.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Monday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

A cool and dry Canadian airmass will continue to infiltrate the
area tonight and Monday as we head into the fall season. A
sprawling surface high pressure system will build southward into
the central U.S. This high will be centered over northwestern
Missouri and northeastern Kansas by Monday morning then shift
eastward into Ohio River Valley. The result will be spectacular
weather conditions with highs Monday generally in the lower 70s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday Night through Sunday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

Dry weather and seasonable temperatures are expected as we head
into this first week of fall. A building upper ridge of high
pressure will be the dominant weather feature.

However we will monitor a weakening upper level trough that will
make its way across the Rockies and into the Plains by mid week.
This feature is expected to stall out and diminish with time.
Scattered showers associated with this system could make it as far
east as eastern Kansas but expect precipitation to remain west of
our area at this time.

Otherwise temperatures will gradually warm but remain within
seasonal levels through the week and into next weekend.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Monday Evening)
Issued at 613 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 hours and beyond.
North winds will remain gusty through sunset, then become light
and shift to the east during the day Monday.
