overall, no significant changes were necessary to the previous
forecast package. Stratus has formed across most of the forecast
area as low level moisture remains trapped beneath inversion, except
for the southern coal fields and southwest virginia, where river
valley fog has developed. Thinking some breaks general clearing of
the stratus is possible today across the south, but much of the
northern zones should remain rather cloudy today overall.
Tonight, forecast remains challenging, but overall thinking cloud
cover will quickly increase towards morning, out ahead of next
approaching system. Could see some fog development early,
particularly across southern zones in the favored river valleys.
Overall, precipitation should stay north of the area during the near

the stationary front draped just north of the ohio valley will
be slow to drift south and pass through the CWA as a cold front.
It will take the upper flow aloft turning cyclonic once again

the upper level cyclonic flow holds for the front end of the

keeping november seasonally cool. However, the end of the week
signals a warming trend with upper ridging building across the

toVFR starts to take place from south to north. Light surface
winds during the period. Clouds will increase tonight but should

valleys, and southwest virginia where less cloud cover is
Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 12z Sunday...
forecast confidence: medium
alternate scenarios: timing of improvement toVFR on Saturday
may vary from forecast. More widespread river valley fog may
develop Saturday night than currently forecast.
Experimental table of flight category objectively shows consistency
of WFO forecast to available model information:
h = high: TAF consistent with all models or all but one model.
M = medium: TAF has varying level of consistency with models.
L = low: TAF inconsistent with all models or all but one model.

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.
