Marine update
Added a small craft exercise caution for the tidal lakes and
upgraded to a small craft advisory for all other coastal waters
through Saturday with extensions possible. Current wind trends
already have elevated easterly winds with sustained winds near or
at 20 knots. Waves may be choppier in the tidal lakes due to the
easterly winds going against the flow of water. -bl

above normal temperatures and mainly dry conditions will prevail
through the next week. The best rain chances during this period
will likely be today with isolated to scattered convection
expected. The higher rain chances today will be over the western
half of the forecast area where the better moisture will reside.

Some drier air will begin pushing westward into the forecast area
today which will limit the chances for convection across eastern
zones, especially coastal mississippi. This drier air will filter
across much of the area into the weekend, but will be most noted
across eastern and northern sections of the forecast area. As a
result, it will feel a bit less humid and nighttime lows will be a
little lower... Primarily across south mississippi and the florida
parishes of southeast louisiana. Otherwise, ridging aloft will
dominate the gulf south with some weakening and suppression of the
ridge during the middle and end of next week as a couple of short
wave troughs pass to our north and northwest. Generally went a
bit above guidance for daytime highs, especially through the
weekend, given recent model guidance performance and the dry
conditions across much of the area. 11
aviation...

vfr category conditions will generally prevail at the terminals
during the TAF forecast period. Isolated to scattered convection
today could impact any of the terminals, with kgpt having the
least chance. The convection should mostly dissipate after sunset.

a tightening pressure gradient will result in moderate to strong
easterly flow across the coastal waters through the weekend.

Exercise caution headlines will be needed during this period for
all locations but the tidal lakes with even small craft advisory
conditions possible at times. The winds will relax going into next
week with high pressure prevailing across the region. 11

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.
