Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 332 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
areas of fog have developed across portions of southeastern kansas
and southwestern missouri early this morning. Overall the fog
should be light in nature and not last all that long. There will
be some patchy areas that will drop below one mile at times and
visibilities will likely vary greatly over short distances. Not
expecting widespread dense fog but localized areas of dense fog
will be possible. The fog should start to gradually improve by
sunrise this morning.
Surface high pressure will spread across the area today resulting
in mainly light winds. Highs will range from the lower 50s across
the eastern ozarks to around 60 across southeastern kansas. Lows
tonight will drop to the lower 30s across the eastern ozarks to
the lower 40s across southeastern kansas.
Long term (Wednesday through Monday)
issued at 332 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
an upper level ridge will spread across the region on Wednesday.
The high pressure will start to spread east of the area as low
pressure spreads into the plains on Wednesday. This will result
in the pressure gradient tightening across the region. Gusty
southerly winds will develop across the area on Wednesday with
gusts over 30 mph occurring at times from the mid-morning hours
through the early evening hours. A warmer air mass will be ushered
into the area as highs top out in the middle 60s to the lower 70s
Wednesday afternoon. A dry air mass will be in place and allow
afternoon humidities to fall below 40 percent, with values around
or below 30 percent likely in spots. An elevated fire weather risk
will be possible as the gusty winds combine with the warm and dry
Gusty winds will continue into Friday and will start to pull|
moisture north into the area Wednesday night into Friday. A
couple of upper level disturbances will spread across the area
Wednesday night into Friday ahead of the main upper level trough.
Scattered showers will develop and affect the area at times from
Wednesday night into Friday. Overall instability will be limited
during these times which will result in mainly showers occurring
with a few embedded rumbles of thunder possible.
The upper level trough and associated surface front will then
sweep across the region Friday evening into Saturday morning.
Showers and storms will develop on the front, and we should see
better coverage in storms along the front as instability increases
from the south. A few strong storms may be possible Friday evening
A cooler air mass will spread into the area behind the system
this weekend as highs in the 40s and lows in the upper 20s to the
lower 30s are expected.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1142 pm cdt Mon mar 25 2019
drier air has pushed in from the northeast and eroded most of the
cloud cover in the eastern half of the cwa. Jln was on the western
edge of the cloud cover now with some clearing also taking place
from the west. Sgf bbg were both on the eastern edge of the
clouds, but should clear out after the first couple to few hours
of the 06z tafs. Expecting mostlyVFR conditions after that, with
a fairly light and variable wind on Tuesday.

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.
