Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
256 PM CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Tonight through Sunday)
Issued at 254 PM CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

Weak cold front approaching I-35 in Kansas to lose its upper
support as the mid level shortwave advects quickly into Canada.
The lack of a strong low level jet tonight places uncertainty in
the coverage of precipitation to begin with and the southwest
orientation should slow the eastward progression into SW MO.
Further convective inhibition points toward limited chances for
thunderstorms, so bottom line this system won`t end our dry spell.

Clouds and some slight cool advection will knock temperatures back
on Sunday.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 245 AM CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

Next shortwave to migrate even further north across the Canadian
prairie and associated front will again lose its support as it
approaches the region Wednesday so similar questions exist in just
how much relief may be expected with this system as well.

Otherwise mild weather to continue compliments of the maintenance
of the southwest flow.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday afternoon)
Issued at 1246 CDT Sat Sep 16 2017

VFR conditions will prevail through the evening. Scattered SHRA
will move in to southwest Missouri toward midnight with best
chances north of both the KJLN and KSGF terminals. Isolated TSRA
cannot be ruled out...though do not anticipate it to be a
widespread threat. Rain chance will then diminish after sunrise as
low level jet diminishes.
