...Cooler Weather on the Way...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Monday)
Issued at 205 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

A cold front will make its way across the Ozarks this evening
ushering a more fall like airmass into the region heading early
this coming week.

Isolated to scattered convection will develop along the front
through late afternoon and early evening as it pushes across
south central Missouri. Additional scattered showers and sprinkles
will occur behind the front in association with the mid level
trough axis and 850 MB front. In general rainfall is looking
rather light and spotty.

A much cooler airmass will advect into the Ozarks and Osage Plains
for Monday as upper level trough digs into the Great Lakes region
and sprawling surface high pressure builds into the Missouri
Valley. High temperatures Monday will generally only reach the
lower 70s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday Night through Sunday)
Issued at 205 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

An extended period of tranquil fall weather is in store for the
remainder of this week and into next weekend. Our region will
remain under the influence of a northwesterly flow aloft through
at least mid week which will keep temperatures near or slightly
below seasonal levels.

An upper level ridge is progged to build back over the region
later this week into next weekend which will result in a warming
trend but continued dry weather.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
Issued at 1214 PM CDT Sun Sep 25 2016

A cold front will move through the area Today therefore scattered
showers and thunderstorms are possible this afternoon into early
evening before transitioning to showers behind the front. Have
included general VCTS and VCSH to cover the rain/storm threat.
Outside of thunderstorms primarily VFR conditions are expected.
Winds will remain out of the northwest behind the front.
