Aviation 00z forecast
ifr lifr conditions will be prevalent through the night and into
Monday morning. Initially, ceilings will be the bigger issue, but
as rain persists, and winds decrease, visibility will also come
into play. Winds will be light and variable. Conditions will
improve some by Monday afternoon, as drier air moves in and
overall coverage of clouds and precip decrease. Tafs already out.

short term... Tonight through Tuesday
another day of well below normal temperatures was seen across the
state, with widespread rainfall and cloud cover affecting the area
once again. A mid-level disturbance lifting northeast of the
state has been the primary influence on rainfall production from
sw to northeastern parts of the forecast area along with an
exceptionally moist environment(12z klzk sounding pw value of
Some weak troughing will remain in place southwest of the area in
the flow aloft and will help provide some continued lift over the
area. The main surface low southwest of the area currently will
drift to the northeast through the period and the focus for
precipitation will gradually shift east with time.
By Tuesday, the mid-level flow will be out of the southwest and
surface ridging will be in place east of the area. Abundant
moisture will stream over the area and as a few weak disturbances
move through some scattered showers and thunderstorms may
develop, likely during the heat of the day.
A warming trend will commence for Monday and Tuesday with
readings expected to top out in the 80s areawide Tuesday
afternoon. Just beyond the period, a cold front will begin to make
its way through the area from the northwest.
Long term... Tuesday night through Sunday|
unsettled weather will continue through the long term portion of the
forecast as several frontal boundaries and upper level impulses move
through the area.
To begin the period, the majority of arkansas will be under a
southwesterly flow regime aloft as a longwave trough advances
eastward towards the area. Accompanying the upper level feature will
be a surface cold front, which should move through the area late
Tuesday into Wednesday. Continue to anticipate the frontal boundary
stalling across the arkansas louisiana border, and retreating
northward later in the week. This could help bump temperatures up
With upper level forcing and enhanced lift at the surface, continue
to anticipate chances for showers and thunderstorms through the
forecast period (with the best chances being Wednesday and
Thursday). At this time, the better energy associated with the storm
system will be north of arkansas, near the great lakes region, and
therefore do not anticipate widespread severe weather. However, with
additional rainfall forecast, we will continue to monitor for the
threat of flooding flash flooding as additional rainfall could
aggravate already saturated soil.
As we head into the weekend and early next week, model solutions
show a ridge of high pressure building over the southeast us.
However, guidance begins to differ regarding a possible frontal
boundary upper level trough. At this time, have kept in slight
chances for rain early next week as the feature approaches the area
early next week, which could bring more active weather to the state.
For temperatures, expect highs on Wednesday in the upper 60s across
the north, ranging to the lower 80s across the south. Likewise, lows
will be in the mid to upper 50s across the north, and mid 60s across
the south. We'll see a gradual warm-up each day through the

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.
