Updated for aviation discussion...

Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 255 pm cdt Mon aug 21 2017
water vapor imagery shows southern stream impulse lifting
northeast over western ks with a much more robust wave diving
southeast over southern manitoba. At the surface, cold front
stretches from extreme northeast nebraska into northeast colorado.

Moisture advection in the 850-700mb layer is already in place
across the area and is allowing sct showers and storms to develop,
especially over northeast ks. This moist mid level flow will
steadily increase as the evening hours approach which should
result in a slow increase in activity, especially over
east northeast ks. With precipitable water values over 2 inches
and a tropical connection(via water vapor imagery) very high
rainfall rates are likely. Contemplated throwing a couple counties
in a flood watch this evening, but still feel the most likely
areas to see widespread flooding will be just northeast of the
forecast area. Would still not be shocked if we issue a couple
flood warnings tonight along our northeast fringes. Still can't
rule out a few strong to severe storms tonight given some decent
instability and wet microburst potential.

Cold front is expected to sweep through the area Tue morning and
by out of the forecast area by the early afternoon hours. May see
some sct showers and storms near the front, but feel the more
widespread activity will be tonight with the continued mid level
moisture transport.

A much cooler and especially drier airmass will be welcomed across
the region behind the front with highs in mid to upper 80s Tue and
low to mid 80s for Wed and thu. Normal highs for this time of year
are around the 90 degree mark.

Long term (Friday through Monday)
issued at 255 pm cdt Mon aug 21 2017
there is still decent model agreement between the GFS and ECMWF in
lifting some upper energy out of the desert SW great basin and
across the central southern plains Thu night through Fri night. At
the same time there is also good agreement in tracking a tropical
system across the gulf and into SW tx by Thu night. Right now
medium range models keep this system over southern tx. Even though
we will eventually get some better moisture up here later in the
week, confidence is high that afternoon highs will remain below
normal.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Tuesday evening)
issued at 643 pm cdt Mon aug 21 2017
expect scattered to numerous clusters of showers and
thunderstorms to impact the region this evening and overnight, as
a strong cold front approaches from the northwest, interacting
with rich monsoonal moisture streaming in from the southwest.

Wondering if the most widespread numerous activity will be
generally along east of i-135. Covered this threat with vcts for
now, but anticipate tempo groups for tsra will eventually be
needed for a handful of TAF sites. Winds will switch to
north northeasterly and gusty in wake of the frontal passage later
tonight into Tuesday morning, along with a transient zone of ifr
or MVFR ceilings possible. Only went sct015 for now, but will
continue to monitor for 06z TAF issuance.

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.
