The main concern in the very near term will be the potential for
patchy dense fog this morning. Fortunately, quite a bit of stratus
still resides over the area however, in areas where skies have
cleared fog has developed reduced visibilities as low as 1/4 mile in
some locations. Fog potential will continue through mid-morning
before finally burning off. Skies will be mostly cloudy through the
morning before scattering in the afternoon with generally light
winds. This will limit daytime heat despite an upper level ridge
building into the area today. As such, have dropped highs into the
low to mid 80 range. There will be a slight chance for a few storms
across the extreme southeastern portion of the CWA where a stalled
frontal boundary resides however precipitation should remain south
and east of the area where better instability exists.

The aforementioned upper level ridge that builds into the area today
will then be the main feature of interest through the next week
keeping conditions dry with temperature around 5 degrees above
average. The warm up will begin on Monday with increased warm air
advection helping temps rise into the upper 80s to near 90.
Temperatures will then continue in that range through the week as
there will be very little change in the pattern through the forecast


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday Afternoon)
Issued at 1253 PM CDT SUN AUG 30 2015

Gradual improvement in the stratus and low level visibility expected
over the next couple hours across the area. VFR anticipated through
the afternoon and evening hours. Overnight/early morning fog is also
possible at the terminals, but several mitigating circumstances
prevent the confidence to drop the forecast to IFR. Light surface
winds and a scattered low level cloud deck could remain in place,
which would reduce chances of visibility restrictions early Monday
