...Seasonably Cool and Mostly Dry Next Several Days...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 2 AM CST WED JAN 21 2015

Areas of fog had developed across far southwestern Missouri and
southeastern Kansas overnight. Expect this fog some which will be
dense to impact areas generally along and south of Highway 60
through sunrise. A Dense Fog Advisory remains in effect until 6 AM
for far southwestern Missouri and extreme southeastern Kansas.
Will monitor fog trends for possible expansion.

Otherwise seasonably cool temperatures albeit slightly above normal
are in store today as a broad area of surface high pressure
expands across the region.

An upper level trough will dig into the southern Rockies and
southern High Plains today and tonight where a winter storm will
take shape. High clouds associated with this system will begin to
stream into the region today and tonight.

Cloud cover will inhibit maximum cooling potential tonight especially
across far southern Missouri.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Tuesday)
Issued at 2 AM CST WED JAN 21 2015

The storm system will track from the southern Rockies into the gulf
coast states Thursday and Friday. Precipitation associated with
this system is expected to remain to the south of the area.
However a veil of high clouds will impact the region. Temperatures
will remain seasonably cool.

A northwesterly flow aloft will become established as we head into
the weekend and early next week. A clipper system will slide
southeastward through this flow from the northern Plains toward
the Ohio River Valley late this weekend.

As this system tracks southeastward, some light precipitation
perhaps in the form of a rain/snow mix could develop as far south
as central Missouri into the eastern Ozarks Saturday night into
Sunday. However any precipitation will be light and little if any
impact is expected this far south.

Otherwise the cool and relatively quiet weather will continue into
early next week.
