Short term (this evening through Wednesday)
issued at 304 pm cdt Tue apr 24 2018
a cold stable springtime rain episode will be developing later this
evening, and extend into the overnight. Good agreement exists among
the short term models (rap hrrr hiresnmm arw and 12 4km nam) for
a narrow mesoscale rain band to develop across our western
counties after 00z and morph eastward into a more broad region of
rain across the central kansas counties. The overall signal
suggest higher rain fall amounts around a quarter inch or more in
the eastern counties, with much more variable, and lower amounts
farther southwest. Very cold and cloudy conditions should be left
in the wake of the rain shield that moves into oklahoma by around
12z or so. Lingering showers may be possible around coldwater
pratt and medicine lodge to start the day Monday morning. The nam,
and hiresarw nmm develop a dusting of snow near syracuse between
6 utc and 9 z, more likely a mix if anything. Temperatures are
likely to fall into the low 30s, but with the clouds, it is not
likely a frost setup. Models are in favor of being well above (4
to 5 degrees) the hard freeze temperature criterion as well.

Long term (Wednesday night through Tuesday)
issued at 304 pm cdt Tue apr 24 2018
a secondary upper wave in the northwest flow will is likely to move
rapidly through on Thursday, however the system is more moisture
starved, and with less mid level forcing for precipitation. An
upper thermal ridge is in place over the high plains region for the
weekend before the ECMWF gfs develops southerly surface
flow dryline, pattern over western kansas by Monday.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Wednesday evening)
issued at 638 pm cdt Tue apr 24 2018
widespread MVFR and periodic ifr conditions expected through the
morning ahead of an upper-level low. Areas of rain showers will
also develop this evening, from east to west across southwest
kansas, which will bring lowered visibilities. Expect the rain to
begin ~0-1z at gck and ~2-4z at remaining terminals. Showers
activity will end at all terminals before sunrise. Flying
conditions will slowly improve late morning tomorrow as the upper
low moves east.

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.
