Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Dodge City KS
314 PM CST Fri Nov 24 2017

...Updated short and long term sections...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Saturday)
Issued at 313 PM CST Fri Nov 24 2017

A cold front will continue to push south of the area tonight with
high pressure building in from the north. This will lead to north
to northeast winds across the CWA overnight. No precipitation is
expected behind this front with only a slight increase in high
level clouds. The ridge axis of the high will slide across the
area tomorrow leading to light and variable winds. Skies will be
mostly clear due to the atmosphere above western Kansas being
fairly dry. As for temperatures, lows tonight look to range from
around freezing across west central Kansas to around 40 degrees
across south central Kansas. Highs tomorrow are progged to reach
to around 60 degrees.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Friday)
Issued at 313 PM CST Fri Nov 24 2017

An upper level ridge will be in place over the Rockies for the
remainder of the weekend into the early part of next week. The
atmosphere above western Kansas will be fairly dry during this
time frame with mostly clear skies. Models then suggest a weak
disturbance to move across the area Tuesday night into Wednesday
morning. Right now there is a slight chance of precipitation
during this time frame, however, I believe most places will remain
dry with only an increase in cloudiness. The reminder of the long
term looks dry with mostly clear skies. As for temperatures,
highs will be in the lower 70s Sunday then mid 70s Monday.
Temperatures will plummet into the 50s for the remainder of the
long term forecast.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Saturday afternoon)
Issued at 1052 AM CST Fri Nov 24 2017

A cold front will move through the area this afternoon shifting
winds to the north with some gusts above 12 knots. Winds then
shift to the northeast tonight at less than 10 knots. VFR ceilings
are expected throughout the day with an increase in upper level
clouds behind the aforementioned front.
