Southerly winds will keep temperatures much above normal into
the early part of the weekend. An occluded front will move
through the area on Sunday bringing the next chance of
precipitation. Low pressure will track northeast into the
region Monday night.
Near term /through tonight/
Cumulus field developing into the region from the southwest this
afternoon should diminish this evening with the loss of heating
and also as the moist axis gets shunted off to the north.
However, there will be some increase in high clouds in the
latter part of the night. Pressure gradient will be sufficient
to keep southerly winds going through the night. Low
temperatures will be quite mild with readings close to normal
highs for this time of year.
Short term /Saturday through Saturday night/
A vertically stacked low pressure over the ozarks at the
beginning of the period will lift north northeast through
Saturday night. The forecast area will be in the warm sector
throughout. Cannot rule out a few showers or thunderstorms
across the western counties Saturday afternoon, but the chance
is quite low. The chance of showers and as well as some embedded
thunderstorms will increase late Saturday night as an occluded
front rotating around the low will be approaching from the
southwest. Temperatures will remain very warm. Forecast has gone
near or slightly above mos.
Long term /Sunday through Friday/
The upper level low will lift from the mid mississippi valley
to the eastern great lakes Sunday into Sunday night. The main
upper level trough axis will pivot up across our area through
Sunday afternoon along with an associated axis of more widespread
shower activity. This will also be accompanied with an area of
better instabilities so will continue to include a mention of
thunder through mid afternoon. As we get on the back side of
this axis, pcpn will taper back to scattered showers as we head
into Sunday evening. Highs on Sunday will be in the 60s.
Mid level ridging will move quickly east across the area
through Monday morning before another fast moving mid and upper
level trough axis pushes east across the area Monday afternoon
through Tuesday morning. This will bring another chance of
showers to the region. The better instabilities remain along and|
south of the ohio river, so will keep the best chance for any
thunder across southern portions of our fa. Highs on Monday
will be in the upper 60s to lower 70s, cooling to highs in the
60s by Tuesday.
Surface high pressure will nose down into the area from the
north as it slides east across the area Tuesday night into
Wednesday. This will result in dry but cooler conditions with
highs on Wednesday in the upper 50s to lower 60s. A weakening
upper level trough will lift out of the southern plains and
across the tennessee valley Thursday into Friday, bringing
another chance of showers through the end of the work week.
Highs on Thursday and Friday will be in the upper 50s to mid
Aviation /19z Friday through Wednesday/
Scattered to broken cumulus will occur through the early part of
the TAF period. Expect clouds to gradually diminish after 00z.
High clouds will overspread the area during the latter part of
the period with some diurnal cumulus developing on Saturday.
Gusty south winds at the start of the period will decrease with
the loss of heating. Winds will back slightly overnight but
maintain 5 to 10 kt. Southerly winds around 10 kt will prevail
Outlook... MVFR ceilings and visibilities as well as
thunderstorms are possible Saturday night into Sunday. MVFR
ceilings and visibilities will be possible again late Monday
into Tuesday morning.
long term... Jgl

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.
