.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 255 AM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017

A quiet and pleasant autumn day is in store for southeast Kansas and
the Missouri Ozarks today. Surface high pressure will be overhead
resulting in light winds, sunny skies and pleasantly cool
temperatures, with afternoon highs in the mid 60s which is just
slightly below the seasonal normals.

The high will begin to slide east of the area tonight. The coldest
temperatures will be across the eastern Ozarks, where lows will
touch the upper 30s to around 40, while further west, southerly
winds will keep lows from dropping much past the middle 40s.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 255 AM CDT Mon Oct 16 2017

Northwest upper flow initially will become zonal by midweek and then
to a building ridge over the lower Mississippi Valley by the end of
Friday. This will set up an extended warming trend, with little
in the way of precipitation for the week. The next chance for
precipitation will not come until next weekend when troughing
across the western conus finally begins to move eastward pushing a
cold into the region late Saturday. This will set the stage for
rain chances from Saturday night into Monday.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday afternoon)

Pilots flying in and out of the southwest Missouri airports can
expect VFR conditions over the next 24 hours.

Canadian high pressure allowed for fair weather across much of the
nation`s midsection today. Light and variable winds were observed
under full sunshine.

Light south winds are expected tomorrow as high pressure moves off
to the east.

Safe Travels.
