.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday)
Issued at 200 PM CDT Tue May 3 2016

An upper level trough axis will move off to the south tonight
while surface high pressure builds southward into the region.
Expect cloud cover to diminish this evening.

Even more sunshine is expected Wednesday in the wake of the
existing trough. Temperatures will be a couple of degrees warmer
but still slightly below seasonable normals.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday Night through Tuesday)
Issued at 200 PM CDT Tue May 3 2016

A gradual warming trend can be expected as we head through late
week. An upper level ridge will expand eastward while southerly
winds return. This will push day time high temperatures to around
80 degrees by Friday and Saturday.

An upper level trough will try to makes it way eastward from the
Rockies into the central U.S. later Sunday into early next week.
This along with a gradual increase in moisture will introduce a
chance for showers and thunderstorms as early as Sunday. However,
a better chance for rainfall will unfold early next week as the
system to our west progresses slowly eastward.
