.SHORT TERM...(Today through Wednesday night)
Issued at 324 AM CST MON NOV 30 2015

A weak warm front will lift north across the region today, but it
will not be significant enough to even generate much in the way of
precipitation. The warm frontal passage is associated with a
rather intense upper level low that will be moving northeast
through the northern Plains/upper Midwest. A cold front will be
quick to follow tonight, and will produce a better chance of
showers, especially in wrn KY and sw IN where moisture will have a
better opportunity to return. Still looks as though instability
will be nil, so will continue to keep thunder out of the forecast.

Some rain may linger in the far east/southeast into Tuesday
morning, but it still appears that we will finally dry out Tuesday
afternoon and Tuesday night as cooler air filters into the region.
Highs by Wednesday will only be in the 40s despite ample sun.
Will stay close to consensus for highs and lows through the

.LONG TERM...(Thursday through Sunday)
Issued at 324 AM CST MON NOV 30 2015

Models are in good agreement showing surface high pressure in
control of our weather through the extended.  The high will be
centered west of our region on Thursday, moving northeast of the PAH
forecast area by 12z Friday.  The high will meander over the eastern
United States through the weekend.  Relative humidity time heights
show very dry air in place late in the work week into the weekend,
so we will have mostly clear skies through the period. Temperatures
will start out just a bit below seasonal normals on Thursday, with a
very gradual moderating trend Saturday into Sunday as winds become
more southerly.


Issued at 1132 PM CST SUN NOV 29 2015

With a quasi-stationary system hung up across the region coupled
with deep moisture, LIFR/IFR cigs/vsbys will continue at all
sites through the period. Periods of rain and/or drizzle are
possible through 00Z. Through 00Z, winds will generally continue
out of the north northeast AOB 10 knots, then swing around to the
east southeast to southeast AOB 5 knots.
