AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION National Weather Service Kansas City/Pleasant Hill MO 640 PM CDT Thu Aug 6 2020
Discussion. Issued at 141 PM CDT THU AUG 6 2020
Primary forecast focus is on scattered thunderstorm chances tonight.
Broad ridging will persist over the central Plains, with the leeward trough centered over the Ohio Valley gradually lifting east/northeast causing the ridge to stretch from the Rockies to the Atlantic into the Weekend. This near zonal synoptic pattern will open the Plains and Midwest to a persistent warm air advection regime into early next week; with subtle short waves bringing precipitation chances near daily.
Through the afternoon, a weak short wave trough continues to slide southeast from NE/IA with a focus of 315K isentropic ascent from over IA in northern Missouri promoting scattered showers and thunderstorms into the afternoon. Farther south, across the KC Metro, lingering showers have given way to drizzle and sprinkles through the early portion of the afternoon and will likely loiter through the late afternoon.
Overnight, the southwesterly low level jet will increase off the southern Plains, focusing with another weak short wave setting up over west/southwest Missouri and southeast Kansas into the Four States Region (KS/MO/AR/OK). Modest elevated Instability, 1000 to 1500 J/Kg, and deep layer shear will support thunderstorms, a few of which may cause severe hail and wind. The better chances for storms will be from southeast Kansas into southwest Missouri. A few storms may develop farther north towards the Metro, but the best chances remain to the south at this time.
Any rain or thunder chances will shift well south by midday, Friday. the bigger story into the weekend will be the return of summer temperatures. Heat index values Saturday afternoon will approach the lower 100s F. At the same time, the persistent synoptic pattern will result in chances for showers and scattered thunderstorms late Saturday into mid-next week.

Overnight and early morning thunderstorms should remain well south of the MCI/STJ terminals, but there could be a few showers nearby, so went with minimal impact VFR forecast. KIXD and KMKC may have a better shot at some thunderstorms near the terminals with brief heavy downpours possible. Winds will occasionally gust 25 to 30 mph at times.

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.
