Aviation
00z TAF discussion:
a cold front is moving across the forecast area this evening.

Expect shra and MVFR ceilings to be common, especially north of
the jan to mei corridor early with precipitation ending late
tonight. Will need to monitor for some fog potential in the
hbg pib area during the early morning should wind mixing decrease
enough. Also, reduced ceilings could be an issue during the
morning, but expectVFR conditions for the entire area by
afternoon along with gusty northwest surface wind as mixing
increases. Ec

Discussion
Tonight and Friday:
visible satellite imagery showing back edge of convective plume
approaching the i55 corridor as only a few showers left of exiting
mcs over southeast ms. Other showers were noted on radar this
afternoon over northern and western portions of the area in close
proximity to the mid level cold core low spinning over ar. Expect
these showers to continue through the remainder of the afternoon
then diminish after sunset with the loss of heating.

Cooler drier air will begin building into the area this evening
behind a cold front, currently traversing the forecast area. Some
cloud cover will linger this evening, but as depth of drier air
increases, clouds will diminish from the west after midnight.

Mostly sunny skies will prevail Friday, though surface winds may be
a bit gusty in the cool air advection behind the boundary,
especially over the arklamiss delta region. Gg
Saturday through Wednesday:
surface high pressure will govern the weather on Saturday.

Ridging aloft tries to build in but a shortwave is projected to
eject into the upper-mississippi valley. This shortwave is
expected to track through the upper midwest and then eastward on
Sunday. A weak surface boundary trailing from this system could
fall a bit into our CWA on Sunday. The models differ on how far
south the front makes it until it eventually stalls and
dissipates. Should the front make it partly into our region, temps
on the backside of the front will be a bit cooler than ahead of
it and there may be some weak convection that pops up along the
boundary during the day Sunday. Due to the uncertainty of where
the front will lie though, temps and pops for Sunday are a bit
uncertain as well. For now, highs in the lower 80s are forecast
for along and south of i-20 with highs in the upper 70s north of
i-20.

Ridging will build over the gulf and the southeast u.S. Early next
week. This will lead to warming, late-spring-like temperatures.

Southerly surface flow will bring moisture and pws above 1 inch to
the region. Temps in the mid 80s with dewpoints in the mid 60s will
bring a hint of summer to the area beginning on Monday. As the upper
flow begins to amplify by mid-week, the next round of rain looks to
move in the second half of next week. 10

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
