Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1146 PM CST Mon Dec 4 2017


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

Storms have moved east of the Ozarks, therefore, we have removed
precipitation chances from the forecast. Cold and dry weather is
expected for the next several days.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday Night through Monday)
Issued at 237 PM CST Mon Dec 4 2017

The Wednesday through Saturday time frame will see below normal
temperatures as a large trough over the eastern Conus allows colder
air to drop southward into southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks.
Both the GFS and ECMWF shows a re-enforcing shot of cold air towards
the end of end of the week as a shortwave drops south through the
flow, which could bring a little light snow/flurries or sprinkles to
those areas, depending on timing. Medium range models have offered
different tracks with these model differences leading to low

As we head into the latter part of the weekend and into early next
week, the west coast ridge nudges eastward. Although northwest flow
will continue over the area, rising heights will lead to a slight
warming trend with dry weather expected.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night)

Pilots flying in and out of the southwest Missouri airports can
expect VFR conditions over the next 24 hours. However, some wind
gusts will occur tonight as northwest winds brings a cold airmass
into the region.

No low ceilings or obstructions to visibilities are expected at
this time.

Safe Travels.
