Updated aviation...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 1200 am cdt Wed sep 26 2018
surface high pressure continued to build into kansas as of
midnight, with light north winds and strong radiational cooling
already allowing many locations to fall into the 40s. Increasing
mid and high clouds are expected to slow down the cooling process
over the next few hours, but still mid 40s will be common at
sunrise.

Wednesday will be a pleasant fall day. Broken overcast midlayer
clouds will scatter out by midday, with plenty of Sun this
afternoon. Strong high pressure will persist over SW ks through
about midday, keeping winds light and variable. After 1 pm through
sunset, high pressure will weaken and slide eastward out of
kansas, allowing a gentle south wind to return at 10-20 mph, with
the strongest winds along the co ks border. With 850 mb
temperatures holding around 10c and poor mixing, afternoon
temperatures will struggle to reach 70, with most of the day spent
in the 60s. Get outdoors if you can!
clear and cool again tonight, with radiational cooling again
delivering more 40s. 00z MOS appeared a bit cool with return flow
established, so stayed a few degrees above that guidance.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 125 am cdt Wed sep 26 2018
a long stretch of dry weather is expected through this period,
with little if any impacts. The forecast is therefore reduced to
timing wind shifts and temperature flucuations with dry frontal
passages.

Thursday will be much warmer. With a net gain of +8c at 850 mb
over Wednesday, and the assistance of a downslope SW breeze
component, temperatures will rebound to the upper 70s east and
lower 80s west Thursday afternoon.

The next cold front will arrive during the daylight hours Friday,
and as expected, the forecast for Friday has trended colder. The
first arctic high of the season (1032 mb) is forecast to be over
eastern montana Friday morning, and into the dakotas Friday
evening. This will push a strong cold front through into a warm
well-mixed atmosphere during the daylight hours Friday, resulting
in strong N NE winds. Fully expect that the current wind grids
for Friday are not strong enough. Accepted guidance with highs in
the 60s, but would not be surprised if this continues to trend
down some more. Moisture will be limited with this frontal
passage. Perhaps a shower in the SE zones late Friday; am not
expecting much. A slightly better opportunity for some rain
showers is evident Friday night and Saturday morning, when models
indicate warm air advection initiating light overrunning rain over
the stable boundary layer. Retained low pops for this, but it
does not appear to be significant.

A rapid warming trend is expected over the weekend, with 70s
Saturday afternoon and 80s Sunday afternoon. Strong south winds
return by Sunday, with gusts to near 40 mph.

Monday and Tuesday will bring in october on a warm and dry note,
with highs in the 80s both days with strong south winds
continuing.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning)
issued at 500 am cdt Wed sep 26 2018
vfr will continue through this TAF period. A mid level cloud deck
will persist for a few hours this morning, then scatter out
beginning around 18z. Strong high pressure ridging will keep
surface winds light and variable through 18z wed. After 18z, high
pressure exits eastward, allowing light south winds to return
to all airports at around 10 kts. Some gusts to near 20 kts at
gck lbl by late afternoon. Excellent flying weather tonight, with
skc and light south winds.

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.
