UPDATE. Issued at 1141 AM CDT Mon Aug 10 2020
SHORT TERM. (Today through Wednesday night) Issued at 408 AM CDT Mon Aug 10 2020
Upper-level flow continues to be west-northwesterly in otherwise nearly zonal flow. This pattern will lead to a series of quick hitting disturbances with shower and thunderstorm potential. At the surface, high pressure to the east is helping steer southerly flow across the Quad State region. A few showers could linger into the morning hours. A few models continue to develop precip with this disturbance through the day but others are unimpressed, resulting in slight chance to low-end chance PoPs for today. A more organized line of convection is likely to develop late this afternoon north of the area and cross the Quad State this evening. The ARW/NMM have the line at the I-64 corridor by early evening while the HRRR and NAM time it closer to late evening. SPC has a marginal risk for most of the Quad State, primarily for the potential of a few strong wind gusts in the evening. WPC has a slight category excessive rainfall outlook today/tonight for the Quad State except southernmost SEMO counties and far western KY. While the line movement should be fairly perpendicular to the line, a few discontinuities or training could result in localized flooding issues since moisture levels remain very high. Convective activity will slowly weaken overnight.
The NAM, GFS, Canadian, and ECMWF all agree on some sort of shortwave system on Tuesday, but vary significantly in positioning with some focusing it towards SEMO and others towards SW Indiana. The HiRes models do not develop as much precip during the day Tuesday so PoPs are mainly kept in the upper chance range. A boundary dropping into the Quad State Tuesday will cut off the southerly flow and provide an area for potential development. Wednesday will bring another round of convection, with the boundary aiding as a focusing point.
Today will be the warmest day of the week, with highs near 90 up to the mid-90s for SEMO. A heat advisory covers SEMO, much of Southern Illinois, and far western Kentucky with widespread heat index values of 100-105F expected. Tuesday and Wednesday have higher PoPs and a cut off southerly flow, which should keep highs in the mid to upper 80s. Lows early this morning will be in the low to mid 70s, only dropping closer to 70 for subsequent days. Dew points will track similarly to the lows.
LONG TERM. (Thursday through Sunday) Issued at 408 AM CDT Mon Aug 10 2020
The models continue their broken record airmass for the "Dog Days" of August thru the late week and weekend. Upper half 80s for highs, around 70/ish for lows, and daily, midday dew points in the lower half 70s basically covers the entirety of the FA for the duration of the long term portion of the forecast. This abundance of heat energy with high humidity will also continue about the only relief from the heat we will get . scattered daily showers/storms that provide a chance of rain and/or potentially a little brief cloud cover that temporarily mutes the heat. The modeled synoptic pattern has the basic same evolutions it has shown all week, and while there are a few subtleties to keep an eye upon for day-to-day fine tuning, esp pops/sky, the overall dog days theme remains unchanged, with little indication of breaking save for some potential move out from underneath the stronger ridging by day 7 and perhaps beyond. This might knock the 'edge' off by a degree or two in terms of daily temps/dew points, and end up drying the pops some out of the blended Sunday (and post) forecast.
AVIATION. Issued at 1141 AM CDT Mon Aug 10 2020
Generally VFR conditions through 00 UTC, with SSW winds 6 to 12 kts. There is a slight chance of thunderstorms.
Tonight, thunderstorm chances will increase, highest across southern IL and southwest IN and parts of southeast MO through 06 UTC, with chances continuing south into west KY overnight. Exact track, timing and evolution are a bit uncertain. MVFR/IFR conditions likely with thunderstorms, along with the possibility of strong and gusty winds. Winds will be light and variable outside of storms. The chance of showers and storms should be on the decrease Tuesday morning.
PAH WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. IL . Heat Advisory until 7 PM CDT this evening for ILZ075-080>082- 084>086-088>090-092>094.
MO . Heat Advisory until 7 PM CDT this evening for MOZ076-086-087-100- 107>112-114.
IN . None. KY . Heat Advisory until 7 PM CDT this evening for KYZ001>006.

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.
