244 PM CDT Fri Sep 30 2016

.SHORT TERM (Tonight through Saturday Night)...
An increase in mid and high clouds will take place tonight and
Saturday as a weak upper level disturbance moves around the upper
level ridge in place. Otherwise near to slightly below normal
temps through the short term.

&&

.LONG TERM (Sunday through Friday)...
Weak ridging aloft will continue Sunday into Monday while a weak
return southeast flow in the low levels develops. Temps gradually
warm during this time. A return of morning low clouds takes place
Tuesday and Wednesday as low level moisture increases and ridging
breaks down and slides east, leading to increasing low level
flow. A weak shortwave moving across Wednesday could lead to
isolated showers and thunderstorms across the northern and western
CWA. GFS is deeper and slightly slower with the trough over the
Rockies moving east into the plains than the weaker more
progressive ECMWF. As a result the ECMWF is faster with the next
cold front moving through during the day on Thursday while the GFS
indicates a Thursday night passage. Isolated pops currently
forecast ahead of the front along with high temps Tuesday through
Thursday warming into the upper 80s to around 90.
