...00z Aviation Update...

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)

You wouldn`t have known it by the sensible weather, but a
shortwave trough did pass over southern Missouri this morning. A
dry airmass kept any precipitation from developing. Meanwhile we
had some dense fog in a few spots, which all burned off by mid

The dry airmass in place will allow temperatures to cool into the
40s over the eastern Ozarks tonight. Warmer readings are expected
to the west, with middle 50s near Joplin and Pittsburg.

The warming trend will experience a boost on Sunday, as afternoon
temperatures warm into the 80s. Mostly sunny skies will persist
on Sunday, and no rain is expected.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)

Our next upper disturbance and cold front will arrive during the
early morning hours of Monday. Again it appears as though the
Ozarks airmass will be too dry to generate any precipitation.
Surface winds will shift to the north, bringing low temperatures
into the 40s Monday night / Tuesday morning.

Readings will bounce back into the 70s Tuesday afternoon as
another warming trend will ensue.

From Wednesday through Saturday of next week, the primary belt of
westerlies will be positioned across the upper Midwest / Great
Lakes Region. This pattern will bring dry and beautiful weather to
the Ozarks, with highs in the 70s and 80s on an afternoon basis
through the end of next week.

No precipitation chances are expected over the next 7 to 10 days.

Have a great weekend !


.AVIATION...(For the 00Z TAFS through 00Z Sunday Evening)
Issued at 0621 PM CDT SAT OCT 10 2015

VFR conditions are expected through the period. There is a very
subtle signal at some fog for BBG, however, not confident enough
in the odds to mention for now. Looks like mostly a wind forecast
over the next 24hrs. High pressure will continue to move east
allowing for a southerly winds to take shape. Winds may be a bit
gusty Sunday afternoon.
