Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
556 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday night)
Issued at 220 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

Breezy northeast winds will continue to subside as high pressure
builds into the region. Any lingering light showers should
quickly diminish with loss of heating by early evening. Mostly
clear conditions, light winds and much drier air will result in
below normal temperatures tonight with many locations seeing lows
in the 50s. Normal lows for late June are in the upper 60s. Below
normal temperatures will linger into the weekend across the area
with highs in the lower 80s and lows in the 50s/around 60.

The next chance for showers will arrive on Sat & Sun nights as a
series of more subtle shortwave troughs approach in continued
northwest mid/upper flow. Strong or severe storm activity is not
anticipated at this time. Like the previous shift noted, Sunday
night still looks like a better signal for elevated nocturnal
showers and storms. Some of the activity Sunday night may linger
into the morning hours on Monday and maintained some higher pops,
especially across portions of central KS. Lingering clouds &
precipitation will keep highs from reaching normal values for late
June with highs on Mon ranging from the upper 70s to mid 80s for
most locations.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Friday)
Issued at 220 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

Moderating temperatures can be expected as we move through
the week with continued chances for showers and storms. High
temperatures will return to more seasonable values with readings
in the low to mid 90s. The persistent mid/upper ridge over the
southwest is progged to break down with a series of shortwave
troughs bringing continued chances for showers and storms to the
central Conus.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Saturday evening)
Issued at 548 PM CDT Fri Jun 23 2017

Aviation concerns are expected to be minimal through the next 24
hours.

Cold front that swept through early this morning is now situated
down near the Red River. What is left of the isolated showers and
storms are now pushing to near the KS-OK border and should
continue moving south. Cool/dry air will continue moving-in from
the north which will keep VFR conditions in place through this
entire TAF period.
