Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 239 pm cst Sat nov 17 2018
focus continues to be on expected snowfall for mainly this
afternoon and into the evening, mainly between 2 pm and 10 pm.
Much of the support for this snow will come with a 725 mb
frontogenetic band that will quickly spin up and fade along with
the help of a minor jet streak near 300 mb. Higher snow to liquid
ratios could snag an inch or two with this combo, especially in a
band from near lexington to hastings to geneva hebron. The band on
radar this afternoon across a good portion of the
central northeast CWA should sag a bit south with time, although
latest hrrr suggests that it may be hesitant to do so. With the
combination of snow and brisk wind gusts, visibility will be below
one mile at times, and road surfaces are expected to get slick in
spots, so a winter weather advisory has been issued for areas
roughly south of highway 92 to the nebraska kansas state line.
By midnight, wind speeds should decrease significantly as the
surface pressure gradient relaxes.
This is a glancing blow of arctic air, as we will already be
getting some warm air advection by Sunday afternoon, and|
moderating temperatures in the upper 30s for highs near the tri-
cities, compared to the frigid lower 20s for this afternoon.
Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 239 pm cst Sat nov 17 2018
still a moderating trend for next week, but perhaps a bit of rain
southeast of the tri-cities by late Thursday night Friday.
Aviation (for the 00z kgri kear tafs through 00z Sunday)
issued at 526 pm cst Sat nov 17 2018
expect ifr conditions for the first couple hours as light snow
bands continue across the area. These frontogenetic-driven bands
should gradually drop south and winds will decrease this evening
as surface high pressure builds down from the north. Expect the
snow to be south of both terminals by midnight with clearing
expected overnight and during the day on Sunday.

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.
