.UPDATE...

southern Missouri river valley.

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 319 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

A nice day ahead with strong warm air advection ahead of an
approaching trough pushing temperatures into the 60s and low 70s.
It could get a bit breezy across the James Valley today, but a
veering wind profile and limited mixing should keep winds from
getting much higher than 30 mph, despite a steep pressure
gradient.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 319 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

Cooler temperatures and increasing chances for precipitation
highlight the long term. A cooling trend will start Thursday and
continue through the weekend. The best chance for precipitation
will be Friday night through Saturday night. During this time
there could be a mix of rain/snow in the morning Saturday,
however any accumulations should melt and have no impact. Highs
will be in the 50s and 60s Thursday cooling to the 40s and 50s
Saturday and Sunday. High temperatures should moderate back into
the 60s by Monday and Tuesday. The 8 to 14 day extended forecast
is pointing to above normal late October temperatures and below
normal precipitation.
