Aviation [06z TAF issuance]
Not a lot of changes from previous forecast with similar trends
expected for weds afternoon. Shra tsra development should begin
along near the coast late Wed morning... Spreading inland by the
afternoon. Have kept iah as the northernmost site for vcts, but
would not be too surprised if site north of there see some act-
ion (mainly uts cxo) before all said and done. Activity will be
diminishing by Wed evening with the loss of daytime heating. 41

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.
