after a chilly start to the morning in the low to mid 30s most
places in the cwa, sunshine has helped to warm things back into
the mid to upper 50s for the northern half of the cwa. More cloud
cover in the south has kept readings in the 40s. Water vapor
imagery shows a strong closed low over the four corners region and
southwest flow out ahead of it into the lower mississippi valley
Main focus in the short term will be with temperatures tonight and
the potential for some additional frost. Next rain chances will
arrive on Thursday night into Friday as energy from the closed low
moves into the region.
Short term (this evening through Wednesday)

for tonight, main focus will be with temperatures. Despite the
cold start to the morning, we did not get a killing frost freeze
over the area last night. Forecast temperature guidance is mainly
going from mid 30s to low 40s for lows tonight and have gone
closer to the consraw output which has been performing better with
this air mass. This brings temperatures to the warmer side of
frost development and have gone with patchy wording coverage for
the northern cwa. Further south, more high level cloud cover is
expected and slightly warmer temperatures. Temperatures are
expected to warm back into the 60s on Wednesday with mostly sunny
conditions expected across the area.
Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)

the high pressure system should move across the area on Wednesday
night and will offer some additional frost chances late in the
night into Thursday morning.
Some upper ridging and a return to some southerly winds as the
surface ridge shifts eastward on Thursday, we should see
temperatures rebound again to the upper 50s and low 60s.
Some upper energy from the closed system out west will begin to
push into the area late in the day Thursday and Thursday night and
we could see the onset of some shower activity late Thursday
night. The rain chances will increase on Friday as a northern
stream wave begins to shift southeast across the upper mississippi
valley and western great lakes region. The bulk of the rain
chances should end by late Friday with only the southeastern
sections of the CWA getting rainfall on Friday evening. Another
cold front will push through on Friday night. Generally seasonal
temperatures are expected over the weekend.

a few mid and high level clouds remained across southern missouri
early this evening, with all 3 TAF sites reportingVFR
conditions. Expect a clearing trend through the overnight hours,
with clear skies expected on Wednesday. Winds will generally be
west to northwest tonight less than 6 knots, with north to
northeast winds during the day Wednesday around 10 knots.

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.
