SHORT TERM. (Today and tonight) Issued at 332 AM CDT Sun Sep 20 2020

Another mild and breezy day with near to slightly above normal daytime temperatures is expected. The upper level ridge that has been parked over the Rockies and High Plains is flattening out as an upper level shortwave trough moves out of the northern Rockies into the Dakotas this afternoon. The increased westerly flow aloft should transport some of the persistent smoke layer over the region eastward. Vertically integrated smoke fields from the HRRR model continue the same trend over the past several runs in shunting the denser smoke layer into central and eastern Kansas today. In addition, the near surface haze should also get directed eastward as well.

Temperatures should rise well up into the 80s across much of southwest Kansas. Portions of south central Kansas will likely remain in the lower 80s where a cooler airmass in the retreating surface high pressure may still have some impact.

Similar to this morning, Monday morning lows will generally be in the mid/upper 50s as southerly winds continue tonight.

LONG TERM. (Monday through Saturday) Issued at 332 AM CDT Sun Sep 20 2020

It appears that the extended period will be dry. The stronger upper level westerly flow will be confined to the northern tier of states with weaker westerly flow over from the Intermountain West across the Plains. The remains of TS Beta are progged to move inland on Monday night and Tuesday and then and move into the lower to mid Mississippi Valley by Thursday. Moisture from this system could approach south central Kansas on Tuesday but there is not strong consensus among the models that this will happen.

Toward the end of the extended period, another strong upper level shortwave trough moves onshore in the Pacific Northwest and approaches the northern and central Plains by Saturday. Warm advection ahead of this system should push high temperatures well into the 80s across the region with 90+ degree readings over far southwest Kansas on Friday. Depending on the timing of this next system, Saturday could see a return to cooler temperatures in the 70s and lower 80s behind a cold front.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday night) Issued at 1200 AM CDT Sun Sep 20 2020

Areas of haze will linger across southwest Kansas overnight, resulting in MVFR vsbys at the beginning of the period. Vsbys may improve to VFR at all the terminals during the day on Sunday. LLWS is expected along the Garden City to Hays corridor overnight as a low level jet persists tonight. Winds will increase again during the day with gusts to around 30 knots expected most areas.

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.
