A slow-moving large upper trough over the northern CONUS will make
its way into the Great Lakes through the weekend. The surface cold
front has steadily pushed southward to the Arkansas Ozarks, with
high pressure projected to build into the central Plains over the
weekend. The end result will be a dry forecast tonight through the
weekend, with spectacular temperatures in store for the area.
Afternoon temperatures will generally reside in the 70s with lows in
the 50s.

Weak isentropic ascent and the approach of an embedded disturbance
within the upper trough may result in elevated convection Sunday
night into Monday morning. Limited instability should preclude much
of a severe weather concern with this early week activity.
Thereafter, upper ridging builds throughout the Plains ahead of
the next upper trough, with steadily increasing temperatures
Tuesday into Thursday. Thunderstorm chances will be on the
increase late in the week as the aforementioned trough moves
through the region.
