Dry, pleasant weather is expected through Monday. Rain chances
return Monday night with an approaching cold front.
Near term through Sunday
Dry and quiet conditions should continue under high pressure, with
northerly flow aloft maintaining below average temperature into
Short term Sunday night through Tuesday
A deepening central plains trough will shift high pressure eastward
by early Monday, with return southwesterly flow supporting an
increase in both temperature and moisture. As such, cloud cover
should increase through the day Monday, with high temperature a
degree or two warmer, yet still below climatological normals.
Stratiform rain chances are expected to increase late Monday through
early Tuesday with the passage of a warm front and in response to
increased shortwave activity embedded in southwesterly flow aloft.
This should also support the continued rise in temperature to near,
or slightly above averages overnight Monday through Tuesday
Long term Tuesday night through Saturday |
An approaching cold front should increase precipitation chances to
categorical late Tuesday into Wednesday. Uncertainty remains in the
timing of the frontal passage, which also implies uncertainty in the
extent of thunderstorm coverage and or presence of severe parameters.
Though, long range models suggest poor mid-level lapse rates should
hamper a widespread severe threat overall.
Beyond Wednesday, the return of surface high pressure and
northwesterly flow aloft should support another dry and cool trend
into early next weekend.
Aviation 04z Sunday through Thursday
High pressure will supportVFR and easterly sfc wind through the taf
Restriction potential will escalate through early week with the
approach and passage of a cold front.

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.
