1226 PM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 351 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

After a frosty start to the day in most locations...expect
increasing southerly winds and ample sunshine to make for a decent
afternoon across the local area. While southerly breezes will make
it feel a bit cooler than it actually will be...especially across
areas west of highway expect afternoon temperatures to
climb into the 60s for just about everyone.

As the surface ridge continues to transition further east later
today and tonight...expect steady southerly winds to help keep
overnight temperatures somewhat elevated...with most locations
expected to see overnight low temperatures 8-10 degrees above this
mornings readings.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 351 AM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

Southwesterly flow aloft will be in place to start the extended
periods as a trough of low pressure persists across the west
coast with several embedded disturbances forecast to lift north of
the local area. Late in the weekend...expect the main trough to
shift east and emerge into the plains...bringing another cold
front and chance for precipitation to the local area. With minimal
instability to work with...could see an isolated thunderstorms
Saturday afternoon or evening...but widespread or strong
thunderstorms do not appear likely at this time. This front should
drop temperatures back below normal over the upcoming
weekend...however...before heights aloft once again begin to rise
and temperatures return to near or just above normal for at least
the first half of next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z KGRI/KEAR TAFS through 18Z Thursday)
Issued at 1223 PM CDT Wed Oct 11 2017

Quiet weather with VFR conditions are forecast for this TAF.
Winds will remain southerly through the period, gusting this
afternoon to 20-25 MPH. Models continue to show the potential for
LLWS at both sites, so did leave that mention in the TAF.
