Synopsis
Issued at 140 am edt Mon aug 26 2019
periods of rain will be possible today into Tuesday as a slow
moving system drags a frontal boundary across the area. An
isolated thunderstorm is possible, especially Monday night into
Tuesday. High temperatures today will range from the upper 60s to
mid 70s and in the upper 70s to lower 80s on Tuesday.

Short term (today and tonight)
issued at 300 am edt Mon aug 26 2019
a convectively enhanced vorticity maximum just nnw of saint louis mo
will continue to migrate slowly east-northeast into northern il
today, while at the surface a warm front approaches from the ohio
valley. Ramping low level southerly flow downstream of the upper
wave, and over this warm front, will transfer a wall of deep
moisture northward into the local area later this morning into
this afternoon. Precipitable water values will increase to near 2
inches within this impressive theta-e plume. Shower coverage and
intensity should be able to blossom over the area as a result,
especially this afternoon. Embedded thunder chances continue to
look rather low, though still could see some heavier rainfall
rates given abundant moisture and warm cloud layer exceeding 12
kft. The rain and clouds will really hold temps down today
otherwise, with highs generally in the upper 60s to mid 70s.

Leftover mid level wave and an associated pre-frontal trough warm
front will keep chances for rain showers in the forecast into
tonight. Some weak instability attempts to overspread as low levels
continue to moisten. This may be enough to generate an isolated
thunderstorm and locally heavy rainfall, best chances late
afternoon and evening west of i-69.

Long term (Tuesday through Sunday)
issued at 300 am edt Mon aug 26 2019
an upper level trough will accelerate east through the north-central
us Tuesday, and the great lakes on Wednesday. Cold front passage on
the leading edge still expected to come through Tuesday with
additional chances for showers. Main surge of cooler and drier
canadian air funnels in on Wednesday post-frontal with breezy
conditions and below normal temps. High pressure then builds in for
Thursday in wake of the upper trough axis with lows in the 50s and
highs in the 70s. Low rain chances do return later Friday into the
weekend as additional lower amplitude shortwave energy forces a
moisture-starved cold front into the local area.

Aviation (for the 06z tafs through 06z Monday night)
issued at 146 am edt Mon aug 26 2019
top down saturation along with low level moisture advection
through the period with more widespread rainfall arriving by late
morning supports decay of flight conditions as ceiling heights
lower into ifr range by midday. Low pressure frontal wave will
lift from northern missouri to eastern wisconsin by this evening,
placing northern indiana in warm sector which should allow for
some improvement in ceiling and more spotty convection for latter
part of forecast period.

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.
