Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Springfield MO
631 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 213 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Most if not all of the storm activity has ended early this
morning across the region. There may be some showers or an
isolated rumble of thunder for mainly portions of south central
Missouri that linger through sunrise, but otherwise little
additional activity is expected today.

High pressure will work its way into the Ozarks through this
morning and be in control of the area`s weather through tonight.
Temperatures this afternoon will be in the middle to upper 70s
with mostly sunny skies by this afternoon.

.LONG TERM...(Monday through Saturday)
Issued at 213 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

The surface high will remain in control of the region`s weather
through Memorial Day with temperatures around 80 degrees and
mostly sunny skies. Overall, Monday looks to be a great day for
outdoor activities.

The upper level flow for Tuesday through Thursday looks to be
northwesterly. This is in response to a ridge that builds just
east of the Rockies. Several reinforcing surface highs will slide
out of Canada and across the Plains which should help to keep
rain chances limited. A persistent cut-off upper low over the
Great Lakes may swing pieces of energy through the upper level
flow and bring slight chances for showers and storms between the
surface highs in the form of weak cold fronts. None of this
activity looks severe at this time.

A second upper low will swing into the Great Lakes region towards
the end of the week. This will bring a bit stronger cold front
across the Plains and the Ozarks for the end of the week and into
early next weekend. This will bring the next chance for showers
and storms to the area.


.AVIATION...(For the 12Z TAFS through 12Z Monday morning)
Issued at 626 AM CDT Sun May 28 2017

Low MVFR to IFR cloud cover this morning will impact the regions
terminals through 13z to 15z. Improving conditions are expected
later this morning into this afternoon with VFR ceilings occuring
until skies clear this evening.
