622 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016

.SHORT TERM...(today through Tuesday)
Issued at 310 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016

Quiet and dry weather continues for the next couple of days with
rain chances returning by Tuesday.

Clear cool morning today with fall-like temperatures and calm or
light winds 6 mph or less. Winds gradually become west through the
day and eventually south toward evening with sunny skies. Temps
rebound today over yesterday and should reach the upper 70s to
lower 80s. The combination of sunny skies, relatively light
winds, and comfortable temps and humidity will result in top 10
day across the region.

Another beautiful day on Monday although temps climb into the mid
80s to lower 90s, and dewpoints also increase again to near 60,
and southerly winds increase to 15 to 30 mph, but dry conditions

Thunderstorm chances return for Tuesday as monsoonal moisture
streams northward as a weak impulse moves out of the central
Rockies. SPC has placed the area in a marginal risk of severe
storms which seems reasonable for now.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 310 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016

Storm chances increase to the likely category Tuesday night, as a
cold front begins to move into the area. That frontal boundary
will still be in the area for Wednesday through Wednesday night
with the best rain chances along/south of I80, with precip south
of the forecast area by daybreak Thursday. Cooler and drier air
expected for Thursday and Friday with highs in the mid to upper
70s. Precip chances increase again by Friday night and Saturday as
the next impulse begins to move onto the plains.


Issued at 621 AM CDT SUN AUG 21 2016

VFR conditions with light and variable winds becoming south or
southwest 6 to 12kts tonight. Included low level wind shear at
KOFK after 06z.
