Issued at 252 AM CDT SUN JUN 18 2017

A much needed, much quieter day is on tap in the wake of last
evening`s cold front. Trailing post-frontal rain showers will
continue to shift off to the southeast this morning, leaving
behind progressively clearing skies and diminishing low-level
moisture. Sunshine should arrive in time to allow sufficient
diurnal heating during the afternoon, but this surface heating
will battle increasing northwest winds/CAA and only allow highs to
reach the low 80s.

Similar conditions are expected Monday, then the parent trough to
last night`s system will push off into the Northeast, allowing
ridging to build back over the High Plains and surface flow to
return to the southwest on Tuesday. Temperatures will warm
gradually through midweek, and thunderstorm chances will return
Wednesday night through the remainder of the week as several waves
pass across the central CONUS.

A few scattered showers may drift in and out of all TAF sites over
the next few hours, then should gradually push south of the area
by sunrise. Ceilings will remain VFR, and will progressively
scatter out during the morning. Winds will briefly increase out of
the north northwest over the next 1-2 hours, then will become
lighter and a bit variable in direction until after sunrise
