Update
Updated to include the 00z aviation discussion.

Aviation
Vfr prevails across northern terminals with MVFR to ifr
central south. Ra also persists near adf, pbf, and llq with this
trend holding through 17 10-12z, especially at southeastern
terminals. Expecting a gradual west-to-east improvement toVFR
through 17 18z as precip ends and lower CIGS gradually lift.

Winds remain northerly and should not exceed 10 kts through the
period. Some bouncy CIGS possible overnight, but overall forecast
confidence is high.

short term... Tonight thru Thursday...

light to moderate rain is persisting across much of the forecast
area, with the notable exception of nwrn ar. As surface high
pressure continues to build across the area, the low clouds and
precip should be pushed out of the area overnight.

With the drier surface air moving in, and a bit of ridging taking
place aloft, the area should be dry by tomorrow afternoon, with
temperatures rebounding a bit. Of note, the high temperature
forecast map for tomorrow looks to be upside down, with the
warmest temperatures in the state across the north, and the
coolest in the south. Of course the drier air filtering in across
the north will allow for much more sunshine in those areas,
resulting in the warmer temperatures.

Long term... Thursday night thru Monday night...

long term begins with an upper ridge of high pressure centered just
to the east of arkansas with a nearly closed low centered over the
four corners region of the country. Models continue to
show precipitation out ahead of a cold front moving towards arkansas
from the west. The main change to the forecast with this system was
to slow down the onset of the precipitation across the state.

Precipitation will push out of the state by Saturday morning with
drier air filtering in behind the cold front as surface high
pressure pushes south towards the region from the dakotas.

Weak ridging will be in place to start the new work week as surface
high pressure dominates our weather for much of the week with dry
weather and below normal temperatures continuing.

Lzk watches warnings advisories None.

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.
