.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 0217 AM CST MON NOV 30 2015

We are starting off once again this morning with low
ceilings, areas of drizzle, and some fog. The fog is most
noticeable from local observations and webcams across southeast
Kansas into southwest Missouri from near Pittsburg, Kansas to the
Branson area. Some patchy dense fog have been reported but not
widespread enough for an advisory.

The main storm system that has been over the western U.S. over the
past few days is finally lifting out across the Central Plains
into the Upper Midwest today. Rain chances will be greatest across
the area this morning with a gradual tapering off from west to
east by the afternoon. Rainfall amounts will remain light on the
order of a few one hundredths up to a tenth of an inch possible.
Temperatures will not warm much today because of clouds and rain
with highs in the upper 40s to around 50. Skies will begin to
clear somewhat tonight as drier air and westerly winds move in.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 0217 AM CST MON NOV 30 2015

The sun will be back on Tuesday and temperatures will be more
seasonable. A drier and more quiet weather pattern returns for the
rest of the week. A weak and dry front will move through the area
Wednesday with just a few more clouds and slightly cooler
weather. High pressure will be in control of our weather pattern
for the end of the week into the weekend with a gradual warming
trend towards the weekend. Highs will be back in the middle to
upper 50s and mostly sunny skies for the end of the week and next


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday Afternoon)
Issued at 1151 AM CST MON NOV 30 2015

Stratus will continue to linger across the region for at least
another 12 or so hours before some improvement is noted late
tonight into Tuesday. LIFR/IFR conditions will persist today with
pockets of drizzle here and there. Drizzle/light rain will exit
this evening and a gradual increase in ceilings to IFR and MVFR is
expected. At this time, clearing can be expected overnight
persisting at least into Tuesday morning.
