UPDATED. Issued at 555 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Starting to get more suggestions from some of the meso models (RAP/HRRR) that there could be a few hour window tonight where the relatively dry atmosphere locally could be overcome, with some isentropic upglide providing enough lift for a period of flurries or even light snow. Don't see much more than a dusting if realized, but the forecast of "no snow" might be shifting toward at least some flurries. Better light snow chances still lie to the south, but that could include some of NE IA/SW WI.
SHORT TERM. (Today through Monday) Issued at 135 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Looks like the NAM has decided to join the plethora of other models with taking an upper level shortwave trough out of the southern Rockies tonight, sliding it east across IA/IL Sun night/Mon. Light pcpn results, but looks to stay just south of the local area (previous NAM runs suggested snow as far north as I-90).
Temperatures going to stay on the coldside into the early part of the new work week as northwest flow a loft influences the region. Highs in the teens/20s with single digits above/below normal expected.
LONG TERM. (Tuesday through Saturday) Issued at 135 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Quiet with little in the way of pcpn chances on the horizon.
The weekend cold will persist for the early part of the new work week as an upper level trough/northwest flow continues to pull Canadian air southward. The GFS and EC remain in good agreement with upper level short/long wave ridging to build in for the later half of the week, with moderating to mild temperatures resulting. The mild temps could stick around into Christmas - which could do away with the current snow cover (putting at hit on a white Christmas). The CPC 8-14 day outlook suggests above normal temps through the end of the month.
AVIATION. (For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning) Issued at 546 AM CST Sun Dec 15 2019
Increasing cloud cover will be seen today into tonight as a weak trough of low pressure tracks east out of the Plains into the area. Clouds look to be mainly VFR but may have a bout of MVFR at KRST after midnight tonight. Have also included p6sm snow flurries the KRST/KLSE airports (KRST after 22z and KLSE after 03z). Winds will be light westerly to light and variable.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors.

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.
