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.

Short term (today through Sunday)
issued at 200 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
upper level closed low churning across the mid mississippi river
valley - per current watervapor satellite imagery. Frontogenetic
bands of rain continued to rotate westward around the low, holding
mostly south of i-90. The low will continue to make slow progress
east today, weakening as it eases into the ohio river valley, and
also pulling its rain along with it. Parts of NE ia SW wi will hold
onto the chances the longest - and could linger into the early
afternoon. Additional amounts look minor.

Weak ridging a loft expected to build in over the weekend, but
models also suggest ripples in the upper level flow could work into
the region. With sfc high also settling across the northern great
lakes toward the end of the weekend, any related pcpn threat from
the shortwaves should be greater west of the mississippi river. As
it sits, Sat looks dry with some chances creeping in sun. Will let
consensus solution detail the chances for now.

Long term (Monday through Thursday)
issued at 200 am cdt Fri jun 22 2018
the GFS and ec in pretty good agreement with taking an upper level
trough hanging out over the southern rockies eastward, rotating it
over the region by 00z wed. Good low level moisture feed leading the
system in, with warm cloud depths again progged to be upwards of 4k.

Shower thunderstorms generated by the system would likely be
efficient heavy rain producers. Something to keep a close eye on
consider the wet period the area has been under for about the last
week - grounds are wet and river systems already high. Meanwhile,
depending on timing of trough and accompanying sfc front, some
instability and 0-3 km shear could aid in a few stronger (maybe
severe?) storms. Too early for any definitive threat though. Timing
suggests showers storms would move in Mon night, continuing into tue
night.

Another ripple in the upper level flow could bring more rain chances
for Thu fri. Outside rainy days holding down temps, they should be
back on the rise with zonal to broad ridging a loft.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Friday night)
issued at 1142 pm cdt Thu jun 21 2018
as expected, the showers have slipped south of both airports this
evening as the frontogenesis zone works southeast with the upper
level low. Ceilings continue to beVFR and are expected to remain
that way through the night. Ceiling heights will gradually go up
through the night with the higher level clouds expected to scatter
out after sunrise. Still some concern for fog formation overnight
with lots of low level boundary moisture and light surface winds.

The 22.03z rap continues to show winds at or above 10 knots just
above the surface through the night that should prevent much fog
from forming and do not plan to include it at this time.

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.
