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

this evening for an initially high coverage of showers and storms
which will diminish later this evening. Made other mostly minor
adjustments. 29
aviation...

00z issuance... MVFR conditions in showers and storms over much of
the area will be followed by prevailingVFR conditions later this
evening. Patchy fog is possible late tonight. Isolated to
scattered showers and storms develop near the coast late tonight
then develop and spread inland during the day on Sunday. Light and
variable winds tonight become southwest to south at 5 to 10 knots
on Sunday. 29
prev discussion... Issued 349 pm cdt Sat aug 18 2018
near term now through Sunday ... Upper trof axis that was just west
of the forecast area on Saturday flattens out somewhat tonight and
Sunday, but a few more weak shortwaves will be moving east across
the region tonight and Sunday. With a moist airmass remaining in
place, these upper disturbances will be enough to kick off more
showers and thunderstorms across the region. Still expect somewhat
of a diurnal pattern, with showers and storms diminishing over
inland areas tonight and being most numerous over the gulf, but
opposite during the day on Sunday with most of the activity over
interior zones. With all of the convection this afternoon expected
to continue into the early evening hours tonight, residual outflow
boundaries will linger through the night and into Sunday morning,
providing a low level focus for additional convective development,
especially during the day on Sunday. A few strong storms with gusty
winds and locally heavy rainfall can be expected. As far as
temperatures go, lows tonight will be at or just above normal for
this time of the year and highs on Sunday around or just below
normal. 12 ds
short term Sunday night through Tuesday night ... Scattered to
numerous showers and thunderstorms can be expected again on Monday
as an upper trough approaches the area and a moist southwest flow
pattern continues. The trough and associated sfc front moves
toward the area Tuesday bringing another round of scattered to
numerous showers and storms to the area. The front moves toward
the coast Tuesday night. The combination of the approaching
trough and plenty of deep layer moisture (pw values over 2 inches)
will lead to a continued threat of locally heavy rain through
Tuesday. 13
long term Wednesday through Saturday ... The front moves offshore
and the upper trough moves east of the area on Wednesday with
decreasing rain chances. Some drier air moves into northern
portions of the area on Thursday with small rain chances
lingering across southeastern areas. Moisture returns to the
region on Friday and Saturday with scattered showers and
thunderstorms returning to the forecast. 13
marine... A surface ridge of high pressure will extend from the
western atlantic to the central gulf of mexico through early next
week. A light to occasionally moderate south to southwesterly wind
flow will continue with this pattern through early Tuesday. By
Wednesday, a weak trough frontal boundary will drift south to the
gulf coast and perhaps offshore over the coastal waters, with a
light to moderate offshore flow developing. Little change in seas
expected through the period. Winds and seas will be locally higher
near scattered to occasionally numerous showers and thunderstorms.

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.
