...00z Aviation Update...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Thursday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Wed Aug 17 2016

The seasonable and tranquil weather conditions will continue
tonight into Thursday before more active weather returns. The
daytime cloudiness will dissipate with sunset but expect at least
patchy fog to develop again late tonight and early Thursday. We
will have to monitor for the potential of locally dense fog across
far southern Missouri.

Expect seasonable temperatures again Thursday. Can`t rule out
isolated showers or storms Thursday afternoon as quality moisture
increases and but most areas will remain dry.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 230 PM CDT Wed Aug 17 2016

More active weather will unfold heading into late week and Saturday.
An upper level trough will swing from the western Canadian provinces
into the central U.S. This will bring a cold font southward into
the region later Friday and across the Ozarks region on Saturday.
An increasing coverage of showers and thunderstorms will develop
Friday but especially Friday night and Saturday. The potential for
severe weather looks to be limited at best Friday night and
Saturday. Activity will diminish from the northwest Saturday
following the frontal passage.

Sunday looks quite pleasant as surface high pressure builds
southward. Highs Sunday will be in the 70s.

A more progressive pattern will evolve next week which will bring
intermittent chances for showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday
into the later next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Thursday evening)
Issued at 636 PM CDT Wed Aug 17 2016

VFR conditions anticipated for a majority of this TAF cycle.
There are signs that morning fog may be a slight issue again for
BBG and SGF early Thursday. The signal isn`t as strong as we`ve
seen over the last couple of didn`t go as low with
visibilities. Regardless, conditions should improve back to VFR
rapidly after sunrise. Otherwise, light winds (less than 10kts)
can be expected.
