Short term (this evening through Thursday)

19z water vapor imagery rap analysis indicated northerly flow
aloft as short wave trough moves across southern missouri as a
large 574 dm high extends to the northwest of the area. At the
surface, trough axis was stretched across eastern nebraska with
sfc high along the north dakota and montana border.
Fairly benign weather expected through tomorrow as winds will
diminish quickly as surface heating weakens. With clear skies and
a pronounced dry air mass over the area think potential is there
for a large diurnal swing in temperatures and have lowered
minimums towards the cold tail of solutions. Both rap nam
soundings suggest some potential for fog near mck, but looking at
the diurnal trend in dewpoints around the area it seems like
moisture layer is pretty shallow until you get farther into
nebraska, which makes me think fog threat will be minimal.
On Thursday, temperatures will climb into the 60s as sfc ridge
shifts east and southerly return flow develops. Aside from
increasing clouds from the south, do not expect any major weather

a closed low over the western u.S. Creates split flow aloft Thursday
night with a ridge over the central u.S. And a trough off the
northwest u.S. Coast. The closed low moves across the central plains
Friday evening through Saturday. As this occurs, the trough off the
northwest u.S. Coast weakens and creates another closed low over the
intermountain west while still connected to a strong closed low over
the gulf of alaska. High pressure over west-central canada cuts off
the closed lows over the CONUS from the low over the gulf of alaska
Sunday. The lows over the CONUS create a trough extending south into
the desert southwest Sunday.
The closed low over the gulf of alaska begins moving over north
america Monday evening pushing the previous closed lows eastward.|
The ridge rebuilds over the intermountain west Monday, moving east
over the central u.S. Tuesday. The closed low weakens as it moves
eastward, slowly becoming an open wave by Wednesday night over the
A surface low develops along the front range of the rockies in
colorado Thursday night into Friday morning bringing moisture into
the tri-state area. The low oscillates over eastern colorado through
Sunday morning before moving eastward. A cold front is expected to
move across the region Sunday night ahead of a strong surface high
over the northern plains and south-central canada. This high moves
southeast across the central u.S. Through Wednesday.
With low pressure impacting the region, chances for precipitation
return Friday morning through Monday. The main type of precipitation
will be rain with thunderstorms possible. Some snow mixed in with
the rain cannot be ruled out in east-central colorado early Saturday
morning and along and west of the kansas colorado border Sunday
night into early Monday morning.
Temperatures during the day will mostly be in the 50s and 60s with
the exception of the mid-40s to low 50s on Monday and up into the
low 70s on Wednesday. Lows will generally be in the 30s and 40s
dipping down into the upper 20s Monday night.

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.
