Northeast surface winds and diminishing temperatures aloft will
continue through the remainder of the week and into the weekend,
spelling below normal and slowly decreasing temperatures through
Saturday. Raw NAM temperatures drop into the 30s and have impacted
blended/consensus model solutions, so have actually trended a degree
or two warmer than the superblend despite the pattern. Aloft, the
central and eastern Plains will stay firmly in between deep low
pressure rising up the eastern seaboard and slow-moving, semi-
persistent troughing west of the Rockies until the weekend, keeping
precipitation chances nil.

A lobe of low pressure will eventually eject out of the western
trough and into the Plains over the weekend, bringing a potential
for scattered showers Saturday evening. However, this shortwave
trough will lift northward as it reaches the western edge of the
forecast area, and better chances of rain will hold off until the
main, deeper trough pushes out into the Plains near the end of the
forecast period.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Wednesday Evening)
Issued at 603 PM CDT TUE SEP 29 2015

MVFR cloud cover will hang a little bit past 00Z this evening, but
should settled to the south, and/or dissipate, later this evening.
This will leave behind VFR conditions for the rest of this TAF cycle
as cool dry fall air filters south across the terminals. Expect
surface winds to remain from the northeast and under 10 knots
through the period.
