Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
611 AM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 205 AM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

Surface high pressure will build southward into the region today
and tonight allowing a considerably cooler and drier airmass to
overspread the Ozarks and Osage Plains. Highs today will only
reach the upper 70s to lower 80s while tonight`s lows fall into
the middle and upper 50s. Would not be surprised to see some of
the valleys in the eastern Ozarks fall to around 50 degrees

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 205 AM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

The pleasant weather conditions especially considering it is late
August will persist through the remainder of the work week and
into the weekend. Highs on a daily basis will generally climb to
around 80 degrees.

Cannot rule out a slight chance for showers late in the weekend
as a weakening front pushes southward but expect generally dry
weather through at least the weekend.

Will be watching a tropical system that will move likely move onto
the Texas coast late this week. The eventual track remains
uncertain but appears this system and associated moisture will
stay south of our area.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Thursday morning)
Issued at 557 AM CDT Wed Aug 23 2017

Pilots can expect VFR conditions at area terminals today and
tonight. The exception may be some lingering stratus in the
Branson terminal area early this morning. Otherwise surface high
pressure will build into the region providing quiet weather
