6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Short term Tonight through Tuesday night
widely scattered afternoon convection has initiated once again
across the forecast area as temperatures continue to be well above
normal for late september. Much like the past few afternoons, this
convection will remain isolated and will dissipate after sunset when
the air mass begins to stabilize.
The precipitation chances this evening, as small as they are, will
be helped out by a closed upper low moving along the gulf coast.
This low will try to approach the region but it looks to wash out
before making any major impact over the next day or so.
Otherwise, no significant changes are being made to the forecast
with all short term and high res models in basically good agreement.
Water vapor imagery shows the main players fairly well with upper
level high pressure overhead and a stalled out front across the high
plains. The aforementioned upper low may still help kick off some
widely scattered convection Monday afternoon.
The front does nudge a bit to the east in the Tuesday Tuesday night
time frame as an upper low moves across southern canada. However,
precipitation chances still look small and temperatures will remain
well above normal through the short term period.
Long term Wednesday through Sunday
little if any changes were made to the long term portion of the
current forecast. A cold front is still expected to move through the
state Tuesday into Wednesday morning. Moisture will remain nearly
absent locally, with rainfall chances confined to western areas.
While arkansas will remain mostly rain free, locally heavy rainfall
will be seen across portions of west texas as a cutoff low taps into
a rich moisture plume out of mexico.|
As another shortwave transitions through the upper flow from the
great lakes into the northeast, another cold front with little to no
moisture will swing through the state by late in the period. This
will help reinforce cooler and drier air to the state. Expect
daytime temps on Friday and through the weekend to be below normal,
making it feel a bit more like fall.
The likelihood of drought development and fire weather concerns will
increase greatly through the long term forecast and beyond. Late in
the week, afternoon min rh values will fall into the 30 percent
range in many spots with elevated north winds in place at times.
Looking at recent rainfall data from several sites suggests many
areas have seen less than half an inch of rain since september 1st.
This leads to september monthly rainfall deficits of 1 to 3 inches
nearly statewide. These factors plus surface fuels continuing to
rapidly dry out continues to be concerning to this forecaster.

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.
