SHORT TERM. (Today through Tuesday) Issued at 319 AM CST Mon Dec 16 2019
Very quiet weather today through Tuesday with a large area of Pacific high pressure stationary across the Rockies. The flow aloft is northwest but promises to continue steering arctic high pressure north and east of western and north central Nebraska. The focus is on temperatures and the forecast leans on the cooler short term model blend vs the warmer guidance. Lows tonight lean on the high resolution NAM for guidance. This model captures the valley effects but about 5 or so degrees needed to get the forecast close to the guidance blend.
LONG TERM. (Tuesday night through Sunday) Issued at 319 AM CST Mon Dec 16 2019
A fairly strong Pacific cold front will move through Thursday night but the cool down is very modest. 1030mb high pressure centered over the Rockies will strengthen to 1035mb with the passage of the front and temperatures will resume warming aloft Friday through Sunday. An approaching long wave trof off the West coast and southwest flow aloft across the Rockies will drive warmer air into wrn and ncntl Nebraska.
The temperature forecast indicates 50s by next weekend which could translate to 60s as snow cover will be mostly melted and temperatures at the h850mb level rise to around 15C. The southwest flow aloft could generate high clouds which is difficult to forecast so the forecast of 50s for highs is appropriate.
The forecast is dry through next Monday at this point as there is no focus aloft or at the sfc for rain or snow.
AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night) Issued at 1028 PM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Lingering IFR ceilings persist across portions of western and north central Nebraska late this evening. These ceilings should lift, but confidence is low regarding the exact time of clearing and could linger till a few hours before sunrise. Winds will be light. VFR conditions are expected after sunrise and continue through the day.
LBF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES. None.

I do not sell or share any user data or anything else for that matter. I do not keep site logs longer than I need to to keep bad actors off the site. Basically, I delete them after looking at them. If you are subject to CCPA, Google ads on this site will not be based on your past behavior so you will likely not see an ad for a lawn mower just because you looked for one at a big box website.

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted.

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.
