The CONUS is locked in a blocking pattern with UL ridging
dominating over CA and into the Intermountain West, and troughing
over the Great Lakes and into the East Coast. This leaves the
local area caught in the middle and largely under UL NW flow. With
no decent moisture source to pull from, the area will remain dry
for at least the next several days, with only a glimmer of hope of
precipitation glancing past in the middle of next week across NE
MO. Otherwise, the forecast is primarily a temperature one as they
fluctuate under passing shortwaves traversing along the periphery
of the aforementioned overarching trough. A gradient will setup
across the forecast area tomorrow, with highs struggling to
exceed the freezing mark in NE MO and low 40s dominating to the
south and west of the KC area. We`ll see a modest warmup over the
weekend, with temps returning closer to normal for this time of
year on Tuesday.

VFR conditions at the terminals may give way to some MVFR CIGs
early this evening and then again early Saturday morning as clouds
in the prevailing northwest flow shift across the region.
Otherwise, expect surface winds to start to come up in speed from
the northwest a bit overnight into Saturday morning.
