Persistent easterly to northeasterly flow and cool advection aloft
will lead to much of the forecast being below normal for this time
of year. Through the weekend, high temperatures look to generally be
in the 60s with some southern zones seeing lower 70 degree values
today. Lows look chilly with temperatures falling into the 40s at
times through the weekend. By next week, southerly flow looks to
return and temperatures will rebound back closer to seasonal values
with highs in the low to mid 70s.

Precipitation chances over the next week look very low and are
mainly confined to next week. But Saturday and Saturday night, there
remains a small chance for showers over eastern Kansas and adjacent
areas of Missouri. These chances have been decreasing over the last
few model runs as the upper low responsible for the chances lingers
over the Intermountain West. The next decent chance for rainfall
will occur late in the forecast. As the upper ridge shifts to the
east, it allows for the western trough to lift into the Plains. Flow
ahead of this trough will have turned southerly with some moisture
advection back into the region. As a result, the chance PoPs the
initialization produces appear reasonable for Tuesday into Wednesday.

Low clouds, following behind a cold front that settled across the
region Tuesday, have finally lifted into the VFR range late this
evening, and are expected to remain VFR as they slowly scatter out
early this morning. Otherwise, look for modest northeast wind to
remain from the northeast and under 10 knots through the day
