Short term Today through Thursday night
ridge of high pressure over the central southern plains is finally
going to relax around here and build a lot farther to the west.
Given this, changes are coming. However, it will be a slow process
in the near term.
Another hot and mostly dry day is in store. Heat index values in
most areas will MAX out between 100 and 110 degrees, with localized
higher indices. Have a heat advisory continuing for most areas
except the ozark mountains of the northwest.
Latest data is showing isolated thunderstorms popping up this
afternoon, with a more concentrated area of precipitation over
southern missouri. This is along ahead of a cold front which will be
inching its way to the south. Some of these storms will likely get
into northern arkansas by this evening before falling apart.
Patience starts paying off on Thursday as the front nears. There
will be better chances of thunderstorms across the northern half
of the state, and it will not be so hot. Precipitation will remain
isolated in the south, with borderline advisory heat. The heat in
the south will gradually decline in the extended period.
As far as rainfall, parts of the north could get an inch or two of
liquid through Thursday night. Some storms could be severe as well,
but nothing organized is expected. Strong to damaging winds will be
the main concern.
Long term Friday through Tuesday
by 12z Friday expect widespread high pressure in the area, with two
main areas of troughing... One across the pacific northwest and
another across the far northeast, with ridging between the two.
While the more exciting weather will be north of the state due to
the southern portions of the country being under a mostly quasi-|
zonal regime, expect chances for rain each day as a quasi-stationary
frontal boundary remains draped across the lower mississippi valley
region. This, combined with peak heating each afternoon and embedded
pulses drifting through the state, will help spark daily summertime
showers and thunderstorms. While widespread severe is not expected
at this time, cannot rule out strong storms with hail and gusty
winds, especially towards the Sunday time frame when a shortwave
trough moves southeastward into the natural state.
Towards the end of the period, expect broad high pressure to once
again spread eastward over the state, but this should be short lived
as another cold front is on the horizon. Until then however, high
temperatures will range from the lower to mid 80s to lower 90s, and
lows should be in the upper 60s to lower 70s.

There are five sources. 1) Documents and manuals from a variety of sources. These have not been checked for accuracy and in many cases have not even been read by anyone associated with L-36.com. I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. 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.
