Area Forecast Discussion...UPDATED
National Weather Service SPRINGFIELD MO
1128 AM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

Issued at 1128 AM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

Yet another cloudy, dreary, damp and chilly day underway across
the region. Those traveling through the area can expect to see
more of the same through tonight. While rain will not be heavy, it
will be persistent, with pockets of heavier drizzle and fog
reducing visibility from time to time (especially along and
southeast of the Ozark Plateau).

Temperatures today will struggle to "warm" into the upper 30s to
low 40s. Perhaps a degree or two warmer toward the MO/ARK state

Fog will be a renewed concern after sunset. Will continue to
monitor for the need of a dense fog advisory.


.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 0209 AM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

Fog and low cloud ceilings have developed overnight and this
morning with the lowest visibilities on top of the Ozark Plateau.
Visibilities at the higher elevations are near a quarter of a
mile to half a mile at times. We will continue to monitor trends
and local traffic cams to see if a Fog Advisory may be needed this
morning. Areas of drizzle will also continue this morning and
through out much of the day.

Regional radars are showing a band of light rain trying to move
out of Oklahoma into southern Missouri. Today will be another cold
and damp day with off and on drizzle and occasional light showers.
Rainfall amounts will be very light with a few hundredths
possible. Temperatures today and tonight will not move much. Highs
today will stay in the upper 30s to lower 40s as well as tonight`s

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 0209 AM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

Will continue to keep rain chances and cloudy skies through Monday
with this southwest flow aloft over the area. Additional total
rainfall from Sunday morning through Monday will be around a couple
tenths of an inch possible. The large upper level low pressure
system currently over the western U.S. will start lifting out across
the Central Plains on Monday.

Drier weather returns for Tuesday and breezy southwest winds. The
drier and seasonable weather pattern will continue for the middle
and end of next week with high pressure around. High temperatures
will be in the 50s and overnight lows in the 20s and 30s.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday Afternoon)
Issued at 1128 AM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

No major changes to the going forecast. A prolonged period of LIFR
(and potentially lower) conditions is expected for the next 24
hours. Drizzle and light rain will expand across the area this
afternoon, and most locations should expect IFR
ceilings/visibility. LIFR will likely persist at BBG for the
duration of the forecast. Will be monitoring for a more widespread
brand of fog heading into tonight at all locations.
