National Weather Service North Platte NE
804 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021 .UPDATE... Issued at 802 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021 A forecast update is in place for slightly cooler low temperatures across swrn Nebraska tonight. The forecast leans on the guidance blend which verified fairly well Saturday night. Plus, the evening upper air flights at Denver and North Platte show drier air is in place and sfc winds should become light by morning. The clear skies expected overnight, very dry air and predicted light winds shown by the RAP model support lows in the lower to mid 30s across swrn Nebraska. && .SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday night) Issued at 339 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021 Mostly quiet weather tonight and tomorrow will begin to give way to the forecast area`s next chance for precipitation early Tuesday morning. The upper level ridge axis will progress east tonight and tomorrow as an upper level low moves into the western United States. Southerly to southwesterly flow at 850 mb overnight and the resulting WAA should keep surface temperatures moderated despite clear skies with highs ranging from the mid 30s in the southwest to the low 40s in north central Nebraska. Cooler temperatures in the river valleys are possible once again. Above average temperatures will continue on Monday. Southerly flow and warm air pooling ahead of the cold front will bring temperatures into the 70s, around 10 degrees above normal. Some high clouds may develop during the day as moist upper air moves into western Nebraska, but this will not have any major cooling to temperatures at the surface. Winds will become gusty on Monday afternoon. The low level jet will shift to the east and the pressure gradient will steepen at the surface. The strongest wind gusts will be in north central Nebraska, with speeds up to 30 mph. Elevated fire weather conditions are expected due to this wind, but RH will be in the upper 20s to low 30s across most of the forecast area, which may be a limiting factor to fire development. The cold front will begin to enter the western Panhandle from the northwest late on Monday night. Ahead of the front, overnight lows will be warmer compared to previous nights with lows ranging from the low 40s in the Panhandle to the upper 40s in north central Nebraska. .LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday) Issued at 339 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021 As the center of the surface low moves east along the South Dakota/Nebraska state line, the cold front will be dragged across western and north central Nebraska through the day on Tuesday. This will create a sharp contrast in temperatures across the forecast area, with highs in the 50s in the Panhandle and highs in the low 70s in north central Nebraska. Winds will shift to the northwest and become gusty in the Panhandle and southwest Nebraska. Most areas north of Interstate 80 have the potential to receive precipitation, but the possibility increases towards the South Dakota state line This system will be stratiform in nature and QPF is generally forecasted to be less than an inch. As temperatures drop overnight on Tuesday, some areas of the Panhandle and Sandhills may receive snow or a rain-snow mix, particularly in Sheridan County. Current models are pointing towards low snow ratios and an increase in snow ratios could result in higher snow amounts in those impacted areas. Will continue to monitor for greater snow potential Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. The system will move east out of the forecast area by the end of the day on Wednesday. Cloud cover will persist through in the northern half of the forecast area, leading to another gradient in high temperatures with the mid 40s in the north and the upper 50s in southwest Nebraska. Behind the exiting low an upper level ridge will begin to build again across the western United States, moving east into the Great Plains. This will result in a gradual warming trend through the rest of the week, with highs reaching the 60s by the weekend. Some upper level moisture may lead to cloudy skies at that time. && .AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Monday evening) Issued at 621 PM CDT Sun Oct 17 2021 VFR conditions expected to prevail through tomorrow evening. Some high clouds pass through and winds remain gusty from the south tomorrow afternoon, with gusts around 15 to 20kts possible. && .LBF WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... None. && $$ UPDATE...CDC SHORT TERM...Meltzer LONG TERM...Meltzer AVIATION...Brown

National Weather Service Los Angeles/Oxnard CA
511 PM PDT Sun Oct 17 2021 .SYNOPSIS...17/927 AM. A cold front moving through the area will bring a chance of light rain and drizzle to the area tonight into Monday morning. There will be cooling today and Monday before temperatures rise a little through Thursday as high pressure redevelops. Another chance for light rain develops over next weekend. && .SHORT TERM (TDY-WED)...17/156 PM. Synoptically, there is a 540 dam trough dropping down the west coast to nearly the San Francisco Bay area. Over the next twelve hours, this trough will drop far enough south and cut off, bringing a little precipitation to at least the northern portion of our area overnight. Another trough will follow on Wednesday but that one will probably just clip the northern part of our area. A ridge builds on Thursday bringing a brief break in the pattern and the high temperature of the week, before another trough extending from a closed Gulf of Alaska low brings impacts the area beginning next Friday. Skies are mostly clear over the area right now except for a few over the Ventura Co mountains and some offshore