Cutoff low currently hanging out over central Missouri will
continue to slowly meander northeastward overnight, not getting
too much of a push out of here until the next low pressure system
approaches tomorrow night. Consequently, it`ll be dry for much of
tomorrow but rain chances return tomorrow night with the
aforementioned second system. This second system, although will
help to push this first one along, doesn`t appear to be as robust
with models essentially having the upper portion of the low
transitioning into an open wave as it crosses southern/central
Missouri Monday night. The area will then see a bit of a dry
period before the next disturbance approaches from the
central/southern Plains. Similar to what the region is seeing now
with one low chasing after another, the models are depicting a
similar solution for the end of next week into the weekend. There
are of course broad differences in the solutions that far out but
believe it`s safe to say we`ll be entering into another unsettled
period for the latter half of the week, bringing much needed rain.

Temperatures over the upcoming week look to remain fairly
moderate, due in large part to the overall pattern influencing the
region, averaging near to slightly above normal for late March.

Low ceilings have been dominating at the four terminals today as a
low pressure system lingers in the region. While some dry air has
been trying to work its way into the area, stratus deck won`t be
going anywhere today through tonight, with low ceilings
persisting throughout much of the TAF period. By tomorrow, look
for light winds to become more westerly as the low moves off
toward the NE.
