PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 337 AM CDT WED SEP 28 2016/

DISCUSSION...

Hard to find much to talk about weatherwise around here over the
next week. A deep upper low will cut off and sag south over the Ohio
River Valley while upper ridging builds in over the Plains this
week. Temperatures will warm back to near normal this afternoon as
mid level heights increase overhead. The upper low to our east will
send a weak backdoor cold front through the area overnight tonight.
This will bring temperatures back down a few degrees below normal
Thursday and Friday. Expect a warming trend by the weekend
underneath a more zonal flow.

Mid level ridging and subsidence will deter any precip from
developing through the week other than a few isolated showers in
the higher terrain. Extended range models show a stronger cold
front is possible sometime next week.
