SHORT TERM. (This evening through Saturday night) Issued at 240 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2019
Northwest flow aloft will gradually become more westerly by Sunday ahead of shortwave digging southeastward across the western CONUS. Dry and very mild weather is expected Saturday after a mostly clear and calm night tonight. Not seeing a strong signal for fog tonight, but cannot rule out a few patches in lower lying areas, especially after the recent and melting snow. Otherwise very mild air will overspread the region tonight, with H85 temps rising to around 10C on Saturday. This will boost highs well into the 50s Saturday under mainly sunny skies. There will be a few high cirrus clouds, but this should have little impact on temperatures. A mild night expected Saturday night as light westerly winds though the night will help keep the boundary layer mixed some.
Sunday will likely be a few degrees cooler than Saturday, as mixing will be weaker and H85 temps cool a few degrees. In addition there will be an increase in clouds as the western CONUS shortwave begins to move into the plains. Still highs in the mid 40s to mid 50s are expected.
LONG TERM. (Sunday through Friday) Issued at 240 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2019
The shortwave quickly moves eastward across the region Sunday night into Monday. A cold front will plunge southward behind surface low pressure that moves east across the area with the wave. Mid-level FGEN develops develops across north central Neb. Sunday evening and persists till around sunrise Monday morning. Sounding profiles confirm that a period of light snow should result, with snow accumulating to near 1 inch across Boyd county. Elsewhere generally 1/2 inch or less accumulation is expected. It will be much colder behind the front Monday into Tuesday as a batch of arctic air moves southward into the area. Highs will struggle to get out of the teens across far north central Nebraska both days.
Mild Pacific air works it's way back into the area by Thursday into Friday, with highs returning to the mid 30s to mid 40s. Continued dry through this time as northwest flow aloft dominates.
AVIATION. (For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening) Issued at 537 PM CST Fri Dec 6 2019
VFR conditions should prevail the next 24 hours across western Nebraska. Skies are currently clear throughout western Nebraska. Some high clouds are currently moving across Idaho and Montana to bring a few high clouds to the area for Saturday. Winds will be light southwest overnight, then increase to 22015G23KT at KVTN by 20Z Saturday. Patchy fog is possible in low lying areas late tonight and early Saturday. Mesoscale models do not indicate this should occur, so no mention in the 00Z TAF issuance.
LBF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

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.
