strong southerly flow over the southern plains, associated with a
lee-side low and troughing over eastern colorado, has resulted in
above average temperatures over the region. A warm front extends
from the surface low along the ks NE border into northern mo.

Elevated convection has developed over southern ia along the
elevated warm frontal boundary and is expected to mostly stay north
of our cwa, but a few showers may push into the far NE CWA early this
morning. This boundary is expected to shift northward today as the
lee-side low deepens ahead of an approaching shortwave trough. A
weak area of surface convergence will form over northern missouri in
association to this deepening low pressure and provide a potential
focus for daytime convection once convective temperatures is reached
over central mo. Model sounding indicate a possible cap around 8kft
so this could inhibit widespread convection, allowing only areas
with higher dewpoints in our eastern CWA to break this cap. Some
storms could be strong, but shear profiles do not indicate severe
weather. Strong WAA associated with this low will allow
temperatures in the region to push near record status with highs
in the mid 90s. The current record for the kansas city area is 95
with a forecast high of 95. Heat indices could reach near 100
degrees this afternoon, so caution will need to be taken for
anyone preforming outdoor activities. As the upper level shortwave
trough moves over the rockies the surface low will deepen and
develop towards the WAA over NE and ia on Thursday, developing a
cold frontal boundary that will have a large impact on our area.

Temperatures Thursday will be slightly lower than today, but a llj
ahead of the cold front will allow 30-35mph winds to mix down to the
surface, providing some relief to the heat and humidity. This push
of WAA ahead of the front will develop a pocket of MLCAPE 2000-3000
j kg over eastern NE Thursday afternoon. This coupled with bulk
shear values of 30-35kts could help to produce severe storms over
that region ahead of the cold front. As the boundary pushes to the
se these storms will likely become linear along the frontal boundary
and push into our region Thursday night after sunset. Fortunately
for our CWA the majority of the stability will dissipate after
sunset weakening severe weather chances as this line of storms
pushes through. Some storms could still be strong as they push into
nw missouri, but should slowly weekend as this line pushes to the
southeast. This boundary will quickly push through our area with it
residing south of our CWA by mid morning Friday. This will allow a
much cooler airmass to advect into the region with high temperatures
Friday in the lower 70s to even higher 60s up north. This fall like
weather will continue through the weekend high pressure and easterly
winds keep us cooler and drier. Southerly flow will return Sunday
allowing some moisture and heat to return to the area, but temps
will still remain in the upper 70s. A shortwave trough will move
over the region Monday helping to develop some scattered showers to
develop. Long wave troughing will push into the central plains
Wednesday setting off a more active pattern with precip chances
through the middle of the week.

vfr conditions are expected throughout the period. Winds will
shift slightly from southerly to southwesterly and increase to
10-15kts in the afternoon before weakening and shifting to the
south again. Llws will start to move into the area late in the
forecast period for northern missouri as strong winds, 35-40kts,
above the surface push into the region.

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.
