.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 315 PM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

Overall, a quiet forecast is in store for the short term as we have
high pressure sitting over the Central Plains. Winds will go light
and variable this evening and continue through Tuesday. Temperatures
are close to seasonable today, but should go above normal for this
time of year tomorrow for highs.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Monday)
Issued at 315 PM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

Most noteworthy item in the long term includes the chance for
thunderstorms later in the week, mainly Sunday through Monday. The
upper levels seem to be in reasonble agreement, so there is a little
confidnece even though this is several days out. CAPE is really
limited until Monday, so the thunderstorm chances might be overdone
for Sunday which would ultimately lead to rain showers across the
local area. Assessing the severe threat at this point seems
unreasonable, and confidence is low at this point anyway for severe

Temperatures will be near (to perhaps slightly below) seasonable for
this time of year through the long term. Essentially low to mid 70s
are forecast through Monday.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)
Issued at 1220 PM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

VFR conditions are expected at the terminals throughout the valid
TAF period.

The only noteworthy item will be the winds. A slight shift in
wind direction will occur later this afternoon from west to a more
northwesterly wind, and then wind speeds go light and variable
through the remainder of the TAF.
