Update to aviation forecast discussion...

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 352 am cdt Thu mar 21 2019
today through tonight, an upper level trough was moving onshore
across the ca coast and will dig east-southeast across the
southwestern us tonight. A down stream h5 ridge axis located
across the high plains will shift east and amplify through
tonight across the plains. A surface ridge of high pressure
across western NE will build southeast across eastern ks tonight.

Solar insolation should counter balance the weak low-level caa,
along with the pbl increasing to depth up to 890mb, so high
temperatures should reach the upper 50s to lower 60s across the
cwa with light northwest winds. Light winds and clear skies will
allow overnight lows to dip down into the lower to mid 30s.

Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 352 am cdt Thu mar 21 2019
Friday, the upper level trough across the southwestern us will
lift northeast into the central and southern high plains by 00z
sat. An upper level trough west of the hudson bay region of canada
will dig south-southeast across the eastern great lakes into new
england and the mid atlantic states late Friday night. The
resulting low-level CAA will build a surface ridge axis southward
across the mid ms river valley. Easterly winds across the CWA will
begin to veer more to the southeast during the late afternoon
hours. Stronger ascent ahead of the h5 trough and richer gulf
moisture advection northward across western tx into western ks and
eastern co will result in showers and thunderstorms developing
across the central and southern high plains. The showers will
remain well west of the CWA as drier air parcels around the mid ms
river valley ridge axis advects west and northwest across eastern
ks. High clouds will increase through the day. High temperatures
will reach the lower to mid 60s.

Friday night through Saturday night, the upper level trough
across the central and southern high plains will lift northeast
across ks on Saturday and should rotate northeast across eastern
ne and western ia by 12z sun. A surface low across southwest ks
will deepen through Saturday afternoon and southerly winds will
advect richer residual gulf northward across central and eastern
ks late Friday night and through the day on Saturday. The
combination of isentropic lift and DCVA ahead the approaching
upper level trough axis will provide for periods of showers and
perhaps a few elevated thunderstorms. Mucapes look to be under 400
j kg and widespread deep moist convection southward into southern
tx will prevent mid level lapse rates from steepening. Therefore,
any thunderstorms on Saturday should only produced isolated
lightning strikes as the only hazard. The stronger ascent ahead
of the h5 trough will shift northeast of the CWA during the
overnight hours and the steadier showers and isolated elevated
thunderstorms will shift northeast of the CWA after 6z sun. Highs
on Saturday will only reach the 50s
Sunday through Monday, there may be a few showers during the morning
hours as the filling upper level trough across eastern NE western mo
shifts east across ia into central mo. The next upstream upper
level trough is much weaker on the 00z ECMWF run. There may be
enough ascent ahead of the h5 trough for scattered light showers
on Monday. Highs on Sunday will reach the lower to mid 60s with
some afternoon insolation. Stronger low-level CAA will cool highs
into the upper 40s to mid 50s on Monday.

Monday night through Thursday, the upper trough over the mid ms
river valley will dig southeast into the southeast us as a more
amplified h5 trough develops across new england. A broad upper
level ridge across the western us will move into the plains on
Wednesday, while another upper trough moves onshore across the
western us. The western h5 trough will move towards the plains
Wednesday night into Thursday, providing a chance for showers and
perhaps a few thunderstorms as richer gulf moisture advects
northward ahead of the upper trough. Highs on Tuesday will only
reach the mid to upper 50s. Look for a warm up by weeks end with
lower 70s possible on Thursday.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
