.DISCUSSION...
Issued at 240 PM CDT SUN MAY 31 2015

Drier air and mixing has allowed roughly half of the forecast area
to enjoy a sunny day, while the remainder of the CWA has been kept
under low clouds. The KC Metro may see a few more breaks in the
clouds during the remainder of the afternoon. Otherwise, recent
trends and high-resolution models suggest scattered to broken
coverage of low clouds to fill back in over currently some clear
areas tonight. Weatherwise, it will be a quiet and cool night with
lows in the lower 50s. If a few breaks in the clouds can occur over
east central Kansas into west central Missouri where readings can
efficiently cool where the highest moisture resides, there may be
some patchy fog overnight. Model spread is high and overall
confidence in fog scenario is low.

Upper level ridging will build into the region early this work week,
keeping the appreciable weather relatively tranquil. The ridge
flattens some Wednesday into Friday, allowing for a few weak upper
disturbances to slide into the area. This may allow for an increase
in thunderstorm chances, but coverage is expected to be scattered,
short-lived, and not severe as deep layer shear for organized
convection will be weak. High temperatures will be on the increase
through the week, with readings warming into 80s for most locations
Thursday into the weekend.
