Discussion
This evening through Thursday:
in the wake of today's cold front passage, some light to moderate
rainfall will continue into the evening across parts of the forecast
area. Will hold onto the limited flash flood threat in our hazardous
weather outlook just a little while longer until the last of the
moderate rainfall winds down this evening. As the axis of an upper-
level trough passes overhead this evening, rain chances will quickly
drop off from west to east. Subsidence in the wake of the trough
will help to erode low clouds overnight, and this should allow for
temperatures in northern and western parts of the forecast area to
dip into the upper-20s by tomorrow morning. The pine belt may hang
onto temperatures closer to the freezing mark if low clouds persist
closer to sunrise. Building surface high pressure will usher in dry
and sunny weather for Thursday. High temperatures expected to be
around 45 to 50 degrees (or around 10 degrees below normal for late
january). Nf
Thursday night through next Tuesday:
a general west to west northwest flow aloft will remain over the
region through much of the forecast period. High pressure at the
surface building into the region in the wake of Wednesday's front,
will result in a cold dry airmass over the forecast area as we begin
the long term period. A reinforcing shot of cold dry air will advect
into the region on Friday, as strong high pressure builds in behind
another cold front that races southeast through the CWA late
Thursday night into Friday morning. Other than a slight increase in
northwest winds and an increase in clouds over the area during this
time, no precipitation is currently expected to accompany the
passage of this cold front.

High pressure at the surface quickly builds into and through the
region Friday and through the weekend. Winds will become more
west southwesterly allowing conditions to warm a bit Saturday into
Sunday. A weakening boundary will drop south into the region on
Sunday, but again looks to currently result in only a slight
increase in cloud cover over the cwa.

Through the course of the day Monday and into Tuesday, conditions
will continue to moisten over the area. By late in the day Monday
and overnight, rain chances will increase as another cold front is
currently advertised to shift east through the region. Rain will
gradually exit the eastern half of the CWA through Tuesday morning,
as high pressure and another cold dry airmass advects southeastward
into the lower mississippi river valley. 19 27

Aviation
18z TAF discussion:
ifr and MVFR conditions prevailing across the region to start the
period as areas of light to moderate rain and low stratus are
restricting ceilings and visibility. Some +ra will be possible at
times before 00z Thursday, causing brief periods of ifr or lower
visibility. Conditions will gradually improve from west to east
throughout the period as drier air brings and end to precipitation
and the stratus layer breaks up and clears out. Nf

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.
