Yellow Bluff, AL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion Updated for latest aviation discussion below.

Aviation
12z issuance...VFR conditions are expected to prevail across the
region today with scattered to broken mid and high level clouds,
and a few cumulus. Isolated shra tsra may develop around portions
of the area this afternoon but coverage will be limited and
confidence remains low enough to preclude mention in the local
tafs. Light winds are generally expected through the period, but
winds may pick up to around 10 knots from the south to southwest
near the coast this afternoon. 21

Prev discussion issued 439 am cdt Tue jun 19 2018
near term now through Tuesday night ... A mid level ridge of high
pressure will remain positioned over much of al, ga, and fl today.

Weak surface ridging is expected to extend from southeast la and
northward through much of ms and into western tn today, while a weak
surface trough axis meanwhile stretches southwestward from the
carolinas to the central gulf coast. A moist airmass will remain in
place across our forecast area today underneath the mid level ridge,
with precipitable water values ranging from 1.8" over our eastern
cwa to as high as 2.0" to 2.1" over southeast ms. The combination of
the moist airmass, plentiful instability, and weak convergence along
the surface trough axis seabreeze should result in the development
of a few showers and thunderstorms today. The coverage will be
limited due to the ridge aloft over the central and eastern zones,
but may be locally scattered over portions of southeast ms where
moisture will be deeper on the western periphery of the ridge. The
combination of the ridge aloft and enhanced low level thermal
ridging along the surface trough axis should allow for high
temperatures in the lower to mid 90s over much of the region.

Maximum heat indices should reach the upper 90s to around 103.

Convection should be diminished by early evening and will keep pops
below mentionable levels after 7 pm. Another seasonably warm and
humid night can otherwise be expected. 21
short term Wednesday through Thursday night ... An upper ridge
over the area gradually weakens and shifts southward as and upper
trough develops across the plains. Shortwaves ejecting out of the
upper trough and moving eastward around the northern edge of the
upper ridge will bring increasing chances for rain by Thursday.

The passing upper waves will combine with plenty of deep layer
moisture and daytime heating to bring scattered showers and
thunderstorms back into the forecast by Thursday afternoon. Heat
index values will top out in the 100-104 range in most areas each
afternoon. 13
long term Friday through Monday ... A broad upper trough will
remain over the southeast on Friday as the plains system lifts
out. This will maintain the chances for scattered showers and
thunderstorms. The trough lifts out on Saturday with upper ridging
building back over the area through Monday. This will return the
area to a more typical isolated to low-end scattered diurnal pop
pattern. Highs will remain in the low 90s with heat index values
in the 100-105 range each day. 13
marine... Weak surface ridging will extend across the eastern and
northern gulf of mexico through early next week. This pattern will
result in a general light to moderate onshore flow through Monday.

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.
