calm conditions today as surface high pressure takes hold of the
region, bringing cooler and dryer air. Highs today have struggled
to reach the upper 70s, which has been quite the respite from the
warm and muggy conditions of the last several weeks. Winds have
turned more to the southeast, which indicates that the surface
ridge is starting to move east and return flow will commence. This
will get some warmer and moister air back into the area. This will
also create a focus for some showers and thunderstorms later
tonight along the W SW periphery of the surface ridge. With mid
level troughing also in place there will be plenty of support of
some isolated to scattered showers in eastern kansas later this
evening and tonight. There will also be a decaying complex of
storms forming in central kansas, which will be diving S SE toward
southeast kansas and southwest missouri. Far southern and
With off and on showers possible through the rest of the weekend,
given the presence of the low pressure aloft and moistening lower
levels, the next appreciable chance for thunderstorms will come
Monday afternoon through the overnight hours into Tuesday morning.
An encroaching mid level trough will drive eastward through the
northern and central plains, but more importantly a stiff cold
front will also push through the area. Expect a line of
thunderstorms to form somewhere in NE kansas and NW missouri
Monday evening. CAPE values approaching 2000-3000 j kg will offer
ample instability for strong storms to form. With mid level speed
max moving through the area at the time of storm formation,
expect enough shear to combine with the instability to bring a|
chance for organized deep convection, likely bringing at least
some isolated severe weather, but more likely scattered storms
capable of producing wind damage and or large hail. The frontal
boundary and storm motion look to be rather progressive, which
should moderate the flash flooding potential, but given the deep
convection and heavy rain there will at least be a possibility of
some isolated flash flooding Monday night into Tuesday morning.
With surface ridging moving in behind the cold front for next week
expect below normal temperatures with a generally dry pattern.
Some low end slight chance pops will be present, but no
appreciable opportunity for accumulating rain looks to be in line
for next week, at least until late week, when another frontal
boundary will sag in and bring some rain chances for Friday.

lowVFR CIGS should continue to gradually sink into MVFR cat
around 04z (ixd is already MVFR) becmg ifr around 12z. Light
fog haze reducing vsbys to 4-5sm looks possible as well tomorrow
morning. Models cont to also favor lgt dz aft 15z however do have
some concerns as models also show subsidence durg that time but,
will leave in the TAF this cycle and revisit for the 06z issuance.
Winds will be out of the ese btn 7-12kts thru the TAF pd.

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.
