...updated aviation...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 302 PM CST Wed Dec 7 2016

Surface high pressure will settle into western Kansas late tonight
and Thursday in the wake of an upper level trough. Temperatures
should fall into the single digits in west central Kansas to
around 12 in south central Kansas. Wind chill values will be from
-5 to -12 toward morning in western Kansas. With arctic high
pressure in place, temperatures aren`t expected to get out of the
20s on Thursday.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 302 PM CST Wed Dec 7 2016

After a very chilly morning on Friday, a slow warming trend will
commence. Highs will rise into the 40s to lower 50s by Saturday.
The next upper level system is expected to move across the plains
by Sunday. There is only a small chance of rain with this system
and possibly some light snow before precipitation ends. But if
the system is even faster moving then no precipitation would
occur.

A very cold upper level trough is expected to move into the
northern plains by Tuesday and into southeastern Canada by
Wednesday. Western Kansas will be on the western end of the
associated arctic high pressure system so that the cold shot
should be short lived. Highs will mainly be in the 20s on
Wednesday before moderating later in the week. Chances of
significant precipitation look very low through December 17th.
