6/25/2017 - NOAA is having a major issue that impact the 7 day forecast load times. Many users are reporting problems. The issue has been reported.
5/23/2017 - Worked with NOAA again to speed up the 7 day forecast load times. Thanks to them for being responsive.
5/19/2016 - There were issues with the 3 day airport observation history. I switched to another data source. Let me know if you see any issues with the data feeds.

Rain will accompany a cold front across the region tonight.
Near term until 6 am this morning
The midnight update featured pop and temperature adjustments
based on radar, obs., and high res model trends.
Otherwise, showers and isolated thunderstorms will accompany the
cold front across the region tonight. System progression and nwd
shifting dynamics should limit QPF as per previous forecasts.
The only caveat to the line may be some localized gusts of 35
to 45 mph.
Short term 6 am this morning through Thursday
Low over missouri will lift northeastward toward the great lakes
through Tuesday. Expect high temperatures Tuesday to be realized
early as cold advection brings values down through the afternoon.
Cooling temperature aloft will support an eventual change to
snow showers, but boundary layer readings off the ridges will
not support accumulation until after dark. Thereafter, model
profiles do not indicate saturation deep enough into the snow
growth zone for very long, outside of any upslope later Tuesday
evening night, so any snow accumulation will be light or
Northwesterly flow will maintain snow chances, again with the
likelihood best in the terrain, through Wednesday before high
pressure builds overhead for the remainder of the period.|
Expect seasonable temperatures for Wednesday and Thursday.
Long term Thursday night through Monday
Building high pressure in advance of another low emerging over
the plains is likely to dry and warm conditions before rain
chances return for next weekend.
Aviation 05z Tuesday through Saturday
Vfr conditions should briefly deteriorate to MVFR overnight as
showers accompany a crossing cold front. A return toVFR is
expected after fropa, though a deterioration back to MVFR
stratocu CIGS is expected by afternoon evening with a crossing
upper trough and cold advection. Scattered rain or snow showers
are also expected with the trough.
A low level jet ahead of the cold front should result in llws
until fropa. A tightening pressure gradient and mixing should
result in gusty SW winds this aftn.
Restrictions are possible until high pressure builds Wed night.
Restriction potential returns with a Sat cold front.

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.
