Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
00z issuance...VFR conditions to persist the next 24hrs. Axis of
high pressure moves over the central gulf coast overnight
resulting in a light variable to calm wind. 10

Prev discussion issued 329 pm cdt Fri mar 22 2019
near term now through Saturday ... Surface to h5 ridge centered
mostly over the lower ms river valley this afternoon will continue
to shift east across the northern gulf states through sat
afternoon in response to next mid level short wave trof tracking
eastward from the rockies to the central plains states through
late sat. With this pattern expect clear skies and cool temps
tonight due to good radiational cooling near the surface for most
inland locations followed by sunny skies and mild temps during the
day on sat. Humidity levels will continue to remain low in the
near term as dry air continues to advect south across the region
with a gradual increase in low level moisture along the coast
during the day on Sat due to a better onshore flow setting up
during the afternoon hours.

Tonights lows will continue to cool to about 5 to 8 degrees below
seasonal norms ranging from lower to middle 40s for most inland
areas and the upper 40s to lower 50s near the immediate coast. Highs
sat will be a few degrees above seasonal norms ranging from the mid
70s for most inland areas and the upper 60s to lower 70s along the
immediate coast. 32 ee
short term Saturday night through Monday night ... Shortwave
ridging aloft will shift eastward toward the eastern seaboard
Saturday night into Sunday morning as the next shortwave trough
translates from the plains states toward the mid-mississippi
valley region. A dry mostly zonal flow pattern aloft will continue
across these two features into Sunday afternoon, with dry
conditions expected. The surface ridge of high pressure also
continues to shift eastward toward the eastern seaboard and
adjacent western atlantic into Sunday, allowing for a return
southerly flow across our region into Sunday afternoon. Another
cool night is expected for Saturday night, with lows in the mid to
upper 40s over interior areas, with readings around 50 to the mid
50s near the coast. Sunday should be a warm day with highs in the
lower 70s near the coast, and in the mid to upper 70s over
interior areas.

The aforementioned shortwave trough will lift across the tennessee
valley region on Sunday, but a more amplified trough axis will
progress east-southeastward across the mid-mississippi and
tennessee valley region Sunday night, then across ms al ga during
the day Monday. An associated surface cold front will push
southeastward across our forecast area Monday afternoon into
Monday evening. Short range guidance continues to indicate enough
ascent ahead of the approaching trough axis and frontal zone to
aid in the development of scattered to locally numerous showers
across our region, with the best chance of development favored
over our interior zones by Monday afternoon. There will also be
enough instability for a few thunderstorms, but the overall amount
of instability and shear should be limited enough to keep the
overall severe weather potential low Monday afternoon into early
Monday evening. A lingering chance of showers may continue into
Monday evening, before rain chances end by late Monday night
behind the front. Highs Monday will warm into the mid to upper
70s, while lows Monday night range in the upper 40s to lower 50s
inland, with mid to upper 50s near the coast. 21
long term Tuesday through Friday ... Dry northwest flow aloft
will prevail Tuesday into Wednesday night, before shortwave
ridging aloft develops over our region Thursday into Thursday
night. Dry weather will continue during this time frame. The next
chance of rain may return Friday into Friday night as moisture
gradually increases underneath developing southwest flow aloft.

21
marine... A light to moderate northerly flow early today will become
westerly this afternoon as high pressure to the northwest continues
to shift east. A southeasterly flow will develop over the weekend as
the ridge of high pressure to the north continues to shift east.

Southerly winds and seas will build by early next week in response
to a cold front approaching from the northwest. The cold front is
expected to move across the marine area Monday night into early
Tuesday leading to a moderate to strong northerly flow through
midweek. 32 ee

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.
