.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday Night)
Issued at 234 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

The surface front has cleared the area and clouds have continued
to decrease through the day. A large upper level storm system
remains over the northern Great Lakes region.

Tonight and Monday should be mild with lows in the mid 50s and
highs on Monday slightly warmer with highs in the low 80s. As an
upper level wave rotates around the upper low...a weak surface
front will transit the area late in the day on Monday. Could see
an isolated afternoon or evening shower or thunderstorm along the
Highway 54 corridor.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 234 PM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Toward mid upper level ridge will continue to build over
the Rocky Mountain states. As it will cause the Great
Lakes low to lift out to the northeast. This will keep the area
within northwest flow through most of the week which will allow
several weak impulses to traverse the area. Best chances for
scattered showers and thunderstorms will be Tuesday night and
again on Thursday.

By late upper level trough moves out of the desert
southwest and brings another chance for more organized system
from Friday into the weekend. The system should move out of the
Southern Plains on Friday and bring showers and thunderstorms to
the region through the overnight hours on Saturday into Sunday.

Temperatures through the period should be slightly above normal
with highs in the 70s and 80s and lows in the 50s and 60s.
