Update to aviation forecast discussion...

Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 344 pm cdt Thu jul 27 2017
as of 20z, mid and upper level ridging continues to position itself
across the central plains. At the surface, a stationary boundary was
positioned from just south of ict, east-northeastward into
central mo. Two mcvs responsible for thunderstorms across the area
and western ks this morning continue to weaken as they push south
and eastward. One or two thunderstorms are possible along the
boundary across the far southern counties this afternoon. As we
transition into the evening and overnight hours, the inverted
surface ridge will continue build in across the area. Weak dry air
advection will inundate the area, ushering in 60 degree dew
points. With decreasing clouds expected overnight, patchy fog is
expected virtually area wide. Although, the areas along the ks ne
border and area that received rainfall last night will stand the
best chances. Comfortable conditions are expected for Friday with
high temperatures in the low to middle 80s and low humidity!

Long term (Friday night through Thursday)
issued at 344 pm cdt Thu jul 27 2017
as we transition into the weekend the mid and upper level ridge
looks to amplify across the central and northern rockies, placing
the plains within northerly to northwest flow. Very comfortable
temperatures will continue through the weekend with highs in the
lower 80s. Guidance continues to hint at the potential for
convection off the high plains producing an MCV that traverses
western ks Saturday night Sunday morning. At this point, kept the
cwa dry Saturday night and Sunday. Dry and pleasant conditions are
expected to continue through the beginning next week with high
temperatures in the 80s and low in the 60s. Guidance continues to
show an upper trough traversing the central CONUS by the middle of
next week.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening)
issued at 630 pm cdt Thu jul 27 2017
vfr prevails through forecast period. Frontal boundary hovers
south of terminals with sct low and high clouds lingering through
sunrise, limiting chances for fog development. Light northerly
winds veer to the northeast below 10 kts tomorrow afternoon.

Top watches warnings advisories

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.
