Short term (today through Monday night)
issued at 313 am cst Sat nov 18 2017
today:
still anticipate fairly rapid end to precipitation and clearing
skies this afternoon in wake of departing shortwave and influx of
drier air and subsidence. Winds should diminish late in the
afternoon, with advisory still looking on track given good cold
air advection momentum transfer. Tonight downslope flow will make
lows tricky given radiational cooling vs mixing. Going forecast
looked good.

Sunday:
ridge axis will moving across the forecast area during the day with
winds increasing backing. Temperatures should rebound given
downslope component. Surface pressure gradient should keep winds up
overnight, keeping lows above normal.

Monday:
good downslope flow anticipated with very dry air aloft and brisk
southwest flow. Adjusted highs up, but suspect the western third
of forecast area are still too cool.

Long term (Tuesday through Friday)
issued at 313 am cst Sat nov 18 2017
medium range models remain in decent agreement with building
western ridge and deepening eastern trough. 00 utc GFS is a bit
faster than 00 utc ECMWF with this evolution. Both suggest next
cold front will traverse the area Monday night with cold air
advection on Tuesday. Surface ridge axis moves across early on
Wednesday with weak return flow developing. Both models continue
to flatten upper ridge and expand it east through this period.

00z ECMWF has come around closer to GFS with shortwave cutting
through western ridge late in the period and beyond. Given run to
run variability, confidence from Friday on is low. -howerton

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night)
issued at 1133 pm cst Fri nov 17 2017
a strong cold front will continue to push southward across kansas
for late tonight, and northwest winds will ramp up considerably
behind the front with gusts around 35kts at times. Meanwhile a
brief period of MVFR low CIGS will develop and move southward
across the region. The low clouds will scatter out for the mid to
late morning hours however the strong northwest winds will persist
through much of the day.

Fire weather
Issued at 313 am cst Sat nov 18 2017
gfdi values will be very high area wide today given strong gusty
winds and dry air. Gusty winds ahead of the next front on Monday
will likely result in very high gfdi values over most of the area
once again. -howerton

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.
