(today through Saturday) Issued at 313 AM CDT THU SEP 29 2016 Latest water vapor imagery in addition to RAP 500 mb analysis shows an upper ridge axis extending over the nation`s mid section. This is sandwiched in between a trough to our west and a deep low to our northeast. At the surface, a ridge axis extends from the eastern Dakotas into eastern Nebrsaka. Some patchy fog cannot be ruled out this morning with low dewpoint depressions, light winds and clear skies. Otherwise, dry weather is expected to continue for the forecast area through the weekend with temperatures close to normal for this time of year as the upper low to our northeast continues to spin south of the Great Lakes. .LONG TERM...(Saturday night through Wednesday) Issued at 313 AM CDT THU SEP 29 2016 By Saturday night, the previous mentioned upper low, having moved only slightly, will begin to finally eject northeast into the eastern Great Lakes region while the west coast trough continues to deepen and shift east. Ahead of the west coast trough, strong southerly flow will bring increasing moisture to the Central Plains toward early next week. The next chance of showers/thunderstorms looks to hold off until late Monday or early Tuesday in warm air advection regime. Scattered chances will continue into Wednesday before a cold front slides through the area sometime mid week.
