Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
257 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Tuesday night)
Issued at 256 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

The rain will taper off across south central Kansas early this
morning and looks to linger over southeast Kansas into the early
afternoon hours. Skies will clear from west to east today as the
upper level system moves eastward into the Mississippi Valley region.
Above normal temperatures will prevail for Kansas this period with
next weather system expected to move into the central plains on
Tuesday. A cold front will surge into Kansas on Tuesday, however
temperatures should warm up rather nicely ahead of this front with
upper 50s and 60s across eastern Kansas. Precipitation chances with
this next weather system still look more favorable north of central
Kansas where better upper level forcing will reside. We could see
some light rain showers Tuesday afternoon possibly changing to a
light wintry precipitation Tuesday night over central Kansas. Not
expecting much to occur from this activity.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Saturday)
Issued at 256 AM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

Dry and quiet weather conditions expected for this period across
Kansas even though we will remain under the influence of long wave
upper level troughing. Moisture will be kept well south of the
region limiting any precipitation chances. Daytime highs will
remain around normal for late January.

.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday night)
Issued at 1126 PM CST Sat Jan 21 2017

An upper low will continue to move east across the southern
Plains overnight with light rain and rain showers within the
upper deformation zone north of the low affecting the southern
Kansas terminals. While deterioration in cigs into the MVFR
category with perhaps a period of MVFR vsbys with rain and fog
is still expected overnight, kept cigs AOA 2K FT except for a
brief period at KCNU. Surface winds will increase from the north
late tonight into midday Sunday as the surface gradient tightens
as low pressure deepens to our southeast. Clearing with VFR
conditions are expected for most of the daylight hours of Sunday
with mainly clear skies Sunday evening.
