Issued at 342 am cdt Mon mar 18 2019
dry conditions will hold on for one more day. Surface high
pressure over the dakotas will slide southeast over the forecast
area today and continue east over the ohio valley tonight as
widespread rain is still on schedule to arrive Tuesday. River
forecast for sites along the missouri river are still expected to
reach moderate to major flood stage conditions this week.
Another quiet forecast today as an area of broad high pressure will
produce light winds and variable clouds will help keep
temperatures a couple of degrees below normal. However, an upper
level trough and associated weak low pressure system will produce
precipitation that will spread west to east across the CWA Tuesday
morning and eventually end by early Wednesday morning. Precipitation
may briefly start out as a snow rain mix for the northern
counties, but quickly change over to an all rain event. Recent forecast
models have trended slightly higher in regards to rainfall totals.
Amounts range from a 1 2" to 2 3" with highest amounts just north|
of the missouri river. Expect highs Wednesday to stay in the low
50s as cloud cover will slowly decrease during the day. High
amplitude upper level ridge over the rockies moves east into the
central us which will encourage temperatures to rebound into the
mid-upper 50s on Thursday and 60s by Friday. Looking into the
weekend, both GFS and ECMWF indicate widespread showers and
possibly isolated thunderstorms as the next system arrives late
Saturday into Sunday.

vfr conditions will continue the next 24 hours for all taf
locations. However, expect scattered showers to move into western
missouri late in the TAF period near 19 09z as a weak low pressure
system approaches the region. Winds will be light and variable for
much of today becoming southeasterly tomorrow morning 4-8 kts.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
