short term today through Saturday ...
relatively dry and quiet short term period in store with surface
high pressure and zonal flow aloft. A low pressure system will move
from the northwest gulf coast to the la ms ak area by late Friday,
and then over al by Saturday morning. Expect to see increasing mid-
level moisture associated with this system enter the state overnight
tomorrow night into Saturday morning, resulting in increased
Temperatures will continue to warm through the short term, with
temperatures expected to reach the 50s across the state today, and
then the mid 50s to low 60s on Saturday - certainly a welcome change
from this last week. Lows will also increase 8-10 degrees, but will
still bottom out in the 20s to low 30s Saturday morning.
Have continued to advertise frost in the grids for early this
morning and again Saturday morning due to the light winds and low
dew point depressions.
long term Saturday night through Thursday ...
the southern stream short wave moving across ga and off the
atlantic coast during the weekend should has limited moisture by
the time it reaches our area. Expect mainly an increase in
cloudiness. Models are consistent with bringing the next front
across the forecast area Monday and Monday night. The system looks
progressive and should be east of our area by Tuesday. A narrow
band of low CAPE should accompany the front so a mention of
isolated thunder mainly north and west looks reasonable. Both the
gfs and ECMWF keep the next short wave farther south in the gulf
than previous runs. So..Have kept only a small area of slight|
chance Wednesday night and Thursday for our southernmost counties.
Temperatures should range near or slightly above normal through
vfr conditions through the period. Expect increasing clouds after
15z Saturday, generally 4-5kft. Wsw-nw winds of 5-8kt expected
today, then 5kt or less overnight.

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.
