. Updated Short Term and Long Term Discussions .

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Saturday) Issued at 140 PM CDT Fri Apr 3 2020

Gusty winds will decrease early this evening as a ridge of high pressure at the surface builds into western Kansas. Light winds can then be expected during the overnight hours with surface dew points overnight ranging from 15 to 20 degrees. These conditions would set the stage for temperatures overnight to fall back into the teens for many locations . however given an increase in clouds late tonight the low temperatures early Saturday morning is expected to be in the 20s.

Morning clouds will give way to a most sunny afternoon. The cold dome of high pressure will slide east of the area and warmer temperatures will start to return. Based on the warming trend forecast at the 850mb level from 00z Saturday to 00z Sunday the highs Saturday will climb back into the mid 50s to around 60 degrees.

LONG TERM. (Saturday night through Friday) Issued at 140 PM CDT Fri Apr 3 2020

On Sunday a westerly downslope flow across the Rockies will gradually give way to a southwesterly flow early next week as an upper low drops south along the coast of California. This pattern continues to support unseasonably warm temperatures returning to western Kansas late this weekend through the first half of the upcoming work week. Models continue to agree with 80 degree highs being possible Monday and Tuesday. Along with the warm air there will also be an increase in fire risk levels given the breezy and dry conditions. Elevated to near critical fire weather risk levels will be possible for much of southwest Kansas during the first half of next week.

Mid week a weak cold front will try to drop south into western Kansas as a northern branch upper level trough crosses the northern Plains. This will put on the breaks to the warming trend but temperatures mid week still will be in the 70s.

Confidence late week on temperatures and precipitation chances are not high at this time given that the GFS and ECMWF differ on track and timing of the upper low crossing the southwest United States. Both solutions do support improving chances for thunderstorms late week but location of the surface cold front is unclear. As a result will not stray far from guidance on temperatures late week although the ECMWF does support highs 10 to 20 degrees warmer than the current forecast given the further north solution of the cold front. This further north solution would also support a better opportunity for strong to severe thunderstorms across southwest Kansas Thursday and/or Friday.

AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Saturday afternoon) Issued at 1211 PM CDT Fri Apr 3 2020

Gusty north winds at 15 to 20 knots will decrease late this afternoon and early tonight as ridge of high pressure moves into western Kansas. The winds will decrease to less than 10 knots between 00z and 03z Saturday and then slowly veer to the east southeast late tonight. A weak upper level disturbance crossing southwest Kansas late tonight will bring a period of VFR ceilings in the 6000 to 10000ft AGL level early Saturday morning.

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.
