.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Monday)
Issued at 204 PM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

A large shield of precipitation occurring on the backside of a
strong storm system moving across the Deep South will gradually
end later this afternoon. North to northwest winds have started to
become quite gusty this afternoon, and will continue at a good
pace through the evening hours. Lows tonight will fall into the
mid 30s as colder air is advected into the region.

Skies should then clear during the day on Monday, as upper level
ridging builds into the area. Temperatures will remain on the
cooler side, though still above average for the time of year.

.LONG TERM...(Monday Night through Sunday)
Issued at 204 PM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

With upper level ridging solidly overhead on Tuesday and southerly
flow developing at the surface, temperatures will warm nicely into
the 60s in most areas.

A strong but generally dry cold front will then pass through the
area Tuesday night into Wednesday, bringing with it a return to
move average temperatures. Highs from Wednesday through at least
next Sunday look to be in the low to perhaps mid 40s, with
overnight lows in the 20s. With zonal flow aloft and dry northerly
low level flow, precipitation chances look quite low during this


.AVIATION...(For the 06Z TAFS through 06Z Monday night)
Issued at 1125 PM CST Sun Jan 22 2017

A secondary band of light rain has developed in an area from
Branson to Lake of the Ozarks and will affect the BBG terminal for
a couple hours at the onset of the 06z tafs. Otherwise, slow
clearing trend is expected with IFR and MVFR conditions expected
until around mid morning to midday Monday. After that, clearing
should take place with VFR conditions expected.
