AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 526 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2019
Discussion. Issued at 247 PM CST WED DEC 11 2019
Tranquil weather will continue tonight through Friday, with a gradual increase in high and mid-level cloudiness. Southerly winds will persist through the period, with occasional gusty wind speeds, specifically late tonight into midday Thursday. Highs each afternoon will be in the upper 40s near the Iowa border to the middle 50s in east central Kansas into west central Missouri. The warm spell comes to an end by late Friday into Saturday as a cold front sweeps through, setting up a cold airmass for the weekend into early next week. A slight chance of light precipitation may occur along and just behind the cold front passage, with initial activity in the form of rain, eventually yielding a few flurries or light snow showers as the colder air arrives on Saturday morning. No impacts are expected tonight through Saturday morning.
Focus turns to a more active weather pattern late in the weekend into early next week. There remains a considerable amount of uncertainty with respect to the track of the late weekend system, its respective strength, and amount of dry sub-cloud layer air reinforced with northeasterly winds. While the vertical temperature profile currently looks supportive of snowfall, the swath and intensity of precipitation is quite varied through respective model solutions. Those with travel interests within the region should continue to monitor the latest forecasts as some impacts could result from the wintry weather.

Main concern with this forecast is again the potential for LLWS tonight. A strong southwesterly low level jet will develop and move over the area tonight. Winds in the 1000 to 2000 ft AGL range will be in the 50 to 60 kt range. Initially, surface winds will be relatively light, around 10 to 15 kts from the south. But the stronger winds aloft will eventually begin to mix to the surface and late tonight we'll begin to gusty south-southwesterly surface winds. LLWS threat will persist into the morning hours before that core of strong winds aloft weakens and moves east of the area. We'll continue to strong and gusty southwesterly winds though through the early afternoon.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
