.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 312 AM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

A cold front was in the process of moving south across Missouri
early this morning. Despite around 1200 J/KG of instability,
showers and storms were having a difficult time developing.
Widely scattered showers were occurring but convection was rather
limited. This may be due to the gentle slope of the cold front and
little to no upper level support. Showers and storms are still
expected to move across the Ozarks through early this morning.
Storms that do develop will remain below severe limits however.

A cool Canadian airmass will filter into the region behind the
front today with highs only climbing into the middle 70s to near
80 along the Arkansas state line. This will begin a period of
cooler fall weather that will continue for much of the coming week.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 312 AM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

The cool Canadian high will dominate the region`s weather for much
of the coming week. While an upper level short wave will make an
attempt to break down an upper level ridge by mid week, models
have the ridge holding strong and keeping the region dry through
the week and into next weekend.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday Night)
Issued at 1156 PM CDT SAT SEP 20 2014

A cold front is making VERY slow progress south toward the area
early this morning. Have pushed back frontal timing by several
hours with this TAF update. Will maintain mention of VCTS during
the pre-dawn hours, though coverage may end up being rather sparse.
Winds will eventually become northerly mid to late morning as the
front passes.
