00z TAF discussion:
nearby surface high pressure system aiding in producing slightly
breezy north-northeast sfc winds early this evening. However, wind
speeds are already showing signs of decline upon nearing sunset,
and should drop to below 10 kts an hour or so after sunset. Skc
will prevail throughout the TAF period. 29

Tonight and Saturday...

a pleasant but cool day has unfolded across the region. Sunny skies
have prevailed, which has allowed temperatures to rise a bit higher
than previously forecast and into the mid to upper 50s. Some
locations across the highway 82 corridor have remained in the lower
50s. This has been in part to efficient mixing as north winds have
been sustained around 10 to 15 miles per hour today and gusts to
near 20 miles per hour. These winds are in response to a tightened
pressure gradient across the region following the passage of
yesterday's upper trough and surface high. These winds will slacken
some this evening as the surface high continues to track off to the
north and east of the region. Clear skies and lighter winds will
help temperatures drop overnight. However, winds won't be completely
calm, and this should inhibit completely optimal radiational cooling
conditions. Still, temperatures will bottom out in the upper 20 to
lower 30s across the region and everyone should see lows at or below

Upper ridging will move across the region tomorrow, which will help
keep conditions dry and sunny. Temperatures will be N the mid to
upper 50s mostly with a much lighter north wind. 28
tomorrow night through Friday...

quiet and dry weather with moderating temperatures is expected
through the majority of the period before rain chances return late
next week. The forecast starts off tomorrow night with a shortwave
trough ejecting out of the inter-mountain west and into the
central plains. This trough is progged to dig into the mississippi
river valley during the day on Sunday with the trough axis
traversing the region during the overnight hours into early Monday
morning. While adequate forcing will be present, the system will
be moisture starved with pwats around 0.25", therefore no
sensible weather is expected. Surface high pressure is expected to
remain draped across the gulf coast sates with conditions
favorable for radiational cooling heading into Sunday morning with
lows dropping into the low 30s. Afternoon highs will rebound
quickly into the upper 50s to low 60s ahead of the approaching
trough. The coldest air aloft will remain displaced north of the
area, but a quick shot of cooler 850mb temperatures, in
conjunction with cloud cover, will help keep afternoon highs on
Monday below average in the upper 50s.

Heading into the middle of next work week, broad ridging and
mainly zonal flow aloft will build into the southern conus.

Warming 850mb temperatures will allow afternoon highs to moderate
through the middle of the week into the upper 60s to low 70s by
Tuesday and especially Wednesday. By late next week, global
guidance is in agreement that a stout shortwave trough swinging
through the midwest will help push a cold front towards the
arklamiss ahead of a closed cutoff upper low over the desert
southwest. Low mid-level southwest flow will aide in moisture
return to the area with increasing rain chances by Thursday into
Friday. Tw

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 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 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.
