...Updated to include Climate section...

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 0304 PM CDT TUE AUG 25 2015

Another beautiful day across the region today by any standards,
let alone late August. High pressure is in control of our weather
regime and persistence (plus a degree or two) will be the rule.
Another night of clear skies and light winds will result in lows a
good 10-15 degrees below average. Sunny skies on Wednesday will
result in highs ranging from around 80 to the mid 80s.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday Night through Tuesday)
Issued at 0304 PM CDT TUE AUG 25 2015

12z suite of model output continues to indicate a gradual moisture
return to the region from Thursday into the weekend. A weak front
will gradually approach from the west on Thursday, with a few
showers/storms possible across far western portions of the outlook
area. This front will gradually work into the area late Friday
into early Saturday and bring a chance for showers and storms to
the region. Deep moisture is lacking, as a result, activity could
end up being more scattered in nature. Temperatures late this
week into the weekend will continue to be at/just below average.
Heading into early next week, a gradual warming trend will
continue with near average temperatures expected.
