Updated long term...
Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 1220 am cst Sat feb 24 2018
a shortwave trough will move out of the rockies into western
kansas by late Saturday afternoon. Areas of freezing drizzle look
to continue through mid morning for much of kansas as isentropic
lift looks to be favorable ahead of a low pressure center in
eastern new mexico. The conditions will quickly change as a cold
front will sweep the majority of the low clouds and moisture away
by around noon to the mid afternoon for the region.
High pressure moves in Saturday night keeping us mainly clear
until the next shortwave moves out of the rockies bringing back
some cloud cover to the area. This will also start to push out the
colder air mass as 850 temps warm through Monday.
Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 119 am cst Sat feb 24 2018
next shortwave will move out of the rockies into the central
plains from Sunday afternoon into Sunday night. It will mainly
bring cloud cover as there won't be much moisture to work with.
This will also start to push out the colder air mass from the
region as the 850 temperatures start to warm from Sunday night
Monday should be warmer with zonal to slight southwest flow aloft
and surface winds should pick up in the afternoon with a low in
eastern colorado deepening. Focus will then turn to a pacific low|
off the california coast which will could potentially be a weather
maker either for the central or souther plains by Thursday. Euro
is the slower and farther south track while the GFS is a little
north and moves the shortwave through quicker.
Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Saturday night)
issued at 1119 pm cst Fri feb 23 2018
lifr conditions will be expected through at least 15z for all taf
locations and may continue up to 18z for ddc and hys. Low level
moisture in the form of mist and freezing drizzle will be present
in the lower level clouds with only minor accumulations of ice. A
cold front will switch the winds to the northwest starting at
around 15z for lbl and gck with winds quickly picking up to 20-30
kts by 18z. Winds switch and pick up at ddc and hys around 18z.
This should clear out the lower level moisture and visibility will
improve and ceilings will rise.

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.
