primary forecast focus is on ending rain chances this afternoon and
The 500mb trough continues to churn over the ar mo ozarks, while
scattered rain showers continue to stream across portions of western
missouri, primarily south of the i-70 corridor. The upper low has
been slow to move eastward today, with high pressure aloft resulting
in a persistent rex blocking pattern over the midwest. For the
most part, rain has likely ended for the majority of the kansas
city metro. Mostly cloudy skies will persist though as the region
remains on the northwest backside of the 500mb trough as it slowly
exits through the overnight into Monday.
Brief ridging will take hold, building from the southwest, off the
western high plains from northeastern new mexico and across kansas.
This should allow for temperatures to rebound as mostly sunny skies
develop in the afternoon across much of the area. Highs tomorrow
will push the mid to upper 60s maybe 70. The 500mb ridge will slide
east through Tuesday, ahead of an advancing short wave trough. The
associated frontal boundary will push into the region late Tuesday
into early Wednesday, bringing another chance of light rain to the
region. Mid-range guidance is in decent agreement with the|
south southeast track of the upper trough, with the better rain
chances focused over eastern kansas into southwestern missouri,
nearest the track of the low center. Chances will taper off through
the late Wednesday into early Thursday.
Late in the week, another fast moving 500mb short wave trough will
bring a quick moving frontal boundary across the area Thursday into
Friday, with low rain chances.
Overall, springlike weather will be welcome this coming week, with
highs generally in the mid to upper 60s most days and some low rain

scattered showers will steadily end through the afternoon into the
evening from north to southeast. TAF sites are expected to remain
vfr through the period, with mid-level clouds lingering.
Northeasterly winds will gradually shift to more northerly through
the evening and overnight.

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.
