Updated aviation...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 229 am cst Mon nov 20 2017
low level downslope flow will result in further airmass modification
today. Due to the continued dry ground, opted to go warmer than
any of the model guidance, with upper 60s to lower 70s for highs.

A dry cold front is expected to pass through tonight. This will
keep the lower levels mixed due to 10 mph north winds so that a
marked near surface temperature inversion is not expected.

Therefore, despite the cold advection behind the front,
temperatures should only fall to the upper 30s to lower 40s.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)
issued at 229 am cst Mon nov 20 2017
a dry pattern is expected across the high plains region for the
next week and possibly through the rest of november. The mid to
upper level flow pattern is expected to be mainly westerly to
northwesterly, with any embedded upper level disturbances being
fast moving. As long as we lack arctic air, temperatures will
continue to be much warmer than model guidance. After a brief cool
down Tuesday in the wake of the aforementioned cold front, warmer
air is expected by Wednesday. The warmest days, depending on the
exact frontal timing, should be Thursday and Friday. If the front
moves though late on Friday, low level down slope just ahead of
the front could propel temperatures to near 80 degrees. High
temperatures may be close to record values both days, with the
records being 74 for Tuesday and 80 for Friday. This forecast will
show 73 for Thursday and 74 for Friday.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning)
issued at 500 am cst Mon nov 20 2017
vfr is expected through TAF pd. S SW winds 5-15 kt through much of the
day. Winds will become NW N through the overnight.

Fire weather
Issued at 104 pm cst Sun nov 19 2017
there is an elevated risk of wildfires this afternoon. The nam
humidity values were ignored in this dry pattern, with afternoon
values expected to be between 10 and 17%. However, winds are
expected to only reach 12-15 mph sustained, with gusts only to
around 20 mph. Therefore, red flag conditions are not expected.

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.
