Northwest flow will continue to dominate this week`s weather across
the forecast area, resulting in below normal temperatures and mainly
dry conditions through the foreseeable future. A shortwave trough
will bring showers and storms to portions of southern Kansas, far
southwest Missouri, and much of Oklahoma on Wednesday, but is
expected to remain south of the CWA. Another weak shortwave trough
could brush northern Missouri on Friday night or early Saturday, but
any precipitation associated with it should be light and focused
mainly northeast of the area. High temperatures will be mainly in
the lower to mid 80s through the period, with lows in the upper 50s
to lower 60s.

Most models indicate that the persistent upper low over the Great
Lakes region will translate northeastward and allow ridging to build
eastward across the Plains by next Monday, but the strength of said
ridge may be moderated by another Pacific trough. For now, have
stuck with continued below normal temperatures even through the
beginning of next week.
