just completed an update. Coverage of storms has increased along
and south of interstate 70 in northwest kansas in response to a
couple of prefrontal troughs. Mesoscale interaction of storms have
also helped to move storms along. This coverage is a little more
plus further west than what was in the forecast. So have raised
pops in this area.

Also surface boundaries have sagged further south over the northern
half of the area than what was called for. This plus thunderstorms
will make for gusty and erratic winds this evening. Because of all
this further updates through the rest of the night will be

upper ridge will be centered over the southern plains with a weak
shortwave trough currently emerging out of wyoming and topping the
ridge axis. At the surface, radar shows a surface cold front
evident on radar has settled near the kansas-nebraska border
region with a wind shift to the east behind it. For the rest of
this afternoon and tonight, two areas of concern for convection.

The first is over the south central to south eastern areas, where
latest hrrr continues to show a cluster developing and moving
eastward through this evening. These storms will be south of the
front in a low shear moderate instability environment, with the
main hazards gusty winds and perhaps marginally severe hail. Later
tonight, another thunderstorm complex will move out of northeast
colorado into western nebraska. These will be north of the front
in a high shear very unstable environment. Expecting a MCS to move
across western central nebraska through the night, mainly
impacting areas to the north, but cannot discount development
southward along mesoscale outflow boundaries through the night.

The main hazard with these storms will be strong damaging winds.

Low temperatures will be near normal, mainly in the 60s.

Some storms may linger into Wednesday morning as outflow
associated with the MCS moving through eastern nebraska may
continue to have mesoscale influences. Areas of fog may also
develop in the post frontal upslope flow in the morning. Expecting
a lull in activity around midday then new development in the
afternoon, mainly in southeastern areas. In fact, href members
suggest little convection through Wednesday afternoon, holding off
until the next weak shortwave comes out of colorado Wednesday
night. Best chances will be in southern central part of the area
south of interstate 70. Primary hazard will be wind, with only a
marginal risk for hail due to nocturnal timing. Heavy rain threat
may stay south, but do see some href members hitting parts of
cheyenne county, colorado, during the evening with heavy rain, so
cannot totally discount it there. High temperatures on Wednesday
will be cooler behind the front and with the morning clouds fog,
ranging from upper 70s lower 80s in southwest nebraska to the
lower 90s in west central kansas.

Long term (Thursday through Tuesday)
issued at 224 pm mdt Tue aug 20 2019
the extended forecast is a bit messy with daily chances for showers
and thunderstorms. Thursday morning, lingering showers will be
possible in the western part of the forecast area, mainly along and
west of the kansas-colorado border. A weak upper level ridge will
be in place over the western part of the dakotas. On the underside
of the ridge, an upper level shortwave trough will move through the
tri-state area during the day. Showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Thursday afternoon and evening. Storms will fire off along
a frontal boundary in northeastern colorado, moving west into the
tri-state area.

Friday into the weekend, a series of upper level shortwave troughs
will move through the central plains. Showers and thunderstorms,
while not widespread in coverage in the forecast area, will be
possible through Saturday.

Monday, a broadening upper level trough will extend from british
columbia, canada to minnesota and south into the dakotas. The tri-
state area will be under northwest flow aloft as a shortwave trough
moves through the larger scale upper trough. Meanwhile, a lee
cyclone will develop Sunday night and progress eastward on Monday.

Cannot entirely rule out a chance of precipitation early Monday
morning, but am thinking we will remain dry through much of the

for kgld, at this timeVFR conditions are expected through the
period. East winds near 14 knots will shift to the southeast at 19
knots with gusts to around 27 knots. From 06z to 11z, southeast
winds near 8 knots are expected with 6sm br expected to develop
around 09z. From 11z to 15z east winds near 8 knots and the light
fog are expected. This is the time period where possible subVFR
conditions due to ceilings. At 15z east northeast winds near 15
knots will continue until 22z. At that time the winds will become
northeast near 15 knots with gusts to around 22 knots.

For kmck,VFR conditions are expected through the first half of
the period. Otherwise, east winds near 15 knots with gusts near
23 knots are expected until 04z. From 04z to 07z the winds will be
southeast at 6 knots. From 07z to 15z east to northeast winds of 6
to 12 knots are expected as thunderstorms will be near the site
along with fog of 6sm br. From 09z to 12z,VFR conditions will
change MVFR and continue until 15z.

Ifr conditions are expected from 15z to 18z with northeast winds
of 15 knots with gusts to 23 knots. From 18z to the end of the
period east northeast winds near 10 knots are expected as MVFR
conditions will becomeVFR around 22z.

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.
