SHORT TERM. (This evening through Thursday night) Issued at 202 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019
Dry and quiet weather will prevail for this period along with a gradual warming trend for temperatures. Daytime highs will warm above normal for Wednesday as downslope effects help boost temperatures. A upper level system will move east across Kansas on Thursday but will remain moisture starved with dry weather and above normal daytime highs.
LONG TERM. (Friday through Monday) Issued at 202 PM CST Mon Dec 9 2019
Still expecting warm above normal temperatures on Friday/Saturday for central and southern Kansas.
Long range models continue to highlight potential for a upper level wave bringing accumulating winter precipitation to the region on Sunday into Monday. We will continue to monitor trends as number of GEFS of ensemble members show increasing probabilities of winter precipitation impacting Kansas.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon) Issued at 1136 AM CST Mon Dec 9 2019
Strong and gusty northwest winds will gradually subside as we move through the afternoon hours. MVFR cigs across far southeast KS will gradually shift east of the area with VFR prevailing across the area.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website. I do not believe this site is subject to CCPA but I am doing what I can to follow the guidelines anyway.
The information on this web site has not been checked for accuracy. It is for entertainment purposes only and should be independently verified before using for any other reason. 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.
