12z aviation forecast update...
Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 124 am cdt Sat mar 17 2018
quiet weather is expected today with seasonable temperatures. The
only area that may see a little more gloomy skies will be across
central missouri into the far northeastern ozarks region. Clouds
on the back side of the exiting low pressure system will move
through that area. The cloud cover may keep the temperatures in
the 40s. The rest of the area will see sunshine with highs in the
upper 50s to lower 60s. High pressure moves on by the region
tonight with light winds and clear skies. Temperatures will fall
into the middle 30s which is about average for this time of year.
Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 124 am cdt Sat mar 17 2018
our next storm system quickly moves out into the central plains
region Sunday into Monday. Moisture will surge northward late
Sunday and showers will develop from southwest to northeast across
the region. Sunday will not be a complete wash out but expect rain
likely by Sunday evening along a retreating warm frontal boundary.
There could be a few elevated storms along the warm front and
could be just enough instability for some small hail. There is a
marginal risk for a strong storm or two Sunday evening into Sunday
night across portions of southeast kansas into southwest missouri.|
It will become breezy again Sunday night into Monday with a strong
low pressure system over kansas. Rain and isolated storms will be
likely through Monday as the system slowly moves eastward. The
center of the system moves over the area Monday evening and Monday
night with showers. Most of the showers will end Monday night but
there could be a few leftover into Tuesday morning on the back
side of the exiting shortwave trough. Tuesday will be cooler and
below average lasting into Wednesday. We will be dry for Wednesday
and Thursday ahead of our next storm system which will be more
rainfall by the end of the week.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning)
issued at 439 am cdt Sat mar 17 2018
vfr conditions will continue over the next 24 hours for most of
the area. There may be a deck of MVFR ceilings across central
missouri today but will not affect the TAF sites. Winds will start
out westerly and gradually shift northwesterly today and then
notherly this evening between 5 and 10 knots. There are no
aviation concerns for the next 24 hours with this update.

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.
