Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Wichita KS
535 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday night)
Issued at 207 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

A strong frontal system will begin to approach the region today.
This will allow some good WWA to take place as the winds pick up
from the South.  This will allow temperatures to remain well above
normal for today as the skies will be clear with Southerly winds.
Tuesday, the front will begin to move through the region.  Due to
very weak moisture transport ahead of this system, any precipitation
that occurs is expected to occur in Northern Kansas and Southern
Nebraska. For most of Kansas, this front will come through dry. High
temperatures for Tuesday, on the other hand, will likely occur
early.  High temperatures will be above normal but are expected to
occur around noon on Tuesday for much of central Kansas and then
drop through the afternoon.  Once the front comes through, the winds
will shift to the West and Northwest and will pick up. Wind gusts up
to 30 mph are possible.  Do not see advisory level winds for Tuesday
afternoon and Wednesday.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 207 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

Temperatures will return to normal for a few days as a number of
systems come through.  These systems will not have much if any
moisture transport to help them produce precipitation.  As such,
they will come through dry.  This will keep winds out of the North
for the most part and will keep temperatures closer to normal for a
while.  Temperatures don`t start to climb back above normal until
Sunday.

.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Tuesday morning)
Issued at 528 AM CST Mon Jan 23 2017

Other than some light fog over southeast Kansas early this morning VFR
conditions will prevail for all TAF sites across central/southern
Kansas. Southerly winds will return this afternoon and increase
across central Kansas.
