.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday night)
Issued at 250 AM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

Rain chances will gradually diminish from northwest to southeast
today as the front progresses through the region. A transient area
of fog has developed ahead of the fropa which should translate
rapidly ESE through the morning hours. Cooler and drier air will
follow in the wake of the front for Monday and Tuesday.
Temperatures are expected to remain below normal through the
period with highs in the 70s and lows in the 40s and 50s.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 250 AM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

A mid/upper ridge is progged to translate eastward across the
central Conus allowing dry weather and mostly clear conditions to
prevail across the forecast area Wed-Thu. Temperatures will slowly
moderate through the period with seasonable temperatures for most
locations. Highs will rise to around 80 while lows fall into the
mid/upper 50s. A progressive shortwave trough is progged to eject
out of the Rockies across the Plains late in the week bringing low
probabilities for precipitation to the area late in the week.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
Issued at 1211 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

The cold front is clearing the far southeastern corner of Kansas
as of midday. A corridor of rain showers, scattered to numerous
in coverage, will affect southeast Kansas through late afternoon
while shifting eastward. This convection is associated with the
850-700 mb frontal zone which will slowly shift southeastward into
this evening. Transient MVFR ceilings will be associated with
these showers at the CNU terminal this afternoon. Otherwise,
north-northwesterly winds gusting to 20-26 knots can be expected
behind the front this afternoon, then diminishing toward early
evening, as surface high pressure builds into the Central Plains.
Post-frontal mid-high level cloudiness should clear the southeast
part of Kansas overnight with VFR and clear skies prevailing into
Monday morning.
