return on Friday. Vcsh can be expected by the afternoon. 13

Prev discussion issued 359 pm cdt Thu oct 18 2018
near term now through Friday ... A broad upper ridge of high
pressure stretching from the western atlantic, mostly east of
central and lower fl, to the tx coast will begin to shift east on
fri mostly in response to a deepening short wave trof digging
southward over the ms river valley and northeast conus. Near the
surface a broad ridge of high pressure stretching from the central
plains states to the mid atlantic coast is also progged to shift
east and sink southward on Fri helping better moisture over the se
conus and western atlantic to slowly advect west across the deep
south and northern gulf mostly during the day on fri. To the west
as the main upper short wave to the northwest begins to dig
southward better moisture to the west ahead of the mid level
system will also begin to shift east and south towards the north
central gulf coast. With this pattern expect increasing clouds
from the east and north during the day on Fri with isolated to
scattered showers developing to the southeast shifting northwest
towards lower parts of the forecast area by Fri afternoon. With
limited forcing aloft combined with limited surface based
instability and moisture in the boundary layer the bulk of the
precip tomorrow will be in the form of light to moderate showers
with maybe an isolated thunderstorm or two generally along the
coast and offshore, occurring during the afternoon hours during
max heating. For tonight moisture levels remain rather low
limiting the threat for fog development late tonight through early
fri morning. Hi res model data and current MOS output also
support this reasoning.

Temperatures will still be slightly above seasonal norms with lows
tonight ranging from the upper 50s to lower 60s for most inland
areas and the middle 60s closer to the coast. Highs Fri will range
from the lower to middle 80s for most inland areas and the lower
80s near the immediate coast. 32 ee
short term Friday night through Sunday night ... The large upper
level high pressure system centered the bahamas Friday evening
will shift southward and become centered over cuba by Sunday
morning, as a strong upper level trough digs southeast from south
central canada and the upper midwest over the entire eastern
conus. Weak surface high pressure across the deep south will
remain through Friday night as a strong cold approaches from the
north. This cold front will then move south through the forecast
area Saturday afternoon into early evening. Isolated to low-end
scattered showers are expected ahead of cold front Friday evening
through noon Saturday. The best chance of rain will occur Saturday
afternoon just ahead and along the front, with a 40-50 percent
chance of showers and perhaps a few thunderstorms, with rain
tapering off from north to south into early Saturday evening.

The large upper trough over the eastern CONUS moves off into the
western atlantic through Sunday as a dome of cool high pressure
builds from the plains into the eastern states. Clearing skies
and cool temperatures will return through the remainder of the
weekend in the wake of the cold front. Low temperatures Saturday
night will dip to around 50 degrees inland to the mid 50s near the
coast, and Sunday night will be even cooler with lower 40s well
inland ranging to lower 50s at the coast. Highs on Sunday will be
in the mid 60s to lower 70s. 22
long term Monday through Thursday ..The surface high pressure
area centered over the mid atlantic states will shift east
through early next week, resulting in the frontal boundary over
the gulf of mexico changing direction and moving back north as a
warm front. The dry conditions will likley persist through Monday.

A series of upper level impulses will move from west to east over
the region through midweek along the northern periphery of the
upper high, with the main shortwave approaching from the west late
next week. This will support a return of slight chance to chance
pops for Monday night through midweek, followed by a slight uptick
in rain chances on Thursday. Near seasonable temperatures are
expected Tuesday through Thursday. 22
marine... A moderate to occasionally strong northeast to easterly
wind flow will persist over the marine area through early fri. A
light easterly wind flow is expected late Fri through early Sat as
a surface ridge of high pressure over the mid atlantic states
shifts east over the western atlantic. Northerly winds and seas
will build late Sat through early Sun in the wake of a strong cold
front that moves south over the northern gulf early Saturday
night. A moderate to strong easterly flow is expected late Sunday
through early next week as a strong surface ridge of high pressure
in the wake of the front shifts east. 32 ee

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.
