.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 255 AM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017

A quiet and pleasant autumn day is in store for southeast Kansas and
the Missouri Ozarks today. Surface high pressure will be overhead
resulting in light winds, sunny skies and pleasantly cool
temperatures, with afternoon highs in the mid 60s which is just
slightly below the seasonal normals.

The high will begin to slide east of the area tonight. The coldest
temperatures will be across the eastern Ozarks, where lows will
touch the upper 30s to around 40, while further west, southerly
winds will keep lows from dropping much past the middle 40s.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 255 AM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017

Northwest upper flow initially will become zonal by midweek and then
to a building ridge over the lower Mississippi Valley by the end of
Friday. This will set up an extended warming trend, with little
in the way of precipitation for the week. The next chance for
precipitation will not come until next weekend when troughing
across the western conus finally begins to move eastward pushing a
cold into the region late Saturday. This will set the stage for
rain chances from Saturday night into Monday.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 1132 PM CDT Sun Oct 15 2017

VFR conditions expected through the period as high pressure moves
into the area and very dry air remains in place across the region.
Winds will remain light and variable overnight to a slight
northerly wind on Monday before becoming light and variable again
Monday evening.
