weak frontal boundary dropping south across the local area this
evening. Weak low level moisture transport focuses back into the
boundary, while rap soundings point to some elevated instability.
Could be enough forcing to spark isolated showers storms.
Models remain in good agreement with sliding an upper level trough
axis southeast across the upper mississippi river valley Wed wed
night. Meanwhile at the sfc, high pressure builds in from the
plains. In addition, little if any saturation for this northern
stream wave to tap into. Outside of some clouds, expect minimal
impacts from the upper level trough as a result.
However, to the southwest, an MCS is expected to kick off across the
central plains tonight - taking an eastward track wed. Expect some
waning in areal extent intensity as it loses the influence of the
low level jet, but still follows along the edge of the main bubble
of instability. Most models would keep the pcpn just south of the
forecast area, although a few suggest it could skirt across
northeast ia southwest wi. Trending the forecast dry for the moment.

looking like an extended period of dry, and relatively cool
conditions for the rest of the week - or at least through sat.
Upper level shortwave ridge builds into the area thu, easing east
early sat. The sfc high follows suit, shifting across the eastern|
great lakes by 12z sat. Several dry and mostly sunny days should
Upper level trough then progged to push in from the northern plains
late Sat night-Sunday. Southerly fetch picks up ahead of the
shortwave, returning warmer-more moist air to feed the system.
Expect showers storms to develop in response to the lift moisture
interaction... With high chances to the north. How far south, mostly
along and ahead of an associated sfc front, is in question - and
certainly tough to answer this far out. Some hints that an MCS could
spark Sun night to the southwest, moving east on mon. All said, sun
and Mon currently holding a decent shot for rain for the area.

brief MVFR conditions are possible tonight in stratocumulus. A
cold front and weak disturbance sags southeast across the area
bringing a few showers overnight. High pressure builds in on
Wednesday providingVFR conditions. Mid to high level clouds will
be found at the TAF sites at times from mid Wednesday morning into

I have no idea of they are useful or accurate, I leave that to the reader. 2) Articles others have written and submitted. If you have questions on these, please contact the author. 3) Articles that represent my personal opinions. These are intended to promote thought and for entertainment. These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
