Short term
Today and tonight.

This am, we have a 1031mb surface ridge elongated across the gulf
coast states with clear skies and still much below normal
temperatures across alabama. Ridging will continue through tonight
but weaken some with the center shifting to the east. In the
upper levels, a large southern tier shortwave over texas will push
east through tonight toward louisiana and mississippi. However,
with our already very dry airmass in place, only some shallow mid
level moisture cloudiness is expected during the afternoon into
tonight. Otherwise, for today, we are expecting our airmass to
continue to moderate with milder temperatures expected this
afternoon and tonight with light westerly low level flow.

Long term
Saturday through Thursday.

Clouds may increase on Saturday as a shortwave moves across the
region. Westerly flow around 850mb will be responsible for warm
advection and potential cloudiness, which may keep temperatures
from getting as warm as some models indicate. Our forecast is a
bit of a hedge between the cloudy and cooler NAM vs the warmer
ecmwf gfs. In the midst of a progressive pattern, the shortwave
should move eastward on Sunday and take the clouds along with it.

Meanwhile, a deep-layer ridge will shift eastward across the
region in advance of a strong plains trough. Temperatures on
Sunday afternoon could approach 70f in the south with mainly mid
60s elsewhere.

Height falls are expected on Monday with the approaching trough,
and moisture return should be sufficient for widespread shower
activity along a cold front. This system should move through
rather quickly with dry and relatively mild weather returning for
Tuesday through Thursday.

06z TAF discussion.

High pressure and a very dry atmosphere will produceVFR
conditions the next 24 hours. High pressure slowly moves over the
state and winds will be light and generally westerly.

Fire weather
Rh values will fall to around 25 percent for a couple hours this
afternoon. However, winds will be light, thus critical fire
weather conditions are not expected. Moisture will increase over
the weekend.

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.
