Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
1122 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

...Updated Aviation Discussion...

.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.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Wednesday afternoon)
Issued at 1122 AM CST Tue Nov 21 2017

VFR conditions will persist the next 24 hours. Strong north winds
in wake of a cold front will slacken quite a bit this evening as
high pressure moves south over Mid-America tonight. Winds will
turn south/southwesterly Wednesday around 10-15 kts generally west
of I-135.
