.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 1228 PM CST Wed Nov 30 2016

Quiet weather is expected during the short term period. Winds will
be fairly light during the overnight period, so temperatures should
be able to radiate down to the lower teens northwest to lower 20s southeast.
Pops will remain at zero percent. For tomorrow, it should be a fairly
nice day with light winds and highs peaking in the upper 40s to lower
50s. No precipitation is expected to close out the rest of the short
term domain.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday night through Wednesday)
Issued at 1228 PM CST Wed Nov 30 2016

Main focus is on Friday evening to Saturday. A 500-hPa trof will move
well to the southwest of the forecast district. Weak warm air advection
may allow for a few showers and/or snow showers. With the synoptic disturbance
well to the southwest and eventually south and southeast, doesn`t look
like a high impact event at all. Will see slightly cooler temperatures
it its wake. Moderating temperatures and weak low level warm air advection
is expected for the beginning of the upcoming business week. Another
stronger front may work it by mid week next week. The fb pops and temps
look fine for now given the uncertainty.
