Synopsis
Issued at 333 am est Thu nov 23 2017
clouds will slowly move east this morning, leaving behind partly
cloudy skies this afternoon with highs topping out in the upper
30s to lower 40s. Clear skies will prevail tonight into Friday.

Increasing southwesterly winds will usher in high temperatures
into the 50s.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 333 am Thu nov 23 2017
shortwave working across the region with mid level clouds moving
slowly east. Regional and local radar showing returns, but 00z
soundings from upstream sites show plenty of dry air in place in
the lower levels, preventing any precipitation from reaching the
ground. While a stray flurry can't be ruled out, nothing worthy of
placing in forecast. Skies will slowly clear from west to east
this afternoon, with areas seeing sunshine reaching into the lower
40s versus upper 30s where clouds hold on. Clear skies tonight
will allow temps to drop below freezing.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 333 am est Thu nov 23 2017
series of progressively stronger troughs will move through the
region every couple of days, with above normal temperatures being
seen ahead of each one. Highs should reach into the 50s Friday and
again Tuesday into Wednesday with more seasonable temperatures
behind each cold front. The first front Friday night into early
Saturday will be lacking deep moisture, limiting precip to
possible some lighter showers across the north. Models continue to
vary on handling of deeper trough with northern and southern
stream energy never fully phasing. Precipitation chances, if any,
looks to reside just outside the long term period.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning)
issued at 549 am est Thu nov 23 2017
a weak mid level impulse embedded in west-northwest flow will
provide only mid level clouds this morning into the early
afternoon with clearing thereafter.VFR dry otherwise with some
uptick expected in southwesterly winds this afternoon.

In... None.

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.
