AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPRINGFIELD MO
1145 PM CST Mon Nov 24 2014

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Tonight)
Issued at 234 PM CST MON NOV 24 2014

A weakening frontal boundary nearing the plateau will lose its
identity as the storm system that passed through the region last
night moves off into the Great Lakes and weak high pressure descends
into the Ozarks. At the same time the H5 trough will swing through
the region.  Clouds as a result will exit southwest to northeast
this evening. With upstream dew points in the middle teens to around
20 the degree by which surface winds weaken will be the main focus
in the short term. At this point anticipate readings to range about
10 degrees colder than last night.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Monday)
Issued at 234 PM CST MON NOV 24 2014

A northwest flow will continue over the region through the middle
of this week which will bring seasonably cool and dry weather to
the area. A clipper like system and moisture starved will move
across the northern half of Missouri into the Ohio River Valley
region. There will be a limited potential for a small and quick
moving band of light snow to move across portions of central
Missouri into the eastern Ozarks. This will occur late Tuesday
night into early Wednesday morning. Very little to no accumulation
is expected at this time. The best potential for a light dusting
of light snow will be near the Lake of the Ozarks region and
northward.

Below average temperatures and dry weather is in the forecast for
Thanksgiving with mostly sunny skies. The weather pattern begins
to flatten out and become more zonal for the end of the week and
weekend. Temperatures will become seasonable and even slightly
above average by the weekend with mild southerly winds. Saturday
looks very nice with highs in the lower 60s. Another front will
try to move into the area by late Sunday into Monday with bring
additional clouds...a few showers...and cooler weather.
