Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1116 PM CST Tue Nov 29 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 220 PM CST Tue Nov 29 2016

A cooler airmass will settle into the region tonight and Wednesday
in the wake of a cold front moving across the Ozarks Tuesday

After a mild day, lows tonight will fall to near the freezing
mark. Highs Wednesday will generally remain in the middle to upper
40s which will be slightly below normal for late November.

Will likely see intervals of clouds Wednesday within a cold air
advection pattern associated with a passing upper level trough.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday Night through Tuesday)
Issued at 220 PM CST Tue Nov 29 2016

There are no significant changes in the forecast through the
weekend into early next week. A broad trough will continue over
the Great Lakes Region into the Upper Midwest. The Ozarks Region
will remain in a pseudo westerly flow with surface high pressure
keeping weather seasonably cool and dry.

All models show an upper level low pressure and trough digging
into the southwestern portions of the country by the weekend.
Cloudiness will increase over the area by Saturday. A weak upper
level wave will move across the Midwest Saturday night into Sunday
morning. This will bring the chance for light rain. It may be just
cold enough for a few wet snow flakes to mix in. The best
potential for this would be across Central Missouri and the far
eastern Ozarks. Temperatures will likely stay above freezing and
no accumulations or impacts are expected at this time.

The storm system across the far southwest U.S. will kick out
across the region late Monday into Monday night and bring another
round of light rain to the area. Temperatures will remain
seasonably cool but just warm enough to keep the precip all
liquid. Long range models suggest another stronger storm system to
possibly impact the area the middle of next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Wednesday night)
Issued at 1114 PM CST Tue Nov 29 2016

High pressure continues to build into the area tonight with a
northwest wind across the CWA. VFR conditions are expected through
the period with some mid level clouds possible on Wednesday. Winds
should veer slightly on Wednesday to the west-southwest and will
probably see some gusty winds at the surface by late morning
through the afternoon.
