Short term (this evening through Tuesday)
issued at 238 pm cdt Mon oct 14 2019
with breezy south winds and mostly sunny skies, temperatures have
ended up quite a bit warmer than expected today. That said, i
doubt there will be any complaints with temperatures in 70s on a
mid- october day.
The warm and pleasant weather will not last long, though. The
next trough and associated cold front is pushing out of the
northern rockies and into the northern great plains. This front is
forecast to push through central nebraska and northern kansas
after midnight tonight. No precipitation is expected with this
frontal passage. In fact, due to the dry airmass, we may not even
see much in the way of cloud cover.
Behind this front, we will see strong northwest winds on Tuesday
with gusts of 30-40 mph. Temperatures will also be 15 to 20
degrees cooler than today, with highs expected to be in the 50s
and low 60s.
Winds will diminish quickly Tuesday evening as high pressure
moves in from the north. This will lead to a good radiational
cooling night, and overnight lows are expected to range from the
mid 20s around 30 degrees.
Long term (Tuesday night through Monday)
issued at 238 pm cdt Mon oct 14 2019
dry conditions and mild conditions are expected through the rest
of the work week as high pressure shifts off to the east and
midlevel riding builds overhead. Temperatures will return to the|
70s for most of the area by Thursday and Friday. Depending on the
exact timing of the next front, Friday could even end up pushing
into the mid to upper 70s once again.
By Friday evening, the next front is forecast to move into the
area. Some models hint at some rain with this system, but location
and areal extent are very uncertain, therefore the forecast
remains dry for now. This will be a quick-moving system, and does
not pack much cold air, so Saturday could end up being a
seasonably pleasant day.
By Saturday night into Sunday, a deeper trough will be
approaching the area, bringing our first good chance for rain to
the area. The GFS even shows enough instability for a few
thunderstorms as well. This system will pack more cold air than
the previous system, but it still doesn't appear that snow will be
of any concern to the local area.
Aviation (for the 00z kgri kear tafs through 00z Tuesday)
issued at 652 pm cdt Mon oct 14 2019
main issues include llws behind a cold front passage overnight.
Also, some gusty winds during the late morning and afternoon on
Tuesday, with some cumulus development near 3-4k ft.

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.
