Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 235 pm cdt Sat sep 23 2017
todays forecast is very similar to the last few days... And the few
changes in the forecast model blends have been making the rain
more scant in the middle of next week. The weather map this
afternoon, high pressure dominates the eastern half of the
country. A deep upper level trof is keeping south southwesterly
flow up the leeside of the rockies and in the high plains. For the
overnight, similar to last night, unseasonably warm with very
little in the way of cloud cover. Somewhat light winds with more
of a southerly component in the west... More likely to be light and
variable in the east with a lack of a pressure gradient closer to
the ridge. For tomorrow... Another hot one, mostly sunny with max
temps into the low 90s.

Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 235 pm cdt Sat sep 23 2017
dewpoints have dropped a degree or two each day for the past few
days as drier air aloft gets mixed down to the surface in the heat
of day. Tomorrows highs in the low 90s will be very close to the
apparent temp. Still somewhat humid for the region, hot for the
season, and light winds will not offer much relief. The heat lasts
into Monday, and to a lesser extent on Tuesday. The extended
forecast remains a struggle between the erosion of the eastern
ridge due to hurricane maria drifting close to the atlantic coast,
and a very amplified western trough. Another quick short
wave piece of energy moves out of the nw, passing into the
northern plains upper midwest and dragging a cold front through
the forecast area. However, the hot and dry airmass in the region
keeps that system starved from moisture... And the models have
become more and more dry with the last few runs. Models have
switched back to a slower solution... And confidence crumbling with
the better chances for precip. At this point... Tuesday night
through Wednesday has scattered slight chances in the forecast.

Even without the precip chances, however, the temperatures should
return to closer to normal temps for the end of the week.

Aviation (for the 18z tafs through 18z Sunday afternoon)
issued at 1238 pm cdt Sat sep 23 2017
light winds south southeasterly this afternoon, withVFR
throughout the forecast for ilx terminals. Only concern for the
forecast is vertical development of the CU in the west southwest
potentially lending towards very isolated sprinkles this
afternoon. Not enough for a mention yet, andVFR sct cirrus with
light winds yet again tonight.

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.
