Short term (today through Thursday night)
issued at 355 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
forecast highlights:
1) strong S SW winds causing increasingly elevated grassland fire
danger Wed afternoon.

2) a wet end to the work-week.

Today & tonight:
all remains quiet across the immediate ks neighborhood as massive,
though gradually deamplifying, upper-deck ridge spreads across the
great plains, although we're keeping watch on shallow fog behavior
in SE ks where aligned with semi-inverted sfc ridge extending from
the great lakes clear to west tx.

Wed & Wed night:
a strong, deep upper-deck wave will sprint E SE across manitoba &
ontario. This wave would induce pronounced lower-deck cyclogenesis
along the front range. Dry adiabatic layer is deep which would no
doubt promote deep-layer mixing across the ks neighborhood. Models
have been very consistent in hitting the wind throttle quite hard.

It's increasingly likely that a wind advisory would be needed for
all areas Wed afternoon. It'll be much warmer with highs across
central ks likely reaching 75-80 while the rest of kict country
reaches the lower-mid 70s. This combination would no doubt cause
elevated grassland fire danger concerns. You should refer to the
"fire weather" section for details. The front range sfc low will
creep across the co ks border late Wed night as a strong,
positively-tilted upper-deck wave surges SE across manitoba &
ontario. The tandem would drag a cold front perhaps as far S SE as
central ks late Wed night very early Thu morning. With the
greatest thrust of the upper-deck wave occurring from ontario to
hudson bay the front decelerates as it creeps into central ks thu
morning. Lower-deck moist advection would be sufficient to induce
scattered showers & thunderstorms to develop along the NE sector
of the kict forecast area.

Thu & Thu night:
though slow-moving, the front will sag further into ks which would
increase rain embedded thunderstorms. The slow SE progress of the
front would enhance chances for increased rainfall Thu night. The
deep-layer shear is impressive which would increase thunderstorm

Long term (Friday through Monday)
issued at 355 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
fri & Fri night:
the intense, deep cyclone that'll be situated over hudson bay will
swing a 2nd strong wave se. This wave would kick the cold front
across ks, enabling much cooler air air to surge into ks.

Next weekend:
should be predominantly dry.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Tuesday night)
issued at 1133 pm cdt Mon mar 25 2019
main aviation concern will be some fog late tonight into early tue

Low clouds quickly dissipated after sunset with what is left of
them exiting far southeast ks now. Light and variable winds have
started to overspread the area. Confidence is increasing in some
patchy fog late tonight into Tue morning. If we do see some, feel
that it will not be dense and should be fairly shallow. The two
sites we have the most confidence in is kcnu, where moisture is
slightly deeper, and khut due to local effects. Winds are
expected to flip around to the south and increase by the afternoon
hours with areas west of i-135 seeing gusts in the 20-25 mph

Fire weather
Issued at 355 am cdt Tue mar 26 2019
the concern is wed, as S SW winds greatly increase to 25-35 mph
sustained with 40-45 mph gusts. At this time, a very high fire
danger is anticipated Wed afternoon but stay tuned.

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.
