.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 319 PM CDT Sun Oct 23 2016

A little thin cirrus continues to move across the forecast area this
afternoon. A surface high pressure system is building into the area.

Even with the surface high building into the area this afternoon,
the winds continue to be a little breezy from the north. Once the
sun goes down this evening the winds will diminish. The surface high
builds to the north of the forecast area and pushes off to the east
during the night. Winds should remain fairly light through the night
and into the morning hours, before they turn to the south and
increase some during the afternoon. With the light winds, lows
tonight will dip into the 30s. Temperatures will remain on the
cooler side Monday.

moisture that there could be a little fog late Monday night into
Tuesday morning.

On Tuesday, an upper level wave will move into the area as well as a
cold front. Expect some thunderstorms to develop along the front,
mainly during the afternoon and evening hours. The exact location of
the front is still a bit of a question, but the thunderstorms should
be mostly in the eastern part of the forecast area. By late night,
the thunderstorms should be moving out of the area.

the area. The sunshine will help to keep temperatures above normal.
After the high moves to the east there will be warm advection and
south winds and temperatures will get back into the 70s and lower
80s for Thursday and Friday. Another cold front moves through the
area late Friday and Friday night with temperatures cooling back off
again Saturday and Sunday. There is an upper level wave that moves
