Prev discussion (issued 231 pm cdt Thu mar 30 2017)
short term... Tonight through Saturday
data from local radars indicate that all convective cells have moved
east of the state. Satellite imagery indicates the center of the
upper low is just east of joplin missouri. This feature will
continue to promote low cloud cover for at least northern sections
through Friday morning.

Dry conditions, and a warming trend can be expected through the
rest of this period, as a short wavelength mid level ridge axis
develops through the mid south..

Long term... Saturday night through Thursday
models remain steadfast in maintaining the progressive split flow
pattern across the nation with several more systems to deal with in
the long term. The models are in good agreement in the synoptic
scale but per usual, differences are obvious in the finer but still
important details such as timing and exact location of the features.

Until model clarification is reached, the best course of action will
be to blend forecast solutions.

Period initiates with the next southern stream system over the
southern high plains. System will morph into more on an open wave
during the day before closing off once again as it exits to the east
Monday afternoon. Meanwhile a frontal boundary will be lifting to
the north setting the stage for more showers and thunderstorms as
early as midnight Saturday night and continuing into Monday.

Potential remains for some strong storms over the south on Sunday
but dependent upon several factors including how far north the warm
sector advances into the state and instability. Models are also
forecasting convective clusters along the gulf coast which could rob
the deep moisture needed. Locally heavy rain can not be excluded but
the fairly quick motion of the system should preclude any widespread
problems.

The surface and upper system will depart Monday night, but return
flow will set up quickly by Tuesday, as southwest upper flow
develops again, and surface low pressure strengthens in lee of the
rockies. Scattered showers/storms will return to the forecast by mid-
week, as the surface low drags a cold front into the region with the
gfs considerably more aggressive than the ecmwf. Temperatures will
continue to run above normal.

Lzk watches/warnings/advisories None.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
