Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 110 pm cst Tue dec 18 2018
another mild day was occurring across the region with a warm air
advection pattern in place near the surface. We have seen an
increase in mid-level cloudiness along and west of the u.S. 65
corridor due to a weak short wave trough rippling through the
That wave will push to our northeast this evening with weak height
rises overspreading the region. The main concern tonight will be
the potential for patchy fog due to low level moisture advection.
There may also be some stratus build-down that comes into play
along the higher terrain of the ozark plateau. At this point, we
are not expecting widespread dense fog as the lower levels of the
atmosphere will remain somewhat mixed.
Lows tonight will vary across the region due to the patchy nature
of clouds. Areas of the eastern ozarks should fall into the middle
30s. Areas back towards i-49 should stay a bit warmer with lows in
the lower 40s.
Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 110 pm cst Tue dec 18 2018
an upper level low will open up and lift out out the arklatex
region while phasing with a northern stream trough from Wednesday
into Thursday. Lift associated with this trough will bring
increasing chances for light rain showers from later Wednesday
into Thursday. Rainfall amounts do not look all that impressive
with this system with most areas receiving anywhere from a few
hundredths to perhaps as much as a quarter inch.
After highs once again in the 50s on Wednesday, a cold front will|
bring a shot of cooler temperatures for Thursday and Friday.
Thursday looks downright raw with brisk northwest winds and highs
in the 40s.
Saturday then looks dry and a bit warmer as we see brief short
wave ridging. Global models then bring a quick moving trough out
of the central plains and through the ozarks on Sunday. Moisture
will be limited, thus we have kept pops at or below 20%.
Better chances for rain may then return for Monday night and
Tuesday as the next in a series of short wave troughs skirts
through the region within a zonal flow aloft. It appears that this
trough will have a better gulf moisture fetch available to tap
into, hence the better shot at rain.
Temperatures early next week should remain above normal.
Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 600 pm cst Tue dec 18 2018
a system will track across the plains tonight and Wednesday.
Winds will remain out of the south to southwest and could become
gusty on Wednesday ahead of the system. High level clouds will
continue to spread across the region overnight. Fog will be
possible early Wednesday morning, with the best chances across
southeastern kansas and western missouri.

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.
