Update to long term...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 1230 am cdt Sun mar 24 2019
drier conditions will continue across western kansas through late
this afternoon as a closed upper low exits eastward across the
central plains while a drier air mass filters southward into the
high plains. However, a few showers cannot be ruled out near the
colorado border this evening as short range models indicate a
series of h5 vort maxima ejecting out of the colorado rockies into
the high plains late in the period. A developing easterly upslope
flow combined with a modestly strong westerly flow aloft may be
enough to support elevated shower development overnight. Significant
impacts are not likely. Fairly seasonal temperatures are expected
again today as surface high pressure migrating across the northern
plains into the upper midwest helps to reinforce the cooler air
mass settled throughout the high plains. Look for highs generally
up into the 60s(f) this afternoon. For tonight, expect lows down
into the mid upper 30s(f) to the lower 40s(f).

Long term (Monday through Saturday)
issued at 100 am cdt Sun mar 24 2019
a relatively dry period is likely through the middle part of the
week as medium range models show broad ridging aloft moving across
the intermountain west Monday, and further east out into the
western high plains Tuesday. Even though a prevailing southerly
flow will begin to slowly draw moisture up into the central
plains, a less than robust flow aloft and lack of instability will
hinder any precip chances through at least Tuesday night. There
is some general agreement with mid-range models indicating an
outside shot for precip early Wednesday morning as the upper ridge
axis shifts further east into the central plains. A pool of
increasing moisture in conjunction with a projected intensifying
low level jet may be enough to support a few early morning showers
as weak h5 perturbations begin to eject out of the central southern
rockies into the western high plains.

A cooler air mass will remain settled across the western high
plains Monday resulting in highs only reaching up into the 50s(f)
across much of the area to possibly the lower 60s(f) near and
along the oklahoma border. The warmest temperatures of the year
are likely by mid-week as aforementioned ridging aloft moves out
of the intermountain west into the central plains. A prevailing
southerly flow will enhance warm air advection into western central
kansas pushing highs well up into the 60s(f) to possibly the lower
70s(f) Tuesday afternoon with more widespread 70s(f) expected
Wednesday.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Sunday night)
issued at 1200 am cdt Sun mar 24 2019
predominatelyVFR conditions will prevail in the vicinity of all
taf sites through late this afternoon. North-northwest winds
generally 5 to 15kt will persist across southwest and central
kansas through this afternoon as surface low pressure moves from
north central kansas into northern missouri during the period.

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.
