Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
311 PM CDT WED AUG 31 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 222 PM CDT Wed Aug 31 2016

In the near term, ongoing scattered showers/isolated
thunderstorms will continue ahead of a cold front that will drop
south through the cwfa. Some pockets of heavy rain will be
possible, otherwise severe or high impact weather weather is not
expected unless the localized heavy rain affects a poor drainage
area or an area that got heavy rain earlier today. Will not be
carrying any further mention of flooding in the hwo.

Drier air will gradually work it`s way south tonight into
Thursday. It looks like clouds will hang on for some areas into
Thursday morning, particularly over southern sections of the cwfa,
but by afternoon the weather looks very pleasant to start off

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 222 PM CDT Wed Aug 31 2016

The comfortable weather should remain with us into the weekend
with a sfc ridge of high pressure extending from the western
Great Lakes and Midwest south into our area.

An upper level ridge axis will slowly move across eastern KS and
MO over the weekend then shift off to the east as a broad upper
level trough shifts farther east into the western CONUS. South
sfc winds and warmer temperatures can be expected Labor Day into
the middle of next week. Some small chances for rain may occur
during this time in a broad weak southwest upper level flow
pattern but for now am only carrying somewhat higher chances for
rain for Wednesday. Afternoon heat index values in the mid 90s
will be possible for some areas Mon-Wed.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday afternoon)
Issued at 1211 PM CDT Wed Aug 31 2016

A few showers and thunderstorms will continue for this afternoon.
Kept VCTS in for SGF the next few hours. Once these storms move
through the area and if the TAF sites can clear out, fog will be
the main concern. As of right now most sites will be in MVFR for
the early morning hours tomorrow. Winds will generally be light
out of the northeast.
