SHORT TERM. (Today and Friday) Issued at 454 AM CST Thu Dec 5 2019
Quiet weather continues today despite a weak frontal passage that will be little more than a wind shift. Northerly winds will increase this afternoon. The pressure gradient increases as the surface low deepens ahead of the upper disturbance in Oklahoma. This disturbance will be far enough south to keep any precipitation potential at bay, but skies will become mostly cloudy. Highs are expected to be similar to the remainder part of the week . in the upper 40s to 50s, coolest where the snowpack remains.
Surface high pressure and some cooler air will build in tonight, passing overhead Friday morning. Friday will be cooler than Thursday, with highs in the 30s to low 40s expected.
LONG TERM. (Saturday through Wednesday) Issued at 454 AM CST Thu Dec 5 2019
Saturday and Sunday are warmer again ahead of the next upper disturbance moving in Sunday night. Southerly winds will be breezy Saturday as lee troughing deepens. The surface trough will move through the region Sunday before the coldest air dives in for the start of the work week. Highs in the upper 40s to 50s are expected. Enjoy the weekend!
The main upper disturbance will move through early Monday, and could bring a small chance for snow/snow flurries. There is not a lot of moisture to work with, so do not expect much in the way of precipitation. Model runs are all over the place with location of any precipitation, the best chances will be north of the area. Temperatures will drop through the day Monday as the colder air streams in. While highs are currently showing 30s for most, that high will be early in the day with 20s for most throughout the day.
Another push of cold air is expected Tuesday and then again Wednesday night/Thursday. There are some discrepancies with where the coldest air will end up, with the GFS colder than the EC. After Monday, the forecast remains dry, but the guidance indicates there is a potential for more light snow Tuesday/Tuesday night. Low confidence on any meaningful precipitation occurring.
AVIATION. (For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Friday) Issued at 1121 AM CST Thu Dec 5 2019
North winds will increase late this afternoon as a cold front pushes through the area. Sustained winds around 15-20kts are expected through the evening and overnight.
More notably, IFR stratus is expected to build in from the north by around 02-03Z. There is good agreement in the models on this timing, so confidence is relatively high. IFR to low-end MVFR stratus will then hang around through the overnight.
At this time, it appears that any fog or visibility restrictions will remain west of the terminals.
Stratus is expected to slowly break up Friday morning and winds will become light and variable.

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.
