.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 1234 AM CST Fri Jan 12 2018

A much more tranquil weather day is expected across southwest Kansas.
Winds will be much weaker than compared to yesterday. Winds will be
light and variable as high pressure moves across the greater region.
There will be a weak upper level disturbance that will move in from
the northwest late this afternoon and tonight. Weak frontogenesis could
lead to light snow showers along and north of Highway 96. Only a few
tenths of snow accumulation is expected, and that is being on the generous
side. Otherwise, low stratus will develop, particularly for the northeastern
counties. This will keep highs only in the teens. Weak caa through
the day as resulted in lower temperatures across the forecast district.
The warmest readings are expected near the Colorado border. Lows tonight
will be cold with single digits to a few teens.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday through Thursday)
Issued at 1234 AM CST Fri Jan 12 2018

Mainly quiet weather will continue through the long term period. There
may be some light flurries/light snow on Monday in association with
the next cold surge. The low pops from the fb grids look fine for now.
The extended looks guidance shows a roller coaster of temperatures
with downslope warming followed by cooling as fropas occur.
