just completed an update. Main change was to warm up high
temperatures today in eastern portions of the area which should be
in the warm sector all day.
Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 307 am mdt Wed sep 19 2018
story for today will be the passing cold front across the tri-
state area. Pops will hang in through tomorrow evening. Scattered
thunderstorms are expected, and those impacted can expect
moderate to heavy rainfall, hail, and locally gusty winds.
Although severe weather is not expected, there still a chance for
a severe storm or two to develop.
Come Thursday, we finally drop back to seasonable averages. While
some showers and storms will linger in the afternoon hours, severe
parameters have decreased, and no severe weather is expected.
Highs will only get into the upper 70s to mid 80s, and drop to the
mid 50s Thursday night into Friday.
Friday, CAA will continue to take over the tri-state area further
dropping daily highs to the lower 70s and lows into a brisk and
chilly night near 50 degrees.
Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)

upper level southwesterly flow Saturday as a shortwave trough moves
east over oklahoma. An upper level trough enters the northern plains
Sunday night. This trough then begins to build southward Monday
night extending south into north texas by Wednesday night. Westerly|
flow aloft will accompany the trough until Tuesday night. By
Wednesday night, the trough should begin moving east. This will
leave the tri-state region under the left side of the trough leading
to northwesterly flow.
This weekend, temperatures in the mid-70s to mid-80s are expected
under sunny skies. A cold front is expected to move south-southeast
across the tri-state region Monday afternoon and night. This will
lead to cooler temperatures Tuesday and Wednesday.
Accompanying the cold front will be chances for precipitation.
Thunderstorms are possible Monday night with showers continuing

through the early part of the TAF period,VFR conditions are
expected to prevail at the mccook and goodland terminals. This
afternoon, a cold front will move across the tri-state area
bringing scattered thunderstorms to the terminals. This will bring
quick winds and strong gusts. Low confidence on exact timing and
extent of impacts, so amendments will be issued as confidence

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. 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.
