406 pm cdt Wed oct 16 2019
A cold front will slowly make its way through the area this
evening. Cloudy skies will continue through the evening hours but
we should clear out north to south, and you should feel a
temperature difference in the morning as temps should be in the
50s in the morning. Highs will only reach the lower 70s on
Thursday under clear conditions. As we move into Friday, all
guidance points to a surface low developing in the gulf and moving
towards the southeast united states. The national hurricane
center highlights an area with 50 percent chance of development
over the next few days. Impacts from this system will be highly
dependent on the track of the low. All guidance suggests that the
bulk of the rain and stronger onshore winds will be offset to the
east of the center of circulation. Today, guidance showed a little
bit of an eastward trend from guidance from earlier. This would
favor a drier solution for our forecast area. Confidence is
building with respect to tides moving higher than normal by Friday
with the highest values into the weekend due to the path of the
sfc low over the northern gulf and its fetch over the eastern half
of the gulf. For right now, have slightly favored an eastward
track in the forecast. This forecast is still a very fluid
situation and could change drastically as the surface low
circulation has not developed yet, and models tend to struggle
with unorganized systems. We will have to watch the evolution of
this over the next 24 hours to get a better handle on the
situation. There will be a tight rain gradient over the region and
which side we are one depends on the track. The system should
push out of the area Saturday night and return flow ahead of the
next cold front should begin once again by late Sunday. This front
should move through the area Monday night.
MVFR conditions to prevail through at least 6z. After 6z
conditions should improve from north to south toVFR conditions.
Winds will pick up out of the north at 10 to 20 knots as a cold
front moves through the area this evening.
A cold front will slowly push through the coastal waters this
evening. Exercise caution is in effect for the entire coastal
waters through Thursday morning. We will have to watch for a
possible upgrade this evening if winds exceed expectations. A
strong low pressure system will then impact the coastal waters on
Friday night and Saturday. Fully expect to see small craft
advisory conditions develop by Friday evening and persist into
Saturday evening. We will have to monitor for possible upgrades
to gale warnings or tropical type products if needed. Winds of 20|
to 30 knots and seas of 6 to 12 feet will be possible. High
pressure should quickly build over the waters as the low departs
on Sunday allowing for lighter winds of around 10 knots and seas
of 2 to 4 feet to take hold. However, another low pressure system
and cold front will approach the waters on Monday resulting in
increased onshore flow of 15 to 20 knots.

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.
