Short term (today through Thursday night)
issued at 243 am cst Tue dec 18 2018
we will start out today under high surface pressure and ridging
aloft. After below freezing temps this morning, peak afternoon
temps, though a bit cooler than yesterday, will be still above
seasonable averages. Scattered to broken cirrus clouds will be
around today, but not all the clouds will be opaque. Winds will
be light and variable, with a primarily easterly component.

Low level winds are forecast to turn to the southwest tonight, but
more significant changes are expected wed. Surface winds will
turn to the south after daybreak, and should be accompanied by
increasing cloud cover from southwest to northeast along with a
surge of moisture in the form of increasing dewpoints. Under this
warm advection pattern, highs should make it into the middle 50s.

A deep meridional trof is progged by the models to approach the
pah forecast area Wed night, introducing rain back into the
forecast, especially for the southern half of the region. Into
thu, most model solutions (namely the gfs) suggest a separate mid
level low will pinch off and head for the deep south. This
scenario would put us in a deformation zone of sorts to the north
of the low, which would tend to keep the rain shield fairly solid
during the day thu. Additional lift of moisture will be provided
by a north-south oriented surface cold front moving eastward
through the region. Model consensus suggests this will be a
fairly progressive system overall though, yielding rainfall totals
of less than an inch. No lightning is forecast in our region.

However this system evolves, a surface low will likely develop and
move through the tn valley on thu, setting up northwesterly gradient
winds late Thu and Thu night, with 30 mph gusts possible. A few
snowflakes may be in the air as the pcpn begins to come to an end
thu night.

Long term (Friday through Monday)
issued at 243 am cst Tue dec 18 2018
a deep trof over the region at the beginning of the period will move
east, bringing an end to any lingering precipitation, mainly rain,
but possibly a few snow flakes mixed in as well. Dry weather is
forecast Friday night through Monday as high pressure moves across
and then east of the area. Solutions diverge for Monday night. Ecmwf
shows a chance of precipitation, while the other models are dry.

Just have a slight chance of rain snow for now. Temperatures will
start off below normal Friday, then return to normal values for the
remainder of the long term.

Aviation
Issued at 243 am cst Tue dec 18 2018
areas of high cirrus clouds, some thin, will continue to overspread
the region through Tuesday. Although shallow ground fog cannot be
ruled out during the early morning hours, there is not enough
support to include mention in the tafs. Winds will be light,
mainly easterly.

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.
