Updated aviation discussion...

Short term (today through Wednesday night)
issued at 205 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
a shortwave trough over saskatchewan this morning is progged to
dig southward across the northern plains today while emerging
across the central plains tonight. Isentropic upglide low-mid lvl
warm air advection will increase ahead of this system bringing
increasing chances for rain tonight, especially across our central
kansas counties along the nose of the llj. Meanwhile, another
seasonable day is expected across the region today with highs in
the 50s low 60s. Some mid and upper level clouds may keep some
locations a few degrees cooler compared to the past couple of
days. Chances for precipitation will shift east and southeastward
across the area on Tue through Tue night while gradually
diminishing from west to east as we move through the day on Wed as
large-scale forcing for subsidence arrives in the wake of the
trough. Seasonable temperatures are anticipated tue-wed with highs
mostly in the 50s low 60s and lows in the mid upper 30s.

Long term (Thursday through Sunday)
issued at 205 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
an amplified mid upper flow is progged at the beginning of the period
with ridging across the central conus. Chances for showers and
thunderstorms will begin to increase toward the end of the week
and into the weekend as a series of slow moving mid upper troughs
rotate through the mean h5 trough situated across the
rockies central plains states. A wet and unsettled pattern is
anticipated through the upcoming weekend with mild temperatures
and an increased potential for precipitation.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Tuesday morning)
issued at 626 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
latest satellite imagery shows just a few transient mid-level
clouds of roughly 7,000ft making their way from northwest to
southeast across the forecast area early this morning. Skies are
expected to remain mostly clear today and tonight with winds
slowly transitioning from blowing out of the northeast to blowing
out of the southeast this afternoon. ExpectVFR flight conditions
throughout the next 24 hours. At the end of the period (near 12z
Tuesday morning), chances for rain may begin to work into central
kansas in the vicinity of krsl and ksln as a shortwave trough
approaches the area overnight tonight.

Fire weather
Issued at 205 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
relatively low fire weather concerns are expected through the
upcoming week with multiple opportunities for rain and no
intrusions of dry windy conditions.

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.
