Updated for the 00z aviation discussion.
MostlyVFR conditions are expected, except for the possibility of
bkn-ovc025 in southern arkansas near kllq. Otherwise, regional
radar observations show some light precipitation moving east
through eastern oklahoma. Surface obs don't show this making it to
the ground very easily so feel it's likely not going to reach any
terminals. Do have vcsh mentioned later in the period at khro as
stronger lift moves into the region.
Prev discussion (issued 246 pm cdt Mon may 22 2017 )
short term... Tonight through Wednesday
several rounds of generally light precipitation are expected
during this period.
An area of scattered light rain continues to affect southeast portions of the
forecast area, in a region of weak isentropic ascent. This
activity will continue through the evening hours.
An upper level low, now centered over southwest ontario, is
forecast to drift southward during this period. Energy rotating
this feature will approach the mid south, along with an associated|
cold front by early Tuesday. These features will promote scattered
precipitation for Tuesday. Limited overall moisture and
instability will prohibit any chances for strong thunderstorm
On Wednesday, the previously mentioned upper low will be in proximity to
promote scattered convection across mainly northern sections.
Long term... Wednesday night through Monday
extended term will begin with a bit of a flat ridge aloft and a dry
forecast. Upper level flow will become southwesterly with a few
shortwaves rippling through the flow by Friday, as another surface
system starts to come together across the southern plains. Ahead of
this system the surface flow with turn southerly, bringing
increasing gulf moisture and rain chances throughout the day on
Surface boundary will be moving very slowly and will become quasi-
stationary. The GFS carries this through to a greater extreme,
keeping the boundary stalled thru the weekend. While the QPF amounts
are not particularly high at this time, we will have to keep a close
watch on how this slow moving system evolves. If the solution does
trend toward the gfs, there may be some concerns about the potential
for heavy rainfall and where it occurs.
Lzk watches/warnings/advisories None.

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 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.
