Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
505 PM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Wednesday night)
Issued at 239 PM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

A more prolonged period with drizzle and fog are expected to
materialize on Monday and Monday night while lingering through
Tuesday into Wednesday morning across portions of the area as
rich low level moisture advects north across the area. Another
cold front arriving across the area late Tuesday night into
Wednesday morning should force the deeper moisture south and east
of the area.

A storm or two may develop ahead of the front on Tuesday night/early
Wed but higher probabilities will likely remain north and east of
the area. A Pacific airmass in the wake of the front will keep highs
around 60 on Wed.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 239 PM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

Another round of low clouds, drizzle and perhaps some fog may
arrive in the Thu-Fri timeframe as low level moisture returns
north ahead of a vigorous shortwave trough progged to emerge from
the Rockies on Fri. We may see a few storms over far eastern
Kansas, but limited instability will likely preclude more
widespread strong or severe activity. Dry weather conditions and
seasonable temperatures are anticipated over the weekend.

.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Monday evening)
Issued at 501 PM CST Sun Nov 12 2017

Northerly flow will again take hold over the region this evening
and overnight. This northeast flow will prevent the moisture from
being removed from the region which will allow for the possibility
for some MVFR ceilings and visibilities at SLN, HUT, ICT and CNU.
RSL and GBD are expected to remain VFR for the most part. Best
chance for fog will be in the early morning hours which should
give way to clearing a few hours after sunrise.
