Updated discussion...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 222 am cdt Thu sep 20 2018
a cold front has entered NW kansas early this morning. This will be
the main weather focus during the short term period. This front will
continue to sink south and east. 90s will be likely ahead of this front.

Have 90s across the eastern zones. The western zones will be slightly
cooler in closer proximity to the front. Storms are expected to develop
along the front starting across eastern colorado and into far western
kansas. Mean 850-300-hpa winds are parallel to this boundary, so upscale
growth is expected to develop rather quickly. Bulk 0-6 km shear is
slightly stronger in the north than farther south. The main threats
will be heavy rainfall with pwats between the 75th and 90th percentile.

Outflow winds of 50 and possibly as high as 70 mph will be possible
given the upscale growth cold pool generation and due to the fact that
the atmosphere is expected to be well mixed ahead of the front with
dcape present. There may be some hail up to one inch, however a wind
threat is more likely. Precipitation amounts are expected to range
from a half of an inch across the western zones to over an inch across
the southeast zones.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 222 am cdt Thu sep 20 2018
much of the heavier rainfall Friday is expected to remain south of
the forecast area. Drier air will advect in from the northeast across
sw kansas. The good news is that we will get rid of this abnormal heat
that we have seen. Friday is going to be a great day with highs around
70f. Northeast winds will be a bit breezy though. As a high pressure
center sinks southward Saturday morning, we could see 40s for lows
in some areas, which will seem quite cool given our recent hot spell.

The rest of the weekend is shaping up to be pleasant with dry conditions,
fairly light winds, and highs in the 70s. The ec shows the next synoptic
wave moving across the fa early Tuesday. Showers and thunderstorms
could be a possibility with this next wave.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Thursday night)
issued at 1200 am cdt Thu sep 20 2018
overnight llws will exist for the terminal via a strong llj. CIGS will
start outVFR. As a cold front works its way south, storms with midlevel
clouds will start to develop. LowerVFR CIGS and storms will start
out along the cold front first for kgck klbl. As the storm activity
spreads east, kddc khys will get in on the action with reduced CIGS possibly
vis as well. The storms along the front could produce locally reduced
vis in association with heavy rainfall along the entire front. Outflow
winds of 40-50 kt may be possible ahead of the storms outflow boundary.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
