National Weather Service Springfield MO
232 AM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017

...Warm With Scattered Rain Chances by Midweek...Then Much Cooler
Behind a Cold Front Later in the Week...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 211 AM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017

The region is in between an upper level ridge to the east and a
deep trough to the west. High pressure is still in control of our
weather pattern today. Upper levels height levels may just be a
tad lower than previous days which means high temperatures may
just be a degree or two cooler than yesterday. Look for
temperatures to climb back into the upper 80s to near 90 degrees
this afternoon. Model guidance suggest a very slight chance for an
isolated shower or storm to pop up this afternoon across the
eastern Ozarks area...mainly east of Highway 65 today.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 211 AM CDT Sun Sep 24 2017

The deep trough over the western U.S. slowly creeps eastward on
Monday and Tuesday. Upper level heights over the area may be
again a tad lower which means high temperatures only in the middle
80s for Monday. Model guidance suggest a slight chance for an
isolated shower or storm over the Central Missouri area Monday
afternoon and evening.

Model guidance shows a better chance for scattered showers and
storms over the western area on Tuesday...mainly west of Highway
65 ahead of a slow moving cold front. No severe weather is
expected. The front slowly moves through the area on Wednesday.
There will be additional chances for isolated to scattered showers
and storms on Wednesday before our rain chances dry up. We do not
expect every location to see rainfall through midweek or much
rainfall if any falls. Rainfall amounts will be on the light side.
A Canadian high pressure system will settle in for the later half
of this upcoming week with much cooler temperatures and dry
weather for the region.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Sunday night)
Issued at 1144 PM CDT Sat Sep 23 2017

An upper level low will drift westward and undercut a ridge over
the area, mainly over the deep south and lower Mississippi valley
region through Sunday. A few showers/storms will be possible
Sunday afternoon, but not enough coverage to warrant a mention in
TAFS this early yet. Have gone with broken VFR ceilings for
several hours during the afternoon however.
