Short term (this evening through Saturday)
issued at 200 pm cdt Fri apr 20 2018
beautiful day across the area with temps approaching 60 with just
some passing cirrus clouds. Winds were beginning to increase from
the east southeast and this trend will continue tonight as a
storm system approaches from the rockies. Relative humidity values
have really dropped this afternoon and therefore an elevated fire
weather risk will continue until tonight when moisture
increases. However it should be a very nice evening for outdoor
activities across the area.
Upper level low approaches by early Saturday morning and may see
precip approach southeast kansas and western missouri as early as
sunrise Saturday and then slowly move east. There will initially
be some dry air to work through therefore it may take some time
for the precip to reach the ground the further east you go.
Locations along and east of us highway 65 may not see rainfall
until very late afternoon or evening Saturday. Clouds and winds
will keep temps up into the 40s across most of the area tonight
with perhaps a few upper 30s across the eastern ozarks. There will
also be a decent range in temps tomorrow from west to east with
middle 50s for highs out west to middle 60s across the eastern

surface low will move along the red river valley and into the
arklatex Saturday night with widespread wrap around rainfall
occuring especially across the southern half of the area. The low
will be slow to move therefore the rainfall will likely last|
through most of Sunday and into Sunday night until the low pulls
farther east. Instability looks very low therefore thunderstorms
are not expected at this time. Rainfall amounts through Sunday
night look to range from a quarter of an inch across central
missouri to three quarters of an inch across the
joplin springfield salem areas with amounts around 1 inch across
the branson and west plains areas. This will be a prolonged light
to moderate rainfall event.
Another system looks to move in with a cold front Tuesday night
into Wednesday and then again possible Thursday night into Friday
with some slight rainfall chances. Moisture and instability looks
sparse. This will keep temperatures near to slightly below
average for the time of year.
No hazardous or impactful weather is expected over the following

vfr conditions expected at the TAF sites today with passing
cirrus. Winds will remain out of the east southeast with a few

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.
