Short term (this evening through Thursday)
issued at 245 am mdt Thu apr 26 2018
today, decreased pops for most of the area as guidance has
trended downward from previous runs. That said, there is still
very slight chances for our eastern counties. Expecting, if any
thing, trace rainfall from sprinkles. Winds are still on track to
be strong following the passage of the front. Winds will range
from 30-35 mph with gusts 40-45 mph. Highs today will only reach
the low to mid 60s across the tri-state area.

Tonight, winds will calm and clouds will clear out. Expecting lows
to be in the mid 30s. Afterward, expecting a warming trend
throughout the rest of the week.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 345 am mdt Thu apr 26 2018
fri-fri night: expect clear skies, a warming trend, and light
variable winds as an upper level ridge builds atop the rockies and
high plains.

Sat-wed: the ridge aloft will migrate eastward from the
rockies high plains to the mississippi river valley sat-mon as an
upper level low moves ashore the pac NW and a deep (albeit broad)
upper trough evolves over the western conus. Low-level southerly
return flow will commence during the day Saturday as a lee cyclone
develops in response to upstream height falls and increasingly
diffluent flow aloft over the rockies. Although moisture return
will initially be limited - increasingly rich low-level moisture
is expected to advect poleward beneath a pronounced elevated mixed
layer over the central plains late this weekend and early next
week as an h85 ridge progresses eastward from tx (sat) to the
southeast coast (mon). The evolution of the lee cyclone and
associated boundaries over the tri-state area sat-tue will highly
depend upon the evolution of the western CONUS trough and numerous
small amplitude waves therein, in addition to upstream convection
(sct high-based convection could develop in eastern colorado and
propagate downstream into western kansas late Saturday aft eve).

Although confidence remains low with regard to convective
evolution (particularly mon-tue), guidance continues to indicate
a synoptic pattern supportive of episodic severe weather over
portions of the central southern plains early next week.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Thursday night)
issued at 1132 pm mdt Wed apr 25 2018
main concern for aviators will be strong winds behind a cold front
moving across the tri-state area this morning. Winds will decrease
in the afternoon, but regardless,VFR conditions are expected to
prevail at both terminals. There is a chance of some light
showers bringing in brief MVFR conditions to the area.

GOES Local Image of CentralPlains    EDIT
NOTE: East coast views moved to GEOS-16. They are experimental and not well supported by NOAA so they may not be correct so be warned. This change required redoing a large amount of the GOES code. If the image you are expecting is not showing, please let me know. You may need to use the EDIT function to update your location.

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.
