Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Update... Current forecast generally on track with minor
adjustments needed. Some downward temperature adjustment needed
northeastern portions of the forecast area to reflect cooler than
forecast temperatures. Have also bumped tds down a bit area-wide to
reflect a bit drier airmass over the area. Updated forecast out
shortly.

16 12z issuance...VFR conditions prevail for the next 24 hours,
although some high, thin cirrus clouds possible. Light mainly
north winds today (except briefly light onshore near the beaches
late today) then calm to very light north tonight. 12 ds
prev discussion... Issued 404 am cst Fri nov 16 2018
near term now through Friday night ... Surface high pressure ridge
axis just west of the forecast area early this morning will
become oriented over the forecast area tonight. A cool, dry and
stable airmass will prevail across the region. Only available
moisture, while slight, is in the upper levels of the atmosphere
and as a weak shortwave moves east toward and then across the area
today and this evening, a few high thin cirrus clouds can be
expected. Current IR satellite imagery is already showing these
high clouds streaming out of texas eastward into alabama. These
clouds will not have much of an effect on sky cover and a mostly
sunny day is expected today. Expect MAX temperatures today to
continue below normal by 6 to 8 degrees, but warmer than
yesterday. Look for highs to top out in the lower 60s for most
locations. Still cold tonight, but temperatures will remain above
freezing, ranging from the mid upper 30s over interior locations
and lower 40s closer to and along the coast. 12 ds
short term Saturday through Sunday night ... Surface high
pressure holds over the deep south into the weekend. Some high
based clouds (cirrus) look to continue to stream eastward over
the area in the higher level west southwest flow. No rain forecast
with daytime highs returning to near seasonal. Overnight lows
gradually moderate, but still cool. 10
long term Monday through Thursday ... The passage of a southern
stream mid level short wave trof early next week brings next
frontal passage Monday Monday night. With little moisture return
ahead of the boundary, will maintain rain-free conditions.

Following the passage of the front, surface high pressure over the
plains expands eastward from the northeast us to the deep south
by the middle of the week.

A wave of frontal low pressure, in the formative stages off the
texas coast Wednesday, eases east southeastward into the central
gulf during the day Thursday. Any wet weather associated with this
system by Thursday looks to be confined to the coastal zones and
deep into the gulf. Highs and lows during the medium range not too
far off climatology. 10
marine... With the cold temperatures over land areas early this
morning and the relatively warmer near shore waters, a light to
moderate offshore flow will continue over the nearshore gulf waters
this morning, ocnly gusting to 15 to 20 knots. Sustained winds
generally in the 10 to 15 knot range and only ocnl higher gusts, so
will not highlight scec. By late morning or early afternoon
sustained winds expected to subside to no more than about 10-12
knots. Thereafter, a mainly light north to northeasterly flow is
expected to be maintained over the marine area through the
weekend and into the early to middle part of next week. Seas well
offshore initially 2 to 3 feet this morning, subsiding to around 2
feet this afternoon, then expected to be 2 feet or less through
the remainder of the period. Waves on bays and sounds expected to
generally be 1 foot or less through the period. 12 ds

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.
