.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Tuesday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT MON OCT 27 2014

An upper level low was currently moving into the Great Lakes
region this afternoon. Associated surface front is located from a
low over northeast Iowa across northwest Missouri...northeast
Kansas into central Oklahoma. Widely scattered showers and a few
thunderstorms have begun to develop along and behind the front as
the airmass is being lifted isentropically.

Front should approach the CWA after 00z and be all the way through
by 12z. Expect the rain area to increase in coverage through the
evening hours. Some of the stronger cells over the southwest
portion could produce some one inch hail this evening per the SPC

Rain should diminish from northwest to southeast throughout the
day on Tuesday. Temperatures on Tuesday should be about 10-15
degrees cooler than today...but closer to seasonal normals.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday Night through Monday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT MON OCT 27 2014

Once the upper level low makes its way through the Great Lakes upper level ridge will reestablish itself over the
Rockies. An upper level impulse moving along the ridge will bring
some cloudiness on Thursday along with a secondary surge of
Canadian air. Temperatures will be slightly below normal Friday
and Saturday. Will need to monitor the possibility for some
patchy frost over central and south central Missouri on Saturday
morning as lows dip into the mid 30s.

As the upper level ridge approaches the area this weekend...a return
to more seasonal temperatures will occur. The next upper level
system and associated cold front will approach the area Sunday into
Monday bringing the next chance of rain to the region.
