Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 244 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
a weak cold front currently along the i-55 corridor will quickly
push into indiana this evening... Accompanied by little more than a
shift in the wind. The airmass behind the front is not much
cooler than the one presently across the area, as evidenced by
upstream temperatures in the middle 40s as far northwest as south
dakota. As a result, will trend closer to the warmer side of
numeric guidance... With overnight lows in the middle to upper 20s
and highs on Monday topping out in the middle 40s.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 244 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
mild and dry conditions with highs well into the 40s will persist
across central illinois through Wednesday before the next chance
for precipitation arrives Wednesday night. A pair of short-wave
troughs... One tracking across the southern plains and the other
ejecting out of the northern rockies... Will phase over the midwest
on Thursday. 12z dec 16 models are in relatively good agreement
with this complex process, with all solutions signaling a period
of disturbed weather across central illinois Wednesday night
through Friday morning. The atmosphere will initially be warm
enough for rain Wednesday night into Thursday, then will cool
sufficiently on the back side of the phased wave to support a
change to light snow late Thursday night into Friday morning. With
the bulk of the precip shifting into the ohio river valley and
low temperatures only dropping into the lower 30s Thursday night,
any wet snow accumulations will likely be minor. Once the precip
ends, cool dry weather will be on tap for Friday afternoon through
Sunday.

Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Monday evening)
issued at 515 pm cst Sun dec 16 2018
vfr conditions are expected through this forecast period. Other
than a few cirrus around this forecast period, the weather across
the region looks quiet through Monday evening. West to northwest
winds of 7 to 12 kts are expected tonight and northwest at 10 to
15 kts on Monday.

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.
