SHORT TERM. (This evening through Wednesday night) Issued at 329 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019
Upper air obs and satellite data show W-NW flow in place across the region, as broad troughing associated with low pressure over the Hudson Bay area continues to affect much of the CONUS. Weak ridging remains over the Rockies, ahead of another disturbances moving toward the West Coast. Subtle mid level forcing brought a small and narrow band of flurries/light snow to portions of our north-central KS counties today, with heavier snow (1-4" was reported) having affected far NW KS. Radar returns over the last hour or so have shown activity diminishing, a trend that is expected to continue through the mid/late afternoon hours. At the surface, high pressure has been sliding right through the heart of the Central Plains, bringing light/variable winds this early-mid afternoon. As far as sky cover goes, southern areas with the light precip continues to see partly/mostly cloudy skies . further north has seen much more sun. Isn't a ton of difference in temperatures today vs Monday, 3 PM obs range from the lower 20s in the northeast to near 30 in the southwest.
The forecast for tonight through Wednesday night remains a dry one. Models continue to be in pretty good agreement showing northwesterly flow lingering in the upper levels through the first half of the day tomorrow . before turning more zonal as the next shortwave disturbance approaches from the west. Precipitation chances tonight tied to another subtle disturbance and strong upper level jet streak are expected to remain well north of the CWA, as are chances associated with that next disturbance which moves through the region Wednesday night.
At the sfc, high pressure currently over the area keeps sliding east, with southwesterly flow building in this evening. As that next disturbance moves through the Dakotas later tonight, models show a weak frontal boundary sliding in from the NNE, bringing northerly then eventually easterly winds to roughly the northern half of the CWA . which would be pretty light. Those winds don't look to last too long, as sfc low pressure deepens over CO, switching winds back to the S-SE. Could be a touch breezy for southwestern portions of the CWA. The most notable change to the short term period was to high temperatures for tomorrow. Guidance/models were in pretty good agreement and supported raising highs, much of the area should again see plenty of sun, lower level temps are warmer and winds are expected to be solidly southerly. Raised highs 3-6 degrees CWA-wide, little hesitant across the northern areas where an inch or so of snowpack still remains . have lower 30s in the northeast to near 50 in the southwest.
LONG TERM. (Thursday through Tuesday) Issued at 329 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019
The forecast for Thursday and Thursday night remains dry, and for most locations, Friday looks to be dry as well. Models show continued generally zonal flow across the region, and the main question with precip chances during the day on Friday are tied to whether precipitation tied yet another shortwave disturbance can clip far northern portions of the CWA. Chances aren't great, but do have some 20 PoPs in there for Friday afternoon. Uncertainty in PoPs continues into Friday night as well, plenty of differences between models yet to work out with whether we get any precip or it stays outside the CWA. PoPs are only 20% at this point. Expecting a couple of trough/frontal passage during this time frame, not looking to do much else other than bring a change in wind direction. Thursday and Friday are currently forecast to be the warmest days area-wide of the entire 7-day period, with mostly 40s for Thursday and mid 40s to mid 50s for Friday.
The colder air that looks to accompany Friday's frontal passage lags behind the switch in winds, not building into the area until Friday night . but lingering through the weekend/early next week. The forecast for Saturday is currently dry, and depending on which model solution pans out, at least part of the day on Sunday could be as well. Another upper level shortwave disturbance looks to moved out of CO onto the Plains, bringing increased chances for precipitation starting as early as Sunday afternoon (will prob end up being later than this) . and continuing on into the day on Monday. This system will bring the potential for accumulating snowfall, and at this point the focus is across the southern half of our CWA. Highs are forecast in the 20s/30s for the weekend, with mid 30s for Monday.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 06Z Wednesday) Issued at 1137 PM CST Tue Dec 10 2019
VFR conditions are expected through the period. Winds are not expected to be strong at the surface, but there could be some stronger winds aloft and have some low level wind shear.

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.
