SHORT TERM. (This evening through Friday night) Issued at 316 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

Sunny skies and seasonable temperatures will reign for the remainder of the day as a weak high pressure ridge remains in control of the region. This high pressure ridge will continue to build during the day and overnight tonight. Winds will pick up out of the south during the overnight which will also allow the moisture transport to pick up as well. Wednesday looks to be a nice warm day and breezy as the next frontal system encroaches on the region. As the front approaches, the atmosphere will begins to destabilize bringing the possibility of showers and thunderstorms. Lapse rates will start to become steep in the late afternoon and into the evening however there does not seem to be a good trigger to get things going for Wednesday afternoon and evening. During the overnight Wednesday and into the early morning Thursday, the front appears to come close enough to the region to provide the needed forcing to get showers and thunderstorms going. BUFkit soundings show decent instability with a weak veering wind profile. However, lapse rates remain rather weak and CAPE values hover around 1000-1500. This set up lends more to a general shower and thunderstorm event. There is the possibility of some brief heavy rain as the PW values do remain rather high for this time of year. While this set up is not conducive for severe weather, an isolated severe thunderstorm can't be ruled out Thursday afternoon and Thursday night. The front will push through the region Thursday night and into Friday morning. By Friday morning, winds will shift to the north and CAA will return. The rain and thunderstorm threat will diminish but not entirely end until late Friday. This will make Friday a rather cold and damp day. Temperatures will be well below normal for this time of year Friday and Friday night. There will be chance for some frost Friday night into Saturday morning.

LONG TERM. (Saturday through Tuesday) Issued at 316 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

The extended range will start out rather quiet and cool with Saturday's temperatures remaining a little below normal. Additionally, the rain chances will come to an end by the afternoon Saturday. Temperatures will continue to recover for Sunday as well. The next rain chance looks to come into the region Sunday night and into Monday. Moisture transport ahead of the system looks decent making for a good chance for some showers and thunderstorms Monday and into Tuesday. Severe weather chances look low but will need to see additionally model runs before gaining enough confidence to indicate severe thunderstorm activity. Temperatures will recover and be rather warm. Confidence is good for above normal temperatures for the end of the extended period.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night) Issued at 1126 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

VFR will prevail through the upcoming 24-hr period. Gusty southerly winds will return during the late morning and afternoon hours on Wednesday, especially across central KS where peak gusts may exceed 35 mph at times.

FIRE WEATHER. Issued at 316 PM CDT Tue Mar 31 2020

Partly cloudy skies, low humidities and a brisk southerly winds will bring very high fire weather conditions for areas of the high plains to the Smokey Hills. These very high fire conditions will persist through a good portion of the afternoon Wednesday but will abate by the time the wind dies down Wednesday evening. Otherwise, fire conditions are not expected to be an issue today or Thursday.

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.
