Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
634 PM CDT SUN SEP 18 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 247 PM CDT Sun Sep 18 2016

Daytime highs will be well above normal for this period with warm
and humid conditions expected. Dry weather will prevail across much
of the region for this period with slight chances of thunderstorms
possible by Wednesday afternoon for central Kansas, as a weak upper
level short wave moves across the central plains. Better chances
should remain north of central Kansas along the frontal boundary
during the day, however we could see a little more activity spread
southward into the area for Wednesday night.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 247 PM CDT Sun Sep 18 2016

The warm and above normal temperatures will continue for
Thursday/Friday along with increasing south wind speeds. Meanwhile
models in good agreement with a pronounced upper level system moving
slowly from the Rockies out into the central plains for Friday night
into the weekend. This will push a stronger cold front into Kansas
which will increase precipitation chances for much of the area along
with cooler more seasonal temperatures.
