237 pm cdt Mon mar 27 2017
Issued at 146 pm cdt Mon mar 27 2017
the center of the low pressure system that brought rain late this
weekend and earlier today has shifted eastward to eastern mo
early this afternoon with just a few remnant showers near fort
wood and rolla. Severe weather risk has also shifted east of the
forecast area where storms with large hail are already underway
from western kentucky to northern mississippi.
Short term (this evening through Tuesday)
issued at 146 pm cdt Mon mar 27 2017
large swath of cloud cover extending around the back side of the
low pressure system will keep the area socked in with clouds through
much of the evening and overnight hours before clearing out some
on Tuesday. This will keep temperatures from dropping too much.
We're mainly thinking mid to upper 40s.
We still expect a break from precipitation to continue into
Tuesday with upper level ridging building over the area. This
should allow temperatures to rise into the mid 60s to lower 70s.
Long term (Tuesday night through Monday)
issued at 146 pm cdt Mon mar 27 2017
an upper level storm system developing over the great basin this
afternoon will drop southeast into the four corners region on
Tuesday before shifting eastward into the southern high plains on
Wednesday. Shortwave energy rotating around the upper trough will
move into the mo ozarks/se ks by late Tuesday night and Wednesday
morning. The slow eastward progression of this system combined
with already saturated ground will likely lead to some localized
flooding as several rounds of precipitation spread over the area
through late Thursday night. Instability and shear may also be|
sufficient for a few isolated strong to severe storms. We will be
monitoring instability trends through the next few forecast cycles
and adjust severe threat as needed.
We see another break in storm activity for much of Friday and
Saturday before another storm system takes a similar track into
the region late Saturday night and Sunday. Extended model guidance
shows some slight differences with the timing/location of the
system with the ECMWF being more progressive with eastward
movement through Sunday night while the GFS cuts off the upper low
and slows eastward movement.
Do not see thickness output dropping too low through the next
week..So will carry near normal temperatures above freezing.
Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Tuesday afternoon)
pilots flying in and out of the southwest missouri airports can
expect MVFR and possibly some ifr ceilings this afternoon and into
An upper level storm system was causing lowered flight conditions
across the region, with even some fog in spots.
No additional showers or thunderstorms are expected for the
joplin, springfield, and branson airports.
Flight conditions should improve Tuesday morning.

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.
