455 am cdt Tue oct 24 2017
Near term now through Tuesday night Cooler and drier surface
high pressure builds east over the forecast area today and tonight.
A reinforcing shortwave trof aloft will move east across the area
this evening, but with the very dry airmass no precipitation is
expected, although a few mid high clouds may develop and move
across the area in the flow aloft. Surface winds primarily light
to moderate northwest, strongest near the coast. Highs today in
the lower 70s. Lows tonight ranging from around 40 over interior
zones, to the upper 40s close to the coast with a few lower 50s
right along the beaches and barrier islands. With winds more
northerly, have decreased the rip current risk along the beaches
to moderate. 12 ds
Short term Wednesday through Thursday night Rain remains
out of the short term period with temperatures below seasonal
normals. Under sunny skies, highs on Wednesday in the mid to
upper 60s, well below normal. With low dewpoints in place, clear
skies and light winds, a good radiational cooling Wednesday night
will continue to favor lows in the lower 40s over interior zones,
with a few normally colder locations possibly dipping into the
upper 30s. Mid to upper 40s expected Wednesday night along the
beaches. As surface high pressure shifts east of the area by
Thursday, a return flow off the gulf will result in a modification
in daytime highs on Thursday, rising into the lower 70s for most
locations. Overnight low temps modify fairly significantly
Thursday night, ranging from the upper 40s over the far northern
interior counties to the upper 50s to the south closer to the
coast and perhaps a few lower 60s immediate beaches and barrier
islands. 12 ds
Long term Friday through Monday For Fri rain chances begin to increase as deep a upper
trof over the central plains approaches from the west. Rain chances
increase ahead of this system beginning Fri afternoon continuing
through Sat afternoon as a sfc cold front also approaches from the
west. For now will continue to mention mostly rainshowers with maybe
an isolated thunderstorm occurring Fri afternoon and early fri
evening due to limited surface based instability. By late Fri into
early Sat the cold front moves across the region with still
available moisture in the wake of the front for sct rainshowers to
continue through mid afternoon, becoming isolated late in the day.
By Sun much cooler air moves across the region with a moderate
northerly flow in its wake. As a result the coldest daytime temps
for the fall season so far will be likely on sun. Colder drier air
continues over the region through Mon with mostly clear skies at
night and sunny conditions during the day. Lows Fri morning will be
in the upper 40s to lower 50s inland and the mid 50s near the coast.
Highs Fri afternoon will range from the low to mid 70s for most
locations. Lows Sat morning will range from the upper 50s to lower
60s to the north and the mid to upper 60s to near 70 near the coast.
Lows both Sun and Mon will range from the upper 30s to lower 40s
inland and the mid 40s near the coast. Highs Sun will range from the
upper 50s to lower 60s inland and the lower to mid 60s near the
coast. Highs Mon will range from the mid to upper 60s for most
locations. 32 ee

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
