.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Saturday)
Issued at 0212 PM CDT FRI OCT 02 2015

The very nice weather across the region will continue through
tonight and for the beginning of the weekend as cool Canadian high
pressure and short wave ridging controls the regions weather.
Light breezes from the northeast will also continue with the high
to our northeast.

Temperatures will fall into the lower to middle 40s across the are
tonight with afternoon highs on Saturday expected to be similar
to today with highs in the 60s.

.LONG TERM...(Saturday Night through Friday)
Issued at 0212 PM CDT FRI OCT 02 2015

An upper level ridge that will start to move over the area this
weekend will keep dry weather in the forecast into the middle of
next week with temperatures slowly climbing from highs in the 60s
on Sunday to the upper 70s by Wednesday.

A pattern shift is expected for late Wednesday into Thursday of
next week. Models have shown this the past few runs but the
timing continues to change. Will need to watch this potential for
showers and storms for next week but at this point, there is the
support for a cold front to move through the region Wednesday
night into Thursday. This remains the best chance for rain over
the next 7 days with cool air returning to the Ozarks behind this


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Saturday Afternoon)
Issued at 1221 PM CDT FRI OCT 02 2015

Batch of stratus over the eastern Ozarks has stopped its westerly
trek. As a result, VFR conditions are expected over the next 24
hours. North/northeast winds will persist through the forecast,
with gusts during the daylight hours.
