Short term (today through Sunday night)
issued at 328 am cdt Fri aug 23 2019
clusters of thunderstorms with heavy rainfall have been developing
over arkansas and the ozarks of missouri the past several hours.
These storms have been moving generally east-northeast into
western kentucky. There has not been much agreement among the
convection allowing models, and only the 12z arw from Thursday
verified well. Based on radar trends and the timing of the cold
front, it appears the wettest areas today will be southwest
kentucky and southeast missouri south of kcgi. Heavy rainfall will
be the main concern due to the training of echoes from west to
east. Precip water values remain very high.
The cold front will sag south of the kentucky tennessee border by
midday, ending the heavy rain potential. However, the 850 mb front
will lag well behind the surface front. This elevated boundary may
cause showers and isolated thunderstorms to linger through the
afternoon. Widespread cloudiness will persist through the day.
With northeast winds and dense overcast, highs today will be
only around 80.
Drier air will filter southward tonight, bringing clearing skies
to southwest indiana and parts of southern illinois. However, the
lingering 850 mb boundary will keep clouds entrenched across se
missouri and parts of west kentucky through the night. Scattered
showers will be slow to end in SE missouri and SW kentucky.
Noticeably cooler air will reach southwest indiana and southern
illinois, where lows will be around 60.
On Saturday and Saturday night, rather strong high pressure over
the great lakes region will produce a dry northeast wind flow.
Even far southern counties of SE missouri and west kentucky
should see at least partial clearing. Daytime highs will be around
80 on Saturday, even where plenty of Sun is expected. Overnight
lows Saturday night will be in the cool upper 50s north and east
of kmdh. Low to mid 60s are forecast elsewhere.
Warmth and humidity will make a slow return Sunday and Sunday
night as the high pressure system moves off to our east. Along
with the more humid air will come a chance of showers, and
possibly a few thunderstorms. The precip chances will be aided by|
a weak 850 mb warm front. In addition, a northwest to southeast
oriented 500 mb shortwave will amplify as it approaches the mid
mississippi valley. Dew points will once again be near 70 degrees
by Sunday evening.
Long term (Monday through Thursday)
issued at 328 am cdt Fri aug 23 2019
the long term solutions still develop a weak open wave Monday, in
advance of on the southern edge of a negatively tilted upper trof
that will soon be sweeping into across the area. The result will
translate to increasing humidity and pops on Monday, and as the
strong upper trof drives a surface cold front into across the area
Tuesday, pops will further increase spike with that passage.
There is deterministic model support for high pressure behind fropa
resulting in a drier, somewhat cooler rest of the week. However, the
ensemble blend is slow to catch up on the high pressure dry air,
instead meandering spreading daily pops on thru the rest of the
week, in the post frontal airmass. While we'll downplay pops in the
low chance cats wed-thu, we'll downplay it (but not eliminate it) in
comparison to the mon-tue chances.
We should see seasonally cooler temps in the low to mid 80s for
highs, and generally 60s for lows, though some around 70 low 70s
will be possible before until Tuesday's fropa.
Issued at 328 am cdt Fri aug 23 2019
very humid air along and ahead of a weak cold front has resulted
in the development of lifr CIGS in some areas. Expect these areas
of very low conditions to expand through sunrise and persist into
mid morning. A gradual improvement in CIGS and vsbys is expected
by midday as northeast winds increase to 5 to 10 knots.VFR
conditions are expected this afternoon, and mostly clear skies
will arrive this evening north of the ohio river.

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.
