SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday) Issued at 256 PM CDT Tue May 26 2020
Scattered showers were beginning to become a little more widespread early this afternoon, with a few thunderstorms as well. MLCAPES of 500-1000 J/kg was found across the eastern Ozarks where the thunderstorms were beginning to form. Short term models hone in on the eastern Ozarks for the most concentrated convection this afternoon and evening, with less as you go west.
The culprit for all this continues to be an upper level low over Oklahoma that is cut off from the main flow. This low will remain nearly stationary over eastern Oklahoma tonight and Wednesday. This will keep the threat of showers and isolated storms going through the entire period, with a slight uptick in activity during the peak heating on Wednesday afternoon. Not expecting anything severe and no widespread areas of heavy rain as things should be scattered in nature. That being said it will not take much rain to produce flooding given high water levels and saturated soils. With the clouds and precipitation not a lot of diurnal range in temperatures expected, with lows tonight in the low to mid 60s and highs Wednesday in the low to mid 70s. Overall, rainfall amounts from tonight through the day Wednesday will range from less than a tenth of an inch in southeast Kansas to between 0.75 and 1 inch over the eastern Ozarks.
LONG TERM. (Wednesday Night through Tuesday) Issued at 256 PM CDT Tue May 26 2020
Wednesday night through Thursday the closed upper low slowly meanders from eastern Oklahoma into northern Arkansas. This will continue the unsettled weather pattern for southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks with a continuation of scattered showers and thunderstorms. There is really no low level features that will focus convection, but will likely see a somewhat uptick during the afternoon and early evening hours. No expecting any severe weather as shear and instability profiles are weak given the proximity of the upper low and lots of clouds. Biggest concern will continue to be the flooding threat given high river levels and saturated antecedent soil conditions, as most of not all rainfall will go into runoff. Temperatures will remain near or slightly below normals with the clouds and rainfall.
Drier weather finally arrives later Friday and will continue into the middle part of next week. The upper low fills and lift northeast of the area Friday with northwest flow expected over the weekend as the area will be between the trough across the east coast and a westward expanding upper ridge over the central Conus. 500mb heights steadily rise into next week as the ridge builds into the area. As a result, an extended period of dry weather is expected, with a return to above normal and summer-like temperatures by Tuesday.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) Issued at 1132 PM CDT Tue May 26 2020
Scattered convection continues to fester beneath a closed upper- level low this evening, mainly across the eastern Ozarks. While additional showers are expected to lift northward from Arkansas overnight, little or no thunder is anticipated at the JLN/SGF/BBG terminals.
While VFR ceilings dominate many of the regional terminals this evening, flight conditions will steadily deteriorate overnight, and especially before dawn. At that time, periods of drizzle and patchy fog will yield flight categories in the IFR/MVFR range.
Low-level winds, meanwhile, will become light and variable overnight as the upper-level cut-off low drifts closer to the Four States region.

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.
