Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
1135 PM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Thursday)
Issued at 221 PM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

A warm and breezy day is underway this afternoon, with area
temperatures within a degree or two of 90 degrees. A cu field has
developed southeast of a Branson to Springfield to Rolla line,
and while a stray shower is possible to close out the afternoon,
things should remain dry for the vast majority of the area.

Later tonight, scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop
north and west of the area as a low level jet interacts with a
slow moving frontal zone. Most activity will remain outside of the
CWA, but a few stray showers/storms may skirt the northwestern-
most tier of counties. Lows tonight will be quite warm, with low
to mid 70s expected.

Thursday should be relatively similar to today, with highs again
around 90.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 221 PM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

The very warm conditions will continue into the weekend, though
scattered thunderstorms will become more common by the end of the
workweek into the weekend as the upper level ridge weakens.
Temperatures will be in the mid to upper 80s each day. A cold
front should eventually push through the area next week, bringing
much more seasonable weather to the region.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Thursday night)
Issued at 1134 PM CDT Wed Sep 20 2017

Expecting VFR conditions to continue through the period. Southerly

may see some gustiness at SGF/JLN.
