Short term (this evening through Wednesday night)
issued at 250 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
this evening-tue:
it'll be a quiet start to the work-week as a broad longwave ridge,
that is aligned with the rockies this afternoon, moves across the
great plains tonight, then across the ms valley Mon & Mon night.

An almost equally broad mid-upper trof, that is following in it's
wake & is approaching the west coast this afternoon, should reach
the rockies Mon night when & where it'll eject a "lead" shortwave
across ok & tx. While mid-level moistening increases markedly when
the shortwave arrives, the lowest 8,000-10,000ft do not & as such
the dry forecast remains intact.

Tue-wed night:
the next chance for light rain should still arrive southeast ks
early Wed morning as the main upper-deck wave crosses nm W tx. The
surface counterpart would promote lower-deck moist advection from
the tx gulf coast that'll target southeast ks late Tue night early
wed morning where the assigned 30-35% pops make sense. The chances
for rain really ramp up Wed afternoon but the marked increases do
not occur until the troughs approach the ks mo border, & therefore
the much greater rain potential would occur in ar & mo wed
afternoon & night.

Long term (Thursday through Sunday)
issued at 250 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
all will remain quiet across the ks neighborhood as the next upper
deck ridge, though rapidly deamplifying as it spreads across the
the northern & central plains Fri & Fri night, dominates the great
plains as it forces the rapidly intensifying upper longwave trough
across the appalachians Fri & Fri night.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening)
issued at 522 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
vfr conditions are forecast at all sites throughout the period.

Surface ridge will move across area during the forecast
period. Return flow develops along west of a kict-ksln line
during the day on Monday. -howerton

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
