Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
00z issuance...VFR conditions to prevail through most of the
forecast period. A brief period of MVFR conditions possible due
to fog at bfm and mob around sunrise. 08

Prev discussion issued 347 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
near term now through Monday ... Low clouds will continue to
dissipate across the area this evening, with passing high clouds
expected to continue. As temps cool tonight, patchy fog will
develop with some dense fog possible late. The greatest
probability of dense fog will be across northern zones. A
shortwave upper ridge will build across the area on Monday. This
will maintain dry conditions with partly cloudy skies as high
clouds will continue to spill over the ridge from the west. Highs
on Monday will generally be in the low 60s depending on how long
it takes the fog low clouds to dissipate. 13
short term Monday night through Wednesday night ... The upper
ridge of high pressure will extend from the forecast area south
central canada Monday evening, and then shift eastern as a large
upper trough digs over the southern plains and mexico late Monday
night and Tuesday. This large upper trough will then become highly
amplified as it shifts eastward, and will extend from south
central canada to the bay of campeche by late Wednesday night. A
deep southwest wind flow will bring moisture and clouds back over
the forecast area midweek as the large upper trough to our west
approaches the region.

Meanwhile, a surface high pressure area over the eastern conus
will shift eastward over the western atlantic by noon Wednesday,
setting up a return flow with low level moisture returning
midweek. A weak surface low associated with the upper trough is
expected to develop over the region Wednesday night. The dry
weather conditions across the forecast area will persist through
Tuesday night, followed by increasing coverage in light to
moderate rain Wednesday afternoon and evening. The highest rain
chances will occur Wednesday night, with likely to definite
categories forecast. 22
long term Thursday through Sunday ... The upper trough will move
over the region by late by late Thursday, and eventually shift
east of the area by late in the week. The weak surface low
associated with the upper trough is expected deepen across the
southeast states to 992mb by late Thursday night, and then lift
northward up the appalachian mountains Friday and Friday night.

The rain will taper off from west to east Thursday morning, but
wrap-around moisture will keep mainly scattered light rain
showers across the area Thursday and Thursday night. The light
rain will come to end throughout the day Friday. Rainfall amounts
with this system are expected to range from one-half to one inch,
although locally higher amounts between one to two inches are
possible east of i-65. Dry conditions will resume Friday night and
over the weekend as high pressure builds back in from the west.

22
marine... A light to occasionally moderate northerly flow will
continue over the marine area through early Tuesday as high
pressure moves east. A moderate southerly flow develops on
Wednesday ahead of an approaching cold front. In the wake of the
front, a strong west to northwest flow will develop on Thursday
and continue through Friday. 13

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.
