What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Synopsis
Issued at 324 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
closed upper level low was located near st louis mo early this morning.

Bands of mainly rain and showers continue to rotate westward around
the low. One main band was retrograding through the hwy 30 and i-80
corridors over il into far eastern ia attendant to embedded vort max
and zone of greater mid level moisture transport wrapping back around
the upper low. Overall expect a gradual transition to drier weather over
the next 24 hours as the upper low continues to exit the region.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 324 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
gradual diminishing trend expected in the coverage of rain showers
today as the upper low continues to slowly push off toward the ohio
valley. Areas along east of the mississippi river will likely hold
onto rain chances the longest being in closer proximity to embedded
disturbances rotating around periphery of upper low. Additional
rainfall is expected to be mostly light (0.25 inch or less) with some
localized areas of moderate amounts near 0.5 inch possible along east
of the mississippi river. These amounts and rainfall rates should not
result in any additional flash flooding, and therefore have cancelled
the flash flood watch. Otherwise, the other weather story is the
unseasonably cool conditions on tap for today. With clouds and northeast
winds, forecast highs were shaved a bit more toward cool side of guidance
in the upper 60s to lower 70s. Areas that stay cloudy all day (most
favored from quad cities and points south east) could struggle into the
mid 60s for highs. Meanwhile, any areas that manage some breaks allowing
for peaks of Sun (best chances northwest of the quad cities) could quickly
pop up into the mid 70s.

Tonight, generally partly to mostly cloudy skies with some clearing
overnight as weak high pressure builds in. This will allow for cooler lows
in the 50s.

Long term (Saturday through Thursday)
issued at 324 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
will have some low chances for precipitation (mainly west of the mississippi
river) over the second half of the weekend with possibly a few weak
disturbances moving through westerly semi-zonal flow aloft. Generally though
it looks to be drier weather through Sunday with moderating temperatures.

We are watching the potential for another round of heavy rain developing
later Monday through Tuesday attendant to another slow moving closed low.

Strong moisture advection and deepening moist conveyor feed (pwats increasing
to around 2 inches) combined with moderate strength forcing will bring the
risk of storms (possibly a few strong storms) and heavy rainfall. Something
to keep a close eye on given the saturated soils and swollen rivers in some
areas. Temps throughout should transition closer to seasonal norms with
highs mainly in the 80s and lows in the 60s.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night)
issued at 1239 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
ifr MVFR clouds forecast to last through most of this TAF cycle.

Worst ceilings likely tonight into early Friday morning at
kmli kbrl. Moisture rotating around an upper level low will bring
periods of showers, but areal coverage should remain isolated to
scattered. The risk for thunder is very low. Uttech

Hydrology
Issued at 1026 pm cdt Thu jun 21 2018
flood warning continues on the mississippi river from dubuque to
gregory landing for minor to moderate flooding. At dubuque the
river has been increased to moderate category.

On the rock river minor to moderate flooding is expected from como
to moline.

On the wapsipinicon river at de witt moderate flooding will
continue, and on the iowa river at marengo minor flooding is
forecast.

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.
