VFR with scattered high clouds. Wind will be light and variable
tonight then pick up out of the S to SW tomorrow by afternoon.

PREV DISCUSSION... /issued 114 PM CST Sun Nov 19 2017/

DISCUSSION...
Generally northwesterly flow aloft is expected through Tuesday.
This flow will allow a surface lee trough to form tonight and
Monday. Temperatures will rebound to slightly above normal values
on Monday as southwesterly downslope flow kicks in with plenty of
sunshine.

An upper level trough moving across the northern tier of states
will drag another dry cold front south through the forecast area
on Tuesday with windy conditions developing behind it. There is a
chance that advisory levels winds may be reached in portions of
the forecast area Tuesday. Later shifts will need to monitor for
this possibility. Only slight cooling to slightly below normal
temperatures is expected behind this front Wednesday as most of
the cooler air will be bottled up well to the northeast of the
forecast area in the Great Lakes and Ohio Valley closer to the
upper level system.

Beyond Wednesday the weather continues to look dry with above
normal temperatures developing as northwesterly flow aloft
transitions to northerly flow with an upper level ridge
approaching the region from the Pacific.
