616 AM CDT Sun Jun 18 2017

Issued at 252 AM CDT SUN JUN 18 2017

A much needed, much quieter day is on tap in the wake of last
evening`s cold front. Trailing post-frontal rain showers will
continue to shift off to the southeast this morning, leaving
behind progressively clearing skies and diminishing low-level
moisture. Sunshine should arrive in time to allow sufficient
diurnal heating during the afternoon, but this surface heating
will battle increasing northwest winds/CAA and only allow highs to
reach the low 80s.

Similar conditions are expected Monday, then the parent trough to
last night`s system will push off into the Northeast, allowing
ridging to build back over the High Plains and surface flow to
return to the southwest on Tuesday. Temperatures will warm
gradually through midweek, and thunderstorm chances will return
Wednesday night through the remainder of the week as several waves
pass across the central CONUS.
