Short term (this evening through Monday)
issued at 148 pm cdt Sun aug 25 2019
the focus in the short term is overnight passing of a cold front
and potential for thunderstorms.
Late tonight, a cold front will approach from the northwest.
Timing has been pretty consistent run-to-run with the front
entering the northwest part of the forecast area around sunrise
and exiting the southeast forecast area by noon. Steep lapse mid
level lapse rates set-up over the area overnight ahead of the
front, but that also implies some capping issues with warm h7
issues. Given the decent instability and strong frontal boundary
feel there may be a few marginally strong storms capable of small
hail and gusty winds (40 mph range) as the front moves through,
and most likely northeast of a kearney to hastings to hebron line.
There will likely be a sharp cutoff on the southwest end of the
main thunderstorm area with very little precipitation or a much
more limited area for areas south of the kearney to hastings to
hebron line. Have focused much higher precipitation chances in the
northeast forecast area and likelihood for showers storms appears
Expecting a fairly quick clearing trend by midday early afternoon
behind the front as northwest winds gust to 25 mph most likely,
and begin to usher in much drier air by evening. Though its a cold
front, temperatures for many areas will be warmer than today
simply because we will have some well-deserved sunshine in the
Long term (Monday night through Sunday)
issued at 148 pm cdt Sun aug 25 2019
Monday night will bring cooler temperatures with lows in the 50s
and northwest winds dropping off as high pressure moves toward
the forecast area.
Even through surface high pressure is building into the area Tuesday
afternoon, short wave sliding by to the north and h25 speed MAX may|
trigger some afternoon sprinkles or a brief showers. Pretty dry in
the low levels (thank goodness) so little more than a trace would
fall, and mostly just across parts of south central nebraska. Mid-
level clouds will keep temperatures well below seasonal normals.
Wednesday morning is likely to be coolest morning in quite some time
with lows in the 50s across the forecast area, possibly even some in
the upper 40s. The rest of the day looks very pleasant with sunshine
and comfortable temperatures in the 70s. Thursday starts to see some
increase in dewpoints as winds turn to the south ahead of next
system and is likely to be the warmest day of the week with highs
back into the 80s.
The transition to the next period of unsettled weather begins again
Thursday night Friday with the next cold front slipping south
through the forecast area. Ec GFS and even the canadian focus the
main front post frontal rains Friday with another fairly
widespread rain event possible. Precipitation chances remain on
the lower end right now but expect those to be ramping up with
time. It appears the post frontal regime will be "mainly" dry
through the labor day holiday and remaining on the cool side.
Aviation (for the 18z kgri kear tafs through 18z Monday)
issued at 1206 pm cdt Sun aug 25 2019
MVFR ceilings andVFR visibilities will be the norm most of the
day today as low clouds hold firm in general southeast flow. Some
patchy fog is possible tonight ahead of a stronger cold front. The
front will pass through in the last 6 hours of the forecast period
and shift winds to the northwest by late Monday morning. Showers
and isolated thunderstorms will accompany the front, especially in
the kgri area with more of a glancing shot in the kearney areas.
However, there is increasing confidence of ifr MVFR conditions for
a time as the front pushes through Monday morning.

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.
