Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 245 am edt Mon mar 18 2019
big bubble, no trouble today and tonight as surface high pressure
settles into the region from the northwest. Light northwest winds at
the surface and aloft will usher in cooler air, keeping highs in the
upper 40s to lower 50s today with just a few flat cumulus developing
The cumulus will dissipate as the Sun sets, allowing temperatures to
fall quickly into the upper 20s to lower 30s late this evening
before cirrus moving in after midnight puts a halt to the radiative
Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)

seasonably mild and mostly quiet weather is expected for most of the
An upper shortwave trof diving through the great lakes will phase
with an impulse moving SE from the plains into the tennessee valley
on Wednesday. Not much instability to speak of and it will take
quite a while to tap into any substantial moisture, so it looks like|
a moderate probability, low QPF event. Pops will remain in the
chance range with no mention of thunder.
By the weekend an upper low will close off over the high plains,
while upper ridging and low-level return flow will start to bring
moisture northward into the ohio valley. Slower solutions are
usually the correct ones in this pattern, so will not ramp pops up
too much. However, chance pops will come into play late Sunday as
impulses ejecting out of the system to our west could trigger
precip. Will also limit pops to chance, but if we do get rain the
qpf will be more substantial than with the midweek system.

dry high pressure will keep skies mainly clear through the valid taf
period. NW winds less than 10 kt this afternoon, then going light
and variable after sunset. Could see a few flat, high-based CU this
afternoon, but no restrictions to ceiling or vis.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. 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.
