Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
639 AM CDT SAT OCT 1 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Monday night)
Issued at 233 AM CDT Sat Oct 1 2016

High clouds have prevented fog development across southeast Kansas
for early this morning and latest satellite imagery keeps the high
clouds in place...therefore fog chances should be limited. The
very pleasant weather conditions will continue for this weekend
across Kansas with near normal highs today and a bit warmer on
Sunday. Meanwhile some weak isentropic lift in the 305-310K layer
could spark off a few showers/storms late Saturday night into
early Sunday morning across central Kansas. Temperatures will
continue to warm heading into Monday along with chances of
thunderstorms for Monday night across central Kansas.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Friday)
Issued at 233 AM CDT Sat Oct 1 2016

Confidence remains high for increasing precipitation chances on
Tuesday-Wednesday as models continue to show a deep upper level
trough moving across the central plains this period...In addition
there is a chance for strong to severe thunderstorms with favorable
wind shear aloft. The main question will be how much instability can
materialize which would boost severe weather potential. Otherwise
cooler drier air should overspread the Heartland for late next
week as a cold front pushes south and east of the area.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Sunday morning)
Issued at 638 AM CDT Sat Oct 1 2016

VFR conditions forecast at all sites throughout period. Proximity
of surface ridge axis will keep winds light and variable for most
locations. Increase in mid level moisture may lead to isolated
rain showers near end of forecast at KRSL/KGBD but odds are too
low to mention. -Howerton
