area forecast discussion... Updated
national weather service little rock ar
624 pm cdt Sat sep 21 2019
Updated to include the 00z aviation discussion below...
Breezy srly winds will weaken this evening... But should return
again for many sites for Sun afternoon. Otherwise... ExpectVFR
conditions to dominate through this TAF period.
Prev discussion (issued 309 pm cdt Sat sep 21 2019)
short term... Today through Monday
isolated showers across northern ar are dissipating this
afternoon, although will keep low-end pop for any additional
diurnally-driven convection through evening. Elevated winds will
continue through the afternoon hours and subside thereafter,
except across northern ar where a tighter pressure gradient will
keep winds around 10 kts overnight.
Attention then turns to an incoming upper trough that will cross
the rockies Sunday. This will help squash the persistent upper
ridge across the southeast and will usher in a modest cold front
Monday. Sufficient moisture and instability will support scattered
to numerous showers and storms, especially across northwestern
counties, with slightly lesser chances elsewhere. Ridging across
the gulf will encourage the front to slow and then stall across
central ar through the end of the period. Parameters are not|
widely supportive of severe weather, although a few stronger
storms will be possible.
Temps this period will remain several degrees above average
through the weekend. By Monday, temps will drop a few degrees
across the northern half of the state behind the front. Across the
south, temps will remain several degrees above average.
Long term... Monday night through Saturday
at the beginning of the period, upper ridging centered over the gulf
of mexico, which will keep a frontal boundary stalled over arkansas.
Several disturbances will move around the periphery of the ridge,
and will interact with the front through mid-week, which will keep
scattered showers and thunderstorms in the forecast.
Late in the week, the upper ridge will, unfortunately, build back to
the north, which will push the front, or what's left of it, back
toward the plains and mid mississippi valley. So, kiss the rain
chances goodbye... Again... For now.
Needless to say, temperatures will remain above seasonal averages...
but you probably knew that already.

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.
