Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
232 AM CDT Tue Sep 26 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 230 AM CDT Tue Sep 26 2017

A cold front is currently pushing east into the area early this
morning as an upper level trough pushes into the northern Plains.
A few showers have developed across Kansas and will spread east
into southeastern Kansas and far western Missouri this morning.
This activity will likely dissipate as it spreads into the area
later this morning. This afternoon and evening some
isolated/scattered showers and perhaps a few storms will then
develop along the front, but widespread rainfall is not expected
as this activity will likely be hit and miss in nature. No severe
weather will occur.

A cooler air mass will start to spread into the area from the
northwest behind the front, while warmer conditions will remain in
place ahead of the front. This will result in temperatures
ranging from the upper 70s across southeastern Kansas and far
western Missouri to the upper 80s across south central Missouri
this afternoon.

A few showers could linger across the area tonight into Wednesday
as the system moves through the area.

.LONG TERM...(Wednesday through Monday)
Issued at 230 AM CDT Tue Sep 26 2017

Surface high pressure and a cooler air mass will spread into the
area behind the front, as highs in the 70s and lows in the 50s
will occur each afternoon into the weekend. Temperatures in the
lower 80s may then return early next week ahead of an approaching
upper level trough.


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Tuesday night)
Issued at 1143 PM CDT Mon Sep 25 2017

A few showers were developing near an outflow over southeast
Kansas and western Missouri and may be in the vicinity of JLN at
the onset of the 06z TAFS. Ceilings were still out of reach of the
ASOS ceilometers so much of this activity probably not reaching
the ground yet. Will see ceilings continue to drop through the
forecast period and may have some MVFR developing late in the
period. Will also have some rain shower chances late tonight and
into Tuesday. Cold front will push west to east during the day
with winds becoming northerly.
