AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION

Issued at 236 PM CST SAT NOV 18 2017

Blustery northwest winds prevailing over the region this
afternoon following the passage of this morning`s strong cold
front. Area radars now showing that all precipitation associated
with this open wave has largely exited off to the east, with
visible satellite trends showing widespread clearing working in
from the west. Gusts 30-35 mph will remain possible this afternoon
before winds begin to weaken later this evening. As we head into
the overnight, expect a chilly night with overnight lows dropping
down into the upper 20s to lower 30s across much of the area.

From a sensible weather standpoint, the upcoming week looks
nothing less than boring as high pressure dominates the weather
pattern across the Central U.S. The only caveat may be Monday
afternoon when gusty southwest winds return to the area and
combine with low relative humidity levels, possibly resulting in a
minor fire weather concern. But aside from that, not much on the
horizon with the next chance for precip likely holding off until
next weekend. Monday looks to be the warmest day of the week with
daytime highs possibly reaching the lower 60s before a dry cold
front brings cooler air to the region beginning Tuesday.
