dissipated. Meanwhile, cont to monitor MCS apchg WRN ar early this
mrng. Convection acrs ERN ok conts to show a gradual weakening trend.
Hi-res model data has also been consistent in showing this as well.
Otherwise, benign wx conds noted acrs the fa this mrng.
The ongoing MCS to our west is cont to weaken thru the mrng hrs as
the remnants work further into ar. However, the hi-res model data
cont to offer varying solutions regarding convective trends later

With the expected weakening trend of the apchg convection later this
mrng, have trended pops downward acrs the fa durg the late mrng into
the early aftn hours. Opted to lower high temps today a few degrees
fm current fcst, as plenty of higher lvl clouds are expected to
limit aftn heating somewhat.
Heading into late aftn, another round of storms is fcst to form,
primarily in the vcnty of any leftover bndrys fm the mrng storms.
The south half of the fa still appears to be the focus for later
development, where greater instability wl be maximized. Damaging|
wind gusts and large hail looks to the primary concerns.
Rain chances wl gradually diminish over the fa later tngt and Thu as
the aforementioned upr trof shifts E of ar, and a weak cdfnt drops
into ar fm the n.
Long term... .Friday through Tuesday
not too many changes are needed to the current long term forecast as
the models remain in decent agreement in the synoptic scale. Per
usual, the models are having some timing and intensity issues with
the smaller scale and a blend of models will continue to be used.
Pattern will definitely be turning more summer like during the first
part of the period as upper level ridging starts to build over the
southeast united states and becomes the dominant weather feature.
The ridge axis is looking to set up just to the east of the area in
the central gulf with southerly flow getting pretty much locked in.
This will keep very warm and humid conditions over the area with
afternoon heat indices very close to the century mark. Pattern is
not conducive to producing widespread precipitation but isolated to
widely scattered convection can not be discounted during peak
Rain chances ramp up Saturday night and into Sunday morning as the
models continue to hint at a complex of thunderstorms trying to get
organized. Specific details with this complex continue to change but
its evolution will be watched.
Overall pattern starts to become more active Sunday night when the
next trough moves out of the rockies and into the central plains.
Thunderstorms return Sunday night through the remainder of the
period. Model differences preclude introducing pops greater than the
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.

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.
