-- Changed Discussion --
(Tonight through Wednesday) Issued at 320 PM CST Sun Dec 10 2017 Large scale flow over the CONUS will be stagnant over the next several days with mean ridging west/trof east. However, a series of of shortwaves dropping out of Canada into the northern/central Plains will be the only one to bring a threat for precip to the region Monday afternoon. Cold air advection spills into the region tonight/Monday as a clipper-type surface low digs southward through the upper midwest into the mid MS valley. Models in agreement that is where the bulk of precip activity will occur. It does appear though a sliver of the northern CWA may see a drop or two Monday afternoon. The next shortwave moving through on Wednesday drags another cold front with it. However, the models are favoring areas well to the east of the CWA for precip activity. Cold conditions Monday-Thursday morning with highs topping out generally in the low/mid 40s...overnight lows in the 20s. .LONG TERM...(Wednesday night through Sunday) Issued at 320 PM CST Sun Dec 10 2017 Models prog a bit more progressing pattern heading into next weekend. However, only a small chance for seeing any precip on Saturday morning. Well above normal temps expected in the extended periods with highs generally in the mid/upper 40s and lows in the mid 20s.
