Update
For 18z aviation.

Short term
Today and tonight.

A broad upper trof covered the eastern half of the united states.

A short wave trof will pass through alabama today and pull deeper
gulf moisture northeast across northern florida. The deeper
moisture will not likely get close enough to southeast alabama to
produce any rainfall. Some lingering mainly mid to high level
clouds will remain across east and southeast alabama today in
advance of the short wave trof, but drier air at the the mid
levels of the atmosphere will advect into central alabama, keeping
the area rain free today and tonight.

Low level cold air advection will increase today as the short wave
trof passes to the east of alabama. Temperatures will be cooler
than yesterday due north winds around 10 mph. With mostly clear
skies and light winds tonight, temperatures will likely fall below
freezing for areas along and north of i-59.

Long term
Thanksgiving day through Tuesday.

An elongated upper-level trough is expected to extend from the
ohio valley southward over alabama and the gulf of mexico on
thanksgiving day. At the surface, an area of broad and weak low
pressure should be located across the eastern gulf of mexico with
cool high pressure to the northwest. Rain associated with the low
pressure system will affect the florida panhandle, south georgia,
and possibly extreme southeast alabama. The forecast for our
coverage area currently remains dry for thanksgiving day, but a
few stray showers could sneak into our far southeast counties.

Behind this system, rain-free conditions will prevail on Friday.

Northwest flow aloft will bring a dry cold front our way on
Saturday into Saturday night. Temperatures should be noticeably
cooler on Sunday with highs 5-8 degrees cooler than Saturday.

Widespread low to mid 30s are expected for morning lows on Monday
as high pressure moves into the region. A warming trend should
begin on Monday afternoon and continue into Tuesday as higher
heights move into the region.

Vfr conditions tonight and evening. Surface high pressure builds
toward the southeast today, with winds remaining out of the north at
6-10kts this afternoon. Early Thursday morning, low level winds
become easterly, allowing for weak moisture and lift to spread into
portions of east central alabama. MVFR CIGS will be possible, with
the best at asn, anb, mgm and toi.

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.
