.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 259 AM CDT SUN MAR 29 2015

Clear skies and breezy southeast winds are being observed this
morning across the Missouri Ozarks. A weak frontal trough is
currently located across the central Plains up near central
Nebraska this morning and moving southeastward. This feature will
bring more clouds back in later today and a wind shift. Moisture
will be very limited but can`t rule out an isolated shower or two
this afternoon with the best potential for that across central
Missouri and the eastern Ozarks. Temperatures will be more
seasonable today with highs in the lower to middle 60s. It will
start off breezy today but as the surface trough
approaches...winds will relax somewhat closer to the wind shift.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 259 AM CDT SUN MAR 29 2015

The overall weather pattern will shift early to middle of this
week with some upper level ridging trying to move in from the
west. Southerly winds at the surface will help boost temperatures
up to above average by the middle of the week. High temperatures
will be approaching the middle to upper 70s by Tuesday and
Wednesday. There may be weak upper level feature that moves on by
the area on Tuesday to bring an isolated shower. The better
chances for widespread rain and scattered thunderstorms will be from
late Wednesday through Friday as a slow moving front moves into
the area. Cooler but seasonable temperatures return behind the
front by next weekend.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday Afternoon)
Issued at 1219 PM CDT SUN MAR 29 2015

VFR conditions expected through the forecast period. A weak front
is currently transiting the area bringing with it a wind from
south to southeast to west to northwest. Pressure gradient not as
strong near the front which will allow some of the gustiness to
diminish as well.

Winds will come back around to a southeast direction as high
pressure moves across the area overnight.
