DISCUSSION. Today and Tomorrow .
Ripples of short wave troughs have seemed to be the trend over the last couple of weeks for the Deep South and will continue in the near term. A quickly moving short wave trough will push through the ArkLaMiss tonight and into tomorrow bringing in rain showers. A low pressure system tracking through the ArkLATex, which is associated with this trough will help bring some showers to the region earlier today, as locations in the west are already currently experiencing some light showers. Rain will progress through out the rest of the day going into tomorrow and eventually exiting the region in the late evening on Wednesday. Though this is a quickly moving system and expectations of impactful weather aren't a concern, wouldn't rule out some embedded thunder for portions in the south where they are closer to the area of low pressure/instability. Fog isn't much of a concern either however, areas of fog in the south are possible early tomorrow morning. Low temperatures for tonight will be in the mid to upper 40s and high temperatures for tomorrow will be in the mid 50s areawide./JNE/
Wednesday night through Monday night . A few light rainshowers will be possible over the eastern portions of the area Wednesday evening, as the short wave moves to the east. Surface high pressure ridging will build in Wednesday night, with lows around 40 degrees for most of the area. High pressure at the surface and aloft will prevail across the region on Thursday, but moisture will increase once again across the area Thursday night. Another short wave will move across the region Thursday night into Friday, with another round of mainly light rainshowers likely.
The main upper trough axis will move across the region on Saturday, with high pressure building back in across the region Saturday night and Sunday. With increasing southerly flow and ridging at the surface and aloft, highs will climb into the mid/upper 60s on Sunday. The surface ridge will shift to the east on Monday, as another short wave brings increasing chances for showers Monday and Monday night. Highs will climb into the mid/upper 60s once again on Monday./15/
AVIATION. 18Z TAF discussion: VFR conditions prevail at all TAF sites but during late afternoon hours sites in the west like GLH will experience VCSH starting around 20Z as an approaching system from the west spreads into our region. Flight categories will vary throughout the TAF period especially site GLH as they will see lowering of ceilings earlier as an IFR cloud deck moves in from LA/TX. -RA will begin late tonight for central and eastern areas and eventually turn into RA tomorrow morning. Winds will be out of the east and shifting more SE around 06z./JNE/

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 numerous 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.
