.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Monday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

A cool and dry Canadian airmass will continue to infiltrate the
area tonight and Monday as we head into the fall season. A
sprawling surface high pressure system will build southward into
the central U.S. This high will be centered over northwestern
Missouri and northeastern Kansas by Monday morning then shift
eastward into Ohio River Valley. The result will be spectacular
weather conditions with highs Monday generally in the lower 70s.

.LONG TERM...(Monday Night through Sunday)
Issued at 215 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

Dry weather and seasonable temperatures are expected as we head
into this first week of fall. A building upper ridge of high
pressure will be the dominant weather feature.

However we will monitor a weakening upper level trough that will
make its way across the Rockies and into the Plains by mid week.
This feature is expected to stall out and diminish with time.
Scattered showers associated with this system could make it as far
east as eastern Kansas but expect precipitation to remain west of
our area at this time.

Otherwise temperatures will gradually warm but remain within
seasonal levels through the week and into next weekend.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Monday Afternoon)
Issued at 1215 PM CDT SUN SEP 21 2014

For the KSGF, KJLN, and KBBG TAFS...VFR conditions are expected at
the TAF sites this afternoon through Sunday morning and beyond.
Gusty northerly winds will occur this afternoon. Surface high
pressure will then begin to slowly build over the area tonight
into Monday, with winds becoming more easterly Monday morning.
