Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Goodland KS 521 AM MDT Wed Apr 8 2020

SHORT TERM. (Today through Thursday night) Issued at 259 AM MDT Wed Apr 8 2020

Above normal temperatures and dry conditions will continue across the region today. High temperatures will range from the mid-60s north of the Kansas Nebraska border to the mid-70s in the south.

Elevated fire weather conditions are expected in the southwestern part of the forecast area with relative humidity values in the mid to upper teens and winds gusting as high as 30mph in the afternoon. Near critical fire weather conditions may be possible for a few hours in Cheyenne and Kit Carson counties in Colorado this afternoon. Relative humidity values will fall to the mid- teens, particularly in the western part of Cheyenne County this afternoon. Winds will increase through the afternoon as a cold front swings south into the region. Sustained winds to 20mph with gusts to 30mph will be possible.

Cooler air will sink in behind the front and temperatures are expected to be near normal Wednesday night into Thursday. Low temperatures will range from the low to mid-30s. Thursday will be cooler, with highs ranging from the mid-50s to low 60s. Low temperatures will be in the upper 20s to mid-30s.

LONG TERM. (Friday through Tuesday) Issued at 326 AM MDT Wed Apr 8 2020

Fri-Sun: Active/dynamic weather is expected across the Central Plains in this period -- as the synoptic pattern transitions from split-flow to cyclonic flow aloft. A stalled upper low over the Desert Southwest will track east across the Southern Plains this weekend -- as potent northern stream shortwave energy digs southward through British Columbia into the Northern Rockies, amplifying a full-latitude trough over the Central CONUS. Although significant uncertainty persists with regard to forecast specifics, confidence is increasing that strong northerly winds will impact the Tri-State area late Saturday night into Sunday. At this time, the *relative* best chance for accumulating snow appears to be along/north of I-70.

Mon-Tue: With a broad full-latitude trough /cyclonic flow aloft/ over the forty-eight contiguous US states -- expect unsettled weather.

AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning) Issued at 521 AM MDT Wed Apr 8 2020

VFR conditions are expected through the forecast period at KGLD and KMCK terminals. Winds will gradually increase through the day as a cold front moves through the area. Winds will become northerly late in the morning as the front moves through. Sustained winds of 15 to 20kts will be possible at both terminals with gusts to 26kts. Winds will begin to east up after dark with ceilings lowering overnight, though remaining VFR.

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 numerous 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.
