Synopsis..A surface ridge of high pressure over the western atlantic will continue to extend west over the eastern and north central gulf through early Tuesday, then shift southward through midweek in response to a weak frontal boundary approaching from the north. The weak front will move offshore early Wednesday then stall offshore later in the week.

06z issuance... WhileVFR conditions exist over much of the area,
some locations will experience lifr ifr low ceilings with patchy
light fog overnight. Isolated to scattered showers and storms
develop near the coast late tonight and develop spread inland on
Monday. Ifr MVFR conditions will accompany the convection. Light
southerly winds tonight increase to near 10 knots on Monday. 29

discussion... See updated information for land areas below.

Update... Have updated to remove pops for most of the area for the
remainder of the evening. Isolated to possibly scattered showers
and storms will redevelop late tonight with the best coverage near
the coast. Made additional minor adjustments. 29

Aviation...

00z issuance... Another repeat of the past 24 hours is expected
with current convection waning dissipating then redeveloping near
the shore late tonight and developing spreading inland during the
day on Monday. Ifr MVFR conditions accompany the convection while
vfr conditions are otherwise expected. Light southerly winds
tonight become south to southwest near 10 knots on Monday. 29
prev discussion... Issued 400 pm cdt Sun aug 19 2018
near term now through Monday ... Southwest mid and upper level
flow will continue over the region tonight as Sunday as a trof and
associated area of mid to upper level low pressure continues over
the middle part of the country. Weak disturbances in the
southwesterly flow aloft will intermittently lift northeast across
the area, continuing to provide enough upper support to produce
scattered to occasionally numerous showers and thunderstorms across
the region through Monday. Most of the convective activity in the
near term period will be this evening and then again during the day
on Monday. Any lingering showers and storms overnight will likely be
more isolated and near the coast or over the adjacent nearshore gulf
waters. As has been the case over the past several days, storm
motion, likely to the east or northeast, will be very slow. This
slow movement, combined with the very moist airmass in place across
the region (pwat's expected to be in the 2.00 to 2.30 inch range
across the entire forecast area) will result in very efficient
rainfall producers. Rainfall rates of up to 2 to 3 inches per hour
will be possible. The ground is becoming increasingly saturated over
a large area over interior portions of the forecast area, and even
though our area is not outlooked for any excessive rainfall threat
on Monday, we could have a potential for some minor flooding of
urban areas as well as some other locations with low lying and poor
drainage areas. The deep moisture profiles should limit any severe
weather, but storms could still produce gusty winds of 30 to 35 mph.

Low temperatures tonight generally in the low to mid 70s. With
widespread cloud cover on Monday, highs tomorrow expected to be
mostly in the upper 80s. 12 ds
short term Monday night through Wednesday night ... The southern
end of a large upper trough will move across the area on Tuesday.

An associated sfc low will move across the great lakes region on
Tuesday with a trailing front moving toward the coast late Tuesday
night. The approaching boundary combined with plenty of deep
layer moisture will maintain high rain chances through Tuesday.

The GFS remains more aggressive in moving the front offshore
Wednesday with a much drier airmass moving into the area. The
ecmwf hangs the front up near the coast with not as much drying.

Considering the time of year, will lean toward the ECMWF solution
of maintaining isolated pops across southern portions of the area
on Wednesday. 13
long term Thursday through Sunday ... The boundary remains
stalled near the coast on Thursday and washes out on Friday. As a
result, isolated showers and thunderstorms will continue across
southern parts of the area. Deep layer moisture returns to the
area late in the week into weekend, returning scattered showers
and thunderstorms to the forecast for the entire area. 13
marine... A surface ridge of high pressure will extend from the
western atlantic to the central gulf of mexico through early next
week. This will maintain a light to occasionally moderate
southwesterly wind over the marine area through Tuesday. By
Wednesday, a weak trof-frontal boundary will drift south toward the
gulf coast and perhaps move just offshore over the coastal waters.

Winds will become more westerly, and perhaps even northwesterly at
times during the middle part of the week. By weeks end, the trof-
frontal boundary will weaken and winds become more southeasterly as
high pressure begins to develop and ridge into the northern gulf
from the east. Little change in seas expected through the period.

Winds and seas will be locally higher near scattered to occasionally
numerous showers and thunderstorms, especially during the early part
of the week. 12 ds

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.
