12z issuance...VFR conditions will prevail for the next 24 hours
under clear skies. West to northwest winds 12 to 17 knots, with
gusts between 20 to 25 knots, will occur throughout the day. The
west to northwest winds will decrease to 3 to 8 knots tonight.

Prev discussion issued 444 am cdt Sat apr 20 2019
near term now through Saturday night ... Surface high pressure
over the southern plains and western gulf of mexico will shift
eastward over the southeast CONUS and eastern gulf of mexico over
the next 24 hours. The axis of an upper trough extending from the
ohio river valley to the yucatan peninsula will shift eastward as
well, with early morning cloud cover over alabama and the western
florida panhandle clearing from west to east. Expect plenty of
sunshine today along with a cool west to northwest wind. Light
winds and a strong radiational window will allow much cooling
temperatures to occur tonight.

High temperatures today will be 4 to 9 degrees below normal,
ranging from the mid 60s to lower 70s. Low temperatures tonight
will be 9 to 14 degrees below normal, ranging from the upper 30s
to mid 40s, with the exception of the upper 40s to lower 50s at
the beaches. 22
short term Sunday through Monday night ... An upper level ridge
builds as it moves east over the mississippi river valley into the
coming week. A surface ridge stretching north from surface high
pressure centered north of the north-central gulf coast shifts east
to along the eastern seaboard in response, bringing a return of
southerly flow in the low levels and the beginning of gulf moisture
returning to the region. Temperatures moderate upwards into the
coming week due to the influence of the upper ridge. Highs rise from
a bit below seasonal norms on Sunday (mid 70s along the coast to
upper 70s inland) to a bit above for Monday (upper 70s along the
coast to mid 80s inland). Lows rise from the mid to upper 40s Sunday
night to low to mid 50s for Monday night, closer to seasonal norms.

16
long term Tuesday through Friday ... In the extended, an upper
shortwave system that has moved over the desert southwest moves
slowly east over the southern plains to near the lower mississippi
river valley by Thursday, with divergence in the guidance beginning
to show (in speed and organization) amongst the medium range
guidance by Wednesday night. From there, the difference in the
models begin to expand in speed and organization, leading to
issues in the timing of the rain ending, along with any strong to
severe weather.

For Tuesday into Wednesday night, the influence of the upper ridge
continues to dominate the forecast, even as it shifts to the eastern
seaboard. Temperatures a bit above seasonal norms continue, with
highs in the low to mid 80s each day. Overnight lows warm from
the mid 50s to around 60 Tuesday night the mid 60s Wednesday night
as southerly flow of the gulf continues to bring gulf moisture
inland over the regions along with increasing cloud cover. Rain
begins to approach the forecast area from the west Wednesday
night. Timing of the rain beginning is in decent agreement amongst
the guidance as rainshowers being to move over western portions
of the forecast area Wednesday night, though the ecmwf's slower
speed of the system's movement is beginning to show.

Thursday through Friday, the GFS begins to accelerate the eastward
speed of the upper system, bringing the heaviest rain to the area
Thursday and ending the rain over the forecast area by the end of
the day Friday. The slower movement advertised by the ECMWF (along
with being a more organized system) paints the rain ending early in
the coming weekend, along with the heaviest rain occurring
Thursday night through Friday. The longer period of rain brings a
chance of water issues at the end of the forecast. Looking at
other modes of severe weather, at this point, the system's passage
remains instability limited in the guidance. The better
organization of the system in the ECMWF brings a small chance of
strong to severe weather at the end of the forecast, though, as
apposed to the more disorganized GFS solution in the current run
advertising an almost negligible chance of severe weather. Will
continue to monitor, though, with the possibility of greater
instability developing over the region ahead of the system along
with a more organized system as it passes leading to a better
chance of strong to severe storms.

16
marine... A moderate to strong west to northwest wind flow will
persist through today. Winds and seas will decrease tonight into
Sunday as surface high pressure settles across the region. A light
onshore wind flow will develop Sunday afternoon and continue through
midweek as the high pressure moves east of the area. 22

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.
