Synopsis
Issued at 320 pm cdt Sun may 28 2017
at h5 upper closed low over northern minnesota has moved little over
past 24 hours. Sharp ridge over the western CONUS placing northern
plains in fast northwest flow. Ridging over the northeast conus.

Mainly zonal pattern from desert southwest across southern plains
into the southeast conus.

Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 320 pm cdt Sun may 28 2017
weak impulses moving through northwest flow around the backside of
the upper low over northern minnesota. The timing and extent of
these waves will be main forecast challenge over the next couple of
days. Ceilings AOA 9k ft with limited low level moisture. Heating of
the day and cooler temperatures aloft will destabilize atmosphere
enough for a few storms this afternoon and a backdoor cold front
moves through the flow some storms to continue through the over
night hours. Will continue to carry isolated mainly northwest this
evening and then spreading south through the early morning hours and
transitioning to rainshowers after midnight. Lows tonight in the
40s. Mostly sunny on memorial day with fast northwest flow
continuing and temperatures in the 60s north and 70s south.

Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 320 pm cdt Sun may 28 2017
upper low shifts slowly east through Tuesday as another backdoor
front moves south across the northern plains. This one comes
through dry. Ridge to the west begins to build into the northern
plains with highs around 70 north and the mid 70s south. Gulf
begins to open up Tuesday night with moisture advection across the
southern into the central plains. Dew points over western
nebraska return into the mid 50s Wednesday with a stationary
boundary to the southwest returning northeast through the day as a
warm front with thunderstorms in the forecast though the
afternoon and evening. Another system will move out of northwest
flow across the dakotas and nebraska Friday afternoon into
Saturday. Highs around 80 Thursday through Sunday with chances for
precipitation.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 1105 pm cdt Sun may 28 2017
local radar shows a few widely isolated showers present, otherwise
conditions are quiet. Latest surface plot shows high-endVFR
ceilings (greater than 7 kft) with satellite imagery showing
decreasing cloud cover over the last hour. Skies will continue to
clear gradually with mostly clear skies anticipated across much of
western and north central neb by the early morning. Mostly sunny
skies will prevail tomorrow. Generally light winds will prevail
overnight with breezy northwest winds developing again Monday.

Strongest winds over north central neb (gusts up to 25 mph) in the
afternoon with lighter winds towards southwest neb (to 15 mph).

Winds then lessen tomorrow evening.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
