Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1156 AM CDT SUN AUG 28 2016

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 244 AM CDT Sun Aug 28 2016

There are no big changes in this forecast update. Isolated to
widely scattered showers and thunderstorms will continue in the
forecast this afternoon and evening. High moisture content in the
atmosphere will continue with PW values around 1.8 inches. High-Res
short term models like the HRRR and 4KM WRF show development by
midday through the afternoon across the area. While most areas
will remain dry today, any convection that develops will be
capable of brief heavy downpours and occasional cloud to ground
lightning. No severe weather is expected. High temperatures will
again be typical for this time of year in the middle to upper 80s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 244 AM CDT Sun Aug 28 2016

More of the same can be expected on Monday. Models indicate by
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, there will be a better coverage
of showers and thunderstorms around in the afternoons. A lingering
frontal boundary will be hanging out in the area along with a
couple of weak impulse disturbances interacting with this front.
Will see about a 40 to 50 percent coverage of showers and storms
both days. Again, will not be a wash out but definitely a better
chance of rain by mid week for the Missouri Ozarks. High
temperatures also may be knocked down a few degrees in the lower
to middle 80s with the added cloud cover and rain chances. The
front washes out and precip chances go back down by the end of the


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
Issued at 1154 AM CDT Sun Aug 28 2016

Fairly unstable late this morning and have started to see some
convection developing across southeast KS into southwest and west
central MO. Have gone with some vcts at JLN but have kept out of
the other TAFS for the 18z forecast for now. Should remain in VFR
outside of any convection until around daybreak when some mvfr fog
may develop.
