...UPDATED FOR 06Z AVIATION DISCUSSION...

.SHORT TERM...(THIS EVENING THROUGH WEDNESDAY)
ISSUED AT 249 PM CDT SUN JUL 27 2014

CONFIDENCE REMAINS HIGH THAT BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES FOR LATE
JULY WILL BE IN STORE FOR KANSAS THIS UPCOMING WEEK...AS SURFACE
HIGH PRESSURE AND NORTHERLY WINDS USHER IN COOLER DRIER AIR.
MEANWHILE CURRENT SATELLITE WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A UPPER
LEVEL WAVE JUST OFF THE COAST OF OREGON. THIS WAVE WILL RIDE OVER
TOP THE UPPER RIDGE AND THEN DIVE SOUTHEAST ACROSS THE MISSISSIPPI
VALLEY REGION ON TUESDAY NIGHT. MOISTURE TRANSPORT WILL INCREASE
OVER WESTERN KANSAS WITH NUMEROUS SHOWERS/STORMS DEVELOPING
TUESDAY/TUESDAY NIGHT. SOME OF THIS ACTIVITY WILL SLOWLY SPREAD
EASTWARD INTO CENTRAL KANSAS LATE TUESDAY NIGHT. DAYTIME TEMPERATURES
COULD BE EVEN COOLER ON WEDNESDAY WITH LINGERING

COOLER THAN NORMAL TEMPERATURES WILL CONTINUE FOR THIS PERIOD...AS
THE UPPER LEVEL PATTERN SHOWS VERY LITTLE CHANGE WITH DEEP TROUGH
AXIS REMAINING OVER THE EASTERN HALF OF THE COUNTRY. SURFACE HIGH
PRESSURE WILL KEEP WINDS ON THE LIGHTER SIDE AS WELL MAKING FOR SOME
PLEASANT WEATHER DAYS. WE COULD SEE SOME DIURNALLY DRIVEN
THUNDERSTORMS FOR SATURDAY AFTERNOON AS COOL TEMPERATURES ALOFT WILL
PROVIDE MINIMAL CAPPING.
