Short term (this evening through Friday night)
issued at 355 pm cst Thu feb 21 2019
as the base of the upper trough moves across southern california
into western arizona, amplified southwest flow aloft will be in
place across the region tonight through Friday. Strong isentropic
upglide indicated on the 285k surface with low levels becoming
nearly saturated. Both the NAM and GFS models indicate light snow
developing tonight across western nebraska, lifting slowly north
overnight. There will also be a chance for freezing drizzle
tonight across southwest nebraska. Snowfall amounts 1 to 2 inches
On Friday, chances for freezing drizzle and snow to cover all of
western and north central nebraska, the exception is sheridan and
western cherry county, where mainly light snow expected. Up to an
inch snowfall north central, with little or no snowfall southwest.
Ice accumulations however could reach up to a tenth of an inch
near and east of highway 83. This attributed to saturation up to
725mb then much drier aloft.
For Friday night, a closed low will move from central new mexico
into the texas panhandle. Snow and freezing drizzle will be
likely. Only expecting a half inch or less snowfall east of
bassett through stockville, however light ice accumulation

trough moving into western nebraska, strong baroclinicity
indicated by the gfs, with a 50 mile wide band of moderate to
heavy snow possible. Snowfall amounts from 1 to 3 inches possible.

as the main upper trough swings across ion Saturday, the
potential for moderate snow accumulations exists. Models are in|
fair to poor agreement on a deformation zone to move east across
the area. The GFS remains to most organized in showing this, while
the NAM keeps it across kansas and southern nebraska. New
snowfall amounts from 1 to 3 inches possible east of ogallala
through valentine. Northwest winds could become strong at 30 to
40 mph in some areas causing blowing snow and reduced visibility.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
