404 am cdt Thu apr 26 2018

Near term now through Thursday night A shortwave trof near the
lower mid mississippi river valley moves quickly across the forecast
area through the early afternoon hours followed by a longwave upper
trof developing over the eastern states tonight. A surface low
associated with the shortwave trof will be initially located near
central mississippi then moves across interior alabama through this
afternoon. This system will have brought a cold front into the far
western portion of the area by the beginning of the period which
then progresses quickly eastward through the forecast area this
morning. The quick movement of both the front and the associated
shortwave trof brings scattered to numerous occasional showers
moving across the area mainly during the morning hours, with the
higher pops over interior areas along with some embedded storms.

Some mainly isolated showers will linger over the eastern portion
early this afternoon before dry conditions follow for the
remainder of the period. Instability is rather limited and no
strong or severe storms are expected. 29

Short term Friday through Saturday night Another fast moving
upper level positive tilt trof and associated increase in potential
vorticity advances quickly eastward over the central gulf coast
Friday. With the passage of this system and a weak surface
pressure trof, may be enough lift to squeeze out a small pop
Friday over the western zones. Slight chance of a passing storm in
the presence of weak daytime instability over portions of
interior southeast ms and coastal al Friday afternoon. As the
upper trof sweeps east Friday night, a deep layer dry airmass
overspreads the area, bringing the beginning to a nice spring
weekend.

Long term Sunday through Wednesday Surface high pressure from
the great lakes southward to the northern gulf Sunday is forecast
to drop southeast to off the southeast us coast by Monday. The
high moves a bit more east over the western atlantic into the
middle of next week. With the high to our east, a return flow sets
up off the gulf, bringing a modification in deeper layer moisture
and a return chance of showers and storms by Tuesday. Temperatures
also show a moderation trend going through the medium range. 10

Marine Light to moderate southwesterly winds early this morning
transition to a moderate to occasionally strong westerly flow as a
cold front moves across the marine area. Will have small craft
exercise caution for most of the area today. A moderate
northwesterly flow follows for tonight then subsides on Friday. A
light to moderate northeasterly flow develops on Sunday then becomes
southeast on Monday. 29

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
