...Update To Aviation For 18Z TAFS...

Issued at 236 AM CST THU MAR 5 2015

Very cold and dry air mass was moving into the area behind the
Wintry precipitation which affected some of the Ozarks region
yesterday and last night. Early morning readings were in the teens
to low 20s with dew points in the single digits and teens.

Forecast will be focused on temperatures through the period with
little in the way of precipitation expected.


.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 236 AM CST THU MAR 5 2015

Will remain in the freezer today with the Arctic air mass in
place and temperatures will struggle to reach the freezing mark.
The surface ridge will slowly push to the southeast tonight but
areas of the eastern Ozarks will have a light wind and they also
received the most snow with this last system. This will allow
temperatures to probably dip into the single digits there tonight.
Teens to low 20s can be expected to the north and west within the CWA.

.LONG TERM...(Friday through Wednesday)
Issued at 236 AM CST THU MAR 5 2015

Well advertised and much appreciated warm up will begin on Friday
as we warm back into the 40s in most locations. Exception being in
the southeast CWA where they will still be battling the snow cover.

Pattern change will be underway by the weekend and we should see
temperatures rise back into the 50s through early next week and
into the 60s by the middle of next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Friday Afternoon)
Issued at 1107 AM CST THU MAR 5 2015

For the KSGF, KJLN, and KBBG TAFS: High pressure will be over the
region and will result in clear skies and VFR conditions through
Thursday morning.

Northerly winds will occur this afternoon as the high slides south
then will go light this evening as it settles overhead. The high
will then start to slide east overnight resulting in winds
becoming southeasterly early Friday morning, and the winds will
continue to swing over to the south/southwest and become gusty
during the morning hours Friday.
