Short term (this evening through Friday)
issued at 325 pm cdt Thu jul 18 2019
temperatures continue to warm this afternoon and with the dew points
in the lower to mid 70s, the heat index values continue to be a few
degrees either side of 100 already this afternoon.
The heat and humidity is expected to continue through Friday. Expect
only a few clouds to move through the area. Temperatures will only
drop to the 70s tonight, and many of those will be in the mid to
upper 70s in the south and eastern parts of the area. On Friday
highs are expected to top out in the upper 90s to 105 degrees again.
Once again, heat index values should get into the 105 to 110 degree
range. There could be a little more of a breeze Friday afternoon,
but will offer little relief to the hot temperatures.
Long term (Friday night through Thursday)
issued at 325 pm cdt Thu jul 18 2019
the broad upper level ridge continues across the area Friday night
into Saturday morning. A surface low and cold front develop to the
northwest Friday night. This allows for south winds during the night
Friday night and temperatures remain on the warm side during the
night. The cold front moves into the forecast area late Friday night
into Saturday. Models have some timing differences with the front,
but for the most part it enters the northwest part of the area late
Friday night and by mid day it is either out of the area or nearly
out of the area. That will bring a temperature gradient across the
area. North of interstate 80 (or so) will high highs mainly in the
80s, but to the south 90s are expected, with upper 90s in north
central kansas. The heat will continue across north central kansas
In addition to the change in temperatures, there is an upper level
wave that moves through the area. There could be a few showers and
thunderstorms in the north Friday night and spread across south|
central nebraska Saturday afternoon. The wave strengthens a little
Saturday night and with the front just to the south of the area,
there is a chance for some thunderstorms Saturday night.
The thunderstorms are expected to continue into Sunday, and come to
an end Sunday afternoon. Temperatures will be markedly cooler with
highs only in the 70s. There will be a few chances for thunderstorms
that continue Sunday night into Monday morning.
We will have northwest flow Monday through Thursday. There will be a
few weak waves that move through the area, but have a dry forecast
at this time. Temperatures will remain on the cooler side, but will
gradually warm up a little through the period.

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.
