Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
554 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Thursday night)
Issued at 224 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

Tranquil conditions will prevail through the upcoming week with
minimal weather concerns anticipated.

A cold front will usher in more seasonable air across the area today
with highs in the 50s. Much drier air will advect south across the
area tonight and as the surface ridge arrives, low temperatures
should radiate efficiently. Minimum temperatures were lowered with
many locations falling into the teens across central and perhaps
south central KS.

Wed-Thu...Temperatures will begin to moderate across central KS on
Wed while much of eastern KS struggles to mix out with highs
remaining in the 40s. Warmer air will overspread the region on
Thanksgiving day with highs rising into the 60s/around 70 in some
locations.

.LONG TERM...(Friday through Monday)
Issued at 224 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

The large scale pattern will feature a trough across the Great
Lakes area and a mid/upper ridge across the southwest states. This
will result in northwest mid/upper flow prevailing across the
central plains states through much of the period. Near record high
temperatures may be possible at the start of the period with
highs in the lower 70s anticipated on Fri. Another cold front will
usher in more seasonable air for the weekend while dry weather
and moderating temperatures can be expected as we move into early
next week.
