Short term Tonight through Wednesday night
data from local radars indicate a few convective cells remaining
in the forecast area, with much more widespread activity noted to
the east of the area. Any remaining cells will diminish shortly
Cold front now pushing into central sections of the state is
expected to stall across southern sections late tonight. This
feature, while weakening, may still be able to focus widely
scattered convection Tuesday afternoon.
Another strong upper level system will approach the mid-south on
Wednesday. Some similarities are noted between forecast model
output, and characteristics of the system that affected the region
late Friday. More moisture is forecast to be associated with this
particular system, and much more precipitation is expected.
Long term Thursday through Monday
even though convection will be winding down, rain chances will
linger into the long term as moisture wraps around the departing
system. Additional rainfall amounts will be under half an inch. By
the weekend, sunshine will make an appearance as ridging returns.
Temperatures through the weekend will be in the 60s/70s with
overnight lows in the 40s/50s. Model spread increases towards the
end of the weekend as the next round of convection unfolds. ECMWF is
a bit more progressive pushing the bulk of the rainfall through on
Sunday night, while the GFS holds most of the convection back until
Monday. Went with a blend for now, staying conservative with the

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.
