Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 250 pm cdt Tue oct 17 2017
an upper level shortwave trough is currently passing through the
region. Surface high pressure is just east of the area and some
gust up to 20 mph could occur at times during the day light hours
the rest of this afternoon and again on Wednesday as the high
remains just off to the east.
Highs will top out around the 70 degree mark this afternoon with
highs on Wednesday warming into the middle 70s. Lows tonight will
drop into the 40s.
Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 250 pm cdt Tue oct 17 2017
an upper level ridge will build over the region Thursday and
Friday this will allow highs to top out in the upper 70s, with
some locations approaching the lower 80s. Moisture return will be
cut off from the gulf through the work week leaving dry
conditions across the area.
The ridge will then start to be push of to the east Friday as an
upper level trough builds into the western u.S. Upper level energy
may track across the area well ahead of the main trough later
Friday. At this time moisture will be limited and not expecting
much rain chances with this leading wave on Friday.
As the ridge spreads off to the east, moisture will start to|
spread north out of the gulf ahead of the approaching system
Saturday. An associated cold front will spread across the area
later Saturday into early Sunday and will bring showers and storms
to the area. Some linger showers may occur into the day Sunday as
the trough passes over the area, but all in all this system will
move through the region fairly quickly. If enough instability can
develop there could be a conditional strong severe risk, but this
will be dependent on how quickly and far north the moisture can
return ahead of this system, which still is a low confidence
Behind the front slightly cooler conditions will spread back into
the area Sunday into early next week.
Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Wednesday afternoon)
issued at 1150 am cdt Tue oct 17 2017
for the ksgf, kjln, and kbbg tafs:VFR conditions will prevail
across the TAF sites this afternoon through the day on Wednesday.
Surface high pressure will remain west of the area and could
allow some gusty winds to occur at times.

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.
