Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
254 PM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday night)
Issued at 251 PM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

A cold front will sink slowly southward for tonight into Wednesday
across Kansas, with hot temperatures continuing for locations along
and east of the frontal boundary Wednesday afternoon. A few
showers/storms will be possible for locations mainly east of the
Kansas turnpike Wednesday night as moisture transport increases,
however the better chances look to be northeast of the area.
Meanwhile upper level ridging will build over the Mississippi valley
region for Thursday/Friday, and cause a deepening upper trough to
dig in over the western states. This will create hot/dry windy
conditions for Kansas as the surface pressure gradient tightens
up.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Tuesday)
Issued at 251 PM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

We should see a continuation of hot/dry windy conditions for the
upcoming weekend as the upper level trough moves very slowly
eastward across the Rockies. Long range models show the upper tough
finally moving closer to the region for early next week with good
chances of showers/storms on Monday and Tuesday.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Wednesday afternoon)
Issued at 1227 PM CDT Tue Sep 19 2017

VFR conditions are forecast at all sites throughout the period.
Isolated elevated showers are possible at KCNU for the first hour
or so of forecast. Otherwise gusty winds are expected from good
mixing and increasing surface pressure gradient. Front will work
through all but KCNU either very late tonight or tomorrow
morning.  -Howerton
