...18z Aviation Forecast Update...

.SHORT TERM...(Today and Tonight)
Issued at 217 AM CDT MON SEP 22 2014

A broad area of Canadian High pressure was settling over the
region bringing clear skies and cooler temperatures to the Ozarks.
This will result in a very nice day across the region today as
temperatures only climb into the lower 70s this afternoon despite
a sunny sky.

As the high begins to slide to the east this evening and overnight,
temperatures are expected to fall into the upper 40s across the
eastern Ozarks to the lower 50s along the Kansas state line.

.LONG TERM...(Tuesday through Sunday)
Issued at 217 AM CDT MON SEP 22 2014

The Canadian high will be in the process of moving east on
Tuesday as an upper level trough attempts to push its way to the
east across the Plains. Models bring the trough across the region
by mid week as an upper level ridge slows its eastward

The trough will finally make its way over Missouri late Wednesday
night into Thursday. However, by that time, any moisture that is left
after moving the upper ridge out of the way will be mostly spent.
As a result the trough will become cutoff over the area and begin
to retrograde to the west under a building upper level ridge and
become trapped. This will also allow the Canadian high to shift
west and back into the area for the end of the work week.

An upper level low/trough will then push onto the west coast over
next weekend and become the next potential weather maker for the
region for the start of next week.


.AVIATION...(For the 18Z TAFS through 18Z Tuesday Afternoon)
Issued at 1150 AM CDT MON SEP 22 2014

Beautiful flying conditions will continue through the next 24
hours for all terminals around the Missouri Ozarks. VFR will
prevail with light easterly winds less than 10 knots.
