satellite imagery this morning shows a rather flat pattern in
place across the nation, with tropical storm cindy noted making
land fall on the gulf coast along the tx la border. Looking back
to the north a sizable trough is moving east across canada, with
the resulting lee side troughing inducing a surface low across
western nebraska with a frontal boundary extending east along the
nebraska south dakota border.

For today... There is not much to forecast besides temperatures as it
will be another hot day across the central plains. Southerly
winds and prefrontal compressional heating, ahead of the front to
our north, will keep temperatures hot across our section of the
country; and moisture streaming north form the gulf, and ts
cindy, will make it humid. This will result in another muggy day
with heat indices likely bubbling through the mid to upper 90s
this afternoon. However, there is relief from heat and humidity in
sight as the trough moving east across canada will shove the
frontal boundary to our north south later tonight and through
Friday. This will bring some cooler air to the region, which will
persist through the weekend, along with a chance for thunderstorms
late tonight into the early Friday morning hours. Current model
solutions don't advertise much activity in our section of
missouri, or any in kansas, as the front may be rather capped off
the farther southwest you go. This leaves areas of north central
into northeast missouri with the best chance for storms late
tonight as the nocturnal jet, sinking cold front, and eastward
moving canadian trough interact. Given the time of day, late at
night, that the front will move through, expectations are that
there will only be a minimal chance for any strong or severe
storms.

Rest of Friday and through the weekend... It should be rather nice.

The front that will sweep south Friday morning will usher in below
normal temperatures with highs bubbling through the 70s and lower
80s Friday through Monday as a trough carves out a space for
itself across the plains through early next week. This will also
keep the region mostly dry outside a fleeting chance of storms
late Sunday night into Monday morning as another little shortwave
rotates through the base of the trough late in the weekend.

vfr conditions will prevail through the day with a south wind.

Tonight a cold front will settle through the region, sparking some
thunderstorms activity. However, much of the activity is expected
to be east of the kansas-missouri state line, which has been
characterized by vcts for the hour around and after midnight into
early Friday morning.

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.
