Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Goodland KS 510 PM MDT Fri Apr 3 2020

SHORT TERM. (This evening through Sunday night) Issued at 154 PM MDT Fri Apr 3 2020

The cooler area of high pressure in place at the surface over the central High Plains region today slides off to the east over the weekend with a trough of lower pressure deepening in the lee of the Rockies by Sunday. This will allow temperatures to warm from below normal this afternoon to above normal by Sunday. Broad west to southwest upper flow will provide some weak short wave ridging over the forecast area through the weekend.

With west to southwest downslope flow and a decent pressure gradient across the forecast area, Sunday will provide a period of elevated fire weather conditions on Sunday afternoon with relative humidity values dropping to around 15 percent combined with afternoon peak wind speeds near 25 mph.

LONG TERM. (Monday through Friday) Issued at 221 PM MDT Fri Apr 3 2020

Upper ridging will result in warm and dry conditions to start the period. Highs will be in the upper 70s to lower 80s Monday and Tuesday, with a slight cool down to the lower 70s on Wednesday behind a weak cold front associated with a northern stream shortwave moving across the northern plains. GFS does show a chance of light rain showers behind the front through Wednesday night. The surface pattern suggests an optimal low level upslope wind direction which typically results in low clouds, fog and/or drizzle. Temperatures stay above freezing the duration, so if it develops not expecting any freezing precipitation at this time. For Thursday and Friday, a large closed upper low will migrate from the desert southwest to the central plains. GFS and ECMWF are even further apart than previous runs on timing and track of this system, so confidence is low. However, there will be increasing chances for showers/isolated thunderstorms for Thursday and Friday with temperatures cooling off to closer to normal.

AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 505 PM MDT Fri Apr 3 2020

For KGLD and KMCK, vfr conditions through the period. Clouds will move from southwest to northeast over the terminals this evening through much of the day Saturday before exiting the area. No precipitation is expected. Southerly winds will increase during the day Saturday given modest 3 hour pressure falls around 5mb and a pressure gradient of 8mb across the forecast area. Will likely see gusts over 30kts, most likely at KGLD.

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.
