Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 156 am cst Mon dec 18 2017
the back edge of the cloud cover over the region was currently
across eastern kansas. This will slowly edge to the east through
this morning with clearing occuring this afternoon.
Southwesterly flow aloft and at the surface will continue today
thanks to surface high pressure over the southeastern CONUS and
an upper level low over northern old mexico. This pattern will
help to keep a warmer airmass in place over the ozarks. Afternoon
highs area forecast to reach the middle to upper 50s as a result.
This warm pattern will continue through tonight as well with
overnight low remaining in the 40s.
Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)
issued at 156 am cst Mon dec 18 2017
the upper level system over the southwest will move east northeast
through the day on Tuesday. With little change in the surface flow
temperatures will again be mild in the 50s during the afternoon.
As the upper low moves across texas, southerly winds will drag
moisture from the gulf and bring a chance for rain to extreme
southern missouri by late Tuesday evening lingering into Wednesday
morning. Locations south of i-44 will have the best and really
only chance for any precipitation with locations nearest the
arkansas line having the best overall chance.
Dry high pressure will move over the area by Wednesday afternoon
as the upper low swings east of the ozarks. Temperatures will
remain mild through Thursday afternoon with highs climbing into
the lower 60s across the area as surface winds increase from the
southwest as low pressure develops and moves across the plains.
Winds may be a bit breezy during the day on Thursday.
A cold front, that has been talked about for the past few days,
will move through the area late Thursday night through Friday
morning. The front will sport precipitations in advance of the|
front and much colder temperatures behind the front. Highs on
Friday will reach the 50s across south central missouri but only
the 40s from i-44 north. Temperatures will slowly fall Friday
afternoon and evening as the front moves quickly east of the
area. The cold air will move into the ozarks quickly Friday night
with lows Saturday morning in the 20s and highs on Saturday only
expected to be in the 30s for all but the southeastern ozarks.
At this point, models continue to have significant differences in
the system that is forecast to move through the region christmas
eve day and on christmas. There is still a very low confidence
signal for light precipitation during this period. With the cold
air in place this might bring some flurries,. But again confidence
is very low in this.
The one thing of better confidence is that the system will bring a
reinforcing shot of cold air to the region with overnight lows
Sunday night into Monday morning in the teens for most areas and
day time highs on Monday struggling to reach the freezing mark.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1124 pm cst Sun dec 17 2017
low clouds and patchy drizzle will persist overnight and into
early Monday morning across southern missouri. Prevailing ifr
conditions are expected, although some pockets of MVFR will occur
Ceilings and visibilities will then improve from later Monday
morning into Monday afternoon.VFR is expected to return to most
areas by early afternoon.
Winds will remain out of the south to southwest at 5 to 10 knots
through Monday evening.

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.
