Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
1149 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Wednesday Night)
Issued at 238 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

Tonight-Early Mon Morning:
It`ll be a clear & chilly night as strong high pressure covers the
southern half of the Great Plains. The clear skies & light winds
may enable temps to cool sufficiently to cause patchy frost across
Central KS toward daybreak but the onsetting W-SW winds, albeit
light, should limit coverage.

Mon-Wed Night:
Warmer weather set to return as a rapidly developing trof develops
along the Front Range & forces the afore-mentioned surface high
east across the Appalachians. The onsetting southerly flow, albeit
fairly light by our standards, will team with sunny skies to boost
temperatures into the mid 70s in all areas with Southeast KS on
the cooler end of the spectrum.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 238 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

Thu-Fri Night:
Quiet weather continues for all areas as strong, broad upper ridge
covers nearly all of the CONUS.

Next Weekend:
The next chance for showers should arrive late Fri Night as a deep
upper-deck wave digs as it approaches the Rockies late Fri night &
Sat. Greatest lift would remain well west of KICT Country & as
such would expect only light showers both periods. Thunderstorms
should return to the neighborhood Sat Night as the Western U.S.
upper-deck wave approaches & sends a cold front SE across KS.
It`ll certainly be the next chance for any significant rainfall.

come down some by early evening.
