Area Forecast Discussion...Updated Aviation
National Weather Service Saint Louis MO
726 PM CDT MON MAY 30 2016

.SHORT TERM...  (Through Late Tonight)
Issued at 244 PM CDT Mon May 30 2016

Getting isolated showers/storms this afternoon across parts of the
forecast area with diurnal heating and instability.  More
significant is the convection across southwest MO associated with an
MCV.  This convection will likely move into parts of central and
southeast MO late this afternoon and early this evening.  A few
storms may be strong to severe in central MO late this afternoon and
early this evening.  Although the convection should weaken in
intensity later this evening as the atmosphere stabilizes with
nocturnal cooling, some of this activity may continue to push
northeastward into much of our forecast area overnight.  Low
temperatures should be a little warmer than the previous night due
to increased cloud cover and a return to low level southerly winds.

.LONG TERM...  (Tuesday through Next Monday)
Issued at 244 PM CDT Mon May 30 2016

Storm chances will be on the increase Tuesday as cold front moves
into northwestern MO by midday. Highs on Tuesday hard to pin down as
it will depend on cloud cover and precipitation. For now, they will
be a bit above normal in the low to mid 80s. Will see several rounds
of storms with best chances Tuesday night and Wednesday as front
moves through forecast area. Some decent instability and lift along
boundary, but it will be marginal especially over southeast MO and
southwestern IL. So SPC has a marginal risk over southeast half of
forecast area on Wednesday.

Rain to taper off on Thursday with drier weather through Friday as
weak ridging builds in. However, next system to approach region for
the weekend but timing hard to pin down, so kept slight chance pops
for Saturday and Sunday. Temperatures will be near normal through
the extended.

Issued at 725 PM CDT Mon May 30 2016

Scattered showers and thunderstorms continued affect parts of
southwest Illinois as well as central and east central Missouri
early this evening. Any storms will have the potential to produce
heavy downpours with MVFR and possible IFR ceilings and
visibilities. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible
throughout the TAF period, but best chance will be during Tuesday
afternoon. Have kept VCSH going in all of the TAFS.

Specifics for KSTL: There currently are showers and isolated
thunderstorms over eastern MO and southwest IL, but they have been
staying out of the vicinity. Scattered showers and thunderstorms are
possible throughout the TAF period, but the best chance will be
during Tuesday afternoon. Any storms will have the potential to
produce heavy downpours with MVFR and possible IFR ceilings and
visibilities.
