Short term today through Friday
Southwest, increasingly diffluent, upper flow developing across the
region today through Friday as a strong closed upper low digs into
the southern plains and slowly turns east into the lower mississippi
valley. Appears the forecast area will remain mainly dry through the
day today, with precipitation spreading across tonight through
Friday. Sufficient instability for at least isolated thunder Friday.
Dynamics are strong and shear is marginal for organized severe
storms, but convection, especially across the far south, will need
to be watch on Friday for an isolated severe threat. Latest qpf
totals through the day Saturday are down a bit, and overall threat
for additional flooding is lower. However, soils remain wet and
streamflows elevated ahead of this system so any increase in
expected rainfall amounts will need to be watched closely as well.
Long term Friday night through Wednesday
The long term begins with the above mention storm system
continuing across the cwa. Models in better agreement with timing
and location of deepest moisture and instability. Have continued
with slight chance of thunder into Friday night as there remains
some instability across the cwa. This system finally pulls out by
Sunday leaving the rest of the long term mostly dry. Toward the
end of the long term models differ considerably as the ecmwf
develops an elongated trough over the mississippi valley spreading
moisture into the CWA by Wednesday night, and the GFS developing a
closed low over northern mexico leaving the CWA dry. Will continue
with a dry forecast for now at the end of the long term.

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.
