Update
For 12z tafs.

Near term (today)
issued at 343 am cdt Wed jun 19 2019
fairly quiet wx conditions prevail across the cntrl tn valley this
early Wed morning, with area radars indicating just a couple of
sporadic showers around parts of NE al. There are a couple of
decaying tstms over cntrl al, but these do not look to affect the
immediate area in the short term. Thick cloud cover also continues to
spread ewd into the mid tn valley, as a potent storm system over the
srn plains begins to approach the lower ms valley. Latest model runs
are not all together consistent with the transition of this upper
wave to the east, as the energy becomes somewhat disorganized and the
timing slows as it attempts to move into the area later today. A weak
sfc wave attendant frontal boundary is also xpcted to lift ene into
the oh valley this afternoon.

Modest dynamic lift forcing provided by the passing upper disturbance,
coupled with a minimal low level convergent pattern south of the sfc
front, will provide a good focus mech for sct num showers tstms later
today. Increasing 0-8km bulk shear values near 40-50kt will result in
a threat for strong damaging winds within pulse clusters of storms.

However, much uncertainty remains involving the organization timing
of the upper wave out of the SRN plains later today. Latent heating
effects may also be a factor, with afternoon highs as of now xpcted
to climb into the mid upper 80s for most spots.

Short term (tonight through Friday night)
issued at 343 am cdt Wed jun 19 2019
some semblance of the upper disturbance is xpcted to be INVOF the
tn oh valley regions going into this evening. With the bermuda high
providing an ample supply of moisture into the SE region, sct num
showers tstms should continue thru the overnight hrs and into thu.

With latent heating effects xpcted to help afternoon temps again
climb into the mid 80s, coupled with the stagnant lifting mech in
place over the region, a marginal threat of strong damaging wind
gusts remains possible Thu afternoon, before overall wx conditions
begin to improve Thu night into fri. Latest model suites show the
upper wave lifting off to the NE by fri, with the stagnant front
becoming diffuse and weak high pressure briefly settling over the
gulf states. This should result in rain chances tapering off going
into the weekend period, as seasonably warm wx returns, with highs on
fri climbing well into the lower 90s for most spots. Lows are mainly
xpcted to be in the upper 60s near 70f.

Long term (Saturday through Tuesday)
issued at 343 am cdt Wed jun 19 2019
an upper-level high pressure ridge will continue to build into the
region this weekend, promoting partly sunny and warmer conditions as
southerly flow helps push highs back into the lower 90s. There will
be plenty of moisture underneath this ridge, allowing for a few
isolated to widely scattered diurnally driven storms in the
afternoon. However, subsidence from the ridge will help to limit
convection to this late day window and keep activity from becoming
widespread. By early next week, models hint at the ridge breaking
down and pushing SE into florida as another upper-trough looks to
swing across the ohio valley Monday into Tuesday. This system should
provide the necessary lift for greater coverage of showers and
thunderstorms both days, though we'll keep them at 50 percent given
the uncertainty of the timing of this trough. Additionally, cloud
cover will knock highs down a few degrees back into the mid 80s
during this period.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning)
issued at 646 am cdt Wed jun 19 2019
low clouds ifr conds are in place near the khsv terminal this wed
morning, although these clouds should be lifting within the next
couple of hrs. Otherwise, sct shra tsra are possible heading into the
afternoon hrs, as an upper disturbance moves into the region from the
west. As such, a vcts group has been maintained after 20-21z, with a
vcsh included after 01z to account for overnight precip. Sfc winds
are xpcted to turn towards the SW near 10kt with higher gusts by the
afternoon period.

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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
