Short term (today through Thursday night)
issued at 415 am mdt Wed aug 21 2019
as of 4:00 am mdt, kgld was showing widespread southerly outflow
from an MCS trekking east across central nebraska. Behind the
outflow, bands of convection were developing. Expecting most of
these storms to merge and become more stratiform showers, with
some embedded thunderstorms developing throughout the rest of the
We will see some lighter showers early on this morning, but
convection is once again expected in the afternoon. Scattered
thunderstorms area expected to develop along the surface front as
it pushes southward. Any convection that does develop will be
short lived. Large hail will be possible with the strongest
Highs will be a bit of a gamble today, as they rely heavily on
where the front settles. As of now, went lower than guidance, but
still have a north to south gradient of temps in mid 70s to upper
80s across the area.
Thursday, we will have chances once again for showers and storms.
Severe is not expected at this time. Highs will be in the mid 70s
to mid 80s, with Thursday night lows in the mid 50s to lower 60s.
Long term (Friday through Wednesday)
issued at 340 am mdt Wed aug 21 2019
synopsis... Showers and thunderstorms will be possible in the
afternoon through overnight hours for Friday and Sunday through
Wednesday in the long term forecast period. Severe weather cannot be
totally ruled out at this time, but it is generally not expected.
High temperatures will gradually increase later this week from the
low to mid 80s Friday to the low to mid 90s Sunday. However, a
cool down is expected toward the end of the forecast period with
highs as low as the mid 70s possible next Wednesday.|
Discussion... Generally a weak upper-level flow pattern is expected
over the central high plains Friday through Saturday night. This
will likely lead to decreased precipitation chances for those two
days, although some isolated showers and thunderstorms will be
possible Friday afternoon lasting into the overnight hours as storms
progress from west to east.
By Sunday, stronger northwesterly flow aloft is expected to set in
over the central high plains as an upper-level trough and jet streak
progress eastward over the northern rocky mountains. This increase in
vertical wind shear will both add upper-level support for ascent
and make stronger showers and thunderstorms more likely Sunday
afternoon and evening and into early next week as well. Overnight
convection will also be possible at times Sunday through
Wednesday. Much cooler temperatures are expected Wednesday as the
axis of the upper-level trough is expected to reach the tri-state
area bringing with it cooler air from the north. If model guidance
holds, Wednesday of next week might prove to be our first taste
of fall as highs are expected to be in the mid 70s while lows will
be in the low to mid 50s.
Aviation (for the 12z tafs through 12z Thursday morning)
issued at 549 am mdt Wed aug 21 2019
today's forecast will be especially difficult as confidence is low
as to the extent of showers and storms expected to impact the
goodland and mccook terminals. Went favorably for long periods of
vfr with vcts as terminals will only become sub-vfr when storms
pass over the area reducing visibilities from lower cloud decks
and rainfall. Amendments will be made as necessary.

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.
