an update was sent for the expiration of todays heat advisory, and
adjustment of tonights hourly grids.
Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 200 pm mdt Thu jul 18 2019
not much change in the short term period, with excessive heat
still the main story due to an upper ridge parked over the central
plains. Noticed today that temperatures did not get quite as hot
as expected, probably due to a lack of southwesterly winds which
adds some downslope warming. Tomorrow winds are forecast to be
southeasterly during the afternoon, so once again may see only
upper 90s lower 100s. Nonetheless, it will be hot, and went ahead
with another heat advisory for the eastern six counties Friday.
At the surface, will see the lee trough set up near the
colorado kansas border area, stretching into southwest nebraska.
A couple of the cams show isolated storms popping up in the
afternoon, so decided to include some slight chance pops in the
late afternoon early evening near expected location of the
trough. Gusty winds will be the main hazard near any thunderstorm
that develops. Low temperatures tonight and Friday night will be
in the 60s and 70s.
Long term (Saturday through Thursday)

for the extended period...
expecting zonal flow over the central portion of the country going
into the upcoming weekend... Will transition to amplified nnw flow as
models bring in upper level ridging over the rockies at 500 700 mb.
Coinciding with the building of the upper ridge to our west... A cold
front will drop south across the area during the day on Saturday.
Surface high pressure eventually sets up to our east for the second
half of the weekend into next week... With a meandering surface
trough over the east side of the rockies.
It will be the aforementioned front that will finally bring relief
from the hot temperatures seen over the area over the past week.
There is some model timing differences along with the push of the|
cooler airmass in from the nw. As with previous shift... The NAM is a
bit faster to bring in the cooler air... But carries the overall
trend. Expecting some shower storm development along the boundary as
it pushes southward thru the afternoon hours. While SPC does not
carry any enhanced risk for severe for the CWA at this time... Some
of these storms could bring about locally heavy downpours with pw
values sitting in a 1.00-1.50" range. The movement of the front will
allow for temps to reach into the upper 80s to near 100f east before
cool air arrives.
Following the passage of the front by Saturday evening to our
south... There will be low chances for showers thunder for the
remainder of the forecast period that will coincide with areas
along east of the meandering surface trough over the rockies. Any
storms that do develop will lack an eastward push due to the nnw
flow aloft. This will put chances for precipitation mainly in ne
The gradient between the trough to our west and the surface ridge to
the east will allow for some potential breezy windy conditions. The
waa on this flow will allow for high temps to ramp back up into the
80s next week after 70s for Sunday. Overnight lows will range from
the upper 50s west to the mid 60s east.
Aviation (for the 00z tafs through 00z Friday evening)

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.
