Short term (today through Saturday night)
issued at 407 am cdt Thu apr 27 2017
headline:
flooding potential continues for primarily southeast ks from late
fri night through Sat night.

Today & tonight:
the next mid-level short wave is taking on a slight negative tilt as
it pushes SE across the central rockies. The approaching short wave
is slowly inducing sfc troffing along the front range. With both
becoming more assertive this afternoon, rain and a few thunderstorms
would develop from wy & the nebraska panhandle then spread SE toward
central ks late this afternoon. With the lowest 5,000ft across the
wrn half of central ks not moistening until mid-late afternoon have
delayed arrival of the rain to the about NW quarter of kict country
til 3-4 pm.

Fri-sat night:
rain & embedded thunderstorms really ramp up as the main upper deck
trof undergoes cyclogenesis as it digs further over the 4-corners
region Fri night. This "main" upper cyclone will follow in the
tracks of its predecessor shortwave, but slowly, as it transitions
into a cut-off low over the nm/tx border Sat afternoon & night.

The increasing upper diffluence, enhanced by the approach of
100-110kt upper-deck jet max, will spell trouble for southeast ks
for it'll cause a front to pivot around a sfc low centered over
eastern ok. The warm/moist advection is strong & would translate
into heavy rains across southeast ks that would be enhanced by
thunderstorms. Flood watches will likely be required for southeast
ks Sat & Sat night.

Long term (Sunday through Wednesday)
issued at 407 am cdt Thu apr 27 2017
the afore-mentioned cut-off begins to lift slowly NE into central
ks on Sun & with the strengthening upper-deck jet rounding the
base of the upper-deck cyclone the sfc low would surge n/ne toward
northeast ks & northwest mo on sun. The resulting strong "wrap-
around" associated rains would continue Sun & Sun night. The rains
should gradually taper Mon & Mon night.

No changes were made to remainder of the forecast period.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Friday morning)
issued at 645 am cdt Thu apr 27 2017
vfr conditions are expected for at least the first 12 hours as a
ridge of high pressure slides east into the missouri valley. Expect
to see diminishing aviation conditions this evening, as an area of
low pressure currently over the ok panhandle moves east across the
srn plains. As this low moves east, expect showers and some
embedded thunderstorms to develop across central ks and areas west
of i-135 early this evening. As the showers move in, CIGS will
diminish to MVFR and eventually ifr after midnight. Could also see
some MVFR vsbys in the heavier downpours this evening.

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.
