National Weather Service Springfield MO
1202 AM CDT Sun Oct 23 2016

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Tuesday afternoon)

Incredible conditions were observed over extreme southeast Kansas
and the Missouri Ozarks. Temperatures were in the 70s, under sunny
skies and light southerly breezes.

High pressure aloft was building over the nation`s midsection,
which will result in fair weather through Tuesday afternoon.

Look for highs in the 70s both Sunday and Monday. No precipitation
is expected through Tuesday afternoon.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)

An upper level disturbance and associated Pacific cold front will
approach the region late Tuesday night. This system will bring a
round of showers and thunderstorms to most locations across the
region. Measurable precipitation should be widespread in nature.

This activity should exit the area by Thursday. No severe weather
is expected with this system. Moisture return is thin in nature,
and not enough instability develops across southern Missouri for
organized storms.

Another warming trend is expected Thursday into next weekend, as
another upper level ridge approaches from the west.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday night)
Issued at 1153 PM CDT Sat Oct 22 2016

Low level wind shear conditions will persist into early Sunday
morning as a low level jet stream strengthens over the region.

Otherwise, VFR conditions can be expected through Sunday evening
with winds increasing out of the south to southwest on Sunday.
