What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Updated long term discussion...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 1218 am cdt Mon jun 25 2018
ongoing thunderstorm activity across the eastern half of the cwa
has diminished in severity and will be pushed east and southeast
out of the area by day break. Cloudy skies and gusty 25-35 mph
northwest winds will prevail. Temperatures will start in the mid
50s to low 60s and give way to clearing skies throughout the day
as high pressure and upper level ridging builds in from the rocky
mountains. Winds will diminish as well out of the northwest to
10-15 mph as the pressure gradient relaxes and the cold front
pushes further east and southeastward. Afternoon high temperatures
under mostly clear skies will warm into mid to upper 80s. After
midnight, winds will slowly turn out of the south and remain light
5-10 mph due to nocturnal cooling as the aforementioned high
pressure builds in from the northwest and surface ridging extends
across western kansas. Overnight low temperatures will be more
mild starting the day int eh low to mid 60s across the entire cwa.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)
issued at 104 am cdt Mon jun 25 2018
an upper level long wave trough will center over the rocky
mountain and western high plains region by the middle of the week
starting a warming trend through the end of the week and into the
weekend. High temperatures Tuesday will push into the mid to upper
90s as winds turn more out of the southwest giving the warming,
downsloping effect but should still be on the lighter side
10-15mph. Through the end of the week on Friday, high temperatures
will soar into the upper 90s and breaking 100 degrees in many
areas of the CWA with low temperatures starting the days very mild
in the low to mid 70s. Winds will pick up out of the southwest due
to a leeside trough over eastern colorado during the peak heating
hours of the afternoon gusting up to 25-30 mph. They will
diminish after sunset and in the overnight hours due to nocturnal
cooling and a temperature inversion setting up under mostly clear
skies capping the higher winds above the surface.

Saturday will again start off mild in the low to mid 70s, but a
weak cold frontal boundary will keep the afternoon high
temperatures in the low 90s being more seasonable for this time of
year. Winds will turn more out of the southeast 10-15 mph bringing
in ample low level moisture and chances for precipitation in the
evening and over night into Sunday. Chances this far out are
pretty low in the 20-30 pop range, but looks to be a decent set up
as the upper level shortwave propagates over the high plains over
a good moist southeast flow at the surface. Severe weather is not
out of the question, but too far out now to tell the extent of the
severity of any thunderstorm development.

Sunday will see a cooler start to the day in the mid 60s and high
temperatures around 90 degrees across the entire CWA in the wake
of the aforementioned frontal boundary that pushed through
Saturday afternoon and evening. Late afternoon thunderstorm
activity will be possible for Sunday as well as Monday due to the
southeast flow and decent instability as far as the models are
depicting at this point. Again, severity of these storms are not
certain at this point in time but will be something to watch for
by the end of the dry and hot week ahead. Temperatures will again
be in the low 90s for Monday being more on par with the average
for the end of june.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1150 pm cdt Sun jun 24 2018
ongoing thunderstorms and gusty northwest winds in wake of the
cold frontal boundary will continue through 08z before pushing far
enough east and eventually out of the CWA entirely. Some MVFR
ceilings and visibility in the heavier thunderstorm activity down
to 1500 feet and 2 miles. After 08z, expectVFR conditions and
skies scatter out through the rest of the day with northwest winds
12-15kts. These will start to return back out of the south late in
the TAF period and beyond as high pressure builds into western
kansas. No other weather elements are forecasted beyond the
ongoing thunderstorm activity with a warming and drying trend
starting for the rest of the week.

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.
