Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
208 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday night)
Issued at 207 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

A strong frontal system will begin to approach the region today.
This will allow some good WWA to take place as the winds pick up
from the South.  This will allow temperatures to remain well above
normal for today as the skies will be clear with Southerly winds.
Tuesday, the front will begin to move through the region.  Due to
very weak moisture transport ahead of this system, any precipitation
that occurs is expected to occur in Northern Kansas and Southern
Nebraska. For most of Kansas, this front will come through dry. High
temperatures for Tuesday, on the other hand, will likely occur
early.  High temperatures will be above normal but are expected to
occur around noon on Tuesday for much of central Kansas and then
drop through the afternoon.  Once the front comes through, the winds
will shift to the West and Northwest and will pick up. Wind gusts up
to 30 mph are possible.  Do not see advisory level winds for Tuesday
afternoon and Wednesday.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 207 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

Temperatures will return to normal for a few days as a number of
systems come through.  These systems will not have much if any
moisture transport to help them produce precipitation.  As such,
they will come through dry.  This will keep winds out of the North
for the most part and will keep temperatures closer to normal for a
while.  Temperatures don`t start to climb back above normal until
Sunday.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 1047 PM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

Except for some lingering MVFR cigs and perhaps patchy MVFR fog
vsbys in far southeast Kansas through 09z or so, VFR conditions
will prevail across the area overnight through Monday. Northwest
winds will become light and back to the southwest by dawn as the
surface ridge moves from central across eastern Kansas. Some high
cloudiness can be expected on Monday along with gusty south winds
across central Kansas by the afternoon as surface low pressure
deepens in the lee of the Rockies.
