Short term (today and tonight) A trough axis is moving across
the region early this morning with broad upper divergence helping
to produce a band of showers. This area will be across southwest
virginia/northeast tennessee around 12z. Behind this axis, the
upper trough along with marginal instability will produce
scattered showers and afternoon thunder. Since upper forcing is
lifting northeast away from the area this afternoon and
instability is marginal, only expect isolated strong storms
possible.

Model soundings do show a boundary layer jet of 25-35kts remaining
today with some mid-level dry air, so strong gusty winds are
possible.

For tonight, enough instability remains, so will continue with a
chance of showers, but most locations will remain dry. Patchy fog
is possible, especially plateau and southwest north carolina.

Long term (Monday through Saturday) Will remain in an unsettle
weather pattern through much the extended as the first of two
weather systems pushes into the southern appalachian region for
Monday and Tuesday. This system does have sufficient low level
moisture and weak lift and expect the atmosphere to become weakly
unstable for scattered convection to develop. Overall... Do not
expect this to be a significant event but can not rule out a stray
strong storm. A few showers may linger across the area Tuesday
night as the system pulls out of the area. By Wednesday... We will
basically be between systems for a dry for mid week. Models
continue to show differences by the end of the period but do expect
to see another system move in around the Thursday/Friday time frame
providing our next round of convection with a few lingering
showers into Saturday as the system exits the region.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
