Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 242 pm cst Sat nov 18 2017
blustery evening in the wake of todays precipitation. Strong winds
just off the surface and the pressure gradient behind the cold
front are both contributing to winds out of the NW sustained in
excess of 20 mph, gusting 30 to 40mph. Holding on to the advisory
through the evening hours as some gusts are still kicking up to
over 40mph in the advisory area. Some lingering rain snow showers
moving into eastern il should be over shortly after sunset.

Colder air moving into the region will drop quickly before
midnight. Although the ground is warm, some elevated
surfaces bridges with residual water left from today may get
slick once temps drop below freezing. Temperatures are expected
to drop into the 20s by early morning. Tomorrow, expecting plenty
of Sun as high pressure starts to build back into the region.

However, temperatures will only climb into the mid to upper 30s
with winds becoming more westerly by sunset.

Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 242 pm cst Sat nov 18 2017
temps drop into the 20s again on Sun night, though a couple
degrees warmer than tonight as winds come around to the
south southwest. Temps begin to warm briefly for Monday with
southerly flow as midlevel ridge shifts into the mississippi river
valley. Quasi zonal flow starts to shift to a more amplified
pattern as the next system moves into the upper midwest great
lakes for Tuesday. Cold front remains dry for now, but the last
run has broken off a large piece of the energy, dropping a closed
upper low into the southeastern conus. Watching tues
night Wednesday for changes in the forecast potential for
showers in the midwest between the two waves. Not enough
support moisture in the models just yet. Lows dropping into the
20s tues night and Wed night in response to the airmass shift.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Sunday evening)
issued at 531 pm cst Sat nov 18 2017
MVFR CIGS and strong gusty NW winds affecting central il terminals
early this evening. CIGS will clear rapidly for kbmi-kdec
westward, becomingVFR by 02z, however CIGS look to take several
hours to clear at kcmi. Another disturbance looks to clip some
northern il terminals late tonight, and could potentially bring
MVFR CIGS back to the area, but for now kept CIGS above 3000 ft
agl. Winds initially NW 12-20 kts with higher gusts, decreasing
gradually overnight to 10-15 kts with less gustiness.

Ilx watches warnings advisories
None.

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.
