Issued at 305 am cdt Wed apr 25 2018
an upper level shortwave is moving southeast through nebraska
currently. Forcing associated with this shortwave is leading to
widespread rain in south central ks. This rain diminishes in
coverage in northeastern ks and northern mo with more rain in ia.

Models are in good agreement filling the area in between the
widespread rains in ks and the more scattered returns in ia,
northern mo and northeastern ks. Radar returns in eastern NE show
some showers developing so that gives confidence that the models
are correct. Regardless, the heavier, more widespread rainfall
will likely be from eastern ks through south central mo,
following closely the track of the upper level shortwave. Overall,
it looks like most of the area will see rain through much of the
day with as much as a half to three quarters of an inch of rain
possible in that area from eastern ks through southern mo. The
cloud cover and rain will keep temperatures on the cool side
today. Temperatures will likely be in the low to middle 50s where
the heaviest rain occurs. In northeastern mo, highs may be able to
climb into the middle 60s.

After this rain moves out of the area, it looks like quiet weather
with seasonal temperatures in the upper 60s through Saturday and
warmer into the mid to upper 70s on Sunday. The warm weather
continues into the start of the next work week with highs
approaching 80 degrees Monday and Tuesday. The southerly flow aiding
this warmup will also bring better moisture into the area. This may
result in our next decent chance for showers and storms Tuesday
evening into Wednesday.

light rain will continue moving to the southeast today, affecting
those south and west of kirksville. MVFR visibilities and ceilings
are accompanying this rain, with some periods of ifr ceilings,
mainly in ks. The MVFR ceilings and visibilities should move with
the rain, with the visibilities coming back up this afternoon and
rain and lower ceilings exiting the area tonight around sunset.

Skies should clear quickly and will remainVFR for the rest of the
period. Winds will be light this TAF period, and will shift to
the northwest overnight as the surface high pressure moves through
our area.

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.
