Synopsis
Dry weather is expected today under building high pressure. Low rain
chances return with a weak Wednesday disturbance.

Near term until 6 pm this evening
Only made cosmetic changes with the 10am update. Otherwise, dry
weather and a clearing trend are expected today under building sfc
high pressure and dry advection. Highs are expected to be near
seasonal levels.

Short term 6 pm this evening through Thursday night
Dry weather and mostly clear skies should continue tonight as the
high moves east. A weak upper shortwave trough could interact with
daytime destabilization Wednesday, resulting in mainly isolated
showers and thunderstorms. Model progged soundings indicate
convective thresholds briefly being met, if at all. Kept coverage
isolated due to this and lack of a significant trigger.

Dry weather should return Wednesday night through Thursday night
under building ridging and rising 500mb heights. Above average
temperatures are expected through the period.

Long term Friday through Monday
Shower and thunderstorm chances return later Fri through part of the
weekend as a trough across the midwest and canada approaches and
crosses the region. Models are trending drier Sunday as the trough
shifts east and high pressure begins to build in. Ridging should
maintain dry weather Monday. Above average temperatures should return
to more seasonable levels Sunday and Monday.

Aviation 18z Tuesday through Sunday
Vfr conditions are forecast for the TAF period. Scattered to broken
cumulus this afternoon will dissipate by evening, leaving a mostly
clear sky overnight. Wind gusts out of the west of 20 to 25 knots
this afternoon will diminish tonight. However, the wind is not
expected to become calm, which will help to prevent fog formation
tonight.

A weak shortwave may combine with decent instability and a lake
breeze boundary to generate scattered showers and storms starting
around midday on Wednesday, mainly near and north of i-80 initially.

Confidence is too low to mention in TAF at this time.

Outlook
No widespread ifr is forecast.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
