SHORT TERM. (Today and Monday tonight) Issued at 335 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
An upper level trough is currently digging south across the west coast early this morning. Ahead of this feature shortwave energy is currently moving across the Plains. Starting to see echos form across eastern Kansas early this morning. There is some dry air in place so much of these returns will be used to over come the dry area, but some light snow will be possible early this morning.
Southwest flow aloft is also developing across the region ahead of the trough. Warm air advection will start spreading into the area this morning, and strong lift will develop in this warm air advection. A band of snow will develop across the area, maybe developing as far south of Highway 60. The warm air advection will spread north through the day, and the band of snow will also move north through the day. The northern movement of the band will slow across the northern portions of the area later this morning and afternoon, as the warm surge to the north slows as it moves into the area. Most of the snow today will occur along and north of the Highway 54 corridor. Given the colder temperatures this morning, should start to see accumulations pretty quick after the snow begins, and there could be some decent rates in the middle of the band. There should be a sharp cut off in snow amounts to the south. Further south a warm nose and warmer surface temperatures will spread north and allow more rain/drizzle to occur. Will have to watch exactly how far north the surface freezing line makes it as some pockets of freezing drizzle will be possible at times.
Later this afternoon into this evening the snow band will lift out of the area and a dry slot will overspread the area. The freezing line will also start to move back to the south. Significant moisture will remain in place in the low levels along with plenty of lift. This will set the stage for a period of drizzle and freezing drizzle. Will have to watch the southern movement of the freezing line but generally around or slightly south of Highway 60 and north will see the best potential for freezing drizzle this evening into the overnight hours.
As the upper level troughs moves east tonight into Monday another band of snow will develop as cloud ice returns ahead of the trough. The band of snow will then track across the area through the day Monday, likely not moving completely out of central Missouri until later Monday evening. On the southern edge of the band cloud ice may remain lacking which could still result in more freezing drizzle along the Highway 60 corridor.
Expect 3 to 6 inches of snow with locally higher amounts to 7 inches possible along and north of the Highway 54 corridor with a glaze to a tenth of an inch of ice from freezing drizzle possible. Further south to around Highway 60 a dusting to around an inch of snow with a glaze to a tenth of an inch of freezing drizzle is expected. Far southern Missouri will see only minor wintry weather. Give the increase in snow amounts will upgrade areas along and north of Fort Scott to Vichy to a Winter Storm Warning from this morning through Monday evening. South will keep the Winter Weather Advisory going, did add a couple counties further to the south to the advisory.
Highs will only warm into the 30s today and Monday afternoon. Lows tonight will drop into the 20s. Lows Monday night will drop into the teens to the lower 20s. A snow pack across the north could result in lows dropping into the middle to even lower teens Monday night.
LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Saturday) Issued at 335 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Colder conditions will remain over the area on Tuesday and Tuesday night. Then a warming trend will occur into the end of the week as upper level ridging builds over the region. Another system will then track through the region late in the week into next week. Moisture may be lacking which will help limit precipitation chances.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning) Issued at 421 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
A wintry start system is starting to approach the region and affect the area during this TAF period. Snow is beginning to develop across eastern Kansas and northeastern Oklahoma. Ceilings will lower and and the snow will expand in cover. The snow will likely affect the JLN and SGF TAF sites early this morning, and may just clip the BBG site. The band of snow will then lift north and generally affect locations closer to Highway 54 on to the north.
Temperatures will warm some across southern Missouri and rain or drizzle will then occur this afternoon. Further northern closer to Highway 54 snow will occur through much of the afternoon with freezing drizzle possible too.
The first round of heavier precipitation will move out of the area. However, low level moisture and lift will remain across the region this evening and overnight allowing drizzle and freezing drizzle to remain possible.
Ceilings will lower into the IFR range this morning with LIFR ceilings expected later today through the overnight hours. Visibilities will also lower into the IFR to LIFR range with the snow.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them.

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.
