.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Sunday)
Issued at 221 PM CDT SAT OCT 18 2014

It was another beautiful Fall afternoon across the Missouri
Ozarks. Canadian high pressure will settle in tonight with light
and variable winds and clear skies. Temperatures will drop down
into the lower 40s out west and the upper 30s out east. Tomorrow
will be a carbon copy of today with a couple degrees warmer.

.LONG TERM...(Sunday Night through Saturday)
Issued at 221 PM CDT SAT OCT 18 2014

A moisture starved front will move through on Monday. A few more
clouds and maybe an isolated shower or two will be possible. Most
areas will remain dry. A west to southwest wind ahead of the
passage of the front will help temperatures warm into the lower
70s on Monday. Temperatures will drop back into the upper 60s
behind the front on Tuesday. The weather will remain mostly quiet
for the area through most of next week with weak surface high over
the Great Lakes region keeping a light east to northeasterly flow
at the surface. Upper level ridging will block any storm systems
to move across our area. Temperatures will remain right around
seasonable average next week.

The models show an upper level low moving north to south down the
Central Plains region by Thursday into Friday. This may bring a
few isolated showers across portions of southeast Kansas or far
western Missouri. It looks like this system will have minimum if any
impacts on our local area as it moves down into Texas by the end
of the week.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Sunday Afternoon)
Issued at 1215 PM CDT SAT OCT 18 2014

For the KSGF, KJLN, and KBBG TAFS: VFR conditions are expected
this afternoon through Sunday as surface high pressure is over the
region. Winds will be out of the north this afternoon and will
become light and variable tonight before becoming southeasterly
Sunday morning.
