.LONG TERM:  (Tonight through Sunday)
Issued at 223 AM CDT Mon Sep 29 2014

Western CONUS longwave trof will move east into the Midwest by
midweek with a good chance of rain in the offing for the entire
CWA begining as early as Wednesday afternoon across central
Missouri and exiting southern Illinois by early Friday morning.

Model guidance in pretty good agreement that best chances of
precipitation will be Wednesday night through Thursday night. A
strengthening low level jet will transport quality moisture into
the region Wednesday night and precipitation should become
widespread across the northwestern half of the CWA where a series
of weak disturbances will eject northeast out of the base of the
longwave trof. By Thursday the cold front will be knocking on our
doorstep and this, along with the main trof axis will contribute
to additional showers and thunderstorms through early Friday
morning.

Cooler air expected in the wake of the front, with below normal
temperatures forecast for Friday and Saturday, before returning to
normal on Sunday.
