SHORT TERM /Tonight through Monday Night/.
Northwesterly upper level flow is expected to persist across the eastern CONUS today and Monday. At the surface, strong high pressure will gradually move southeastward from the Great Lakes region towards the mid-Atlantic coast. The northwesterly upper level flow pattern aloft and surface high pressure will keep relatively dry conditions in place over the forecast area through the short term period. In spite of some moisture trapped underneath an inversion at 5-7 kft contributing to a scattered cumulus field each afternoon, no precipitation is expected. Temperatures will also be near seasonal normals, with highs mainly in the 80s and lows in the 60s.
LONG TERM /Tuesday through Sunday/.
No major changes made to the extended forecast. The long term continues to look like it will be dry through mid week. The upper ridge centered west of the MS River will expand across the southeast through the period By Thursday. a short wave will develop in the mid MS Valley and drift southeastward into the Appalachians. Meanwhile . models are indicating a trough developing the lower MS River Valley/Northern Gulf area. In general these features will help to increase moisture over the forecast area. Slight chance or chance pops have been continued across the area for Thursday into Saturday. Max temperatures will warm into the upper 80s to low 90s over most of the area during the upcoming week.

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.
