...00z Aviation Forecast Update...

.SHORT TERM...(This evening through Tuesday)

Unbelievable weather for outdoor activities were observed over
extreme southeast Kansas and the Missouri Ozarks. Temperatures
warmed into the 70s, under sunny skies and light breezes.

It`s going to be a very cool night as temperatures fall into the
40s. It wouldn`t surprise anyone if some of the more sheltered and
deeper valleys in the eastern ozarks cools into the 30s tonight.

For Tuesday, similar conditions are expected with highs once again
in the 70s.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday Night through Monday)

Not much changes over the next 7 days. The sensible weather will
be mild and dry. Temperatures in the 70s on an afternoon basis can
be expected through the work week and into the weekend. Overnight
lows will vary from the 40s to the 50s.

A large upper level low currently centered over Lake Superior will
build southward into the eastern United States. This feature will
block the overall pattern for several days, and offer northwest
flow across the Ozarks. This will shut down any Gulf moisture feed
northward, and keep conditions mild and dry.


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Tuesday evening)
Issued at 515 PM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

VRF conditions with no aviation concerns. Light winds and clear




LONG TERM...Cramer
