Aviation [through 12z Sunday]
Vfr conditions are expected. Rain showers and possibly a few
thunderstorms will approach southeast alabama and the florida
panhandle in the late afternoon and evening hours. Light rain will
continue overnight for dhn, ecp, and aby. Southerly winds will be
gusty today especially near dhn and ecp.
Prev discussion [333 am edt]
Near term [through today]
In the upper levels a cut-off low will be over mo today. The
associated trough will move through the region overnight. At the
surface a low over mo will slowly move northeast. The associated
cold front will stay well to our north. As the trough moves across
ms and al a line of strong to severe thunderstorms will likely
develop. This line will likely weaken before it gets to this region
as the surface cold front weakens and daytime heating ends. Showers
and a few thunderstorms are likely in the late afternoon and evening
hours mainly in the florida panhandle and southeast alabama (where
cape up to 900 j/kg is expected). SPC has a marginal risk outlined
west of a line from dothan to panama city.
Southerly winds will be somewhat gusty today particularly in the
florida panhandle and southeast alabama. Highs will be in the upper
70s in areas with more cloud cover (southeast alabama and florida
panhandle). Highs will be near 80 elsewhere.
Short term [tonight through Monday]
Line of thunderstorms will make it into the western parts of the
cwa in the evening hours. Instability will decrease rapidly around
sunset and thereafter with deep layer shear around 30-40 knots.
With the marginal risk outlined above, there is a slight
possibility of strong to locally damaging winds across SE alabama
and the western florida panhandle early in the evening. The line
continues to weaken with time becoming more isolated early Sunday
morning. The mid level trough swings through Sunday morning but
enough moisture may hang around for isolated showers into Sunday
afternoon. Sunday night will be dry and in-between systems. Monday
will bring a fast moving system across the mississippi river
valley bringing a chance for showers across SE alabama and sw
georgia Monday afternoon. Highs for this period will mainly be in
the upper 70s to lower 80s.
Long term [Monday night through Saturday]
The early work week system will drag a cold front into the cwa
which will stall across the area Tuesday and Wednesday. This will
serve as a focus for showers and isolated thunderstorms to develop
Wednesday before the front moves back north as a warm Wednesday|
night. Thursday appears dry and in-between systems with the next
system impacting the area Thursday night into Friday. This system
bears watching as it will have better support with it as opposed
to the system earlier in the week.
Winds and seas will remain elevated today as a low pressure system
moves towards the area. This system will weaken through the day so
winds will be slowly decreasing into the afternoon hours.
Conditions will improve beginning Sunday with light to moderate
southeast winds and decreasing seas.
Rh values will stay above red flag criteria for the next several
days. Rain chances will increase late this afternoon in western
parts of the region.
Area rivers are well below flood stage currently. Storm total
rainfall associated with the next system will be around an inch or
less and the heaviest of these amounts will favor SE alabama and
the western florida panhandle. No flooding is expected with this

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.
