304 pm cdt Sun sep 15 2019
An upper low over the mid west gulf of mexico will continue to
move off to the west through the early part of the workweek.
Showers and a few thunderstorms associated with this feature will
mainly impact the coastal waters and the more coastal land areas
through Monday, with the greatest concentration across the
western half of the coastal waters. Otherwise, mid upper level
ridging will prevail across the gulf states during the week with
temperatures continuing to run above normal and rain chances below
normal. This ridging may weaken somewhat over the weekend
allowing for slightly less hot temperatures. 11
Vfr conditions will generally prevail at the terminals through the
taf forecast period. An isolated shower may impact khum this
afternoon and tonight and most of the TAF sties on Monday. 11
The small craft advisory will be extended through tonight for the
coastal waters west of the mississippi river, while exercise
caution headlines will remain for the remainder of the open gulf
waters and chandeleur and breton sounds for the same time period.
A tight pressure gradient across the north gulf will persist
tonight before easing on Monday. Thereafter, winds across the
coastal waters will become light and variable at times for the mid
week period before increasing from the east again late in the
week. Scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms in
association with an upper low over the mid west gulf will continue
to impact the coastal waters into Monday. As this feature
continues to move off to the west early in the week, the
convection coverage will diminish. 11

The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
