441 am cdt Wed mar 20 2019

Near term now through Wednesday night Surface high pressure shifts
east along the eastern seaboard today. An approaching cold front
currently extending southwestward from a low over missouri across
northern texas will push across SE mississippi and into SW alabama
this evening and move across south central alabama and the
western florida panhandle after midnight. North to northeasterly
surface winds will become east to southeasterly late this
afternoon into the early evening hours with northwesterly winds
following in the wake of the front. The very dry low level airmass
over the region will likely result in the evaporation of any
light precipitation produced by this weak frontal system.

Generally blue skies are anticipated for today with a band of mid
and high level clouds associated with the frontal system passing
over the area during the evening and overnight hours. Daytime high
temperatures will be a little warmer today ranging from the upper
60s to low 70s. Overnight lows will drop into the low to mid 40s
over interior locations and mid to upper 40s nearer the coast and
low 50s along the immediate coast. 08

Short term Thursday through Friday night Thursday, a drier airmass
moves over the forecast area in the wake of a weak cold front
crossing the area Wednesday night. High temperatures rising into
the upper 60s to around 70 expected.

Thursday night through Friday night, as an upper shortwave system
over the northeast and new england moves off, as more shortwave
energy moves east over the western conus. An upper ridge over the
plains shifts east to near the mississippi river valley. A surface
ridge near the u.S. Rockies shifts east over the plains and the
mississippi river valley in response, with the northerly flow
present during the week easing as the ridge moves east of the
mississippi river Friday night. With increasing subsidence from the
approaching upper ridge and the easing, then loss, of the cooler
northerly flow, temperatures rise. High Friday in the low 70s
expected, around seasonal norms. Overnight lows remain a bit below
seasonal, with the dry airmass and clear skies allowing for more
efficient radiational cooling. Lows Thursday night in low 40s are
expected, mid to upper 40s Friday night.

Long term Saturday through Tuesday Saturday through Sunday
night, the western CONUS shortwave energy moves east over the
plains. The surface ridge located east of the mississippi river
shifts east to off the east coast, bringing southerly flow back to
the forecast, and with gulf moisture beginning to return. High
temperatures rise to above seasonal norms through the weekend as the
upper ridge approaches from the west, with low to mid 70s expected
Saturday, mid to upper 70s Sunday. Lows Saturday night in the upper
40s to low 50s are expected, low to mid 50s Sunday night.

Guidance begins to diverge early in the coming week as the western
energy moves over the eastern plains and the mississippi river, and
into an upper trough digging south along the eastern seaboard. The
gfs is advertising a more progressive, less organized solution,
bringing isentropic upglide rain-showers to the forecast area early
Monday into early Tuesday. The ECMWF is advertising a slower, more
organized passage, bringing rain to the forecast area late Monday
into Tuesday night. With the GFS ensembles advertising a slower
solution, and ECMWF ensembles advertising a bit quicker solution,
have went with a compromise solution in bringing rain back to the
area during the day Monday and moving east of the area Tuesday
morning. Soundings from both models are advertising enough
instability for thunderstorms, so have added for event. Temperatures
are also a compromise, with the GFS advertising a cold front
crossing the forecast area early Monday night and the ecmwf
advertising late Tuesday. Temperatures above seasonal norms Monday
cool to below seasonal for Tuesday as cooler air overspreads the
forecast area beginning late Monday night.

Marine A moderate offshore flow this morning will become east to
southeasterly this afternoon and weaken as high pressure shifts east
into the western atlantic. A moderate westerly wind develops this
evening as a cold front approaches from the northwest becoming
northwesterly in the wake of the cold front. A moderate offshore
flow then persists into the weekend becoming southeasterly Saturday
afternoon in response to another cold front approaching from the
west. 08

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.
