Short term (today through Sunday night)
issued at 249 am cdt Fri apr 20 2018
despite it spoiling some weekend plans, much needed beneficial
rainfall will grace central and southeast kansas. A vigorous upper
low center approaching the four corners region later this morning
will move steadily east across the central southern rockies
through this evening, before emerging across southern
kansas northern oklahoma during Saturday. While this system will
lack deep gulf moisture, overall dynamic lift associated with the
upper low appears rather impressive across the area, supportive
of a period of high categorical pops late tonight into Saturday.

Instability will likewise be lacking, though some weak elevated
cape is a possibility for the oklahoma border counties late
tonight so plan to include isolated thunder there. The relatively
higher QPF amounts are also expected across southern kansas this
weekend generally in the 0.60 to 0.80" range with locally higher
amounts possible. Precip chances will gradually diminish end from
west to east across the area Saturday night into Sunday as the
upper low moves east-southeast across the ozarks. Temperatures
will average below climo the next few days with Saturday being the
coolest raw day in the rain.

Long term (Monday through Thursday)
issued at 249 am cdt Fri apr 20 2018
temperatures look to average a bit below late april climo through
early next week. A shortwave upper trof moving across the northwest
conus is expected to track southeast across the northern
plains midwest Tuesday Tuesday night. This associated cold front
will move south across kansas and the plains with rather modest
rain chances.

ifr lifr conditions likely by daybreak. Precipitation will move
into krsl kgbd this evening. Precipitation reaches kcnu in the
predawn hours. Increasing moist low level upslope flow and
precipitation will result in lowest ceilings at krsl kgbd. -howerton

Issued at 249 am cdt Fri apr 20 2018

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
