PREV DISCUSSION. (ISSUED 303 PM CDT Mon Aug 10 2020) Short Term . Tonight thru Wednesday . An upper level ridge continues to dominate the weather today, but things will change tomorrow as the ridge axis shifts more to the west and a shortwave trough pushes into the region. Another issue is a quasi-stationary front located over southern MO, which may serve as a focal point for convection across the region.
There area a few isolated showers out across the northern reaches of the state this afternoon. Rain chances will start to increase across the far north overnight as the ridge breaks down, and will increase across the rest of the state during the day tomorrow.
Temperatures tomorrow will remain hot, but a few degrees cooler than today due to the ridge breaking down, increased cloud cover, and scattered precipitation across the area. Some locations could briefly hit heat indices of 105, but for the moment will hold off on issuing any advisories for tomorrow.
Extended Term . Wednesday Night through Monday . The long term portion of the forecast will be characterized by persistent H500 ridging across the western US with its influence extending southeastward along the southern US. Upper level troughing will persist across the eastern half of the CONUS.
The state will remain largely under control of the ridge, but with NW flow in the vicinity and occasional pieces of shortwave energy traversing the area, occasional chances for showers and thunderstorms will persist. Much of this activity will be diurnally driven, without any significant areawide QPF expected. Temperatures will remain warm, with readings near to slightly above average through much of the period.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
