.PREV DISCUSSION... /ISSUED 828 PM CDT Sun Apr 30 2017/
Other than adjusting current T/Td trends to match ongoing
conditions...no changes were made to the short term forecast
(through Tuesday morning). Near vertically-stacked mid to upper
level low churning across eastern KS and OK this evening with
surface high pressure centered just off our coastline...weakening
inland northerly breezes through the remainder of the night. Clear
skies and calm winds within a relatively dry air mass (upper 30
to lower 40 interior dew points) should equate to northern county
lower 50 to middle-upper 50 mid to southern CWA minimum
temperatures to begin the new work week. Surface high moving east
of the region through the morning will have onshore flow/low level
moisture returning by tomorrow afternoon. Maybe an outside lunch
date tomorrow afternoon under pristine sunny skies and slightly
above normal warmth in the lower to middle 80s.
Precipitation/storm chances increase at mid week in association
with the next system`s Wednesday-early Thursday approach and
passage. 31
