SHORT TERM. (Today through Thursday night) Issued at 345 AM CST Tue Dec 10 2019
Mid level short wave energy will shift east from the southern Plains early today. However, the bulk of the associated precipitation is expected to remain south of the forecast area this morning. Will keep a mention of a little light rain or wet snow with surface temps falling to near freezing, but not expecting any impacts to travel. All light precip should be south of the region by late morning, but skies will likely remain mostly cloudy throughout the day. This along with northerly winds will keep daytime temperatures in the 30s.
Skies should clear throughout the area tonight, and with surface high pressure settling southeast over the region, temperatures should plummet into the lower half of the 20s in most places. Readings are expected to make a 20 plus degree jump from overnight lows on Wednesday, with sunshine helping to push afternoon readings back into the 40s.
As the surface high shifts east on Thursday, winds will become more southerly. Warm advection cloudiness may limit the warming trend somewhat, but readings should still manage to make it up to near seasonal norms.
LONG TERM. (Friday through Monday) Issued at 345 AM CST Tue Dec 10 2019
Models show a couple of mid/upper level waves moving across our region Friday into Saturday evening. These will produce precipitation chances across mainly the eastern half of our counties, with the best chances late Friday night and through the day Saturday. Dry conditions return for late Saturday night into Sunday as a weak surface high pressure system moves north of the PAH forecast area. Temperatures should remain warm enough to prevent any wintry mix, though a few snowflakes could mix in in our northern counties late Friday night.
By Sunday night, precipitation chances return as another system moves from the central Rockies into the central Plains. There are some timing differences between models, but by Sunday night models all show widespread precipitation across the middle Mississippi and lower Ohio valleys. With colder air in place, the rain will become a rain/snow mix or become all snow by late Sunday night, then gradually switch back to rain by midday Monday. QPF amounts should remain fairly light while wintry precipitation is expected, but this will be a time period to keep an eye on.
Highs Friday and Saturday will be near seasonal, while lows Friday night will remain well above normal. Colder air will begin filtering in for the second half of the weekend and for early next week, with near normal lows and below normal highs.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
