Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
623 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday Night)
Issued at 402 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

Today:
Headline:
Wind Advisory Remains In Effect For All Of Central & South-Central
KS.

The first of a couple mid-upper shortwaves will move E over the
Rockies to induce sfc cyclogenesis over CO & NM. The rapid
movement of the shortwave would have Central KS W of I-135
experiencing their strongest winds late this morning with the
remainder of Central & South-Central KS experiencing their
strongest S winds this afternoon.

Tonight-Wed Night:
Multiple shortwaves moving E across the Nrn & Central Plains will
produce a predominantly rainy period. The greatest threat for
strong/severe thunderstorms should occur Tue Night when a strong &
deep wave digs SW from an intense cyclone (centered over MN) to
Kern MN. Rain should gradually end in a W-E manner Wed Night as
the wave continues to track E. The passage of this wave will sweep
a cold front SE across KS to produce much cooler weather Wed &
Wed Night.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 402 AM CDT Mon Apr 24 2017

Multiple shortwaves will move E across the Plains almost in an
assembly line manner. This would result in very rainy periods,
especially over the weekend. Pin-pointing the timing & locations
of the heaviest rains is a bit problematic as the GFS & ECMWF
diverge in their overall patterns.

VFR conditions are expected for the next 24 hours. influence of the

morning hours and again after 06z/Wed. so will add this mention with
winds at 2000 ft agl around 45 kts.
