.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 208 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

The weather looks rather mild and nice for the Memorial Day
Holiday. Surface winds will be light with temperatures in the
upper 70s to lower 80s this afternoon and plenty of sunshine. A
few models have been indicating some potential for showers this
afternoon as a weak front moves through the area, however went
with no precipitation in the forecast owing to the expected very
limited and widely scattered nature if rain does occur.

Tonight will also be nice as cooler air filters into the region
behind the weak surface front this afternoon. Temperatures in the
middle 50s are forecast with mostly clear skies overnight.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 208 AM CDT Mon May 29 2017

A persistent upper level storm system in the Great Lakes region
will spin out pieces of energy and swing them through the upper
level northwesterly flow through the week. This will be evident
Tuesday and Thursday as showers and isolated to scattered
thunderstorms will occur along weak frontal boundaries each day.

A bit more substantial system will move across the Ozarks late
Friday and into the weekend. This system will bring a better
chance for organized convection, though indications at this time
show little in the way of severe potential.

Temperatures this week will be more seasonable as well with highs
in the upper 70s to lower 80s each day and overnight lows around
the 60 degree mark.
