.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Friday)
Issued at 111 PM CST Thu Dec 1 2016

Quiet weather is expected during the short term period. Winds will continue
to remain light and variable this afternoon. For tomorrow, winds will
eventually become out of the east, but still fairly light in magnitude.
A few high clouds will drift by, otherwise a dry forecast is expected
tonight into tomorrow morning. Lows will range from the teens northwest
to the 20s southeast. Highs tomorrow are expected to be in the 40s and
50s.

.LONG TERM...(Friday night through Thursday)
Issued at 111 PM CST Thu Dec 1 2016

A chance of rain and snow exists Friday night into Saturday morning.
An upper level trof will remain well south of the forecast district,
however, there might be enough warm air advection and isentropic lift
for precipitation activity. This is expected mainly for the south. Thermo
profiles are marginal for snow, and if there is accumulation, it will
be very light. The next shot at precipitation comes next week as another
trof moves through. This trof is progged to be closer to the forecast
district, so higher precipitation chances are warranted. The fb pops
look fine for now. Additional snow accumulation is possible with this
second system, although how much is not known at this time.
