.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)
Issued at 200 PM CST SAT NOV 28 2015

Conditions will remain glum as waves of light precip continue to
ride northeast with disturbances moving through the region.
Additional rainfall will be light and should not seriously impact
ongoing residual flooding from the recent heavy rain. Will
continue to have fairly high rain chances through this period with
little movement in temperatures.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 200 PM CST SAT NOV 28 2015

An upper level low over the western CONUS will pinwheel it`s way
east into Midwest by late Monday night. This will finally push a
cold front through Mon night. Sunday night/Mon will see some low
level warm advection ahead of the approaching front, but cloud
will limit the diurnal warm up Mon with highs in the 40s.

A colder air mass will spread into the area Tue as a deepening
sfc low over the Midwest pulls away and sfc high pressure begins
to shift east into our area. It will be breezy with a west wind
Tue, but we should see some sunshine. 850mb temperatures will be
colder, near 0 deg C give or take a couple of degrees north to
south. This will support highs mostly in the 40s, maybe touching
near 50 deg F along the MO/AR line.

Sfc high pressure will continue to approach, then pass through
or just to the south Thu. South-se sfc winds and a ridge aloft
will provide a modest warming trend late in the week but the air
mass will remain dry. Looks like a quiet end to the week
