.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 258 PM CDT Thu May 25 2017

Main focus of the forecast will be storms developing over eastern
Colorado moving east into our area this evening. With steep mid-
level lapse rates and increasing moisture in low-levels, it is
becoming more favorable for severe weather, especially
west/southwest CWA. At some point, severe potential will diminish
late this evening, but tough to tell where exactly that would be,
but more likely severe chances should drop off just west/southwest
of tri-cities. The golf balls and 60 mph mentioned in the HWO look
appropriate. Friday has looked dry and trending drier in between

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 258 PM CDT Thu May 25 2017

Ensembles and model consistency indicate that we will likely have
rain late Friday night into Saturday morning. Moist south flow
will increase dewpoints into the 50s. Storms will probably morph
into an MCS by the time of arrival in our area, with enough
instability aloft along with shear to give us another shot at some
severe weather.

Then off and on chances of precip within northwest flow will be in
the forecast for the rest of the extended, but notably, Memorial Day
is trending dry (Monday).

Temperatures continue to look near to below normal for most of the


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 00Z Friday)

There could be a few thunderstorms moving through, or near, the
terminals during the next few hours. Otherwise there should be mid
and high clouds.
