AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE WICHITA KS
610 PM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

...UPDATED FOR 00Z AVIATION DISCUSSION...

.SYNOPSIS...
ISSUED AT 213 PM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

HIGH PRESSURE DOMINATES THE SURFACE PATTERN OVER EASTERN KANSAS
TODAY. SKIES ARE CLEAR AND THE WINDS HAVE REMAINED LIGHT. TEMPERATURES
ARE BELOW NORMAL...WITH HIGHS EXPECTED IN THE LOW 80S. UPPER 70S
AND SOME LOW 80S HAVE ALREADY BEEN REACHED...SO THINK THIS IS
RIGHT ON TARGET.

.SHORT TERM...(THIS EVENING THROUGH THURSDAY)
ISSUED AT 213 PM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

THE MAIN CONCERN IN THE SHORT TERM IS CHANCES FOR PRECIPITATION
WITH THE NEXT COLD FRONT THAT WILL BEGIN TO MOVE THROUGH THE
REGION ON THURSDAY/THURSDAY NIGHT.

AHEAD OF THIS NEXT COLD FRONT TEMPERATURES WILL SLOWLY WARM BACK
TO THE UPPER 80S/LOW 90S WHICH IS NORMAL FOR LATE AUGUST. SKIES
WILL REMAIN MOSTLY CLEAR AND SOUTHERLY FLOW WILL INCREASE THROUGH
THE WEEK AS THE LEE TROUGH DEEPENS. BY EARLY THURSDAY...SOME
PRECIPITATION MAY DEVELOP OVER EAST TO NORTHEAST KANSAS IN THE
WARM SECTOR AS SOME ENERGY AHEAD OF THE MAIN WAVE MOVES ACROSS
THE REGION.

THE MAIN UPPER TROUGH WILL APPROACH ON THURSDAY...WHICH WILL GET
THE FRONT MOVING ON ITS SOUTHEASTWARD TREK. THE MAIN PRECIPITATION
WITH THIS FRONT IS EXPECTED TO BE ALONG THE FRONT AS IT MOVES
THROUGH LATE THURSDAY. THERE IS ENOUGH SHEAR AND INSTABILITY THAT
SOME OF THESE STORMS COULD BE STRONG TO MARGINALLY SEVERE.

BILLINGS WRIGHT

.LONG TERM...(FRIDAY THROUGH MONDAY)
ISSUED AT 213 PM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

THE COLD FRONT WILL CONTINUE TO MAKE ITS WAY SOUTHEASTWARD ACROSS
THE PLAINS ON FRIDAY...BUT SLOW DOWN. KEEPING SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS POTENTIALLY LINGERING ACROSS EASTERN AND
SOUTHEASTERN KANSAS FRIDAY.

BY SATURDAY THE CENTRAL PLAINS WILL BE IN THE WAKE OF THE UPPER
SYSTEM...AND SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE THEN WEAK UPPER RIDGING SHOULD
DOMINATE. THE WEEKEND AND EARLY NEXT WEEK SHOULD BE DRY WITH NEAR
TO SLIGHTLY BELOW NORMAL HIGH TEMPERATURES...TOPPING OUT IN THE
80S.

.AVIATION...(FOR THE 00Z TAFS THROUGH 00Z TUESDAY EVENING)
ISSUED AT 607 PM CDT MON AUG 24 2015

VFR CONDITIONS WILL PREVAIL FOR ALL TAF SITES ACROSS CENTRAL AND
SOUTHERN KANSAS DURING THE NEXT 24HRS...AS SURFACE HIGH PRESSURE
SLIDES VERY SLOWLY EASTWARD ACROSS THE REGION WITH LIGHT SOUTHERLY
WINDS.
