.SHORT TERM...(This Evening through Thursday)
Issued at 0213 PM CST WED FEB 03 2016

Low clouds rotating around the exiting cyclone over the Great
Lakes will clear from west to east late today and tonight. Sfc
high pressure will pass near and just south of the area Thu with a
dry and modest southwest wind. Low dew points should allow for a
nice diurnal temperature swing Thu with highs getting close to
normal for this time of year (mid 40s).

.LONG TERM...(Thursday Night through Wednesday)
Issued at 0213 PM CST WED FEB 03 2016

Fairly quiet weather is expected. Even with a weak frontal
passage Fri night and a much stronger front Sunday night/early
Mon, the general upper level nw flow pattern won`t keep or allow
much moisture to be in place. We`ll carry clouds and low pops for
each system, but precip amounts are expected to be very light.
The cold air behind the front and gusty nw winds Mon night/Tue
morning will likely drop wind chill values down into the single

Medium range global models (ECMWf/GFS) develop a high amplitude
ridge along the west coast of NOAM by Sunday/Mon with very dry
weather expected to continue through midweek (Tue/Wed).

Issued at 1107 PM CST WED FEB 03 2016

A quick moving upper level shortwave will push through the area
during this TAF period, with a surface high pressure system
shifting east to our south. Clouds finally pushed east of the
terminals over the past couple of hours and we should remain in
VFR conditions through the TAF forecast period.
