305 pm edt Fri mar 24 2017
Warmer weather returns with temperatures climbing well above normal
this weekend. Showers and thunderstorms Sunday/Sunday night, and
again late Monday into Tuesday.
Near term /through Saturday/
As of 140 pm Friday...
mainly quiet in the warm sector tonight and much of tomorrow.
There will be intervals of clouds through the period,
particularly late tonight and tomorrow morning. For temps, we
rolled on the high side of guidance tonight and tomorrow which
was well clustered to begin with. We may hit 80 along and south
of the i64 corridor if we can get enough Sun in the afternoon.
Short term /Saturday night through Monday/
As of 305 pm Friday...
a system will bring a band of showers and possibly thunderstorms
across the area on Sunday. Depending on the timing of the band and
how much recovery time occurs in the western counties, could see
some additional convection form late in the day.
The region stays in the warm sector as this system moves off to the
northeast, allowing for mild weather to continue.
Long term /Monday night through Friday/
As of 305 pm Friday...
another system will provide showers and possibly thunderstorms
Monday night and Tuesday. Behind a weak cold front, slightly cooler
but mild temperatures can be expected for mid week.
Models then show another system for the end of the week, but there
are differences in the timing and placement of this system, leading
to lower confidence.
Aviation /19z Friday through Wednesday/
As of 630 am Friday...
vfr through the period with some mid and high clouds in the warm|
sector. Generally light southwest flow tonight becoming
southerly on Saturday.
Forecast confidence and alternate scenarios through 18z Saturday...
forecast confidence: high.
Alternate scenarios: none.
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.

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.
