Update
Updated for 12z aviation discussion

Aviation
12z TAF discussion:
vfr conditions will prevail through the period. Light winds will
become more easterly than southeasterly this afternoon.

Discussion
Today and tonight: strong surface high pressure ridging will
prevail over the area today with clear skies and highs around 60
degrees. The surface high will continue to shift to the east
through the evening into the overnight hours, with the surface
flow becoming more southerly overnight. Another cold night is on
tap tonight with lows falling back into the low mid 30s over the
area. 15
Tuesday through Sunday: dry weather is expected through the period.

Temperatures will be warmer than normal Tuesday followed by cooler
than normal temperatures Wednesday through Friday morning before
warming above normal Friday afternoon through Sunday morning. Sunday
afternoon through next Monday morning will be cooler than normal
again.

Come Tuesday morning wl still have a dry airmass in place with pwats
below a half inch and surface dew points in the 30s. A surface ridge
will be nosing across our CWA from the northeast but the resulting
light return flow will have little time to moisten our airmass
before a deepening upper level trough drops from the upper
mississippi river valley to across the ohio river valley, sending a
dry cold front into our Tuesday night. In the wake of the cold front
a >1030mb high will drop over the central plains Wednesday.

Northwest flow aloft Wednesday will continue over our region through
the weekend. This will help the surface high shift southeast and
become centered over our CWA by Friday morning as it weakens. The
gulf will remain closed and our pwats will continue below a half
inch through Saturday morning. The coldest night of the period is
expected thanksgiving morning where lows will range from the upper
20s north to the mid 30s southeast. The weakened surface high will
shift east of our CWA Saturday allowing a light return flow and
temperatures to top out near 70f. Deep moisture will again have
little time to increase before another deepening upper level trough
over the eastern CONUS helps send a second dry cold front across our
cwa Saturday night. A return to cooler and drier than normal
conditions is expected Sunday into Monday. 22

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
