Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 335 am cst Sat nov 17 2018
the NAM and rap models suggest several hours of seeder-feeder
developing south of highway 2 today with the axis of best snow
generally along interstate 80 around ogallala. The forecast uses a
blend of the 06z NAM and 00z href for 1 to 3 inches of snow. The
hrrr is in good agreement with the rap and NAM models. Snow growth
potential is good with a saturated column up to 500mb and
temperatures in the column around -10c. Lift is modest but the rap
and hrrr signal a very favorable zone around ogallala where 4 inches
of snow may accumulate. Since these models often over-forecast snow
amounts, a blended approach lowers forecast amounts to around 3
inches with highest amounts across deuel county.

A winter weather advisory is in place today and early this evening
and until the atmosphere moistens, a period of lift freezing drizzle
lasting 1 to 2 hours may develop. This feature is already underway
across sheridan county but the ndor travel website indicates no
travel problems at this hour.

Long term (Sunday through Friday)
issued at 335 am cst Sat nov 17 2018
an amplified upper ridge centered over the great basin slowly shifts
east this week with its axis bisecting western nebraska by
Wednesday. A couple shortwaves and cool fronts will ride the ridge,
but due to dry air in the low levels, the only result will be
increased cloud cover. The expanding ridge will also lead to gradual
warmer temperatures, further aided by WAA and downslope flow at h85.

Highs remain cool on Sunday before the ridge kicks in (near 40f),
but widespread 50s are expected by Tuesday. The mildest conditions
are likely Wed and Thu when a 10c thermal ridge ejects onto the high
plains, when some locations could push 60f. By week's end, the ridge
breaks down over the upper midwest and a slightly stronger cold
front comes through the forecast area. Moisture appears sparse
overall, but the forcing may be enough to squeeze out a few rain or
snow showers on Friday.

Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Sunday morning)

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.
