SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 231 AM CST Fri Jan 22 2021
Upper pattern is fairly zonal over the CONUS early this morning with the polar jet and southern stream jet merging over the OH valley region. A low was embedded within the southern stream jet over the desert southwest with upper energy stretched east across the southeast. Precipitation was mainly confined to areas from Texas across the deep south. Some mid and high level clouds were affecting the forecast area this morning as surface high pressure continues to build into the area. The center of this high was located over the eastern Dakotas. Early morning temperatures were from the mid 30s to low 40s. A secondary upper low was off the west coast of Oregon.
For today, upper energy will shift east and mainly remain south of the area. The upper low off the west coast will begin to dig southeast into California. At the surface, the high pressure center will track southeast into eastern Iowa by the end of the day. Cloud cover is expected to diminish today with plenty of sunshine expected. With cold air associated with the high pressure system moving into the area, temperatures will remain chilly today from the upper 30s to mid 40s. For tonight, the high pressure system will begin to track southeast into the western Great Lakes and Ohio valley region. Temperatures across the Ozarks will dip into the teens to mid 20s with a generally mostly clear sky.
LONG TERM. (Saturday through Thursday) Issued at 231 AM CST Fri Jan 22 2021
Heading into Saturday, southern winds will begin to rebound over the area as the high shifts further eastward and we begin to see a surface low develop over the high plains in response to the deepening upper low over southern California. Temperatures will still be on the chilly side with highs from the low to mid 40s.
By Saturday evening, strong low level warm advection along with good southwest flow aloft ahead of the deep upper low in the southwest U.S., will be occurring over the forecast area. Have increased pops Saturday night as rain expands over the area in this warm advection regime. Could see some pockets over freezing rain over the far eastern Ozarks region as temperatures approach freezing there, however no impacts with any wintry precipitation are expected.
Most of this first batch of rain should exit the area by midday Sunday. The upper low will begin to swing eastward into the 4 corners area during the day with a frontal boundary stretched northeast across the forecast area. The next batch of rain will arrive late in the day Sunday as upper energy in advance of the upper low shift northeast into the area. On Sunday night, some instability could develop over southern Missouri and some thunderstorms will be possible which will linger into Monday morning. The low is currently progged to shift northeast over the southeast portion of the CWA during the day Monday with the heaviest rain expected southeast of this track. Southeast portions of the CWA may receive a 1 to 1.75 inches of rain, with widespread half inch to inch amounts elsewhere. Cooler air will begin to move into the area behind the low as it lifts northeastward and may see rain mix with or change to some snow before the precipitation ends Monday evening. This would mainly be over the northwestern portion of the CWA. At this time we are expecting little to no impact of winter weather with this system.
Another wave will lift northeast into the plains by Wednesday and across the forecast area Wednesday night with the next chance of precipitation. We may see some rain changing to snow with this system, although precipitation amounts at this time look to be light.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Saturday morning) Issued at 450 AM CST Fri Jan 22 2021
VFR conditions are expected through the period as high pressure continues to push into the area. As this occurs, wind will veer from the northeast to the east.

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 numerous 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.
