The cool and dry trend will continue through the remainder of the
work week as a mid-level ridge situated over the Rockies gradually
builds into the Central Plains. This feature will be blocked by a
deepening upper low over the Great Lakes to the east along with a
developing trough over the Pacific Northwest expected to deepen
through the latter half of the week.

The upper low across the Great Lakes will sink southward tonight,
which will send a secondary surface cold front into northern
Missouri early Wednesday morning. This will decrease overnight lows a
degree or two compared to Tuesday morning for areas north of I-70.
Generally expecting lows in the upper 40s behind the frontal boundary
with lows in the low to mid 50s ahead of the boundary. The front will
continue to push southward through Wednesday morning, with a
noticeable decrease in afternoon highs. Not out of question to see
widespread Wednesday highs not exceed 70 degrees. Wednesday night
lows will also take a dip with widespread upper 40s expected across
the area. Unseasonably cool temperatures will continue until the late
weekend with northerly surface winds remaining firmly in place until
Saturday afternoon.

The aforementioned upper low to the east will linger over the midwest
until Saturday, at which point the upstream system will finally erode
the blocking pattern. Temperatures will rebound to normal through the
late weekend and the next chance of precipitation will then return
early next week.

VFR conditions will continue with the clear sky trend persisting
through the period. Westerly winds will turn northerly tonight as a
deep upper-low over the Great Lakes sinks southward.
