...UPDATE TO AVIATION...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 322 AM CDT Sat May 27 2017

A cold front will slide through the forecast area today shifting
southeasterly winds to more of a northerly direction. Lower
portions of the atmosphere will become saturated behind this front
creating a thick deck of stratus. A few storms will be possible
across central Kansas this morning with additional storms possible
across far western Kansas this afternoon. Any storms that develop
this afternoon should dissipate by midnight with decreasing clouds
after midnight. As for temperatures, highs today look to range
from the lower 70s across west central Kansas to mid 80s across
south central Kansas.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 322 AM CDT Sat May 27 2017

Dry conditions are anticipated Sunday into the first part of next
week as an upper level ridge builds above the western United
States with high pressure being the dominate feature at the
surface. A few isolated storms will be possible Monday and Tuesday
evening, but most places look to remain dry. A better chance of
storms looks to be Wednesday into Thursday as the upper level
ridge treks east of the area and the next storm system moves in
from the west. As for temperatures, highs are progged to rise to
around 80 degrees each day with lows in the 50s.
