UPDATE.

No significant changes planned for the update. Some patchy fog is forming in spots so far tonight and this trend should continue in to early Sun morning. Low-level moisture will increasing tomorrow with the return of onshore winds. 41

PREV DISCUSSION. /ISSUED 638 PM CST Sat Dec 7 2019/

AVIATION [00Z TAF Issuance] . VFR across the area this evening with SKC and light winds. Seabreeze working into the immediate coastal areas. Some increase in high clouds is going to occur tonight as the first of the Pacific moisture arrives. Temperatures should tumble tonight and expect some patchy fog to develop and for now will be carrying MIFG at the hubs and 2-5 miles at the usual suspects CXO/LBX/SGR. This could get lower and the SREF is trending that way. Stay tuned for the possibility of LIFR/VLIFR at short notice in the 10-13z window.

After sunrise moisture continues to spread into the area and will likely see a few/sct layer around 3000-4000ft. Sunday night late some potential for a MVFR deck to take shape and spread north and east through the region. 45

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.
