454 am cst Wed dec 12 2018

Near term now through Wednesday night A dry zonal flow pattern
aloft is in place across the central gulf coast region early this
morning with surface high pressure also building across the area.

Temperatures are near to slightly below freezing over much of the
area early this morning, except slightly warmer near the beaches.

Some very patchy fog has developed across a few locations near the
coast, but most locations are reporting good visibility as of 4 am
cst. Expect fog to remain quite patchy in nature and lift prior to 9
am cst.

The dry zonal flow pattern will continue over the area today, before
mid level flow becomes more southwesterly by tonight ahead of the
next trough that will be deepening over the rocky mountains. Surface
high pressure will meanwhile shift eastward across the southeastern
states and adjacent western atlantic through tonight, allowing for a
return southerly flow to develop across our region. Dry weather is
expected through this afternoon, but cloud cover should continue to
increase as the day progresses. Weak isentropic ascent may develop
near the coast tonight underneath southwest flow aloft, and we will
keep a slight chance of rain in the forecast mainly south of a new
augusta, ms to navarre, fl line. We may also have to monitor for
patchy fog development across portions of the area again tonight as
low level moisture increases. Slightly warmer temperatures are
expected today, with highs generally ranging from around 60 to the
mid 60s across the region. Increasing low level moisture should
bring warmer overnight lows tonight with readings in the mid 40s to
around 50 over the interior, and in the 50s near the immediate
coast. 21

Short term Thursday through Friday night An upper trough
moves across the southern plains and forms a deep upper low over
texas on Thursday. An associated sfc low occludes while moving
eastward. Strong deep layer lift will spread across the area from
the west starting Thursday afternoon through Thursday night. This
will bring widespread showers and some thunderstorms to the area.

Only weak destabilization is expected ahead of this system due to
the lack of significant modification of the airmass. As a result,
only weak CAPE values are expected along the coast and this is
where SPC has outlined a marginal risk of severe thunderstorms.

The main threat will likely be locally heavy rain. The heavy rain
will move east of the area Thursday night, however the upper low
will slowly move across the area on Friday. This will keep
conditions cloudy with scattered showers. 13

Long term Saturday through Tuesday Dry conditions continue
through the extended period as the large, deep system continues
eastward away from the area and into the western atlantic.

Temperatures will be near or slight below seasonable values
through the period, roughly near 40 at night and around 60 each
day. 13

Marine Surface high pressure will build across the eastern gulf
of mexico today, allowing winds to become southeasterly to southerly
over the marine area. Onshore flow will strengthen tonight into
Thursday night as the gradient increases between high pressure
shifting into the western atlantic and a low pressure system and
cold front approaching from the west. Wind speeds will likely
increase to small craft advisory levels Thursday into Thursday
night, with seas also building to 7-10 feet offshore. Small craft
advisory issuance will likely become necessary later today or
tonight. We may also have to monitor for near gale force gusts well
offshore by Thursday night. Showers and a few storms will spread
over the marine area ahead of the approaching front Thursday and
Thursday night, and a few storms could become strong to marginally
severe. Moderate to strong westerly flow and rough seas will
continue Friday into early Saturday, followed by moderate offshore
flow and subsiding seas this weekend. 21

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.
