Area Forecast Discussion . Updated Aviation National Weather Service Saint Louis MO 534 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2019

SHORT TERM. (Through Friday) Issued at 403 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2019

The weather continues to look fairly quiet with a warming trend through Friday. A short wave trough currently moving across the Rockies is forcing low level cyclogenesis over Colorado, Wyoming, and Montana. This elongated surface trough is turning the wind to the south-southwest over the Planes and western Missouri which is driving the development of a warm front over the mid Mississippi Valley. The front will drift northward tonight, and our forecast area should stay south of the front through Friday. Guidance is showing highs in the mid 40s to low 50s both Thursday and Friday, and this looks reasonable given upstream temperatures across the eastern/southeastern Plains. The warm advection will also bring our nighttime temperatures up from the teens and 20s into the upper 20s to mid 30s tonight and Thursday night.

LONG TERM. (Friday Night through Next Wednesday) Issued at 403 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2019

Attention turns to the weekend when another cold air intrusion will combine with a strong storm system Sunday into Monday to produce a chance for wintry weather. Models are in pretty good agreement in pushing a long wave trough into the Central U.S. on Saturday, and this will open the gates to a cold airmass which will spill into the mid Mississippi Valley Saturday afternoon/evening. There may be a bit of precipitation during the morning ahead of the cold front as the base of the trough is swinging through. Low level temperatures may be cold enough ahead of the front to briefly support some light frozen or freezing precipitation, however QPF is very low, so I don't expect there to be any impacts to roads if there is a brief wintry mix.

The cold front is still expected to stall somewhere over the lower Mississippi Valley Saturday night as the flow aloft becomes zonal in the wake of the long wave trough. Low level flow then turns back to the south ahead of the next wave on Sunday morning and chances for precipitation increase through the day and into Sunday night. Temperatures are in the range where wintry precipitation is possible across the entire area. However, looking at the GEFS and ECMWF ensembles there continues to be a lot of uncertainty with this system. For instance, GEFS snow accumulation plumes for St. Louis range from 0 to almost 16 inches for Sunday through Monday! The majority of the members show an inch or less, but there is a clustering in the 2-4 inch range. ECMWF ensemble probabilities are in the 60-70% range across much of the area for accumulations of at least 1 inch with the majority falling between 06Z and 18Z Monday. However, probabilities fall quickly to 50% or lower at 3+ inches. With all of this in mind, the snow forecast for Sunday-Monday is still very low confidence at this time. The remainder of the forecast period looks relatively quiet and seasonably cool behind the Sunday/Monday storm system.

AVIATION. (For the 00z TAFs through 00z Thursday Evening) Issued at 528 PM CST Wed Dec 11 2019

The main issue tonight will be LLWS conditions. A warm front currently developing across southern MO and southern IL will slowly lift northward tonight resulting in surface winds veering to more southeasterly. Aloft between 1500-2000 feet AGL, a southwesterly LLJ will ramp up and this will produce LLWS conditions beginning between 07-11z. The LLWS conditions should end by 16z as mixing commences and gusty southerly winds ensue.

VFR flight conditions are expected with waves of high clouds beginning tonight and continuing on 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.

In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
