Weak high pressure will keep memorial day mostly dry with
Near term through tonight
Showers associated with an exiting cold front will diminish by
mid-morning as high pressure builds back in out of the west.
Temperatures will be near normal.
Dry conditions will be short-lived as the next shortwave
transitioning through the upper trough parked over the great
lakes rounds the base of the trough and scattered showers begin
to develop over the forecast area by early evening.
Temperatures should be close to or just above seasonal norms.
Short term Tuesday through Tuesday night
Scattered showers will continue on Tuesday as a cold front
crosses the forecast area. Have opted to include mention of
thunder late afternoon early evening, however, at this time
instability is progged to be marginal. Dry conditions will
follow Tuesday night as drier air moves in behind the front.
Long term Wednesday through Sunday
Unsettled conditions will continue the remainder of the week
with no change in the longwave pattern and shortwaves moving|
within the aforementioned upper trough impact the area.
By next weekend, the upper pattern becomes more zonal, and a
frontal boundary could stall out somewhere near or in our
region. This boundary could provide more focused rainfall
chances, but its placement remains in question. Temperatures
will remain near or just a few degrees below normal.
Aviation 10z Monday through Friday
A few showers and areas of MVFR local ifr should continue ahead
of a cold front, though a rapid clearing trend and return to
vfr is expected as the front crosses. Surface high pressure
ridging should maintain theVFR conditions through the evening.
A wind shift from SW to W is expected with fropa, with backing
winds this eve ahead of a weak approaching shortwave.
Restrictions are possible Tue Wed with an upper trough, and
again Fri with low pressure.

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.
