Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 213 pm cdt Thu jul 27 2017
radar indicating some scattered afternoon convection continuing
across western kansas this afternoon. These showers were occurring
ahead of a 400mb PV and along the 700mb deformation zone.
Following the rap late today into early tonight these scattered
showers and isolated thunderstorms will slowly move southeast
towards oklahoma early early tonight.
An upper level ridge axis will remain nearly stationary over the
central and northern rockies overnight and Friday. Nam, gfs, and
ecmwf all showing another upper level wave rotating around this
upper ridge axis and out into the central plains on Friday,
however subtle differences on timing and track does exist. Even
with these subtle discrepancies it appears the better chances for
convection will be late Friday Friday night but there is a slight
chance for a few storms near the colorado border a little earlier
in the day.
Cloud cover and the forecast 900mb to 850mb temperatures at 18z
Friday and 00z Saturday continues to support another unseasonably
cool day. Highs in the 80s still appear reasonable with the cooler
temperatures in far southwest kansas.
Long term (Friday night through Thursday)
issued at 213 pm cdt Thu jul 27 2017
an extended wet period appears to be setting up for western
kansas given the northwesterly flow aloft and the location of
where the GFS and ECMWF develops a mid level baroclinic zone
across western kansas from Saturday through early next week. At
this time the most favorable area for widespread precipitation
this weekend will be west of a hays to coldwater line. Heavy
rainfall can be expected with these storms this weekend and given
the potential that several rounds of storms will occur over the|
same area day after day there will be a chance for some water
issues to develop, especially from Saturday night through Monday.
At this time will hold off issuing any type of flood watch
products but as confidence on location, amounts, and timing
improves this may be required.
Temperatures will stay unseasonably cool this weekend into early
next week based on the expected cloud cover and precipitation
chances. Highs mainly in the 80s still looks on track but if we
get a rain through most of the day the highs for that day could
easily end up being only in the upper 60s to lower 70s.
For the first half of the work week the better chances for
precipitation will begin to shift from far western kansas to north
central and south central kansas. Again the main hazards from
these storms early next week will be periods of heavy rainfall.

light surface winds are expected through this TAF period as broad
upper high pressure dominates the region, with weak upslope
boundary layer winds. Hrrr model does develop some post frontal
ifr category stratus late in the overnight which is reflected in
the southern terminals locations. Visibility is expected to remain
above the ifr category at this time.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
