.SYNOPSIS...
Issued at 301 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

Upper level ridging will slowly develop over the plains Tuesday
and then persist through Friday. Surface high pressure will build
into the plains tonight and then gradually erode by Tuesday. An
upper level trough over the northern plains will progress into the
Midwest by Monday and then close off over the eastern part of the
country by late week. In response to the eastern United States
troughing, a backdoor cold front is expected to pass through
western Kansas by late Wednesday. Upper level troughing will
develop over the western United States by late next weekend.
A southern stream upper level system may approach the southern or
central high plains by Saturday or Sunday.
