Synopsis
Issued at 259 pm cdt Sun jul 22 2018
there is a ridge over the plains with a trough moving
along the central u.S. And canadian border as well as over the
eastern third of the conus. Remnants of a MCS left cloud cover to
start the day across the eastern half of the sunflower state into oklahoma.

Afternoon heating helped diminish the cloud cover making way for
ample sunshine, winds of 5 to 10 mph and temperatures in the mid
80s thru the mid afternoon.

Short term (this evening through Tuesday night)
issued at 259 pm cdt Sun jul 22 2018
challenges: precipitation chances tonight into Monday
an 850mb trough could spark shower and thunderstorm development this
evening over the high plains which may just make it into central
kansas late tonight or early Monday morning. Confidence is not high
in this occurrence given the latest guidance which only suggests
slight chances at this time. Western kansas appears to have the
better chance. The pattern regime of a trough across the
u.S. Canadian border and the eastern third of the CONUS stays in
place for the first part of the work week keeping high pressure over
the western conus. Such a pattern keeps high temperatures near
seasonal normal values in the lower 90s which will certainly be a
relief compared to the past couple of weeks.

Long term (Wednesday through Sunday)
issued at 259 pm cdt Sun jul 22 2018
challenges: chances for precipitation for the latter part of the
week into next weekend
the trough off to the north will begin to move southeast on
Wednesday which will put the plains in a northwest flow pattern
through the end of the week into the weekend. An active period is
anticipated as mentioned in the previous discussions. Currently the
expectation is a MCS each evening overnight from Wednesday night
through Saturday night. Strong to severe thunderstorms will be possible
throughout this time period given the instability parameters.

There is not going to be a continuous presence of precipitation
activity. It is still expected to be on and off.

Flooding could be a concern as mentioned previously with
precipitable water values ranging from 1.5 to 2 inches for this time
period. The thunderstorm activity in it of itself could produce
localized flooding; however, multiple days of this activity could
lead to additional flooding issues or a quicker onset for it to
occur depending on amounts and the area in which this occurs.

Drought does persist across much of the area though with roughly 5
to just shy of 10 inches of rainfall below the seasonal normal
values. This is a point in the forecast to watch with updates in the
model guidance. Adjustments were made in this forecast issuance
in the precipitation chances field due to such adjustments in
guidance.

Wednesday is forecast to be the relative hot day of the week with
high temperatures in the lower 90s. Temperature wise this forecast
is arguably stellar comparatively to the couple of weeks with
afternoon highs around 90 degrees for several days in a row which
will be a nice change of pace. Outdoor activities may flourish even
more even with possibly wet surfaces.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening)
issued at 628 pm cdt Sun jul 22 2018
vfr conditions will prevail across the region for the next 24hrs
as surface high pressure remains in control with easterly winds.

The winds will switch to the north for late Monday morning and
afternoon across central kansas.

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.
