulf returns. 16
long term Sunday through Wednesday ... In the long term, timing
of the return of precipitation to the forecast area remains the
biggest challenge. Guidance is advertising a series of mid level
shortwaves moving from over the plains into a developing upper
trough stretching south along the eastern seaboard. Timing and
strength of the shortwave's passage among the guidance has come
into better agreement from yesterday, with the energy moving
across the southeast Monday through Tuesday. A cold front
associated with this weakly organized system moves south across
the forecast area late Monday night into Tuesday. Rain showers
and a few thunderstorms develop ahead of the front Monday into
Tuesday night, with the precipitation moving east of the area
early Tuesday as the upper energy moves east. Ahead of the
frontal passage, highs Sunday and Monday in the mid to upper 70s
expected. Upper 60s to around 70 are expected for Tuesday and
Wednesday as cooler air moves over the area. Temperatures are
expected to fall into the 50s Sunday and Monday nights, the 40s
for Tuesday night.

marine... A moderate to strong offshore flow following in the wake of
a cold front moving southeastward across the gulf will gradually
diminish. A light to moderate westerly to northerly flow develops
later today and persists through Friday. An onshore flow returns
Saturday afternoon and strengthens Monday as a cold front approaches.

A moderate to strong offshore flow follows in the wake of the cold
front Monday night. 08

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.
