. AVIATION UPDATE .

SYNOPSIS. Issued at 217 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020

Cyclonic flow brought cloud cover as far west as Cedar Rapids; where they briefly went broken for a little bit late this morning. Clouds covered most of IL while high pressure building in from the west was providing sunny skies over most of Iowa west of a line from Dubuque to Fairfield. NNW winds at about 10 to 15 MPH were gusting up to around 30 MPH at times. Temperatures were considerably colder, with readings in the upper 20s and low 30s. Wind chills as of noon were mostly in the upper teens and low 20s.

SHORT TERM. (This Evening through Tuesday) ISSUED AT 217 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020

High pressure building over the area will result in light northwest winds and clear skies overnight and through the day Tuesday. Some stratus at 3 to 4k feet AGL will linger along and east of the MS River into the evening, with clear skies beyond that time. Temperatures will to drop into the mid teens to low 20s by daybreak Tuesday. After the cold start, they will rebound into the mid 30s NE to low 40s SW.

LONG TERM. (Tuesday Night through Monday) ISSUED AT 217 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020

Dry and seasonably cool conditions will be the rule this week into the weekend. An amplified upper level pattern will persist with synoptic systems currently forecast to pass either south or well north of the forecast area throughout.

Tuesday night through Wednesday: The surface and upper level ridge overhead Tuesday night will provide mostly clear skies and light winds, allowing temperatures to cool into the teens in the dry airmass. High, thin clouds will likely be on the increase Wednesday with continued light and variable winds to limit highs to the lower 40s at best.

An upper level jet topping the western CONUS ridge axis is progged to carve out low pressure at the surface and aloft over the central and southern plains Wednesday night, which all models depict passing to our south and filling Wednesday night and Thursday. An associated shield of light precipitation is shown by most 12Z models reaching into our far southern counties. However, confidence of this occurring is low and our forecast will remain dry for now, following the National Blend Model that holds pops below to 10 percent. The likelihood of thicker cloud cover should lead to cooler highs in the 30s with overnight lows in the 20s.

An upper level northwest flow then follows from Friday through the weekend. Mostly weak, embedded shortwaves will impact the area with possible flurries, while better forcing and precipitation is shown by the ECMWF and GFS focusing more on the Great Lakes. Temperatures are trended near to slightly above climatology with highs in the upper 30s to mid 40s and overnight lows in the 20s.

AVIATION. (For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday Night) ISSUED AT 1049 PM CST Mon Nov 30 2020

VFR conditions are still expected through the period as high pressure remain in place. Later in the period winds will die down and become vrbl into Wednesday AM. No sig wx aviation impacts expected.

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.
