Short term (this evening through Sunday)
issued at 323 pm cdt Sat jul 21 2018
the main story for the next day will be the return to more active
weather. Storms arrive tonight, mainly across western nebraska and
the eastern panhandle. There is a marginal chance for severe weather
across the western row of counties late tonight. For the most part,
the majority of the severe weather will stay west of our forecast
area with just a stray isolated thunderstorm or two making into the
western fringes. With instability diminishing across the region,
thunderstorms will struggle to maintain severe criteria. Lingering
clouds will keep temperatures on the mild side overnight. Expect
overnight lows to remain in the mid to upper 60s.
For Sunday, mostly dry conditions remain in place. High temperatures
will rise into the upper 80s to low 90s. Increasing clouds
throughout the day should be expected as the next frontal system
moves into the region. Storms could initiate as early as 3pm cdt as
this front tracks southeast across central nebraska.
Long term (Sunday night through Saturday)
issued at 323 pm cdt Sat jul 21 2018
the majority of the storms will develop Sunday evening after 6 pm
cdt as a cold front tracks southeast across central nebraska. This
front combined with significant instability across the region will
provide a favorable environment for severe storms. At this time, spc
guidance only has a marginal risk out for portions of northern and
north central nebraska. This will likely be adjusted slightly over
the next forecast cycle or two. Regardless, the major threats for
the storms Sunday night will likely be large hail and gusty winds.
Stay tuned for any updates over the next 12 hours.
Western and north central nebraska will get a brief reprieve from
active weather on Monday as high pressure builds south into the
central plains. Chances for rain and thunderstorms return on Tuesday
night and last through the end of next week. Confidence is very low|
with timing and location of thunderstorm development for next week.
As a result, will only put in chance pops in the forecast at this
For temperatures in the extended period... The passage of the cold
front on Sunday night will allow a cooler airmass to move into the
area. High temperatures through next week will only be in the low to
mid 80s. Overnight lows from Monday night through Friday night will
drop into the upper 50s to low 60s.
Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Sunday evening)
issued at 600 pm cdt Sat jul 21 2018
regional radar shows storms upstream, especially focused across
the palmer divide and cheyenne ridge regions on north. Current
thinking is these storms upstream will continue to develop and
move eastward into the eastern panhandle and extreme southwest
neb, isolated-scattered in coverage, most likely between 7-10 pm
mdt. Thereafter concerns turn to how far east they can progress.
Current thinking is these storms will then decrease in coverage
and diminish late evening on as they move across far western neb.
As such, no mention of thunderstorms in the klbf TAF or kvtn taf.
But will need to monitor their progress evolution. This continues
to be supported by guidance even with a modest southerly low-
level jet tonight. Skies mostly cloudy tonight withVFR conditions
will become mostly partly sunny in the morning with increasing
sky cover tomorrow afternoon across western neb. Front approaches
tomorrow with increasing chances beginning in the afternoon
peaking in the evening.

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.