clouds. Today has been much cooler than yesterday due to falling heights and a to moderate onshore flow. HRRR and local models are still showing this reversal of the pressure gradients to bring near- advisory level southerly and westerly winds to portions of the Antelope Valley and the higher elevations of the LA county mountains this afternoon and evening. While the fire weather indices are much lower than yesterday, the combination of the gusty onshore winds, low humidities, and critically dry fuels will bring elevated fire weather conditions to the Los Angeles county mountains and Antelope Valley this afternoon. The trough will move into northern California tonight and a cool cutoff upper low will form and then traverse the the state west to east before moving into Nevada. As it moves, it will drag a weak cold front into the Central Coast. The lift from the front along with the cyclonic flow aloft will spin up a deep marine layer. The front will bring a chance of rain to the Central Coast while the rapidly deepening marine layer will allow for a chance of drizzle or even light rain in Los Angeles County. The front will rapidly weaken early Monday morning and will likely not hold together long enough to be a rain producer for Ventura and Los Angeles Counties, but the deep marine layer will continue to produce drizzle and a slight chance of a shower. Rainfall amounts from the overnight and morning hours, if any, should range from a few hundredths to about a quarter inch in the upslope locations. There will be fairly rapid clearing behind the front starting in the Central Coast later in the morning and then working through areas south of Pt Conception in the afternoon. With the exception of the Central Coast most areas will see another 8 to 12 degrees of cooling as the front passes. The entire area will come in 8 to 16 degrees below normal. Monday night should be clear and cold as the front and cold air advection should wipe the marine inversion out, with chilly overnight lows to all of the area. A little ridge will provide a break between troughs and heights could build to 578 dam on Tuesday. The onshore flow will markedly lessen, and weak offshore could even set in. The sunny skies and neutral to offshore flow will bring 6 to 12 degrees of warming, but afternoon highs will still be 4 to 8 degrees below normal. For those interested in baseball weather, there shouldn`t be rain at Dodger stadium Tuesday through Thursday, but there will be cool evenings with overnight lows in the mid-50s. On Wednesday the ridge makes way for a system moving into the Pacific northwest. The tail end of the cold front associated with this storm will bring a slight chance of light showers to northern San Luis Obispo County. .LONG TERM (THU-SUN)...17/200 PM. A pop-up ridge pushes in from the southeast on Thursday, bringing heights up to around 585 dam and the warmest temperatures of the week. However, there will still be some slight onshore flow and skies will likely be partly cloudy as mid and high level clouds stream overhead is advance of the next trof, so things won`t get too warm. Downtown LA will only hit around 75 degrees which is still 4 below normal. Ensembles point to a active weekend beginning on Friday as another in the series of storms moves into north of the state. There is still quite a bit of uncertainty with the exact track of the storm, which has several little impulses. Right now the Central Coast has about an 80% chance of some precipitation beginning on Friday night while the LA area is only around 30% beginning Saturday afternoon. Rain chances will continue off and on through at least Sunday. It doesn`t look to be significant rain maker. Temperatures will remain well below average during this period of precipitation. && .AVIATION...18/0010Z. At 2345Z at KLAX, the marine layer was 1400 feet deep. The top of the inversion was around 2200 feet at a temperature of 17 degrees C. A weak cold front and rapidly deepening marine layer will bring a surge of low clouds and fog into the coastal slopes tonight/ Monday morning with areas of drizzle and 20-30 percent chance of light rain, mainly in the 06z-18z time frame. Mostly expecting MVFR cigs tonight, but could rise into VFR category by mid morning Monday. Lower confidence in timing of ceiling arrival which could be +/- 2 hours from TAF timing. KLAX...Moderate confidence in TAF. MVFR cigs expected tonight, potentially lifting to VFR category on Monday morning as marine layer deepens rapidly. There is a 30 percent chance of light rain or drizzle on Monday morning. KBUR...Moderate confidence in TAF. MVFR cigs expected overnight, potentially lifting to VFR category on Monday morning as marine layer deepens rapidly. There is a 30 percent chance of light rain or drizzle on Monday morning. && .MARINE...17/920 AM. Winds and seas are expected to remain fairly calm through this afternoon. Late tonight into early Monday, NW winds will strengthen from north to south ahead of an approaching frontal system. Moderate confidence in winds strengthening to SCA level from the Central Coast to San Nicolas Island by early Monday morning. Confidence increases through the day on Monday as winds strengthen further, with moderate to high confidence in widespread SCA level winds Monday afternoon through late Monday night. SCA level winds may spread into the western portion of the Santa Barbara Channel during this time, but confidence is low to moderate. Winds and seas are then expected to be below SCA levels for all coastal waters Tuesday through Thursday. && .LOX WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES... CA...NONE. PZ...NONE. && .HAZARD POTENTIAL OUTLOOK (WED-SUN). A storm system could affect the region next weekend. && $$ PUBLIC...Rorke/jld AVIATION...Gomberg MARINE...Sweet/Stewart SYNOPSIS...jld
