Short term (this evening through Tuesday)
fair weather was observed over extreme southeast kansas and the
missouri ozarks today. High pressure dominated the region,
bringing sunny skies, light winds, and low humidity. We had a ton
of prescribed burns that occurred today, mostly across southern
For tonight, look for a slight uptick in southerly breezes with
lows ranging from the mid 30s to the lower 40s.
A speed MAX will approach the region from the northwest tomorrow,
bringing an increase in cloud cover during the day. Look for warm
temperatures in the upper 50s and lower 60s.
Precipitation should hold off until tomorrow night. A band of
showers is expected to sweep across the region during the
overnight period. Nearly all locations will experience rain, with
amounts up to one quarter of an inch. Most locations will receive
a bit less than that. Rain will exit the eastern ozarks by
mid day Wednesday.
Much colder temperatures are expected Wednesday with highs only in
the lower 50s. We could see readings actually drop off during the
Long term (Thursday through Monday)
the ozarks will be underneath the inflection of a deep upper
trough to the east, and a ridge to the west on Thursday.
Temperatures will be held in check as canadian high pressure will
be centered overhead.

afternoon as a dry continental airmass keeps the region rain free.
However, a pattern change will occur, allowing for a return of
gulf moisture by Saturday night and Sunday. This will set the
stage for some showers that could linger all the way into Tuesday.
We don't think rainfall amounts will be excessive, although we
will monitor QPF trends closely since antecedent conditions are
Beyond next Tuesday, medium range models are showing a large upper
level trough to become established over the nation's midsection.
This could bring temperatures into the 70s by late next work week.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1150 pm cdt Mon mar 18 2019
vfr conditions will continue through early Tuesday evening with
increasing high and mid-level clouds. East winds tonight will veer
to the south and become gusty on Tuesday. Gusts around 20 knots
will be likely during the late morning and afternoon.
An approaching cold front may then bring a few showers into the
joplin vicinity by 06z on Tuesday tonight. There will be a low-end
chance for some MVFR with any showers. The better chance for
showers and MVFR will come after 06z.

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.
