.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 1234 AM CST Fri Dec 9 2016

The main challenge for today is temperatures. Overnight low clouds are
concerning in terms of this mornings lows and the high for this afternoon.
Most of the meso guidance is struggling. The NMMB and RAP seem to at
least have a better clue on the current situation. As a result, will
undercut highs in the north as clouds should be slower to clear. To
the southwest, expect clearing of low clouds earlier and temps should
be warmer. No precipitation is expected today and into tonight.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 1234 AM CST Fri Dec 9 2016

Fairly ho hum weather will continue in the extended. The fb cranks out
low pops in the north on Sunday. This is in association with a fropa.
Moisture is very limited moisture looks limited to the mid levels. There
are additional pops in a week from now, and this may appear to have
a better chance with stronger jet dynamics associated with a synoptic
trof to the west. Of more importance with be a fairly strong high of
1040-hPa coming down the Northern Plains. 850-hPa temperatures are quite
cold, so have better confidence in going back in the meat freezer for
that time period. Otherwise, highs in the extended will be fairly seasonal
with ebb and flow.
