.SHORT TERM...(today through Tuesday)
Issued at 311 AM CST Sun Feb 12 2017

Quiet weather in the short term. Breezy northwesterly winds today
with mostly sunny skies. While temps will still be above normal in
the mid 40s, the winds will make it feel a little brisk.

High pressure moves overhead tonight, with lows dropping into the
teens and 20s. Return flow sets up on Monday, which should help
boost temps back into the lower 50s, well above normal.

There is a weather system that will move through the southern
Plains Monday. The KS/NE border will be on the northern fringe of
this system. A few showers will be possible across northeast KS,
and the ECMWF hinted there could be a few sprinkles south of I80,
but will keep precip out of our forecast area for now.

Tuesday will still see well above normal temps, but just slightly
cooler than Monday as a weak cool front moves in Monday night.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday night through Saturday)
Issued at 311 AM CST Sun Feb 12 2017

The extended forecast will be characterized by ridging aloft and
well above normal temps and dry conditions. In fact, we`ve
trended the forecast warmer than model blends Thursday through
Saturday. Friday should be the warmest day with highs in the lower
to mid 60s!


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday afternoon)
