Start making your outdoor plans for the coming week, cause it`s
going to be a nice one.

The weather story for much of the coming week will be one of
persistence as the broad ridge --currently residing over the
intermountain west-- shifts slowly east through next weekend. This
will keep the influence of a Pacific surface high as the dominate
weather feature across eastern Kansas and Missouri through much of
the work week. As a result expectations are that day to day
temperatures wont differ much unless due to cloud cover from
potential storms. Speaking of storms, still watching the cutoff
circulation spinning its way through the Great Basin under the
western ridge. Models continue to advertise this feature transiting
into the Plains later today as the prevailing westerlies begin to
open the closed circulation into an open wave. This could generate
some stormy activity Tuesday through Thursday as this feature moves
through the Plains. However, much of the focus for this expected
activity will be to our west, so have continued the trend of limiting
POPs to extreme northeast Kansas and far northwest Missouri for
Tuesday and into Wednesday.

Otherwise, expect temperates to range through the 70s most days of
the coming week, though the trend will be for upper 70s to around 80
by the end of the work week.

VFR conditions will prevail at the terminals through the day. Only
issue is the morning steam fog at the KSTJ terminal. Otherwise,
expect light winds turning to the east today as a surface high oozes
