.SHORT TERM...(Today and tonight)
Issued at 246 AM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

Light rain continued to fall early this morning along the I-44
corridor. The cold front had made its way through the region with
the lingering post frontal rainfall associated with the 700-850MB
front. This band of light rain will continue to slowly sag to the
southeast this morning finally exiting or tapering off shortly
after sunrise.

Canadian high pressure and upper level northwesterly flow will
work to limit afternoon highs to around the 70 degree mark today.
This will come with lower humidities and produce a very nice day
for the Ozarks.

The overall weather pattern will be little changed from today
through tonight allowing for clear skies and cooler temperatures
will lows in the 40s expected.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 246 AM CDT Mon Sep 26 2016

The center of the country is in for a banner week of weather. The
Ozarks will remain on the eastern edge of an upper level ridge
with reinforcing rounds of Canadian high pressure moving south
through the plains.

The pattern this week will bring highs in the 70s and lows in the
40s each day with a slow warming trend into the weekend. No rain
is forecast by any of the models for the next 10 days. Enjoy.
