Short term (this evening through Sunday night)
issued at 324 pm cdt Thu sep 21 2017
unseasonably warm weather will continue thru Saturday, though
welcome changes to much cooler and wetter weather is still in the
offing by early next week for central and southeast kansas. A
sultry south wind continues to bake the area this afternoon where
the airmass has become very unstable east of the dry-line with
mlcape values over 4000 j kg. While convergence and deep layer
shear is relatively weak, an approaching subtle upper shortwave
trof across the high plains may be able to overcome weakening
inhibition for isolated late day storms west of the turnpike.

Otherwise, the focus for more organized convection and meaningful
rainfall will remain situated across far western kansas Friday and
Saturday as the longwave upper trof continues to develop across
the western conus. This will keep central and southeast kansas in
the unseasonably warm southerly low level flow with little if any
focus for meaningful precip. This will begin to change Sunday into
Sunday night, as better lift from the approaching upper trof gets
closer and the associated surface front moves into western
kansas. This should result in increasing chances for
showers storms across central kansas.

Long term (Monday through Thursday)
issued at 324 pm cdt Thu sep 21 2017
the medium range models show a significant upper trof lifting
bodily northeast from the central rockies into the northern plains
on Monday into Monday night, while an additional shortwave dives
south and maintains the mean upper longwave across the southwest
conus into Tuesday. The result for central and southeast kansas
looks to be the advection of progressively cooler air in the wake
of the cold front with periodic lift along the southward sagging
baroclinic zone supporting numerous showers storms Monday night
through Tuesday with chances possibly lingering into Wednesday.

vfr conditions expected for all sites across central southern
kansas during the next 24hrs. Gusty south winds will continue
across the entire region today with surface pressure gradient
tightening up. The south winds will decrease a bit shortly after
sunset, however south winds will remain stronger for central
kansas overnight.

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.
