Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
1213 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Sunday night)
Issued at 227 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

A surface cold front was sinking southward across Kansas during the
predawn hours. The front will continue to push further south with
cooler/drier air overspreading the region as northwest flow aloft
provides a decent push on the frontal boundary. A few lingering
showers and storms will be possible mainly for this morning but not
expecting strong or severe weather. Below normal daytime highs will
continue through the weekend, as surface high pressure remains over
the central plains and northwest flow sharpens. Models show a couple
weak upper level waves traveling through the northwest flow that
could generate some showers/storms over central Kansas for both
Saturday and Sunday night. The signal is a little stronger on Sunday
night with better warm air advection in the mid-levels.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Thursday)
Issued at 227 AM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

Temperatures will gradually warm this period as southerly winds
increase for Tuesday-Thursday. The better chances of rain will
arrive for Tuesday and Wednesday nights, as the upper level flow
becomes more zonal and upper level waves travel west to east across
the Heartland.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Saturday afternoon)
Issued at 1208 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

A weak, post-frontal pv anomaly will continue to move eastward
across central and eastern Kansas this afternoon. This will
support a few smaller clusters of showers/thunderstorms as it
passes through the region, with mid-level cloudiness. Northerly
winds gusting at times to 25-30 knots behind the cold front, will
diminish early this evening. Otherwise, expecting VFR to be
prevalent.
