AREA FORECAST DISCUSSION
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE SPRINGFIELD MO
142 PM CST Wed Jan 21 2015

...Quiet Weather Through the Weekend with Slightly Above Average
Temperatures...

.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Thursday)
Issued at 124 PM CST WED JAN 21 2015

After some morning fog...it shaped up to be a fantastic afternoon
across the Missouri Ozarks and southeast Kansas. Temperatures
warmed up to the upper 40s and lower 50s. There may be some high
and mid level clouds on the increase tonight and tomorrow with a
storm system affecting the Four Corners Region and Texas over the
next day or so. Our weather will stay quiet and dry locally.

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 124 PM CST WED JAN 21 2015

Upper level storm system will move along the Gulf Coast Region
through the end of the week and miss our area to the south. High
pressure will stay in control of our weather and a dry northwest
flow. A shortwave will move across the Upper Midwest on Sunday and
push another dry frontal passage through the area. Temperatures
will not be affected that much if any with a Pacific origin to the
airmass. In fact...there may be a little down sloping of the winds
with a westerly component on Sunday afternoon off the High Plains.
This may boost temperatures up a little bit especially over
southeast Kansas and western Missouri.

All and all the weather pattern will be quiet and dry through the
weekend with temperatures running slightly above normal and
sunshine with a few passing clouds. By early next week...there
will be a trough across the eastern one third of the country and
an upper level ridge over the western High Plains and Rockies.
This will continue to bring nice and mild weather to the area.
Could see another little bump in the high temperatures on Tuesday
afternoon with a southwest component to the surface winds. No
significant precip chances in the next 7 days.

.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Thursday Afternoon)
Issued at 1133 AM CST WED JAN 21 2015

Mid level clouds will increase with VFR expected to prevail
through Thursday morning. There are a few weather models
indicating the potential for MVFR visibility later tonight due to
light fog. We have elected to not include a mention of light fog
as the increasing clouds will act to decrease this potential.
