12z aviation forecast update...
Short term (today)
issued at 253 am cdt Mon aug 21 2017
all is quiet around the missouri ozarks region this morning. Skies
were fair despite some high cloudiness being seen on goes-16. A
small "dirty" ridge of high pressure is holding control of our
weather for today. We may just luck out and see fairly good
weather for the solar eclipse before widely scattered showers and
storms develop by mid to late afternoon across much of the area.
During the window between noon and 2 pm, we expect the majority of
the local area to see partly cloudy skies with some occasional
high cirrus clouds and some cumulus clouds developing by midday or
early afternoon. At the time of the peak of the eclipse, we have
about a 10 to 20 percent chance of a pop up shower or storm.
Temperatures will top out around the lower 90s today but during
the eclipse we may see a brief drop or lag in temperature climb.
We wouldn't be surprised to see some weather stations across
central missouri and eastern ozarks drop several degrees by 1 pm.
Heat index values may climb between 100 to 104 degrees for
portions of southeast kansas and far southwestern missouri late
Long term (tonight through Sunday)
issued at 253 am cdt Mon aug 21 2017
the majority of all the model guidance shows widespread showers
and storms moving into the area very late tonight towards sunrise
Tuesday ahead of a cold front. The Tuesday morning commute looks
kinda wet and stormy for much of the area. If we can get some|
breaks in the clouds and showers by the afternoon ahead of the
cold front, we may see an additional round of showers and storms
develop over southern missouri during the afternoon and move
southward into arkansas by evening. Because of decent shear and
potential instability, there will be at least a marginal risk for
a few strong to severe storms possible on Tuesday. Damaging wind
gusts up to 60 mph and hail up to the size of quarters will be
possible with the strongest storm. Localized heavy rainfall may
be possible but on average a half an inch to 1 inch will be
The region will be in a northwest flow with a canadian surface
high pressure building across the midwest and great lakes region
for Wednesday through Friday. Very pleasant weather will be
expected with highs in the upper 70s to around 80 and overnight
lows in the middle 50s to around 60. Very nice weather for the end
of august! Models indicate our next chance of rain may return by
late Saturday into Sunday.

vfr conditions are expected during the next 24 hours. Fair skies
expected most of today with isolated convection possible late this
afternoon into early evening. More widespread showers and storms
may begin to move into the area between 09z to 12z Tuesday morning
which may affect sgf and jln. Winds will generally be southerly 5
to 10 knots today and tonight.

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.
