Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Aviation
OverallVFR flight conditions are expected in the next 24 hours.

Wednesday morning, isolated to scattered showers and a possible
thunderstorm will be seen at central and southern TAF sites. The
rain coverage will increase later today and tonight, as a system
moves into the region. Winds will be light from the south or light
and variable to start Wednesday, then become mainly south to
southwest at 5 to 15 mph. Some patchy MVFR ceilings may be seen with
stronger convection. (59)

Prev discussion issued 410 am cdt Wed jun 20 2018
main concerns in this forecast cycle are chances of convection in
the next several days. Any risk of strong to severe storms. While
temperatures will be closer to normal values.

Early this morning, light convection was moving northeast over
mainly the southern half of ar, associated with weak upper level
energy moving through the region. The atmosphere was moist with
surface dew point temps in the 60s to near 70, while precip water
values were around 1.5 inches. Winds were light from the south.

Surface high pressure was off to the east, while a frontal
boundary was over ks. Northeast to ia.

Short term Today through Thursday night
models do support higher pops today with upper level lift moving
across the region, especially this afternoon during the heat of
the day. Good moisture in place will help the develop of the
convection. At this time, any threat of strong to severe storms
will be isolated and low. Isolated heavy rain will also be
possible with the slow steering flow aloft. Highs will be closer
to normal values due to the clouds and rain chances. Rain chances
remain up tonight and Thursday, as additionally lift moves across
the region, and a frontal system slowly moves through ar. The
frontal system will add a bit more lift, and the risk of an
isolated strong to severe storm may be seen. The upper low
pressure system over the central plains will also gradually move
east south east, and help keep some convection in the forecast
through Friday. Rain amounts will be the hardest to forecast due
to uncertainty in location and strength of upper lift.

Temperatures will remain around normal to a bit above in rain free
areas, while below in clouds and rain areas.

Long term Friday through Tuesday
low pressure aloft will be over the midwest to begin the long term
period with an upper ridge over the desert southwest. The upper low
will move through the great lakes Saturday as another low dives into
the rockies by Sunday. High pressure spreads across the southern
u.S. Sunday and Monday. The area of high pressure will block the
incoming low to the north Tuesday.

Rain chances will continue Friday and Saturday. The best rain
chances will be north and central. A cold front will be located in
south arkansas Friday becoming stationary. This front moves north of
the state Sunday as a warm front. Rain chances will decrease Sunday
through Tuesday as high pressure builds over arkansas. Highs in the
low 80s to mid 90s are expected Friday, and mid 80s to lower 90s
Saturday, then a warming trend will begin Sunday and continue
into Tuesday.

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.
