000 FXUS63 KOAX 261719 AFDOAX Area Forecast Discussion National Weather Service Omaha/Valley NE 1219 PM CDT MON SEP 26 2016 .SHORT TERM...(today through Wednesday) Issued at 241 AM CDT MON SEP 26 2016 Cool fall-like conditions are expected to continue today as a 1030 mb surface high over the CO/WY border slowly drifts southeast. Aloft, northwesterly flow remains overhead with a large 500 mb low centered over southern Ontario. This mid-upper low is forecast to slowly move southeast across the Great Lakes region and into the Ohio Valley by late Wednesday. This will likely push a cold front into the region from the east along with a potential increase in cloud cover. Main forecast change was to lower Wednesday`s highs to account for the stronger cold air advection. Otherwise, dry conditions will continue as moisture remains very limited. .LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Sunday) Issued at 241 AM CDT MON SEP 26 2016 Medium range models are in good agreement at the start of the forecast period as an upper level ridge is progged to build over the nation`s mid section and persist through late week. By the weekend, an elongated upper trough will move onto the west coast while the upper ridge shifts east. Return southerly flow will set up in the low levels allowing some return of moisture to the area. Next chance of any precipitation is late in the weekend but even that looks weak. && .AVIATION...(18Z TAFS for KOFK...KLNK and KOMA.)
