.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 335 AM CDT Sat Apr 22 2017

After a seasonably cool start to the day, expect clearing skies,
light winds, and a seasonable airmass to make for a pleasant late
April afternoon.

For today, expect an area of surface high pressure to sink
southward throughout the day, with generally light northerly
winds expected to prevail. In addition, skies should gradually
clear from north to south across the region, with mostly sunny
skies expected for just above mid
afternoon. With these sunny skies and a seasonable airmass in
place, expect a very pleasant afternoon, with high temperatures
climbing into the mid to upper 60s,

For tonight, with mostly clear skies in place along with light
winds, expect another cool evening/overnight period across the
local area. Thanks to relatively elevated dewpoints as well,
expect to see some frost formation across portions of the region
early Sunday morning. While the current forecast temperatures
along with light southerly winds are not conducive to widespread
frost formation, expect at least patchy frost formation across
the region with the best chance for more widespread frost
anticipated across sheltered and low lying areas.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday through Friday)
Issued at 335 AM CDT Sat Apr 22 2017

The forecast discussion detailing the upcoming week will be issued
later this morning.
