345 am cdt Wed apr 25 2018
first short wave on the way this morning as it moves through
nebraska. The attendant cold front will move through with some
showers Thursday morning while there is the possibility of some
thunderstorms over the northern most portion of the area as well.

Severe thunderstorm activity, if any, should stay north and east
of our area.

The second short wave will be quick on the heels of this one and
should move through Friday. It is currently located over northern
canada. This will also help keep the area in a rather cool and
mostly dry forecast. This short wave will also be coupled with
some rather cold 500mb temps. There is very little moisture
associated with it, but the strong dynamic lift will cause layer
lifting which in turn causes instability of these layers and high
enough rh levels to produce rainfall. Sounding profiles are
supportive of hail with any thunderstorm activity that is capable
of getting started. So of the two systems, the one having the best
opportunity of having strong or a severe thunderstorm with it will
be the Friday system. While this system is moving through,
stability will increase along with more dry air intrusion. This
will cause thunderstorms to decay as they move through the area

Warm air and moisture will begin to return to the area by the
start of the new week. This could lead to some convergent showers
moving in from the gulf by Tuesday and Wednesday. There is some
indication of a large slow moving cold front possibly affecting
the area by the end of next week.

Vfr conditions will prevail at the majority of the terminals through
06z. However, at kmcb some light fog could develop around 12z and
push visibilities into MVFR range for an hour or two. After 06z, an
approaching front will bring lower ceilings to most of the
terminals. Expect to see prevailing ifr and MVFR ceilings in place
by 12z tomorrow. Some scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms
should also accompany the frontal passage by 12z tomorrow, but any
visibility restrictions will be short-lived as the convection passes
through quickly. 32

A passing frontal boundary late tonight and tomorrow should result
in west-northwest winds of 15 to 20 knots and higher seas developing
late tonight into tomorrow morning over the open gulf waters and
sounds. Gradient flow should relax back to around 10 knots by
Thursday night. However, another front will pass through the
coastal waters on Friday. Another surge of stronger northerly winds
of 15 to 20 knots and higher seas will once again develop over the
open gulf waters and sounds for late Friday and Friday night. High
pressure should settle directly over the waters for the weekend, and
winds should turn more variable and drop to 10 knots or less. Seas
should also fall back to 3 feet or less for the weekend. 32

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.
